During the summer, a regular weekend event seems to be attending to a local fair or carnival. The rides, crafts, and other attractions are great, but what draws more people to these summertime festivities has always been the food. Whether it be corn dogs, fresh cut French fries, or a large pork tenderloin sandwich, fair food is always a delicious treat.
What happens, though, if you find yourself craving some classic fair food and it is not the weekend or the summer? You hop in your car and drive from Cincinnati to Indianapolis, Indiana, to stop by Heine's World Famous Roast Beef restaurant. That is what you do. Heine's is the year round home to some of the best fair food you will find at very reasonable prices.
Their signature item is, of course, their roast beef. Whether you try it as a sandwich, or in their beef Manhattan dinner, their roast beef is always tender and juicy. The also have delicious burgers and giant pork tenderloin. Sides like mashed potatoes with gravy, French fries, and hot slaw are all amazing as well. Of course, no trip to the fair is complete without a Lemon Shakeup. The same is true for a trip to Heine's. Their Lemon Shakeups are a nice treat on a hot summer day.
When you get a craving for some tasty fair food, and the next carnival is days or months away, hop in the car and head out to Heine's World Famous Roast Beef. It will be like a Saturday in July, no matter what time of year.
