Traditional cafeteria restau

We visited here over the weekend while in Indianapolis for the brickyard. A friend we were visiting with suggested this. Our food was quite good - nothing fancy but what one would expect at a cafeteria. The owner has a lot of race memorabilia throughout the restaurant. I wouldn't go out of my... read more

I normally don't sing the praises of too many places, but Jonathan Byrd's Cafeteria in Greenwood, Indiana (suburbia Indianapolis) is well worth going out of the way for IF you like cafeteria cuisine (I realize that cafeterias seem to be on they're way out). When I have to go to Indianapolis from my south central community, I make it a... More

We have used Jonathan Byrd's to cater (2) events for our Church for the past 5-6 years. Not only is the food great, but they set up the food line for you and help serve. The people are excellent and service is always good. The menu is pretty diverse to choose from. I would highly recommend them for any catering... More

I miss the long cafeteria line of foods from the early days but they do have the most requested things still on this shortened line. The broccoli salad is still my favorite and the portions are much bigger than those at the MCL cafeteria down the road. We had turkey and mashed potatoes and roast beef and mashed potatoes. The...

Ate here once and got horribly sick. Food was tasteless and looked like it had been sitting around for hours.

Be aware this is no longer a traditional cafeteria!!! Jonathan Byrd's changed their business model closing the main building and operating a place your order style restaurant operation in the smaller building at the small location. While they still serve much the same quality food the menu appears more limited. The primary focus is on the companies catering division. As... More

Can't understand how this place stays in business. If you like bland, tasteless food, it's for you. Their catering business must keep them afloat, and banquet food is better. Regular cafeteria line food is not good. Salads, vegetables, and desserts ok, but skip the entrees.

We drive to Greenwood, IN from the NE side of Indianapolis a couple times per month specifically to eat at Jonathan Byrds. The food is excellent and the portions are very large. I do have one suggestion for the cafeteria. They need to eliminate the Take Home neon sign on the front of the building which can lead someone to... More
