New York Pizza Garden | Fishers, IN

New York Pizza Garden_Cheese Pizza

New York Pizza Garden recently opened in a small strip mall just off of IN-37 and 126th Street in Fishers.  Oddly enough, it is in the same strip mall that houses Big Apple Bagels.  New York Pizza Garden has a small eat-in area, and they offer pizza-by-the-slice for those who want to grab a quick bite.  I would [...]

Coalition | Carmel, IN

Coalition_The Paragon Pizza

Coalition caters to those who want their own pizza and want it quick.  Menus are available at the entrance, and they have cashiers ready to take your order for your very own eleven inch pizza, sandwich, or pasta.  After a stop to fill up your cup with your favorite Puck’s soda flavor (they have beer and wine as well), you just need [...]

South of Chicago Pizza & Italian Beef | Fishers, IN

South of Chicago_Deep Dish Sausage Pizza

South of Chicago Pizza & Italian beef is rapidly trying to spread their Chicago-style pizza across the Indianapolis area.  They first opened in the Fletcher Place neighborhood of Indianapolis about three years ago, then they opened another location in Fishers’ Saxony at the beginning of 2014, and they now have plans to add a third restaurant in [...]

ZwanzigZ Pizza | Columbus, IN

ZwanzigZ Pizza_Five Meat Pizza Slice

ZwanzigZ Pizza is in a town more known for its Cummins engines and architecture than food, and I will say that even the building ZwanzigZ occupies is pretty cool-looking.  There is more to be impressed by than just their storefront though; ZwanzigZ brews their own beer and soda and are consistently rated as Columbus’ best pizza.  Their restaurant is very family-friendly, and [...]

V’s Pizza & Pasta | Noblesville, IN

V's Pizza & Pasta_Grandma Pizza

I had been hearing good things about V’s Pizza & Pasta since they opened in Noblesville in January of 2014, so I was excited to check them out for myself.  They were very friendly and informative when I called in my order, but my enthusiasm dwindled slightly when I pulled into their parking lot and saw [...]

Shoefly Public House | Indianapolis, IN

Shoefly Public House_Cuban Pretzel Flatbread

My Cuban Pretzel Flatbread at Shoefly Public House really pushed the boundaries of what can evenly remotely be considered pizza, but I found the restaurant and this dish worthy of a post nonetheless.  Shoefly is located at 22nd and Talbott Street in Indianapolis and was created to offer this area a place for a quick [...]

The Cheesecake Factory | Indianapolis, IN

The Cheesecake Factory_Pepperoni Pizza

The Cheesecake Factory in the Keystone Fashion Mall on Indy’s north side must be doing something right because they are always busy, and I give them credit for having quick service despite the crowds.   Part of their draw may be that they have something for everyone with one of the biggest menus I have ever seen.  [...]

Palomino Restaurant & Bar | Indianapolis, IN

Palomino Restaurant & Bar_Sopressata Pizza

Palomino Restaurant & Bar is a pretty classy place, yet it manages to not be stuffy.  They have locations in a few states, and I dined at their restaurant in downtown Indianapolis, right by Circle Center Mall.  I started with their Tomato-Basil Bruschetta and enjoyed it.  The Roma tomatoes and basil were good, and the herb oil [...]

Oobatz! Restaurant | Indianapolis, IN

Oobatz_Hoosier Daddy Pizza

Oobatz! Restaurant could best be described as a slightly upscale sports bar, and they have two locations in central Indiana – one in Zionsville and one at Keystone at the Crossing in Indianapolis.  There is a somewhat interesting color-changing mood lighting wall in their restaurant at Keystone at the Crossing that causes some odd changes in hue in my pictures [...]

Houlihan’s Restaurant and Bar | Indianapolis, IN

Houlihan's Restaurant and Bar_Margherita Flatbread

Houlihan’s Restaurant and Bar has many locations, including two in central Indiana.  I ate at the Houlihan’s in northeastern Indianapolis’ popular Castleton Square Mall (just to clarify, its attached to the outside of the mall but is essentially its own building and is not a part of the food court in the mall or anything [...]
