There’s nothing flashy or upscale about Peppy Grill in the historic Fountain Square district of Indianapolis. In fact, the small, old-style diner, which is open 24 hours a day, specializes in easygoing charm rather than an eloquent experience. The majority of the main dining area’s seating options position guests literally next to the facility’s kitchen and grill, separated from food prep by nothing more than a countertop. And while haughtier eateries might label this as chef’s counter seating, Peppy Grill is much simpler, with an all-day breakfast menu that leans heavily on eggs and potatoes. Of course, there are hamburgers on offer, and if you’re in the mood to split a sizzling steak tenderloin with a loved one, it’s possible to grab a more discreet table opposite the kitchen and cash register counter.

The griddle at Bearcats Restaurant releases sizzling applause beneath eggs, sausage, pancakes, and hot sandwiches. At the vintage booths and counters, the clatter of silverware punctuates sound from a 52-inch screen TV broadcasting football games or security-camera footage from accident-prone toupee shops. The eatery also carries a selection of wine and beer, including draughts from Indianapolis’ own Sun King Brewery.

Chef Rima had a lot of luck with the homestyle recipes at her restaurant The Porch. So when an opportunity came up to expand, she took a cue from Hollywood executives and created a spinoff restaurant, Rima's Diner. The diner has a 1950s feel, with photos of Elvis and Marilyn looking over guests as they dig into plates of crusty chicken pot pie or country-fried pork tenderloins. Her desserts are just as traditional. She decorates german-chocolate, strawberry, and coconut cakes with simple yet beautiful layers of creamy frosting and slices of fresh fruit. When the sun is out, guests can take their fare to the outdoor patio to enjoy the sunshine and be better informed when talking to strangers about the weather.
