Ann’s Restaurant 77 W. Monroe Street Franklin Indiana

We have been to Franklin before. It is a small college town south of Indy with nice houses and friendly people. Pat suggested this place and we thought we should get there while the weather was still good. They serve breakfast all day and that is appealing to us both.

This day the lunch specials caught our eye. Fried chicken or beef and noodles. Both $8.99 and both came with 2 sides and bread choice.

This is the sort of joint I like to find. A restaurant that does more cooking than assembling. I decided on the beef and noodles with mashes and gravy, beans and a biscuit as well. I know it is carb heavy but they are so good.

The mashed potatoes were very good and the amont of gravy was just right. Some joints drown the taters with gravy. So much you aren’t sure what you are eating . As for the green beans they were soft and had real bacon in them. As you would expect in Middle America.

Like last week my lunch is far from being photogenic. No matter it was good and filling. The beef was shredded and the gravy had a good flavor. The noodles had a good tooth to them and were reminiscent of home made but I don’t think these were. Still they made for an excellent lunch.

So if you ever get down here check out Ann’s. Or if you are bored of places around you and want a drive you know where to come
