Whether you’re the world’s craft cheeseburger connoisseur, a culturephile looking for a Hawaiian vacation right in your backyard or a local food fanatic seeking nature’s bounty all in one place, Hamilton County, Indiana has something just for you. Check out some of Yelp’s favorite things to do, see and eat along the Monon Trail.

It’s a rite of passage for every kid from Indiana - that first taste of our state’s culinary history, the edges of deep fried crunchiness dangling past the bun. No self-respecting Hoosier parent would deny their children the chance to partake in this celebration of Midwest flavor. That’s why I recently set out to introduce my son to the venerable pork tenderloin sandwich.

A Tale of Two Tenderloins

Monday, July 3, 2017 by Andrea Davis

As a native Hoosier, I’ve eaten hundreds of breaded tenderloin sandwiches. I don’t really need a reason to indulge in crispy pork goodness, but I’m a creature of habit, so I welcome Tenderloin Tuesdays every summer as a reminder to try something new.

This year, I followed the Tenderloin Trail to Carmel, where husband-and-wife team Kevin “Woody” and Chef Richelle Rider own two distinctively different eateries, each with its own take on the unofficial state sandwich.
