Nostalgic Kokomo

These local businesses have endured the test of time. Check out these local hot spots, many in business now for over 50 years and still serving up great food in their family traditions!

Dan's Variety Bakery

A local favorite for over 40 years baking up delicious donuts.  Plan ahead!  They are only open from 1:00 a.m. – Noon.

Martino’s Italian Villa

In Kokomo since 1962, experience authentic old world Italian cuisine made by family owned traditions and recipes.  Try their pizza, pasta, and famous Italian roast beef.

Moore’s Pie Shop

This local pie shop has been serving up delicious pies for years from their unassuming location on West Elm Street, just north of Downtown.

Artie’s Tenderloin

One of Kokomo’s oldest restaurants, Artie’s has been a staple on South Main Street for over 70 years.  Take a seat in a booth or at the counter to enjoy a daily special or of course, their specialty – tenderloins!

Louie’s Coney Island

If you want to experience the local cuisine, you have to try the “bakes” from Louie’s Coney Island – a baked hamburger served in a hot dog bun with mustard, Coney sauce, diced onions and spices is the big draw.  This family business has been in Kokomo (at various locations) since 1937.

Ray's Drive-In

As their sign says “It Pays To Eat At Ray’s.”  Bring your appetite and order the King Tenderloin at the “Home of Indiana’s Largest Tenderloin.” Choose from inside dining or 50’s style curb-side service.

Kokomo Opalescent Glass

Kokomo Opalescent Glass has been making art glass in its original location since 1888 – using many of the same techniques as it did in the very beginning.  Take the factory tour and explore Kokomo’s oldest gas boom business.

Cone Palace

Treating Kokomo since 1966, Cone Palace serves hamburgers, corn dogs, nachos, and specialty soft serve and frozen yogurt.  Ask about the flavor of the day!
