Edwards Drive-In, home of the legendary, handmade pork tenderloin, hand-dipped onion rings and homemade root beer, celebrated its 60th anniversary Friday.
The occasion was marked by 60 cent coneys, a cruise-in, rollback prices on food, prizes, a 1950s impersonator, face painting and free Edi logo Frisbees with the purchase of a sandwich.
Edwards, 2126 S. Sherman Drive, originally opened as a Dog ’n Suds drive-in Aug. 10, 1957, and was owned and managed by Herb Edwards and his son, Tom, before being passed down to Tom’s son and daughter, Jeff and Terri.
The diner, which can seat 165 patrons, has thrived throughout the decades. Customers from throughout central Indiana continually flock to the restaurant because of its excellent food. The curb-side service offers a throwback to the 1950s.
Edwards is also known for its burgers, chicken, fish and pulled pork barbecue sandwiches, chili and salads. Chicken, fish and shrimp dinners are also served, and a catering service is available.
