Bando Korean Restaurant

Bando Korean Restaurant is a once popular place that has definitely seen better days. While I enjoyed the flavors, the portions were skimpy and mostly filler. While Bando Korean Restaurant’s food warrants one piggy, I don’t recommend going here because of the ambiance and cleanliness of the joint. Read More at The Whole Hog

King Ribs: An Indianapolis Barbecue Joint

If you have a hankering for barbecue in Indianapolis, King Ribs is a pretty good choice to satiate that desire. For dessert, if you like the kind of sweet that will rot the teeth out of your mouth as you chew, go ahead and have a piece of Chess Pie. Otherwise opt for the fantastic Sweet Potato Pie.

Clay Oven Indian Restaurant

One of the great things about Indian food is that you can satisfy a wide variety of tastes and dietary requirements with one cuisine. There’s something for the carnivore, as long as the carnivore likes chicken, and there’s something for the vegan, vegetarian, and diet conscious. Indian is really one of the best choices to serve when feeding a diverse group of people.

In summary: It’s a great lunch for a great price; however, if you want the heat, order off the menu. 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.

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

Amazing Soul Food at Zacky’s Hot Dogs & BBQ
