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. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
