"Comfort food" abounds in Indiana—162 restaurants are included in this category, and 23 well-known steak houses are highlighted in "Where’s the Beef?" No fewer than 137 ethnic restaurants around the state are profiled here. Duffy looks to the future as well: he reviews 80 new restaurants that are "destined to stand the test of time." All of the restaurants popularized by Indiana Cooks! (IUP, 2005) have been included in this mouthwatering guidebook.

Double the size of the original guide, Reid Duffy’s Guide to Indiana’s Favorite Restaurants serves up 432 thorough and extensive reviews. Each establishment has been visited in person and the food taste-tested. The result is the best guide to great dining for Indiana residents as well as visitors to the Hoosier state.
