This is my second of two diners in the Indianapolis area. Before leaving, we decided to stop at one more. Since it’s “famous” we couldn’t say no.
Indy’s Famous Pancake House and Grill is located in a small strip mall. It’s easy to find, and the outside is bold. The inside, however, is dirty. When you walk in, your feet are immediately met with a sticky floor. There are several booths, tables, as well as a lit up bar area.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh and refilled often. It was good diner coffee, and I have no complaints.
Indy’s Famous Pancake House and Grill have everything a diner would have. From pancakes to omelets, to lunch options. If you are looking for a healthy choice, they do have salads, but I wouldn’t come here for them. As a pancake house, they are known for their pancakes. I wish I had come before my half marathon, and carb loaded here.
I decided to order the Indy 500 Skillet. On paper, it sounded like it would be massive and it came with: Canadian bacon, sausage, chorizo, gyro meat, onions, mushrooms, shredded cheese, and hashbrowns.
I also chose to get a biscuit with it.
When the food arrived, it as significant but not massive. While the food was good, I was expecting a more substantial portion.
The waitress was nice, and our food came out quickly. Our waitress made sure everything was refilled and that we got things as needed. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
For my skillet and coffee, it was $13.
I thought the Indy Famous Pancake House and Grill were excellent, but I’m not sure I would go back. It’s hard for me to look past how sticky and dirty the floor was. The food was decent, and the waitress was friendly.
