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. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
