Little Mexico

Reviewed By junker7 - Monticello, Illinois

We heard it was a good place to eat when we asked where to go when we were in Crawfordsville. We had a late lunch, getting there close to 2 but that was fine with them. We each had a different plate, a combo for one and the seafood one for me. Both very good. Worth the extra calories. Service was excellent, very attentive.

Dari-licious

Reviewed By Joan W - Indianapolis, Indiana

Stopped in Saturday and ordered two milkshakes, a cone, and a medium turtle sundae. All was very good but thought it was overpriced. Also, the sundae was only one squirt of ice cream. Sure didn't seem like a medium to me! Seemed like a hopping place in this town though!

While the choices for a great cup of coffee are limited in Crawfordsville, the Joshua Cup never disappoints. Coffee is outstanding and the biscotti delicious. The ambience is great and has a nice upstairs sitting area if you want to get away from the crowd. Enjoy!

Creekside Lodge

Reviewed By Barbara H - Covington, United States

Nice outdoor casual dining. Food is good - i had breaded tenderloin, hubby had Reuben. Service good as well, attentive but not hovering. We enjoy eating here when in area - especially in good weather - sitting on covered deck watching/hearing creek.

Arni's

Reviewed By David C - Kirklin

This Arni's is different than any other one we have been to. This one requires you to order your food at the counter, they give you a number and your empty cups for you to fill at the soda machine/ice tea containers. Pick your own seat, and they bring you your food. They only provided styrofoam plates. Side salads were served in regular bowls with metal forks. Pizzas were served on cardboard only, not the standard sturdy aluminum platters they provide at other Arni's locations.
Seems more like a fast food joint than a regular Arni's sit down restaurant with waitresses/waiters. Not impressed.

The Barefoot Burger

Reviewed By LLLLL414 - Crawfordsville, Indiana

The restaurant has a wonderful history, has been several eateries, but was originally built as the town laundry. You can still see the pulleys and wheels on the walls and ceiing. The bottomless homemade fries are much better than the usual pre frozen. The burgers are good, with variety and other sandwiches also, but I enjoy the soups the best. They have quite a variety of interesting soups, and do offer samples of each.
I think the service is the friendliest in the bar.
Oh, and they have only one men's room but two women's rooms. Less waiting. Much better.

Culver's of Crawfordsville

Reviewed By LLLLL414 - Crawfordsville, Indiana

Lots more choices than fast food. You can always depend on things like the pot roast sandwiches and the cheese curds. Price reasonable. Good service. Good food. Good root beer and better diet root beer.

Valentino Italian Cuisine

Small family business that lets you taste authentic home cooked Italian food.

Reviewed By RICART75 - Peru, Indiana

This was our 2nd visit, and once again we were very pleased.
The facility is small (reservations are a smart idea), casual and well maintained.
Our servers were friendly and attentive.
Water is not complimentary; and if desired, must be selected from a small refrigerator upon entering the dining area. Wine is BYOB.
The food is a delight.
The complimentary pasta fagioli was very tasty; and the accompanying foccacia bread was plentiful and truly wonderful.
The spaghetti & meatballs, and the 4 cheese fettuccine were both exceptional.
The tiramisu was a nicely indulgent ending to a great dining experience.
(We also took out a canoli and a torta di choccolato for later that evening, and the next day. Both were excellent.)
This is a great option for a fine Italian meal.

Allen's Country Kitchen

Reviewed By vservies - Crawfordsville, Indiana

Allen's is a friendly place with tasty comfort food. Lunch specials are popular, but my favorite is the grilled cheese on rye. Yellow and white Cheese, American I think, bread is toasted, cheese is runny, comfort on two slices of bread. Cookies at the counter or a muffin to round out the meal. Good for breakfast too. Scrambled eggs, bacon, toast great way to begin your day.

Brothers Pizza Co

Reviewed By RICART75 - Peru, Indiana

While staying at the Hampton Inn, we decided to get stay in and get some delivery pizza. Fortunately, the hotel had a Brothers menu; so we ordered from them.
We ordered 2 chef salads, and a Meatza pizza with extra cheese.
The order arrived promptly, and the food was very good. The salads were fresh and amply portioned. The pizza was very tasty; with a nice chewy crust and plenty of flavorful meat toppings (the extra cheese made it wonderfully indulgent).
This is a strong option for a very good pizza, at a reasonable price.
