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.

While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
