This is another in a series of reviews on behalf of the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau, promoting Tenderloin Tuesdays, and our great dining choices in Hamilton County.
This Tuesday found me at Courtney’s Kitchen in Noblesville.
Courtney’s is a diner/restaurant located just west of the courthouse square in Noblesville. If you’ve not visited Noblesville’s town square, you should. It’s wonderfully quaint, and features one of Indiana’s lovely, old courthouses. Photography options abound on the town square!
But, back to Courtney’s. I was born and raised in a small town, so when I enter a restaurant and am met with that small town atmosphere, I’m pretty well hooked already. Courtney’s has that feel to it. There’s local art on the walls, some posters hanging around featuring upcoming events in the area, and some folks sitting, chatting, lingering over their meals. I’m pretty certain you’d never feel rushed at Courtney’s. It fairly screams “small town”, and that’s a VERY good thing.
I, of course, was there to sample their tenderloin. There are two options, hand breaded or grilled, and in a nice touch, they offer two sizes…a larger and a petite one. I chose the petite, and it was plenty for a hearty eater like me.
The tenderloin is obviously hand breaded, and the meat was fresh and moist. The breading was nice and crunchy, with just the barest hint of seasoning.
If you’re a fan of very thinly pounded tenderloins, you are going to love this one! It was tasty and crunchy, and, although my personal preference is for a thicker tenderloin, I’ll admit that I liked this one quite a lot, thin as it was.
The sandwich is served with chips, or for an upcharge you can add a number of different sides. I chose onion rings, and they were nothing short of fantastic. No matter what I might order at Courtney’s, I’m certain those onion rings will be my side of choice.
Holly my wife had one of the other Tuesday specials – all you can eat spaghetti. It came with a salad and garlic toast. There was plenty of pasta in the first serving for Holly to have enough to eat and leftovers. It had a standard, mild meat sauce. The salad was basic, and the Italian dressing was very good! The garlic toast was closer to Texas toast than garlic toast – not very garlicky.
All in all, it was a very positive experience. We’ll certainly be back! Courtney’s Kitchen is located at 654 Logan Street in Noblesville. You can find them online at http://www.courtneykitchen.com, and they also have a Facebook page. You might want to note that they are closed on Mondays.
