Scouring Tri-State restaurants for favorite dishes proves daunting

It’s been 5 years since the launch of Evansville Living magazine and, in honor of that span, we’ve gathered 5 individual dishes that stand

out from among dozens of restaurants we have visited and hundreds of dishes we’ve tasted – and written about – since then.

This was not an easy task. Evansville Living has made a mission out of finding and featuring the area’s generally outstanding restaurants; there’s not been a bad meal in the lot…

…Also nearby in Newburgh is the historic Knob Hill Tavern. Among other things, they serve catfish fiddlers. The building even sports a neon sign of a fiddle-playing fish to advertise the fact.

Fiddlers are known as fried catfish all over the south. The peculiar name is strictly local and the Knob Hill was, in the early days of the 20th Century, one of several taverns within a 50-mile radius of Evansville

that were known for serving them.

The Knob Hill Tavern is at the crest of the hill just west of Newburgh at 1016 Highway 662.
