Chow down on the best foodie memories, and the places that provided them, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. With an abundance of appetizing eateries comes a wealth of memories. George Motz, author of Hamburger America, refers to Powers as “one of the greatest slider emporiums in America.” The Hobby House provided the first restaurant experience for Dave Thomas, known worldwide as founder and pitchman for the Wendy’s hamburger chain. Nine Mile Restaurant, which first opened as a tavern in 1837, competes for recognition as Indiana’s oldest bar. During a campaign stop one month before his assassination, Robert F. Kennedy boasted that Zoli’s on Broadway made “the best food I ever ate.” Authors Keith Elchert and Laura Weston celebrate the savory and the sweet sides of the Summit City.
