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.

  3. In the first sentance "As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss are build quality & price." need a way to edit

  4. As a resident of one of these new Carmel Apartments the issue the local governments need to discuss is build quality & price. First none of these places is worth $1100 for a one bedroom. Downtown Carmel or Keystone at the Crossing in Indy. It doesn't matter. All require you to get in your car to get just about anywhere you need to go. I'm in one of the Carmel apartments now where after just 2.5 short years one of the kitchen cabinet doors is crooked and lawn and property maintenance seems to be lacking my old Indianapolis apartment which cost $300 less. This is one of the new star apartments. As they keep building throughout the area "deals" will start popping up creating shoppers. If your property is falling apart after year 3 what will it look like after year 5 or 10??? Why would one stay here if they could move to a new Broad Ripple in 2 to 3 years or another part of the Far Northside?? The complexes aren't going to let the "poor" move in without local permission so that's not that problem, but it the occupancy rate drops suddenly because the "Young" people moved back to Indy then look out.

  5. Why are you so concerned about Ace hardware? I don't understand why anyone goes there! Every time ive gone in the past, they don't have what I need and I end up going to the big box stores. I understand the service aspect and that they try to be helpful but if they are going to survive I think they might need to carry more specialty parts.
