Two Surprise Reasons To Check Out Two Warsaw Restaurants

When it comes to my regular restaurant rotation for nights out in Warsaw with the wife and/or friends, Oak and Alley, Rua and One Ten typically occupy the limited spots in that lineup. In an effort to get out of that comfort zone, I recently visited two restaurants not in that lineup – Mad Anthony’s Lake City Tap House in downtown and Redwood Firewood Grill, located on North Detroit St. on Center Lake.

And the Best Tacos in Kosciusko County Belong to ….

In case you haven’t heard, there was a taco contest going on this summer in Kosciusko County to find the best taco within our county’s boundaries. No, it’s not the one currently being hosted by the county’s visitor’s bureau. It was held by a baker’s dozen of taco-loving, salsa-dipping, refried-beans-scooping peeps just like me and you. The self-proclaimed “taco judges” traipsed all over the county, winding their way around unending lakes, dashing deer and spilled margaritas in search of the best taco served in a food truck, restaurant, grocery store or other eating establishment.

Modest but Tasty Menu Makes Pierceton’s Old Train Depot the Little Restaurant That Could

Even though it’s only about 15 minutes east of Warsaw, finding someone in my hometown who has recently been to the Old Train Depot restaurant in Pierceton is nearly impossible.

It sits less than a quarter mile south of U.S. 30, the main thoroughfare for Warsaw denizens heading to and fro from Fort Wayne for their latest shopping excursion, the thought of stopping at this unique eatery never crosses their minds. While the lakers who call the Lake Tippecanoe and Wawasee areas home during the summer have made it a regular stop on their culinary tour, which results in a bustling business in the warmer months, the coziness of the unique atmosphere should cause the population of Kosciusko County to take notice and result in this attraction gaining the recognition it rightfully deserves.

The tastiest carnitas around might just be found at Mi Cholulita in Warsaw

Walking into Mi Cholulita, a Mexican restaurant located on Warsaw’s north side in the Walmart plaza, was like most every other Mexican restaurant I’ve eaten in, with an ambiance and atmosphere that attempted to transport you to somewhere south of the border.
