Just about anybody should be able to find something they like here! Great Rueben as well as all the classic dishes. And they are so thoughtful; they put the dessert dishes before the main food selection. Lots to choose from.

My daughter has been a vegetarian for several years. We were at the food court in the mall so we had plenty of options. When I suggested Shapiro, we checked the menu and it offered vegetarian Reuben. She told me that she had gotten some really good vegetarian Reubens at other restaurants and really liked them. Shapiro's idea was to... More

Wanna be chain delis roll into town and close up after a couple of years. They fail cause Shapiro's is perfection. Prices are somewhat high, but for quality and quantity, they are more than fair.

Sorry Katz', I haven't been able to visit in a few years so have cheated on you. My husband and I got a ton of food for family and extended family. It did take us fifteen minutes to go around the Stadium with one-way streets et al. Service was wonderful and everyone had what they wanted. I got my hot... More

Easy to find, within one minute of I-70. A true cafeteria experience. My husband and I split a sandwich; half turkey, half bologna(love kosher bologna), side of green beans and side of mac n cheese. The mac n cheese melts in your mouth, by far the BEST ever. Sandwich was huge, glad we split. Wonderful selection of desserts, cannoli was... More

Want to meet family and just have a great relaxing meal this is the place to go. We have been going to Shapiro's for over 30 years and the food and quality has always been consistent. The employees are always friendly, plenty of choices on the menu, including desserts and baked goods. Not only is the food excellent but the... More

I read about this online and decided it was a must stop when I was in Indianapolis. I went to the downtown location, and there were loads of things to choose from. I decided on meatloaf and boiled cabbage, with a slice of sugar cream pie for dessert. Everything was good, and the portions were more than I could eat.

Thank mln5555
