Standard Pub Fare at B&C’s Hideout Restaurant

The restaurant is very clean and the service is great, but the food and flavors are predictable, the tenderloin being a very pleasant exception. In summary: Order the tenderloin. 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.

Tasty Cajun at Papa Roux

All-in-all Papa Roux is a neat little Cajun dive. The food, with a couple of exceptions, is toned down for the Hoosier palate but with that divine homemade hot sauce, pepper bellies like me can get all the flavor and spice we want! 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

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
