Tri-State restaurants for favorite dishes proves
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...
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.
Hill Tavern is at the crest of the hill just west of
Newburgh at 1016 Highway 662.
