Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries has filed plans for a new restaurant near Greenwood and is looking for 10 more locations in Marion County. Five GuysThe chain also is preparing to open a new restaurant in the Target center at 116th Street and Interstate 69 in Hamilton County. The Greenwood location is at U.S. 31 and Shelby Street. The Virginia-based chain, which features a spare menu with burgers, kosher hotdogs and fries, has one location in Indiana, along 86th Street just east of Michigan Road. They're looking for locations in Castleton, Broad Ripple and downtown, said Scott A. Greaves, who runs the chain's stores in Indianapolis.
  • is it like in-out burger anyone know naything about them
  • Why not a location on the eastside? People on this side of town like to eat too.
  • US 31 and Shelby is not Greenwood. Sorry to be picky but it's not. I'll give it a try.
  • Five Guys is great. I was introduced to these burgers while in DC last month. Apparently it is a staple in the Capitol Hill area.

    Five Guys is a step above fast food. They have great burgers, for a reasonable price. Their fries are great too, they come served in a large brown paper bag.
  • I went once. Reminds me of Fatburger (but not as excellent!). It was definitely a tasty burger and I intend on returning there often.
  • I ate here in June when I was in Wilmington... more expensive than your typical fast food place, but the cheesburger I had was incredible! Can't wait to stop on over to the place on Shelby St when it opens.
  • Cory, any word as to what is going in the old India Garden location in downtown?
  • Awesome! Indy needs more transfat and wormburger!
  • I know that the recent Nuvo 'Best of Indy' said differently, but if you want the best burger in Indy try Coaches Tavern on Penn & Maryland, plus it isn't a national chain/franchise. They recently added a buffalo burger to the menu that is delicious and slightly healthier
  • India Garden is going to be on NE corner of Ohio/Delaware next to Barcalona across from the Regions tower.
  • Does anyone have any idea how to get in contact with Franchise owners? I have a question for them. Thanks!
  • Best burger in Indy? Get your fat azz over to Weber Grill. Wed special is the BBQ burger and DAYUUUUUM is that a best burger ever. That place rocks.
  • I've heard the old India Garden location will be an Applebee's or somesuch.
  • I was down by Shelby/31 this weekend..It looks like they are building a Ruby Tuesdays in the same area on the old Colorado Steakhouse sight.
  • Oh boy, an Applebees! Just what our chain-ridden downtown was missing!
  • eastside
    I am going to try to bring five guys to the eastside. If anyone has actually lived or commute though washington st and us 40, it is a growing area and resturants are popping up now. With the new construction wrapping up the next few weeks. More traffic will be flowing through the area and believe five guys will be a model of many franchises coming to the eastside.
    • eastside indy
      I noticed a new small strip mall going up where the old Denny's was, by Washington Square, on Wash. St. just east of Mitthoeffer. It appears that the east corner of that new strip mall is taking the size and shape of a Five Guys. I hope I'm right!

    1. What became of this project? Anyone know?

    2. Scott, could you post an enlarged photo of the exterior of the building? This will be a great addition to Walnut Street. This area will only continue to develop with additions like this. Also, please give us more updates on the "Cultural Trail light" expansion. Also a great move for the city, as long as there is maintenance money set aside.

    3. Great story IBJ! Citizens don't have a real sense of the financial magnitude of supporting Indy's sports and tourism sector. The CIB was a brilliant idea for creating a highly integrated public-private partnership to support this sector from the economic activity it generates. Unfortunately, most folks think the benefits of that economic activity accrue directly to the City budget, and it doesn't. So though the CIB is facing lean times (covering its costs while maintaining minimally acceptable reserves), the City is operating with deficit - less tax revenue than expenses each year - with a very fragile reserve balance. That's why it's so challenging for the City to fund basic needs or new intitatives (e.g. pre-k education; new jail), and some credit rating agencies have downgraded Indy from it's past stellar AAA status. More reporting on City finances would be welcomed.

    4. Sure, I'll admit that it bugs me to see that the IBJ.COM censors it's blog posts almost as much as the D of I does when someone points out the falsehoods and fabrications. _____But I think it bothers me almost as much that Captain/Defender/Disciple get his yanked too. You see, those of us with a sense of integrity, humanity, compassion, and a need for fact based opinion WANT to see all of his screeds posted. It makes our point so much better than we can do it ourselves.

    5. We're conflating two very different topics. Voter fraud is a myth and excessive gun violence is all too real. I just hope rational gunowners decide to stop being shouted down by the, well, let's call them "less rational" ones.
