BEST OF INDY 2018 WINNER: Best Tenderloin
In Indiana, the pork tenderloin is akin to religion. That being said, go make the pilgrimage to this historic west side drive in and pay homage to the prince of pork. Wash it down with a root beer float and party like it’s 1959.
Did somebody say tenderloin sandwich? The Mug n Bun drive-in restaurant's patty is pounded out wide, then fried to a crisp, just the way it should be. Some things that never change here: favorite onion rings, Dad's root beer floats, dogs, fries, double cheeseburgers and more. Be sure to grab some cash (they don't take credit cards) and eat a nice pork sandwich or a Coney dog covered in fried chili and wash it down with some homemade root beer in a thick, frosty mug.
