These 9 Amazing Indiana Restaurants Are Loaded With Local History

We all know (and love!) St. Elmo’s, The Rathskeller, and Shapiro’s Delicatessen in Indianapolis, Little Sheba’s in Richmond, and Nick’s Kitchen in Huntington… but we went looking for some other amazing restaurants that offer the unique experience of grabbing a bite to eat in a spot that has survived a century (or more!) of Indiana life. These 9 restaurants were selected for both their food and their histories.

The Hoosier State is full of wonderful hidden gems like these–far too many to fit in a single list! Do you have a favorite spot that serves up food with a side dish of history? Tell us about it in the comments section below!
