Amazing Soul Food at Zacky’s Hot Dogs & BBQ

To think that Zacky’s Hot Dogs & BBQ is merely a hot dog and fry joint would be a serious mistake. Under all the Vienna hot dog signs and the different styles of dogs available on the menu beats the heart of a serious BBQ and Soul Food restaurant. Read More at The Whole Hog

Outstanding Mediterranean Food at Istanbul Cafe

At the Istanbul Café, you cannot go wrong. The food is as fresh as possible, the flavors are spot on. This is the type of place you might take a date you want to impress; you’re significant other for a romantic dinner or anniversary, or just to have a special night out. But don’t let that keep you from going there any time you feel like having a great Turkish meal. And you can have a gourmet meal that won’t break the bank! In summary: The authentic food and flavors of the Istanbul Café took me back to my youthful years in Europe. That combined with the friendly service, cleanliness, and uplifting atmosphere earns the Istanbul Café my highest rating. The food literally gave me goose bumps! Read More at The Whole Hog

Taste of Europe: An Eastern European Deli

Taste of Europe is a little Eastern European Deli in an industrial area on the northwest side of Indianapolis that serves hot food in a small dining room off to the side of the store. It is a great place to go if you want a good lunch or dinner with no frills. The food is fresh, satisfying and above all delicious. Just don’t go there expecting to eat and leave because it’s guaranteed you’ll find something else in the store to add to your bill! Read More at The Whole Hog

Overpriced Gourmet at The Local

Overall I was disappointed with my lunch at The Local. The only reason I’m giving the place a positive rating on the food is because of my previous experiences there. I am willing to go back; however, and give them another chance at a better rating because I know they have and can do better. Unfortunately, I am unable to recommend any one dish because the menu is always changing. Consider that a good thing. Read More at The Whole Hog

Fat Dan’s Chicago Style Deli

Fat Dan’s Chicago Style Deli is burger and dog joint that just happens to sell pretty good barbecue as well. The restaurant is ideally located as a meeting place to stop in at with friends for good beer and a meal before heading into Broad Ripple. In summary; the service is good, the food is fresh, it tastes great, and there is plenty of it. I’d be happy to go back any time. Read More at The Whole Hog
