Chefs' ovens burn much hotter than conventional ovens, allowing them to quickly roast meats and melt glacier chunks into gourmet ice water. Enjoy professional cooking with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of American fare at Grindstone Charley’s Restaurant & Pub. This Groupon is valid at the locations on Crawfordsville Road and West Rockville Road.
Having baked, fried, and grilled American favorites for nearly half a century, the Fogelsong family behind Grindstone Charley’s Restaurant & Pub continues to honor their Hoosier roots with a menu of scrumptious burgers, steaks, and sandwiches. Diners armor themselves with absorbent napkins before charging headfirst into half-slabs of baby back ribs ($12.99), which greet them with a torrent of tangy house barbecue sauce. A trove of sherried mushrooms rests beside two 5-ounce filet medallions ($18.99) that serve as meaty replicas of the useless, inedible prizes bestowed at nearby stock-car races. Doused in Jack Daniel’s honey-bourbon sauce, the drunken chicken ($7.99) totters on its toasted sesame bun alongside an onion-straw garnish, pepper jack cheese, and strips of crispy bacon. Chefs cast their nets into the kitchen’s flash fryer to pull up breaded shrimp ($12.99), which return to their natural element when dipped into a spicy sea of cocktail sauce.
