The Bon Ton doesn’t serve burgoo. They serve chili and vegetable soup. Once a week they’ll serve something unusual like spaghetti or meat loaf or (a few times a year) a great chicken and dumplings recipe. Actually, their biggest seller is their hamburgers. A double hamburger has a lot of flavor.
They were serving brains for a while. Maybe they still are. That’s something I don’t even want to think about. (That’s a favorite dish on the west side of Evansville, IN, across the river.)
As to the distance, you’re right, Brad. A 2 and 1/2- to 3-hour trip is about how long it takes to get from Bloomington, IN to Henderson, KY.
If any roadfooders are ever planning a visit, let me know and I’ll show you around.
