A one of a kind meal is only a (sticks and) stone’s throw away

BROWNSBURG —  

 Main Street in Speedway has been undergoing a major revitalization and Dawson’s on Main has become a fine dining staple in the community there. The owners of that business are hoping their latest project, Dawson’s Too! Sticks and Stones in Brownsburg, will find just as much success here. Especially since “here” is home to them.

Brothers Tony and Chris Hill, their partner Greg Rose, and all of their families are working hard to make Dawson’s Too “the” place to dine in Brownsburg.

Tony said partnering family values with his love for the business that he conceived while still in college, he aims for their restaurant to be “different.”

Dawson’s on Main in Speedway, the inaugural restaurant, met that challenge for the community there. He’s counting on Dawson’s Too in Brownsburg to do the same.

“There are six of us who own this place,” Hill says of Dawson’s Too. “You’ve got to count our wives ... because they allow us to come in and really do something we’re passionate about. You either love this business or you hate it, and we love it. It’s kind of funny, when we first opened the doors there were so many parts of the puzzle you have to have to make it work. All need to gel to be successful — from the busser, to the hostesses, to the sound in the restaurant.”

He said it’s the staff that makes their business different. With very low turnover, he believes simply being a good boss, allowing creativity, and letting employees have a personal hand in the success is a key.

Look no further than the kitchen. Or the menu. You’ll notice items that exist on no other menu in the world. That’s because they’re creations of the people making them.
