I saw a lot of negative reviews on this place, but my son and I try to hit one DDD place each time we visit a city. We were all in the mood for breakfast food after noon, so we took a chance.
All of us really enjoyed our food. My wife had bisquits and gravy. She said the bisquits were fluffy and the gravy good. One of my sons had the chicken tenders. These were house made, not the frozen pre-fab deals. He said they were great. My other son had the gourmet grill cheese which he polished off quickly. I had corned beef hash and eggs. This was one of the best I have ever had. This was moist, pulled corn beef with hardly any potato. As a matter of fact it came with hash browns which didn't make much sense until it arrived and I realized it was almost all corned beef.
Why not 5 stars? Service was a bit slow. We didn't order anything unusual but it seemed to take a while to get our food. Also, I don't have an issue with dated decor, but this place is dirty. A little cleaning would go a long way. That said, I would come back the next time I am in Indy just for the corned beef hash!
