It’s deep winter in Michiana. The sky is cloudy, your fingers are numb, and the latest glacial air mass has transformed our campus into a winter wonder-if-I’ll-live-to-see-grass-again-land. Rumor even has it that woolly mammoths migrating from Canada have been spotted outside the city!
At times like these, only one thing can warm your frosty innards: food, delicious and piping hot. We’ve already given you some good suggestions on where to find it in previous posts (see especially this one on cheap restaurants) so today’s will focus on eight Mishawaka restaurants not previously featured on Ask the Salmon or on the Grad Life website.
So lash your sled dogs together and zip on your snow pants. It’s time to dine!
Diner on 12th
1212 E. 12th St.
This little diner has sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, and baskets on the menu, all of them as cheap as they come. They are particularly known for serving a life-changing ham sandwich.
904 Division St.
Reasonably-price, family-owned, authentic Italian diner. What more do you need to know? Not to be confused with Sam & Mary Rulli’s Pizza in Elkhart.
114 Lincolnway East
A modern gastro-pub serving hand-crafted burgers, sandwiches, salads, and sides, all made with fresh ingredients. The best news? It doesn’t come at a premium in price.
Taste of Asia
5327 N. Main St.
Chinese and Thai food for dining in and taking out. No frills, low prices–but delicious.
Oliva’s Bar & Restaurant
327 Union St.
Family-run Italian-American diner open for lunch and dinner. Check out their daily specials!
Macadoo’s Family Restaurant
2108 Lincolnway East
An unpretentious American diner known for its breakfast and brunch, especially for biscuits and gravy.
303 E. 4th St.
Another hole-in-the-wall American breakfast diner serving up large portions at low prices.
223 N. Main St.
Rock-bottom prices for a delicious, American-style lunch and dinner–sandwiches, burgers, pizza, pasta, and more. “Get Toasted at Scoobz!”
