The Extol Team headed to Sellersburg and found two SoIN establishments we love
JUST OFF OLD STATE ROAD 60 IN SELLERSBURG, YOU’LL FIND TWO OF OUR FAVORITE LOCALES: PREFERRED MEATS AND CRICKET’S CAFE.
NESTLED NEAR ONE ANOTHER, THEY BOTH HAVE UNIQUE OFFERINGS. HERE’S WHY WE DIG THEM AND THINK YOU SHOULD, TOO.

What we love: Owner Samantha “Sam” Huber and her staff hand-select, hand-cut and freshly-grind meats on the daily. You won’t find that at any big-box stores.
What you will love: Unsure of what you want to order? Sam and her staff are knowledgeable and eager to assist.
Don’t miss this: With a name like Preferred Meats, we don’t blame you for thinking this is a shop just for carnivores. But you’d be wrong. The store carries fresh produce, sides, seafood, beverages and just about anything you need, including all your grilling must-haves.
Oh, and you’ll love this, too: Holidays mean specials like bunny-shaped butter (Easter), baked hams and turkeys, corned beef, heart-shaped meats and more. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for seasonal offerings.

Open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday,

What we love: Owner Cheryl Koetter and her team are up ’n‘ at ‘em early six days a week and offer fresh food served fast and with a smile. Want to hold a meeting with your colleagues? You’re more than welcome. Have a birthday or anniversary you want to celebrate? This is the place.
What you will love: The menu caters to everyone, and the staff aims to please. Plus, you can order breakfast all day.
Don’t miss this: Try the special of the day and the desserts. Trust us. And don’t forget to take time to read the dozens of signs throughout the restaurant, including in the loo. You just might find the inspiration or laugh you didn’t know you needed.
Oh, and you’ll love this, too: Cricket’s isn’t just a restaurant. You can order catering or enjoy the drive-thru.
