Spinning mad amounts of dough above one's head is an amusing way to display a coin collection, but it requires superhuman stamina to maintain. Rest your triceps and leave the dough-spinning to the pros with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, sandwiches, wings, and more at Gallagher's Pizza Express. Pick up a pie at Gallagher's Madison Avenue storefront, or take advantage of the pizzeria's complimentary delivery service.
Gallagher's specializes in crafting premium pizzas made with locally grown vegetables, premium meat, signature cheeses, and sweet sauce prepared fresh daily. If its menu were a Broadway stage, the crowd-pleasing “SINK” pizza ($21.29 for a medium) would be its noble, tap-dancing star with a silly yet symbolically relevant stage name. The SINK, Gallagher's top-selling pie, is piled high with 14 fresh toppings, including pepperoni, two types of sausage, bacon, ham, ground beef, mushrooms, olives, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, banana peppers, and more. Upon completion in the kitchen, the monstrous edible weighs in at around seven pounds, and upon completion at your dinner table, you'll have to weigh in missing the button that sprung from your fitted cardigan mid-meal.
Customers seeking a belly filler with greater buoyancy can opt for the all-veggie garden delight pizza ($19.29 for a medium) or test their Swiss Army fork on a plate of healthy chef's salad ($6.25), a satisfying mix of romaine lettuce, black olives, tomatoes, pepperoni, baked ham, and cheese. Lite pizzas are also available, featuring the same great flavors as the full-fledged pies, only served in smaller portions. The unassuming, closed-face countenances of stromboli and oven-baked sandwiches ($5.99 each) surprise diners when they bite in and are bitten back by the robust flavors of ham and cheese, Gallagher's meatball, and veggie combos. Fill in any persisting gastronomic gaps by adding an order of parmesan-dusted breadsticks ($3.99) or hot 'n’ spicy wings ($5.75 for eight pieces) to your order.
The Indianapolis Monthly named Gallagher's Pizza Express’s SINK pizza the Best Crowd Pleaser. The restaurant gets a four-star average rating from three Yahoo! Locals and a number of positive recommendations on CityVoter; it has 370 fans on Facebook.
Gallagher's II Family Restaurant
Stepping through Gallagher's II Family Restaurant's front door is like coming home. That's because the staff at this restaurant treats each and every customer like a member of the family. A just like a trip home, they feed you nearly the second you walk in the door. Their hand-tossed and New York–style pizzas fill stomachs with cheese, tomato sauce, and succulent toppings including Italian sausage and pineapple. For a less geometrically precise entree, they boast a grilled chicken-breast dinner and reuben sandwiches. And because no meal is complete without entertainment, Gallagher's hosts live music nights, karaoke, and trivia every week.
Not just a family to those inside the establishment, Gallagher's works to share its community spirit with everyone in the region. The restaurant has raised more than $200,000 for local schools and organizations, established a canned food drive for neighbors in need, and delivers pizza to nearby shelters during the winter holidays.
