For over 5 years Shapiro's has new our New Years Meal! Corned Beef and Cabbage and black-eyed peas! It must be a lot of peoples tradition too because we see the same people year after year. The food is pricey but the portions are generous and you'd be hard pressed to find better corned beef anywhere else! See you there... More

Visited Shapiro's a few Saturdays ago right at lunch time. Very crowded but worth the wait. HUGE sandwiches in the style that you'd expect from a traditional Jewish deli. It WAS kind of unorganized because we couldn't see the menu until we were being pressured to order. The side items came before the entrees so we didn't know if they... More

They have been doing it for years. Family and friends enjoy. A tall order stop where few can find anything but good things to say! Tasty, good, food in a place that gets it right. Better to arrive way hungry!

Everyone raves about Shapiro's but if you have visited some real deli's in New York one will quickly realize how average and over priced Shapiro's is. I don't find this restaurant anything special.

I started going to Shapiro's as child, when my parents (Clyde & Gussie) would take me and brothers here for deli food, and a Friday or Saturday , this was back in the early 1950's. Shapiro's is not a Restaurant it's an "Institution" of many families growing up on the Southside, it a part of their family history too. I... More

Shapiros has great food but their prices sure have gone up to the point they are pricing themselves out of business. You get a lot of food and I guess it isn't too bad if you split a meal or want leftovers.

Bring your full appetite, or bring someone to share with. Their corned beef sandwich on bun or rye is one of the largest and best you'll ever have.

The sandwiches are thick with flavorful meat, but sometimes the meat has lots of tough gristle. Genuinely like a New York deli, with New York prices to match.

If you leave here hungry you must have taken home a doggie bag. I had a Ruben sandwich and potato salad . Am full to the rim . Very large sandwiches. Nice atmosphere friendly people.would recommend . The deserts look tempting but was full . Next time we may just go for desert.

This place has been here forever, the atmosphere at lunchtime is iconic. They serve hundreds of meals at lunchtime, all cafeteria style and there is a great classic Jewish deli selection (check out the menu on the web site). I visit about once every two years as I don't often get to Indy and even less seldom at lunch time.... More
