I don't get to the Broad Ripple area much as I have a bit of "crowd-phobia" but I figured for lunch it would be okay and I've been wanting to try this place. So glad I did, the smoked pulled pork is to die for and it's a HUGE portion. served with a side dish which chose a side salad... read more

My husband and I went for lunch and had a great lunch. Service was excellent. It was Friday during Lent so we both had the fish tacos. They were quite good although I don't think they were as good as the Monon Food Company's tacos. We had a nice leisurely lunch and were not rushed out. Will definitely be going... More

A friend and I had a very tasty lunch. He loved his pulled pork with sweet potato fries, and I tried the house special fish tacos. They were good, but extremely messy to eat, with way too much shredded cabbage which disguised the very tiny portions of fish. The accompanying rice with black beans was fine, but nothing out of...

1/14/15 @ 4:30pm. Having never been, we were very excited to give this place a shot. Elliot our waiter was fantastic. He was very patient and explain everything in good detail. I opted for the fish and chips which had an amazing flavor albeit maybe just a tab bit greasy for my liking. Three large pieces of fish with garlic... More

When we are Indy we always make sure we eat at Fire On The Monon. The service is good, the staff is nice and I haven't had a bad meal there. You should try it

This has become our favorite local spot. The fresh ingredients and combination of ingredients in the dishes are wonderful. From the starters, salads, pulled pork bbq, fish and dessert it always is great which is why we return again and again.

I knew that I had to try the Hoosier Pork Tenderloin while in Indiana. This is a piece of pork tenderloin pounded thin, breaded, and deep fried. In other places, the serving had been on a bun with an inch or so showing around the edge of the bun. Here the two pieces of bread laid flat were totally covered... More

Came for dinner with my children and grandchild. Located in Broadripple in a quaint neighborhood setting. We enjoyed our dinner outside. Service was impeccable. All of us enjoyed our dishes immensely. The spinach artichoke dip disappeared in seconds served with tasty crispy chips. The dirty mac and cheese was to die for along with the Tug of War pork sandwich.... More

If I could go here every night for dinner I would. It is that good. They have great options for all types of tastes, and everything has a unique twist without being too out there. I had DELICIOUS salmon and cleaned my plate. The interior of the restaurant is really welcoming and cool. However, I would definitely recommend reservations. We... More
