As the only restaurant in downtown Indianapolis with a large, wall-mounted grill strategically positioned near its entrance, Weber Grill glorifies the art of flame-licked cooking through a menu that appropriately features grilled pizzas, steaks, burgers, barbecue and fish. For the more health-conscious set, a variety of soups, salads and a simple side items are available as well. Wood paneling and dark-colored tables and chairs help create a warm environment at the Weber Grill, which is located at the corner of Washington Street and Illinois Street. When the weather is appropriate, street-side patio meals are an option, though the restaurant’s sectioned yet spacious interior allows for both intimate dining and large-group gatherings. Children’s menu items and gluten-free selections are also available.

Great American Grill shows it patriotism not only through the flag waving proudly on its menu cover, but also with classic American cuisine. The kitchen’s country-fried steak and breaded shrimp evoke down-home charm, as does the hearty housemade chili. Sandwiches range from juicy bacon cheeseburgers to chicken salad, and a rotating daily special infuses the menu with surprise more safely than garnishing every other meal with a lit firework.

When asked for the secret behind his delicious barbecue dishes by reporters from the LISC Indianapolis Blog, Judge Smith answered, "That's easy. It's time." Judge spent more than 10 years developing his barbecue sauce, experimenting with different recipes and spices to procure the signature tangy taste. Today, he owns his own barbecue joint, where he pairs spicy, medium, and hot versions of his sauce with the meaty sandwiches, ribs, and platters that won him accolades from CityVoter. Judge smokes his meats slowly, sending the zesty aroma of pulled pork and sausages sailing through the restaurant.

Out in the dining room, where colorful sports flags and pendants hang on the walls, diners linger over sips of fresh fruit smoothies and bites of sweet-potato pie. After meals, guests can take home a bottle of Judge's signature sauce to use for making their own barbecue or for hosting the world’s first barbecue-balloon fight.

The chefs at TJ's Kitchen cook more than 70 entrees for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but diners only need to glimpse a few of them to pick up on the comfort-food vibe. For dinner, guests feast on hand-breaded country-fried steak or stuffed burgers made with 100% Angus beef, then finish with a dessert of apple crisp topped with homemade caramel sauce. If guests come back for breakfast, they can try a spinach-and-feta omelet or bananas-foster pancakes.

Because good food, like news of your Second Life character’s recent promotion, is worth sharing with a lot of people, TJ's Kitchen has a 50-person banquet hall where guests can celebrate birthdays and other events while making use of the room’s 42-inch flatscreen TV and WiFi.
