Anyone can have a good year. But to stand out among the great restaurants in Valparaiso requires extraordinary food, drinks, entertainment, and service.

Radius employees are proud to be part of the restaurant team that was named "Northwest Indiana's Restaurant of the Year" for 2 consecutive years.

The Burgers That Made Radius Valparaiso's Favorite Restaurant

While Radius has been honored as Northwest Indiana’s best restaurant, it is the All-American Burger that makes Radius stand out in a sea of great restaurants in Valparaiso. Some of the more popular hamburgers include the Prime Burger, the Radius Burger, the Redenbacher, the Big Brisket Burger, and the burger that captured the imagination of Chicago’s top critics: the Elvis Peanut Butter Pretzel Burger.
