Yep, We're Foodies at Heart and Hancock County and Surrounding has Treasures Around Every CornerWe adore unique, local and fresh, and we are oh so lucky that Fortville and surrounding has some delicious local eateries that highlight just that and more. Here are our top 5 that are must visits for 2015!
Betty's Diner in Ingalls is just down the road from Fortville on SR67. Newer but reviews rave about the scrumptious homemade dishes. From breakfast to salads to cheeseburgers to their daily specials...guests say that their is never a bad meal to be had. All at amazing prices and the best service around. Sounds like Guy from Food Network should get this local diner on his list too.
The Mug in Greenfield is a favorite of so many. Jen and the Coach Man love visiting with the Fortville Mama kiddos. It's farm to table in live action, well maybe more of farm to curb, but you get the idea. Long ago The Frosty Mug, but revamped last year by the amazing folks of Tyner Pond Farm and coined The Mug. The fries are so good. The pork fries are even better! Check out our blog post from last year with more details on all the must tries from this Hancock County gem.
Yep, we Love the Rub! R-SmokeHouse on Main Street Fortville has the most delectable pulled pork nachos! Crunchy chips, smokey meat, yummy cheese, BBQ sauce with a little heat and a drizzle of sour cream. Finger licking good peeps! Fortville Mama Ashley and crew have been having a love affair with this local eatery since it opened. It won't be long before the youngest of their crew will be noshing on pulled pork sandwiches too, but for now he gets snuggles from owner, Angela.
Indulge Cafe, whether for lunch, dinner or a sweet treat, you can't beat this little candy-coated cafe nestled on Main Street Fortville. The owners are some of the best people around. Nothing like a hot Panini sandwich, marshmallow coke and a chat at the counter about what's new. It's been written about by little Indiana, Indy with Kids and Fortville resident Kara Fleck of Simple Kids. And let me tell you each of them hit the nail on the head. This Hancock County gem is a must visit.
Hey Cafe in Greenfield, Indiana is one of the warmest most inviting little spots we've ever stepped inside. We happened upon this gem one Saturday while at the Downtown Greenfield Farmers Market and needing a potty for a certain little sugarpie. They had just recently opened. The owner and staff were the sweetest. Before heading back over to the market, we picked up their mini breakfast frittata and an icy coke. Oh my gosh, pure deliciousness! Well they now have their liquor license as well and feature not only local fresh but local brews and from time to time local music! Sounds like a perfect date night to these mamas!
Happy eating in 2015 peeps! We hope you give them all a try and report back on your favorites!
