Rosie’s Place opened its doors on the square in downtown Noblesville in 2010 and quickly became a local favorite, with the charming vintage interior featuring exposed brick walls. With plans to open a Carmel location in late September 2018 at Olivia on Main, the love for Rosie’s keeps growing.

Here in Hamilton County, we have more than 500 miles of trails to explore by foot or bike. But we’re also home to a rather tasty trail unlike any other: the Tenderloin Trail, a meandering path that celebrates the uniquely Hoosier sandwich.

We take our tenderloins seriously here – in fact, we made our own semi-holiday called Tenderloin Tuesdays where foodies can feast on tenderloins and take advantage of great deals at more than 25 participating local restaurants on Tuesdays June 26-July 31, 2018.

Before we send you off on your dining adventure, read through our Tenderloin 101 crash course so you’re in the know on what’s between the bread.

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines: the greatest month in racing has arrived! Speedway, Indiana may be the epicenter of epic action, but the celebrations extend throughout the central Indiana community. We’re proud to partner with our friends at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a collaborative effort to promote the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 throughout the region.

Here are 10 ways to toast to the race on Indy's northside.

Hamilton County is one of the fastest-growing areas in Indiana and the country, and our destination shows no signs of slowing down in 2018. We've compiled a list of the can't-miss, must-do things this year. With new attractions and restaurants opening in 2018, it's going to be an exciting year to #VisitHC.

There’s nothing worse than being hungry and searching for a restaurant as your kids begin melting down in “hanger.” Recently, my husband and I found ourselves on yet another Friday night, trying to decide where to head for dinner with our kids. Our criteria for a great restaurant is like most parents: yummy food for the whole family and kid-friendly options on the menu - bonus points for quick service or fun kid activities. Luckily for us, Hamilton County, Indiana is full of family-friendly dining options!

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.

I love a classic tenderloin sandwich as much as anyone. But sometimes, it’s nice to switch things up. Tons of Hamilton County restaurants are participating in Tenderloin Tuesdays, but just a few of them are plating up twists on the classic. Below are my picks for a few worth sampling.

A Tale of Two Tenderloins

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.

If you call yourself a Hoosier, you've likely had your fair share of tenderloins. Here in Hamilton County, Indiana we have a wide selection of restaurants that serve the uniquely Hoosier sandwich. There are 25 restaurants participating in this year's annual #TenderloinTuesday celebration with old classics and new favorites in the lineup. We’re taking a detailed look at Dooley O'Tooles and Caplinger's Fresh Catch.
