Teddy’s Burger Joint, Indianapolis (Southport)
When reviewing restaurants, you step up to the plate and take your swing. Sometimes you strike out, sometimes you hit a single, sometimes it gets knocked out of the park. Yesterday was one of those days when everything was just right and the ball goes sailing out of the park.
We had some business on the south side of Indy, and I knew I wanted a tenderloin. I just didn’t know where to get one. So we headed down and figured we’d find something interesting.
We saw Teddy’s Burger Joint and figured we’d give it a shot. I honestly didn’t know if they had a breaded tenderloin, but it was past lunchtime and we took our chances.
Teddy’s, from the moment you step through the door, is, quite simply, a FUN place. The decor is nice and busy without being overwhelming, and the staff is gracious, patient, and helpful.
I asked our server at the counter if they had a REAL breaded tenderloin, and she said “You’ll hear it being pounded after you order it”. That was good enough for me.
In short…a piece of breaded heaven. The meat itself was nice, tender, moist, and flavorful. This was perhaps the most tender tenderloin I’ve ever had…it was really a cut above the rest. I just can’t say enough about how tasty and tender the meat was.
And the breading was just as good. Nice and crispy, so that little crumbs fell off when I took a bite, but it still stuck to the meat. Good taste and good texture, the perfect compliment to the meat.
Add to that a nicely, butter toasted bun, and it being dressed exactly as I ordered, with plenty of onion, Teddy’s breaded tenderloin goes into the hall of fame…a 5 out of 5 bites.
Teddy’s breaded tenderloin sells for $8.95 and that includes a very healthy serving of tasty fries.
Holly chose a spinach salad for her lunch, which included spinach, strawberries, almonds, onions…and she proclaimed it quite tasty indeed. Teddy’s is one of those places we’ll make a point to visit again. I’d really like to try one of their burgers…but I’ll probably stick with the tenderloin.
Teddy’s is located at 2222 W Southport Road in Indianapolis, and is an all ages, non smoking venue. They have a spacious kids playroom, feature live acoustic music on the weekends, and alcohol is available for purchase. You can visit their website at: http://www.teddysburgerjoint.com/.
