John's Famous Stew Editor's Pick

Hours: Monday-Friday 7am to 8pm Saturday 11am to 4pm Sunday closed

John’s Famous Stew is one of those places that’s been around forever, but they never advertise because the place is always full of regulars. The recipe for the stews of note is passed down, like so many good things in Indiana, from a Macedonian grandmother, and also bears the Hoosier signature of fanfare-free eating, with names like “Mild Stew,” “Medium Stew” and the favorite, the “Hot Stew” which is described as simply “very highly spiced.” The restaurant also serves some true Hoosier cooking, like tenderloins and fresh pie and anything else that would look at home on a farmhouse table.
