Aunt Judy’s Country Kitchen: Grandma’s Still Cooking in Franklin
Aunt Judy’s Country Kitchen, in Franklin, Indiana, is where the locals go when they start missing the real thing in the way of home cooking. Friendly and quaint, the restaurant is a genial nod to the past, when food was simple, homemade and affordable.
Franklin is one of the major satellite cities that orbit Indianapolis. With a population of about 22,000, Franklin is a nice-sized burg that enjoys the benefits of being close to a big metropolis. Residents can pop into Indy, about ten or fifteen minutes to the North, and sample the world-class, sophisticated Indianapolis restaurants all over that worthy city.
But it works in the other direction, too. Hoosiers based out of the inner metropolis of the Circle City will frequenty
make a trip to the suburbs on a mission quest to find a real country kitchen like Judy’s. Franklin is just off the I-65, that runs vertically through Indy. Other small satellite towns between Franklin and Indianapolis roughly along the same route are Bargersville, Whiteland, New Whiteland, Greenwood and Beech Grove.
Over the years, Judy’s has built up a considerable fan base. They say the fried chicken at Judy’s is the best around, and the pot roast just can’t be beat. People compare Aunt Judy’s Country Kitchen favorably with the big boys like Applebee’s and Chili’s, even though the menu and decor are more limited. They even aver fervently that Judy’s is better. A lot better.
Just goes to show you how much clout Grandma still wields around the kitchens of the Midwestern cities of Indiana.
