Guy Fieri recently rolled in to Indianapolis to check out our best Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives. From tasty tamales to Philly cheesesteaks, Guy really got a sneak peek at some of the best hidden gems in Indianapolis.
Zest - Zest's name says it all as they are known for their exciting food creations in the hip SoBro area of Indianapolis. While everything is pretty darn tasty, Guy munched on tomato bon bons (pictured above).
Barking Dog - The barking lard BLT made with homemade bacon caused Guy to swoon over this dog-friendly joint, located a bit north of downtown.
Jerseys Cafe - Guy had the opportunity to sample Jersey Cafe's famous Jersey cheese steaks, which can be topped in 33 different ways. This hot spot is located north of downtown in Carmel.
Steer-In - This 50-year-old diner features tasty sandwiches and classic burgers. Guy fell in love with the made-from-scratch Italian meatball sub covered in mozzarella and asiago cheeses.
Zydeco's - Located southwest of downtown in Mooresville, this Cajun restaurant has quite the New Orleans flair. Guy opted for the homemade jambalaya and blackened catfish.
3 Sisters Cafe - This quaint and hip cafe located in Broad Ripple Village serves up a little bit of everything. Guy was a fan of the house favorite, the D'Nai, a massive pork sandwich piled high with kale.
The Tamale Place - This truly authentic Mexican restaurant had Guy tasting tamales galore. The menu includes options for homemade masa filled with everything from beef to apples.
