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. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
