Stone’s Family Restaurant is a favorite of many in Decatur County and surrounding areas. Located in Millhousen, this traditional fried chicken joint has been serving families and visitors since 1934. At first, they began by pan-frying the chicken, but now they deep fry it to keep up with the high demand. They have lots of sides options, as well as a fully stocked buffet, and don’t forget to get a piece of homemade pie after!

Fry’s A&W


This old school drive-in restaurant has been serving up everyone’s favorite chicken since the 70s. You’ve most likely heard of this popular American fast food restaurant chain, but the location in Greensburg offers a little more… classic southeast Indiana fried chicken! 

A&W’s fried chicken is seasoned with lots of pepper, which is comforting and delicious. Driving into A&W feels like a trip back in time, where you pull in, roll down your window, and the server takes your order and brings the food right to your car. Their iconic Root Beer is made fresh in-house, and served in a frosty mug to complete your dining experience!

Storie’s Restaurant


Storie’s is a well-known Greensburg destination, so it’s only fitting that it offers fried chicken on the menu. On Thursdays, you can order fried chicken, an Indiana delicacy, right on the downtown square. Storie’s is famous for its homemade pies that pair perfectly with their crispy chicken that is cooked just right.
