We have always had their tenderloins at Edwards for many years, which I feel are the best in central Indiana. I had received a free coupon for their chicken tenders with order and really glad we did! The chicken tenders were delicious, very good size, juicy, included cold slaw, fries, and Texas toast. The order was big enough to take... More

Edward's Drive-In is actually a diner w/ a 50's flair. The decor is fun & true to the era, complete w/ a jukebox. We had tenderloins, onion rings, chicken strips, & fries. The chicken & onion rings were the stars; but the other food was good, too! Oh! & I can't forget the hot fudge shake-yum! Ask for a spoon-you... More

If you are a fan of the breaded tenderloin, this is a must stop! They also have very good chili and their rootbeer is served in an ice cold mug!

When entering the building you feel all of the very nostalgic feelings of an old Diner. It was a little pricey my son had the Big E and said that it was a little dry on the bottom I had the giant breaded tenderloin onion rings we shared and there was plenty to do that. I was a little upset... More

Edward's Drive-In takes you back in time. The juke box and the atmosphere makes you fell like you have step back to the 60s. The tenderloin sandwich reminds me of the type I grew up eating, big and flat. The root beer is served in a frosty mug and is great,

I have had much better tenderloins and I been to much cooler classic drive ins. Price was right, but .25 for a bit of shredded lettuce. Give me a break.
