You can get your tenderloin grilled, but this is Indiana, so breaded is the way to go.

Through the rip in the beef, you can spot some of the onion peeking out. Most customers order their onion burgers on toast.

Although this chocolate Coke was fine, I think vanilla goes better with Coke.

The Lemon Drop is small enough that you will most likely have a wait during peak meal times.
