Punch Burger IndianapolisThe owners of downtown's Pita Pit are launching their own quick-casual burger joint at the southwest corner of Ohio and Delaware streets. Punch Burger will serve hamburgers, turkey burgers and gourmet grilled cheese during lunch and dinner hours, said managing partner Travis Sealls. The restaurant has signed a lease for about 2,200 square feet next door to Crown Liquors along Ohio Street and plans to open at the end of August. The restaurant plans to serve Indianapolis beer and Indiana wine and offer happy hour specials including $1 sliders. They're planning to use local ingredients sourced from within 100 miles but still keep a full burger meal including a soft drink under $10. (Image: LoopNet)

    Really? Another gourmet burger place? How... unremarkable.
    • Agio Replacement
      Anybody know what's replacing Agio on Mass Ave? There's an orange liquor permit on the window for a company called Brew Hall, LLC.
      • Replacement for Agio
        The replacement for Agio is supposed to be a new concept from the owners of Chatham Tap. Can't wait to see what they are able to do with the space.

        @Billy - do we have one already? It'd be cool if the new place had a BYOB policy with a uncorking fee. Just pop on over to the liquor store, buy your favorite beer and you're good!
        • Downtown Candy
          Indy is getting it's first Rocket Fizz Candy Store on monument circle later this summer.
        • can't do that
          The reason they will not have a byob policy with a corkage fee is because that is against the law in the state of indiana. Sorry
        • Did this place ever open?

          • Soon
            It's opening in October.
          • October 1st
            Punch Burger is opening October 1st. Travis Sealls is one of my buddies and I've been in there to check it out. It should be fantastic. Local beef and local beer.
          • BYOB
            It's against state law to BYOB into dining establishments. Wish we could, though!

          1. President Obama has referred to the ACA as "Obamacare" any number of times; one thing it is not, if you don't qualify for a subsidy, is "affordable".

          2. One important correction, Indiana does not have an ag-gag law, it was soundly defeated, or at least changed. It was stripped of everything to do with undercover pictures and video on farms. There is NO WAY on earth that ag gag laws will survive a constitutional challenge. None. Period. Also, the reason they are trying to keep you out, isn't so we don't show the blatant abuse like slamming pigs heads into the ground, it's show we don't show you the legal stuf... the anal electroctions, the cutting off of genitals without anesthesia, the tail docking, the cutting off of beaks, the baby male chicks getting thrown alive into a grinder, the deplorable conditions, downed animals, animals sitting in their own excrement, the throat slitting, the bolt guns. It is all deplorable behavior that doesn't belong in a civilized society. The meat, dairy and egg industries are running scared right now, which is why they are trying to pass these ridiculous laws. What a losing battle.

          3. Eating there years ago the food was decent, nothing to write home about. Weird thing was Javier tried to pass off the story the way he ended up in Indy was he took a bus he thought was going to Minneapolis. This seems to be the same story from the founder of Acapulco Joe's. Stopped going as I never really did trust him after that or the quality of what being served.

          4. Indianapolis...the city of cricket, chains, crime and call centers!

          5. "In real life, a farmer wants his livestock as happy and health as possible. Such treatment give the best financial return." I have to disagree. What's in the farmer's best interest is to raise as many animals as possible as quickly as possible as cheaply as possible. There is a reason grass-fed beef is more expensive than corn-fed beef: it costs more to raise. Since consumers often want more food for lower prices, the incentive is for farmers to maximize their production while minimizing their costs. Obviously, having very sick or dead animals does not help the farmer, however, so there is a line somewhere. Where that line is drawn is the question.
