Foodie Fix

The outside of Cammack Station looks like it would have in the '30s.

Missing the good old days filled with milkshakes, jukeboxes and homemade burgers that are so greasy they make your stomach hurt? Even though we might not have actually lived through any of those days, Cammack Station gives off the atmosphere of stepping back through time.

Cammack Station is a hometown pit stop similar in style to Ivanhoe's. Once an order is placed, you can pick anywhere you want in the restaurant to sit while your food is being made. The walls are covered in antiques and memorabilia from when the shop was originally opened in the '30s. Do not forget to look up, because there's decorations posted on the ceilings, too!

There is an extensive menu of baskets, which involve both a large variety of burgers and other sandwiches. For every burger, you get the choice of having it be made on a regular bun or Texas Toast - do not think too much about the carbs, just go for what tastes best! Feeling nostalgic for a certain windy city? There is even a speciality hot dog section made in Chicago styles. Not sure what exactly to order because it all looks so good? The cashiers will happily offer their recommendations to what tastes best, and who better to trust than the experts crafting your meal.

Be sure to save room for dessert! This place has incredible sundaes and ice cream. There are even a few sodas you can try that are uniquely made for dessert - such as Marshmallow Coke! The options for curving a sweet tooth are endless.

Cammack Station is a hidden Gem in Muncie, Indiana.

Overall pros: Every meal is original and unlike anything your taste buds have ever had. It doesn't hurt your wallet, either - most baskets range in about the $7.40 price range. But be careful not to blow your bank account on the ice cream!

Overall cons: This place is out in the middle of nowhere. Located at 9200 W Jackson St., Muncie, Indiana, it is easy to get turned around when searching. The restaurant is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., so if you are making a dinner date, you had better make it an early one!
