It's hard to believe that the Mayor of Flavortown, Guy Fieri has not featured one of America's best diners that is located in Indiana. In fact, Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives has only been to 9 locations in Indiana. Perhaps someone needs to get Guy on the phone about this one.

Welcome to Plainfield, Indiana

Honestly, when I think of Plainfield, Indiana, I immediately think of the prison, and to not pick up hitchhikers off of the highway in that area. Seriously, it's on a road sign. I also think about the week that I spent there at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy to get my 911 dispatcher training. We weren't offered the luxury of eating lunch off campus, so I don't even remember seeing Oasis Diner. That is quite unfortunate since it happens to be one of America's Best Diners.

Indiana's Best Diner Stands Out in the Crowd

Just because a diner or restaurant is named 'The Best' doesn't mean that there isn't competition. Right next to Oasis Diner there is a Dairy Queen, and right across the street is the popular breakfast spot, Flapjacks.

What Sets Oasis Diner Apart?

According to LoveFood.com Oasis Diner is the Best Diner in Indiana. Here's what they had to say about the iconic restaurant:

Oasis Diner makes its own sodas – and they’re delicious. It’s just one of the things that sets this cute and colorful spot apart from the competition. Another is its obsession with lunch. Not just serving it, but honoring a part of its history, with a display of vintage tin lunch boxes filling the shelves (and bearing illustrations of everything from ET to Pac-Man). Throw in some wonderfully comforting and classic diner food and a TV playing old sitcoms, and it’s pretty much guaranteed to brighten your day.

New Location, Same Delicious Diner

It didn't always look so cute. Oasis Diner went through major renovations and even changed addresses to stay up to code. The new owners brought the original design from the 1950s back.
