New choices await diners in Fillmore

Saturday, July 12, 2008

An addition to Main Street Fillmore, Cardinal Carry Out, introduces a restaurant and convenience store to the area.

The new restaurant had its grand opening on July 10, with a ribbon cutting ceremony from the Chamber of Commerce. The store will be half restaurant, with 90 percent Angus beef hamburgers and catfish sandwiches, and half convenience store, with frozen food and other gas station-type items.

Owner LT Taylor said he was inspired to open the restaurant and convenience store by his business partner Daniel Dunahoo.

"I have a business partner that lives in Fillmore," Taylor said. "He told me that he was tired of driving to Coatesville or Greencastle just to get a frozen pizza or some cigarettes."

Taylor was inspired by the food at the Lion's Club when coming up with the restaurant's menu of jumbo tenderloins and homemade Coney sauce.

"I am also in charge of the food at the Lion's Club," Taylor said. "Everyone seemed to like the food at the fair, so I decided to use some of it for the restaurant."

The restaurant will feature other menu items such as garlic cheeseburgers and other specialty hamburgers. In August, Cardinal Carry Out is planning to add brick oven pizza to the menu.

Cardinal Carry Out also has seating available for dining in and a delivery service for the Fillmore area. Delivery will only be available on Fridays and Saturdays and will serve the entire Fillmore area, even out in the country, according to Taylor.

Taylor also said the restaurant is looking to expand delivery to the Heritage Lake area, but on test runs, it took as long as 45 minutes to get there.

"We might be able to meet people halfway from Heritage Lake," Taylor said.

The restaurant has also delivered to Dixie Chopper for lunch, and will most likely be expanding to accommodate serving lunch for other local factories. Delivery orders can be placed at 765-246-6543.

Taylor said while the convenience store element is something the Fillmore community needed, his main focus is on the restaurant.

"We are really focusing on serving good quality food." Taylor said. "That's what we want our restaurant to be known for."

I would like to know where it is? I've seen someone working on the old Hooiser Market building? The article does not say.
