Lemon Drop

1701 Mounds Road, Anderson, IN - (765) 644-9055
Posted By r j lehman on 8/22/2013 10:53:00 AM
We had a little trouble finding the place -- it's on a lesser road by the railroad tracks. Very picturesque, as it turned out. And very small -- only two regular booths, one corner booth, a mini (two-seater), and some (unusually comfortable) counter stools.

My wife made the better choices. She had the lemon milk shake and the onion burger, both of them first rate: the shake was the best shake of any kind I've ever had, and the onion burger was no slouch either. I had the pork tenderloin and onion rings. The tenderloin looked -- and tasted -- as though it had been frozen in a factory where parts were just parts. The rings were good, crispy and tasty.

The place was clean and decorated with 50's items and includes a large gauge train that runs around near the ceiling. The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. (And so young!) We'll be back the next time we go to Indy.

p.s. The lemon shake looked just like the picture on this page.

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.

With a name like Lemon Drop, it comes as no surprise that the building is painted yellow.
