The food is good, the prices are too high in my opinion, for a delicatessen but it is okay for an occasional change of pace

The consistant quality and array of fresh offerings never ceases to amaze me at my favorite restaurant in Indianapolis. I am not alone as one can witness a line forming every day to enjoy the tasty deli food. This is not my first review, just an update that all is still super at Shapiro's.

Nice deli located in a shopping mall. Not a destination stop, but good deli food at a reasonable (certainly not cheap) price. Soups and sandwiches were prepared quickly and were quite tasty.

We stopped for food on return from a long weekend. Colts game crowd was assembling. Parking attendant gave us a chit to park for free. Others paid 20 for parking and 10 off their food bill. We had a scrumptious corned beef sandwhich. Delicious as always and worth the 5 extra bucks over a burger (period). Great beef, slaw, cheese... More

This was my first visit to Shapiro's. My husband has been many times and has always raved about it. I was a little intimidated by the cafeteria dining style and having to think on my feet while looking at a huge menu. The food was excellent, the service very good. The portions were huge. The prices were a little high... More

Shapiro's is a must stop if you like Corned Beef. They have a bunch of other stuff but I can't not eat a Corned Beef Sandwich when I go. They make their own rye bread. When ever I am in Indianapolis or traveling through is usually stop. Reminds me of a New York Deli, maybe better!

Totally old-school diner with huge (although not NY huge) deli sandwiches. Corned beef was excellent. Totally different vibe than almost any place in town. A little pricey if you start grabbing a bunch of things a la carte. Very strong recommendation if you are up for a no-frills deli experience.

Shapiros deli is a large ethnic deli/cafeteria serving Kosher food. The sandwiches are large both in size and in price. The days when a Jewish Deli had a large basket of breads and pickles on table when you sat down are over. And so is the value that was there. The size of the bread is now smaller even though...

Well let me tell you that if you haven't eaten here you are in for a real treat. The stuffed cabbage, corn beef on rye and matsaball (sp) is just wonderful. Every time we come near this place we make a real effort to eat there. Yes it is a little pricy but you get what u pay for. It's... More

Reuben is seemingly pricey, but easily serves two people. The German potato salad hot and a pleasant surprise when thinking of plain ol' potato salad.
