This is great family owned restaurant in Lebanon. Customer service is always great whether I dine in or do the drive thru. My absolute favorite is their spicy tacos!! Their mozzarella sticks, tenderloins, and ice cream is amazing too! Also, make sure to get a vanilla coke when you go!

I have been here several times and it is a great lunch spot. Today I ordered the Chili and grilled cheese sandwich which hit the spot. They have all types of sandwiches, tacos,and gyros. The menu is full of things to choose from. They specialize in ice cream too.

Nice diner decor, friendly service, good food, great prices and larger menu than I expected. My daughter ordered a taco and fried mozzarella cheese. I ordered the double cheese burger. We really enjoyed them. We will stop again when we are in the area.

We stop for lunch at Milky Way at least once a week. The food is made fresh upon order so it's always hot and tasty. Service is pleasant and quick and there's plenty of dine-in seating. My absolute favorite is the breaded tenderloin - which is huge - but the tacos are second to none. Everything is fantastic!

Milky Way makes ice cream shakes and good coneys. They have tasty tenderloins and flavored cokes too! Been in business a long time and we love being able to go there in the winter.

This is a delightful local “drive in” type restaurant. Someone on my Facebook page posted a link to “These 9 Indiana Towns Might Be Tiny… But Their Restaurants Are Amazing”. I looked over the list and since I had a weekend trip planed to northern Indiana, I decided to try one or two along the way. It is located only... More

This is a cute little hole in the wall, nothing fancy but great place to stop. We had a light lunch that included deliciously light battered onion rings - wonderful! Also had a hot dog & cheeseburger. Both were good. Topped it off with ice cream, Everything is extremely reasonably priced & by the crowds that came & went, a... More

This tiny diner is about 1 mile off of the Interstate but it sure beats the chain restaurants found along most stops. It's not fancy and it's hard to give it more than three stars - but they are well deserved and it's a good stop for lunch or dinner. Burgers use fresh beef from the butcher down the road... More

Have eaten there many times over a 20 year period. Have probably tried everything on the menu at least once. Used to eat lunch there all the time. Great onion rings.
