Schnick’s Good Eats in Wheatfield

Located in the old Wheatfield downtown, you probably wouldn’t even know it was here! Lucky for you–you’ve got little Indiana.

Kidding aside, walking into this place we couldn’t believe how busy it was. Various sports memorabilia lined the walls and folks were taking up almost every seat. That’s always a good sign.

We actually had to wait a bit to be seated. It’s a small, cozy place so when a couple came in after us, we decided to leave the bustling dining room for a spot outside. Talk about a gorgeous Indiana day!

We had the pleasant outdoor seating area all to ourselves! Since it was fenced in, Kid #2 could roam without bothering anyone.

What are You Having

I’ve heard good things about the Beef Manhattan and the Meatloaf but we were in a more sandwich and lunch type mood. When everything sounds so good on the menu there’s only one thing to do…we asked our server for suggestions.

Her recommendation? The Italian Beef sandwich. She said that everything is good but that people love that one.

I claimed dibs while hubs finished making up his mind. He chose The Works Burger–Swiss cheese, mushrooms, and peppers. The kids got Chicken Fingers and a Corn Dog with a side of applesauce.

Do you see that thing of beauty over there? That Italian Beef sandwich tasted as good as it looks! The fries were simply awesome.

Hubs and the kids were equally enamored over their choices. Which means? That Schnick’s Good Eats, in a very small Indiana town, delivered as promised.

But we didn’t stop there! This is little Indiana–which means it isn’t over until dessert! I’ve heard about their Peach Cobbler but they were out! So…we made a swap.

Dessert at Schnick’s

First, I want you to imagine red, ripe strawberries. Got it? Now imagine them piled on top and around golden shortbread and doused it all in whipped cream. Strawberry Shortcake.

Hubs, who had earlier proclaimed he was not all that hungry for dessert proceeded to eat his share and then come after the remaining! So, yes. You could say it was the perfect ending to our lunch.

They really do mean “good eats.” The four of us had a nice leisurely lunch. We would certainly go back–I’d love to try their Pork Tenderloin Sandwich!
