Pearlie Mays Restaurant in Francesville, Indiana is very homey and bright.

Baskets of homegrown sweet yellow tomatoes sat on every table in this Pulaski County restaurant, just begging to be eaten.

While snacking on those yummy fresh from the garden tomatoes, we browsed the menu.

As always, we asked the super important question, “What’s good?” We found out that Pearlie’s Restaurant is named for the owner’s wife, isn’t that cute? We also discovered that at Pearlie’s, they do their own roast beef and turkey.

As if that wasn’t enough, our waitress slipped in that the Beef Patty Melt is really popular.

I think that’s pretty neat for a small town restaurant and something we’ve come across less than a handful of times in our travels so far. It’s always nice to see such an emphasis on homemade!

Well, hubs decided to go with that recommendation and ordered the Roast Beef sandwich with a side of onion rings. I got the Beef Patty and fries (I know, I know, no Reuben Sandwiches this time), and Kid #1 wanted a corn dog and fries. He’s all adventurous like that.

Back to the food: my Beef Patty was great! Hubs liked his Roast Beef sandwich and Kid #1 sang a little song about his corn dog so, yes, even he was pleased. In fact, Kid #1 went on to say that it was the best corn dog ever.

I say go for the onion rings as your side. They are pretty good! Actually, everything was really good! Speaking of which…I could go for Pearlie’s Patty Melt right about now!
