Located at 21 E Main St, Washington, IN, the New White Steamer is a great little hamburger spot serving up a full menu of great food.
According to their Facebook page, “We are a local hamburger restaurant; we have been here and in business since 1937. Nice, cozy little place to enjoy family and friends!” We agree completely.
You really should go to the White Steamer when in Washington, Indiana. The food is amazing. The service is good as is the atmosphere.
The old-fashioned hamburgers are also still available to buy by the bag full. That’s nostalgia for sure. It’s also a great bargain.
They offer a full menu including breakfast, lunch and dinner options.
The Tenderloin Plate is a Hoosier favorite. You should try it when you stop at the New White Steamer.
According to Wikipedia, the pork tenderloin sandwich, also known as breaded pork tenderloin sandwich aka BPT, contains a breaded and fried cutlet similar to the Wiener Schnitzel and is popular in the Midwest region of the United States, especially in the states of Indiana, Missouri and Iowa. The sandwich is claimed to have originated at Nick’s Kitchen restaurant in Huntington, Indiana (near Fort Wayne).
Hoosiers really do love their tenderloins. Almost every town has a their “favorite” place to get one.
As far as the breakfast menu goes, I haven’t been let down yet on any of my meals there. I will say don’t miss out on the homemade biscuits and gravy, and the bacon.
Happy travels, and happy eats!
