    Recommended restaurants around Beemerville

    Thought it would be a good time to start a thread on good places to eat!
    These are two of my favorites about an hours ride from Beemerville:

    Flannigans Irish Pub in Ft. Wayne IN. On the west side of town, take route 24 aka. Jefferson Boulevard to Getz Rd. North on Getz about 200 feet to Covington Rd. West on Covington about 1/4 mile. Flannigans is on your left.

    The Rittenhouse in Bluffton IN. Straight west of Lima on hwy. 81 onto IN. 124. Take a left at the stop light in Bluffton onto Main St. The Rittenhouse is two blocks south of the court house your right.

    OK Buckeyes' where do you recommend?

    Bistro on Main

    Located right downtown Lima --- about 5 minutes from the rally site. An upscale restaurant with an antique bar. Small "pub" feel to it with an awesome selection of entrees. And a wine selection that'll knock your socks off.

    I love this place!

    They'll have that there, but two of my recommends are
    The Bistro on Main (2nd block south of the Square); higher end fare

    Burgundys, on Cable Road, very consistent, good quality and price, good atmosphere for fun at the bar.

    Head north on 75 to Findlay for Japan West if you like good sushi, etc.

    West North Street in Lima has Mark Pi's dine-in (not like the drive-thrus) for good Chinese.

    The Kewpee is an absolute must for a hamburger. Go to the original one downtown across from the municipal parking garage, on Elizabeth St.

    The Meeting Place on Market St. has good coffees and lunches.

    Best Pizza; Fat Jacks, 3 locations.

    Looking for a hole in the wall or something off the wall, let me know!

    Also, the Thai Restaraunts on Pine St. and on South Main are good.

    Just for the record, out the front of the site and left two minutes are all the usual suspects, as well; TacoMcDonaldBurgerPizzaChiliChinese places, as well as Bob Evans, Cracker Barrel, Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, etc.
    Try Joeys Subs on the square for a Lima icon, as well.
    Out on the west side of town (mall area) are a whole additional slew of places, from buffets to chains to..............
    Try Milanos across from the mall, a family run place since the 40's (not in the same location!)
    The Beef and Bourbon 4 minutes off I-75 on Breese Road in Shawnee (a suburb) has good steaks and a big rockin' bar/dance floor.

    Just scout the area about 1/2 mile west, next to I-75. Should be plenty of stuff there.

    Sue Has it Right - Bistro On Main

    If you want a special meal it is the Bistro on Main. It is not hard to find if you know where to look. Find Main Steeet and it is just south of the Convention Center. If you enjoy a glass of wine from someone who knows what they are offering you- it is the Bistro.

    As others have indicated Burgandy's is one of the fun places most passer bys will never find. It has grreat food and priced right. When you go in ask for Phil, the owner, and tell him you are with the BMW rally and you will get special treatment.

    If you need further direction come by the Hospitality Booth and see me or Howard and we will point you in the RIGHT DIRECTION.

    Come on Home to Beemerville, USA

    I'm with the Bullitt Man. I don't drink and ride. I'd enjoy some ribs and a microbrew or two within walking distance? I think if some enterprising locals set up a barbeque pit with ribs and corn on the cob that they would clean up financially at the Rally. Any hope for me? Thanks

    This happened at Trenton in 2000. A local company had some of the best Q I've had in a long while and plenty of it for a decent price (back when the exchange was favorable...). These people made a killing.
