Family from out of state insists on Soup from Darn Good Soup! How can you not give them a 5 star rating. Would go higher if I could. It really is that good!

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat for lunch on a cold day. This is just what we needed. We had a smaller sized butternut squash soup and it was good. You get a small bread piece with it, and that would be better if it was warmed up. Soup was tasty with a bit of spice. No crackers... More

They offer 8 to 10 different soups daily in a casual setting. Also have some pre made salads. The soups were wonderful. Give it a try. On the town square.

The name is right; this place has darn good soup (although little on the menu besides soup). Five of us went here for a late lunch/early dinner and I left hugely impressed. I had the chicken tortilla soup (and also tried my wife’s chili). All of the soups are very thick and actually are a pretty hardy meal. I have... More

Near Indiana U's main entrance, its a hole in the wall, but delightful and worth a visit. We wanted something light and Darn Good Soup was perfect. Service is very friendly. You come up to the counter and choose from a half dozen variety of delectable soup -- minestrone, chili, tortilla, chicken, etc. A cup or bowl and a slice... More

First visit after hearing great reviews of it. I chose the Butternut Squash soup. It was a bit more spicy than I would like but it was still really good. I purchased a large bowl but could not eat it all. Popped on a lid and took it back to an apt. to the refrigerator. Re-heated the soup on Sunday... More

I walk down to the restaurant usually once a week with my coworker. There's always a good selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian selections. Several people in my office call the lentil spinach their favorite. I haven't made up my mind.
