Frost Bite (Avon, IN)
7025 Galen Dr W, Avon, IN 46123, T: 317-272-2483
Frost Bite is a classic American small town dairy/snack bar, which has been around for a long time, and is only open during the summer, when it is run by uninterested school kids with an attitude. While it mainly is visited for its cold treats, it also has burgers, hot dogs, and, of course, tenderloin sandwiches (this is Indiana after all!).
I got a Big Bite Burger ($4), which came with (too much) lettuce, (too much) mayo, ketchup, mustard, (too much) onion, a quarter pound pattie on a small bun. The excessive condiments were probably to cover the fairly tasteless pattie. The Chili Dog ($2.50) included a thick slaty wiener, generic chili, and a not-steamed bun. Finall, the small banana shake ($3) was (too) sweet and creamy with chunks of banana.
Classic small town, old-school place from the time before (some) Americans started to care about food.
