My rating should be more like 3 1/2 if TA would allow. So, let me begin with the issues that reduced the rating from a 5.
First, 1/2 'point' because I waited for an excessive amount of time for my beer to arrive. It was ordered at the same time that the meal was ordered (because when the waitress asked about water earlier, I indicated I did not want any and she moved on before I could order a beer) and arrived quite close to the same time that the meal arrived. I would usually have 2 beers during such a meal, but I didn't finish my first one until about mid-entree.
Second: 3/4 point deduction.....There is a real management problem on this one, in my opinion, and in the opinion of many other people. When the bill is presented there are gratuity calculations at the bottom "for your convenience." First of all, they ignored the traditional 15%. Secondly, the $$ amounts were figured on the total bill, which included taxes. Again, everything I read and have known is that the tip is on the bill BEFORE taxes. Management needs to review their thinking on this one as I know of several people who will not be returning because of it. And, I figure my own tip regardless of what they suggest. And, because I am not at all in favor of the suggestion approach, there are times that it probably hurts the server when I evaluate the amount I want to tip when the service has been marginal only because they are trying to get me to tip more, to include on the tax. Yes, I know that that is my problem, but I am not alone.
The service was good, other than the arrival of the beer.
There were 6 of us and everyone was pleased with their food.
I would be happy to recommend the Friendly Tavern because of the quality of the food, but would temper my recommendation based on the above.

Big city food in small town. Wow. Great menu. Steaks's, pork prepared several ways and lots of great food. We had party of 6. Had several menu selections including the night special of chicken. Super salads. Great food. Good service. Fair prices. Close parking. Great setting with bikes. Really a great little place. We will return often.

Award winning and family-owned since 1980. Well known for our donuts, Titus also offers Boar's Head Brand meat and cheese sandwiches as well as soups. Titus has their own coffee brand and popcorn, and makes cookies, cakes and other fine products.
Never have I ever had a donut this good. Wow! I’m already sad we drove away without buying more than a dozen. The fluffy soft dough decompressing when I take a bite all while my tongue attacks the icing in a symphony of sweetness that’s not overbearing… wow I just can’t even describe it. Even that previous statement doesn’t do it justice, only sounds like I’m trying too hard.
That’s how good this place is. I just can’t encourage you enough. Try one of everything. They told me the “Persian” is what they’re known for but I personally liked the honey bun best. Seriously, try them all.

So, part of every vacation I take involves a culinary hunt for regional favorites. We heard about Hoosier pie...and had 2 failed attempts to find it in Indianapolis. So, my trip App suggested a My Sugar Pie about 20 minutes outside of downtown.
So, if you have never had a Indiana Sugar pie...it's like...well...it's a combination...uhhh...I can't explain it.
But, it is the best pie I have ever eaten.
If there is one rub...they can't ship them to Pennsylvania.
I hope to come back

This is a solid, but not especially special Starbucks. It is quite small and services its function for those traveling and wanting to get gas and coffee. Not a good place to meet.

In its former location, this restaurant was my favorite. Cozy, great oyster bar (I love oysters), excellent food and good wait staff. Unfortunately, they had a fire and opened a new location, basically across the street. The new location has high ceilings and virtually no sound absorption. The result is excellent food and service in a very noisy environment. The last time I was there my date and I had trouble talking to each other over the ambient noise.

One of my favorite burger places for a simply delicious meal! My best meal to get is a burger with mozzarella and avocado . Like the fact that while they do have the standard menu you can design your own burger as well and for those who prefer they have salads and chicken as well !

Brought my 13 year old grandson and a friend there for an afternoon lunch between games in a football tournament. We wondered how they would like it being an old fashion country type of place. They loved it. Good service. Good food. Good size portions. Reasonable price. Wasn't hurried so could spend time waiting between games.

Just finished a delightful breakfast at this trendy cafe in old town Zionsville. An array of creatively conceived breakfast selections along with delightful surroundings and excellent service. Would most definitely drive an hour to visit here again. You won’t be able to leave without picking up a few bakery items at the register. My omelet was of the finest ingredients with a unique presentation. Loved the fresh brewed ice tea. A great find.

We stopped coming here for a while due to inconsistent food. All the other places have inconsistent food too, so we decided to try it again.
Tacos de Carnitas were good. Tacos in many Indianapolis restaurants have just plain meat on tortillas (see photo). The pico de Gallo and taco sauce were good toppings.
Chips and salsa were good. I asked the server for a spicier salsa, and he brought some our right away.
Queso fundido was very good.
Sopapilla with ice cream was OK. True Sopapilla is an Indian fry bread that is soft and pillowy when deep fried. These were flat flour tortillas fried crispy, then coated with cinnamon and sugar. We ate the ice cream, sauce and whipped cream...very good.
Single shots of Jose Quervo were $5.75 ea...much better deal than most bars/restaurants in the area.
What we didn't like: we initially asked for Queso fundido, then immediately asked not to include It. It came out anyway. We figured something got lost in the language. It turned out better than the other tacos chorizo that we ordered but didn't eat. I asked for plain sopapillas, but they delivered the upcharged version with ice cream. It was much better that way anyway, so we didn't make a big deal out of it.
Our waiter was very nice, and the food came out super fast.
I would return, since they are just across the street from us. Again, the title says it all. I can't speak to Authenticity, since I have never eaten in Mexico. I have had better, and I have had much worse.
