Small{ish} Town Eats | Tyler's Tender

Small Town Stats* | Schererville, IN
Population - 29,250 (as of 2011)
This past Sunday we stopped in at one of Doll Baby's favorite restaurants - Tyler's Tender in Schererville, IN.

Trains galore!

As soon as we walked in she ran over to the model train display.

Eventually we were able to pry her away and sit down for lunch at the counter, but only because a model flat bed train delivered the food.

After about five minutes of eating Doll Baby asked to get to down to play with the model train display again (huge shock, I know!) while the Hubs and Big Guy continued to eat their lunches.

 Like all of our visits before, it was a fun time. And everyone (especially Doll Baby) enjoyed the trains.

Be sure to stop in at Tyler's Tender when you're in the area and let me know what you think!

  1. Hi to a fairly new Hoosier (I see from your "about" page.) :-) Thanks for your comment on my Weekly Top Shot.

    These are very sweet pictures of your family enjoying Tyler's Tender.

    Since your family enjoys trains, I wanted to mention a couple of places to you. There is the Whistle Stop Cafe and Monon Connection Museum in Monon, Indiana (on Hwy. 421). Might be best to wait for a nice weather day so you can view the outside displays.

    The other is a yearly event in downtown Indianapolis. Beginning in early November and running through the start of the new year, the Eiteljorg Museum has a display called Jingle Rails. There is a parking garage directly underneath the Eiteljorg and the State Musuem (its neighbor) and the Eiteljorg validates parking. ;-)
    It is a lovely display and a fabulous museum.

    The Indianapolis Zoo is just west of the State Museum, on Washington Street. And one other place that might interest you would be the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

    Sorry to carry on. I do not work for any of these establishments but have visited and enjoyed them all.

    1. Wow! Thanks so much for the great travel tips. We will definitely have to check these out.

  2. This looks like a fun place for young ones, maybe even big kids!

  3. Awww! Looks like a fun place for children (and adults). She is so cute! Yes - at her age playing with trains is more important than eating.
    Thanks for stopping by and nice comment - will pass it along to daughter.
    Have a great week.

  4. That sounds like a place for a fun bite to eat! She's adorable... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #67!

  5. Looks like a fun place for the family.

  6. that is just the coolest thing ever! my son wants to go, like Right Now.
    Um, bit of a drive just for something to eat son. LOL

  7. I think it's fantastic that she marches to her own drummer and wants to play with "boy toys!"

  8. What a great way to entertain little ones at a restaurant! I love that a flat-bed train delivers the food; I've never seen that done before. Not that I get out to eat much, but speaking of....

    Huntsville has a new superhero themed restaurant called Supper Heroes, and everyone is raving about it! I can't wait to go check it out, because you never outgrow superheroes, right?

  9. What a cool place! Looks like she had a blast! She is adorable!

  10. Beautiful! Looks like a fun place!
