We were visiting Indianapolis for the weekend and had found this restaurant because of it being on Food Network, DDD's. It is a bit rundown and food was okay, just not as spectacular as we had expected. Both had steaks, onion rings and coleslaw. The food came out extremely fast but the onion... read more

As the title says everyone from the cooks, servers, and hostess screamed "we don't care about you, we don't care about your jobs!" When I came in I was greeted with an annoyed grimace of the hostess. As I waited to be seated the hostess looks at me and says in a rude tone "sit anywhere". She seemed thoroughly annoyed... More

A whole group of us went and the Beef&Noodles was fantastic, tried some of the Mrs's Chili Spagetti...very tasty. The rest of the group split a pizza and one had a hamburger...no one had any complaints :)

I always make it a point to visit the restaurants featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and dives during my travels. This was not one of the best I've been to but the food was still quite good. Good value and good service too.

Ate here with some friends during Final Four weekend 2015. We came in around 9:30am for breakfast, and were immediately seated. I ordered Beef Hash, Hash browns covered with cheese, and Biscuit smothered in Sausage Gravy. It was all really good, and I would recommend anyone to eat here for at least breakfast.

So while in the area for business I see a recommendation for the Steer-In to eat. It was also noted on Diners, Drive Ins, & Dives. So I drive over for dinner at night and being winter the area is pretty dark at 7pm. I pull in to the parking lot and there are other cars there, but the inside... More

We love trying to find Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives places whenever we travel. We came in for breakfast and found great service and delicious food. Great Sausage Gravy, great "Steer-in potatoes" and an over all great value.

Another Triple D visit for the family. The place truly had the old time diner feel. The staff was really friendly and did a great job. The menu was pretty huge and there was a nice selection of different types of food and the prices were a great value for the amount that you would receive. I had the meatball... More

Was looking forward to visiting here after seeing it on TV. We certainly weren't disappointed. Really good downhome cooking and plenty of it. We got therte just before closing time and were not made to feel rushed at all. The chicken livers were just right.
