Deluxe tenderloin or Coney w/onions, onion rings, and a root beer--now we're talking good eating! A neighborhood and childhood favorite continues today (along with their food truck Dashboard Diner).

Everything from service to food was great. Enjoyed this place since a teenager and now take grand children who love it too. They make their own root beer too, it was wonderful.

Rated as having the #1 tenderloin in Indianapolis, the onion rings are spectacular, too. Plan on eating every crumb of the rings (they don't reheat well.). Don't miss creamy root beer in a frosty mug.

It has been decades since I have been to Edwards. I found myself in the neighborhood today and remembered the tenderloin and FFO (onion rings). The tenderloin is very thin but good. The onion rings were great. Who says memories are better than reality. Lunch...More

Nice place with a good draw. The frosty root beer really hit the spot. I enjoy a good tenderloin, but theirs was rather bland and uneventful. Dry and seemed like a processed and out of the box type. Each condiment was .29 additional fee. Their...More
