22 Favorite Midwest Downhome Restaurants
Reader Pick Auburn Town Tavern, Auburn Go for the fish basket, pork tenderloin, and "great waitress, Dottie" (260/925-0555).
Editor Pick Kabob Korner, Indianapolis Nasir Ayoubi got bored after closing his formal Afghan restaurant. So he opened this fast-service eatery in 2007 featuring carryout and seating for about 40 in a room painted purple and orange.
