Bennigan’sA closed Bennigan's restaurant in Fishers is now home to Hot Shotz. The local restaurant's previous location, near 96th Street and Gray Road, was destroyed in a fire on June 28. The new location is attached to the Holiday Inn Fishers hotel and is larger, at 2,600 square feet. The restaurant already is serving customers, but a grand opening is scheduled for Oct. 18.
In other restaurant news: Allen Commercial has begun construction on a 10,000-square-foot retail strip at the corner of U.S. 31 and Smith Valley Road in Greenwood that will include Dunkin Donuts.
  • Hot Shotz: Part Deux?
  • Que the Dunkin Donuts fat/ignorant comments...
  • In still other restaurant news, O'Charley's at Glendale appears to have closed in the past couple of months.
  • Exciting stuff...
  • Hot Shotz: Part Deux?

    I have to admit, I LOL'd at that!
  • ocharleys was open yesserday.
  • O'Charley's was also open on Sassurday.
  • I eat at the O'Charlies at Glendale all the time. It's still alive and kicking.
    As for Hot Shotz: Part Deux... too funny!
    I'm still trying to envision where it was on 96th and Gray road where it was destroyed by Fire? There are the 2 strip centers on the South side of that intersection. Was it in one of those? Just strange that I don't remember there being a fire up there recently. Then again, I haven't been down that way too often to notice over the past couple of months.
  • I am scratching my head as to a fire with Hot Shotz. A2Z one of my favorite resturants is right next door and there appears no evidence of fire damage.
  • They have the exterior cleaned up now, but I belive the windows next to A2Z are still boarded up. Every store in the strip smelled like smoked wings for at least two weeks folloiwng the fire.
  • Siam Square (Thai Food) opened in Fountain Square a couple of days ago.

    It's good!
  • RJ Wingers on the eastside has closed. Number disconnected.

    Siam Square (Thai Food) opened in Fountain Square a couple of days ago.

    It’s good!

    So incredibly excited to have a Thai place in my 'hood! I can't believe IBJ is reporting on a Fishers chain when actual restaurants are opening in Indianapolis. COME ON! :)
  • Fishers is more important that Indy, just ask the Star!!!
  • Thanks for pointing out Siam Square. Keep it up with the tips!
  • Yeah, Siam Square is really good. We just ate there last night and had the leftovers for lunch today. Very tasty. And they've got a cool beer list to boot!

    Our waiter said they just opened on Monday.
  • Um, Benjamin, Hot Shotz isn't a chain as far as I can tell. And it technically used to be in Indy, it just moved a little northeast to its spacious new digs.
  • Hot Shotz is not a chain Fishers gal. It started out as a Dick's Bodacious Barbecue but the former owner wanted to try his own thing. He has since sold the restaurant and it is a unique entity.

    After their fire, they opted to reopen in a location with more capacity. They're open for business now but I think the technical Grand Reopening is November 1 or something.
  • I went to Hot Shotz for their best wings in Indy. They were sub-par at best but the wait stuff was very servicable and friendly in their efforts.

    If you want wings, go to Ale Emporium, there is no better place in Indy.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
