A visit to Indy for me is always a stop here. Not fancy, but it's a great New York cafeteria style Kosher deli. From the sandwiches to the main meals to the desserts, you can't go wrong. My only complain is, the portions are large, does not leave room for the wonderful pies and deserts! I always thought my family's... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I was born. The macacroni and cheese is the best-I try to find a replacement where I live and it can't be done! My favorite is corn beef on rye with mustard and an extra pickle. Stop by the bakery on your way out-makes a great gift when your visiting family

I have been going to Shapiro's Deli for 45+ years. I started going as a kid with my mom and dad and I have continued going as an adult. I work in an upper education industry and most of our students come from out of town, Shapiro's is always at the top of my recommendation list! If you haven't ever... More

Since 1905, Shapiros has been a main stay in Indianapolis. While it's not cheap ( 3 sandwiches, 2 sides & a piece of cake= $70.00!), it is delicious. Sandwiches are huge, a wide variety of meats and side items are available. On site bakery offers wonderful, homemade desserts. Conveniently located near sporting venues and hotels...within walking distance of downtown. Bring... More

When I moved to Indy, more than one person from out of the area told me to try Shapiro's. I'm glad I took their advice. Just fantastic sandwiches with Pastrami and Corned Beef made by the restaurant. I also loved the borsht. Not quite traditional but very good. I like the half and half combo sandwich where you can get... More

Way to expensive! If you are on the budget don't even think to go here. Maybe is OK to go once in a lifetime!

We love going to this historic deli restaurant when we visit Indianapolis. Every food item is brag worthy, the desserts are mouthwatering, the sandwiches are heaping with meat on delicious bread. When we parked there to go to the Colts football game at Lucas Stadium we got $10 off our parking permit because we were eating there. So glad we... More

This is more than a place to eat. It is part of Indianapolis lore. I grew up there and my wife and I lived there for several years. We have eaten at Shapiro's many times and stopped on our way back from a trip out west. She had a a Reuben and I a combination of corned beef and chopped... More
