The American Creation is a slab of meat, Heinz 57, and a thick slice of gooey cheese. You can find this paradise worthy meal at Industrial Revolution Eatery and Grille in Valparaiso. Industrial Revolution is a place where customers enjoy a classic meal where the dreams of Americans – the invention of the airplane by Orville Wright, the revolution of food crops by George Washington Carver, or the building of a dream home in Margaritaville – are honored and used as ways to inspire others.
Industrial Revolution is the place to satisfy the desire of a burger and beer night or the place to take a risk and try the IR Challenge Burger, the five-pounder only some can call themselves champions for finishing. It is also the place to learn something about history, while enjoying a satisfying appetizer, a gourmet burger and potato wedges, revolutionary originals, and delicious desserts.
When reading the reviews from Facebook and Yelp, it was hard to decide what customers enjoyed more: the atmosphere, the wait staff and management, or the gourmet food.

Andy Y. of Goshen, Ind: “Awesome food and even better service! Finally made the one-hour and 20-minute drive with some of my closest friends, and I'll tell ya, every bit of it was fantastic. The building was cool and very educational for all ages, the employee staff was fantastic, (the restaurant was slammed packed and busy. They were fast as well as accurate, and friendly in their service.) And the burgers are top notch. I ate the risk taker, best burgers I've eaten in Indiana!”
Susan T. of Lansing, Ill: “Love the atmosphere, concept and décor. Food: the pretzel sticks were great, cobb salad was wonderful and really big, and the burger sampler was extremely good. We saw the manager and he was pitching in, serving, and cleaning up.”
Amy W. of Arlington Heights, Ill: “This place has character in spades, not just in the décor, but in the menu as well. A burger in honor of the inventor of arc welding that includes some ghost pepper so it's HOT? Right on, man!” Mark L. of Lafayette, Los Angeles: “Hmmm. I rarely give five stars to burger joints, but this one is so good I can't see only giving it four stars. The burgers: Excellent, flavorful, creative, delicious, and BIG are all accurate. You can't go wrong with any of the burgers so pick one with toppings you love and you’re sure to be pleased.”
Jerry L. of Valpo, Ind: “Staff here were attentive and nice, they made sure to also engage my kids by asking them questions and giving them compliments. Everyone seemed very nice and dedicated to their work. The decorations are a novelty, and the train that runs overhead is a pretty cool touch, that's sure to please the younger crowds. The tables had little cards on them with an interesting person/story that related back to American history, which was a nice touch, plus the kids learned something.”
Robbie H. of Portage, Ind: “Ok...this place is amazing! The ambiance is on point. The prices are good. I had the burger with pot roast! Wow it was soo good.”
Gena M. of St. John, Ind: “First time here and it was amazing! We had pot roast and chicken fried chicken. They were very good! We had the homemade bread pudding for dessert....to die for! Ronnie was our server and he was great! He went out of his way to be sure everything was perfect.”
Mary M. of La Porte, Ind: “This place is nothing short of Magical. We've driven passed it for two and a half years, finally stopped in and was amazed. The food is to die for, that brick oven pizza....yum! The deserts, insanely good, but the best part – even better than the food, the décor, or their Hero of the Week themed menu options – the staff! The staff was amazing, attentive, friendly. This place is a must go!”
Tim H. of Chesterton, Ind: “We have been to and plan to return to IR over and over. The food is great and the staff is amazing. Great for the whole family, and an awesome draft selection.”
So, “amend those carnivorous habits” and grab that “big warm bun and huge hunk of meat” at Industrial Revolution, located off U.S. 30.
