A Denver restaurant chain named for the pickles that come on every plate wants to open 10 locations in central Indiana. Spicy PickleThe 31-restaurant chain plans to begin construction on its first location soon, along 116th Street in Fishers Town Commons. The chain also has signed a letter of intent to take space in the expansion of Castleton Square Mall, across from Borders, said John Van Engelen, one of two local franchise owners. They're also planning locations downtown, at the airport and anywhere else with a strong lunch business. The restaurants feature gourmet paninis, subs, salads and soups.

  • is it me we lose some chains but yet we pick up more chains this is the 2nd chain this week to anounce expanding into indy hopefully jack in the box is next
  • sounds good, but another chain. sigh....
  • I have been to one of these in Denver. It is a chain but it also has great food!
  • More chains! I'm sick of chains. Shop local!
  • Great, fresh food. Just recently dined in the Chicago (Lincoln Park) location and can't wait for them to open in Indy. They will be a great addition to the marketplace and you will enjoy it too!
  • regardless of how good their food is...boo to more chains!! Its really hard to
    take out of town friends and family to good restaurants that showcase Indianapolis when all they see is the same crappy chains they have around their house.
  • @Matthew: What about the Mass Ave & Fountain Sq. area? Scholars, Aseops, Agio, Element, Yats, MacNivens just to name a few; it isn't that hard to find non-chain restaurants here. All you have to do is look.
  • WOWWWWW I just checked out the web site i think the food sounds great, better than a greasy burger chain. Looking forward to checking it out.
  • Menu looks great! While more chains may upset some chains tend to have more to offer the community with donations to charities and things like that. I look forward to new restaurants no matter what they are.

  1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

  2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

  3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

  4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

  5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
