Recently I was in Indianapolis for a wedding. Since my new goal is to go to a new diner in every state, it was a perfect time to try a diner in Indiana. There aren’t a lot of diners in Indianapolis, but I managed to find one. While it doesn’t have “diner” in the name, it’s still a diner. It looks, feels, and tastes like a diner.
The Paragon Restaurant is located on the corner in a small strip mall. There is plenty of parking. The inside has two full rooms with plenty of booths and tables. It lacks a regular bar to sit. They don’t have advertising placemats, but instead, the entire table top is filled with advertisements. It’s a pretty cool way to save paper.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, and I have no complaints. The waitress refilled it often. There was nothing particularly good or bad about it.
The Paragon Family Resturant has several options like any diner. They serve all day breakfast, plus lunch, and dinner. It wouldn’t be my first choice if you are trying to eat healthy as it’s typical of a small town, diner.
I decided to order the Mexican Skillet. It came with green peppers, onions, jalapeno peppers, chorizo, eggs, sausage, topped with cheese. It also came with either two pancakes or 2 biscuits, and I chose the biscuits.
The food itself was good but filling. I haven’t had a Mexican skillet in a long time, but it was filling. I like spicy foods and appreciated how spicy it was without being overpowering. The biscuits were good too, and they were some of my favorite diner biscuits.
The waitress was friendly and kind, and the food came out fast. It was a great experience.
For my skillet and coffee, the coffee it was $14.
I liked the Paragon Family Restaurant, and if I were in the area, I would go back. It’s a great option with plenty of choices.
