Stookey’s Family Dining, Thorntown, Indiana

After last week’s great outing to a local diner, the Broadway Diner in Fortville, Indiana, I was looking forward to another diner. This time we stopped at Stookey’s Family Dining in Thorntown, Indiana. The diner is located on main street in quaint downtown Thorntown.

… and the onion rings? Oh me. Really, really good. I mean… just… make-you-cry good. I’d go back and just get a full order (see how big the half order is???) and just sit back and enjoy. And check out the perfect onion ring stacking. That’s not amateur stuff there, no.

My only complaint was the men’s restroom. It really needed to be cleaned (I’m fairly sure the ceiling light hadn’t been cleaned in a long, long time). Anita said the ladies room was acceptable. Besides that, we really enjoyed everything and we’d return.

On the ‘Mater Rater I gave Stookey’s high marks except for the condition of the bathroom:
