Breaded tenderloin sandwiches are prevalent, but I grew up eating unbreaded, pan fried tenderloin. During my undergrad college years, I worked and ate at a campus hangout that served unbreaded butterflied tenderloins cooked on the grill. Yum! That's what you find at the Lemon Drop....More

This is an Anderson classic home to the number 1 tenderloin and hamburger. This is one of my children's favorite places to eat. If you are gonna be I n Anderson Indiana I recommend the Lemon Drop for sure.

We happened on this little cafe completely by accident on a trip through Anderson and were very pleasantly surprised. The burgers were out of this world and the atmosphere is a throwback to an earlier time. The fresh-squeezed lemonade, delicious food, and friendly staff make...More

The Lemon Drop is an ANDERSON Landmark! Their signature dish is their onion burger, a hamburger patty with onions inside. Their fries are hot and crisp. They also serve a highly rated tenderloin though I've seen larger around town. If you're a nostalgia buff this...More
