One of the very many perks that come along with living at our Broad Ripple apartments is that each unit has a gorgeous designer kitchen with a breakfast bar and updated appliances—making it the perfect place to cook a delicious meal for your friends and family. However, when you feel like treating yourself, or you’re craving something specific, there are lots of yummy restaurants nearby. Here are some of the best restaurants and cafes within a short drive (or walk) from The Coil.
Literally, a two-minute walk from our apartments in Indianapolis is HopCat. When you’re looking for really good beer with really good food—this is your spot. Try a Golden Crown Golden Ale, Zombie Dust American Pale Ale, or a Boiler Black Porter. You can choose your pint based on what would pair best with your Cosmik Fries, wings, burger, or mac and cheese. Head over to the HopCat website to view menus, order online, and more.
Broad Ripple Tavern
Everyone needs to have that welcoming neighborhood bar where you’re greeted by your name, they pour cold drinks, and serve up tasty pub fare—and that place is the Broad Ripple Tavern. The environment is your typical tavern vibe with pool tables and TVs, where you’ll find a full bar, draft beers, and daily specials. The menu includes classic items like jalapeno poppers, burgers, fish and chips, and more. Visit the Broad Ripple Tavern website for all the details you need.
Pizza and bourbon? Yes, please! Those are the specialties at Goodfellas Pizzeria, and they’re located just a five-minute walk from our Broad Ripple apartments. The NY-style pizza can be made with toppings of your choosing, or you can pick one of their house specialties like The Boss, Fuhgetaboutit, or The Don. You can also sit in their Wiseguy Lounge to enjoy a fantastic handcrafted cocktail or whiskey. Make reservations, order online, and view menus on the Goodfellas Pizzeria website.
“A Hoosier approach to Texas-style barbecue,” is what they say on the 317 BBQ homepage. Honoring the culture of Texas BBQ while using local ingredients is what makes them a cut above the rest. Start your meal with deviled eggs or pork belly burnt ends before moving on to an order of brisket, spare ribs, or house-made sausage. They also have draft beers, ciders, and wine. Find out all the information you need and order online through the 317 BBQ website.
If you’re looking for a real treat where you can get away from the worries and stresses of the day, head over to Flatwater Restaurant, just a three-minute walk from your front door. Sit inside the cozy restaurant or out on the relaxing waterfront deck as you enjoy tuna tartare, Korean BBQ brisket tacos, or a NY strip. They also boast a full bar along with draft beers and wine. Head over to the Flatwater Restaurant website to drool over their menu.
When you’ve got tacos and tequila on the brain, Cholita is here to satisfy. Their house tacos are some of the best in the region and include choices like grilled Adobo shrimp, charred Brussels sprouts, short rib quesabirria, and chile relleno. They also boast a seriously impressive tequila and mezcal list for you to enjoy on its own or mix in a house cocktail. Order online and view menus on the Cholita website.
