“Good deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Shapiro's is an institution in Indy. Huge corned beef sandwiches are the mainstay. I have eaten there many times. Usually, it is very good, but the corned beef can be fatty. Pastrami is probably a better choice.

“Wasn't what I was expecting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Overall decent, Pastrami sandwich wasn't, what I thought was worth the price. It was pretty much a cafateria not a deli like I expected. Nice, clean, pleasant and seemed to have a nice selection.
I'd go back again but have to try something different. Always give a place a second chance.

“Great Corned Beef Sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

On my way back to California, I stopped over for a couple of days at a friends house in Carmel, IN. For dinner the first night, we went to Shapiro's and I had a corned beef on rye sandwich, much like the ones I used to get in NYC when I lived there. The sandwich and side of potato salad were so good, that we went back there again the next night and I ordered the same thing. Just as good as the first night. If the sandwiches weren't so huge, I definitely would have ordered one of their great looking desserts.

Try Shapiro's if you're ever in the Carmel area.

“Great deli food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I love Shapiro's and have been coming here for years. Their sandwiches are outstanding, dinners are delicious and the desserts are incredible. You pay a hefty price for a sandwich and they used to be larger and that made ordering a half sandwich more affordable. So my only complaint is the prices go up and the sandwiches have gotten smaller but they still taste fantastic.

“Delicious Desserts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Didn't eat an actual meal here, but got some desserts from their carry-out dessert case. The cheesecake/devil's food cake was incredibly good as was the raspberry bar and the rhubarb crumble. Highly recommended!
