Recently, we put together a great guide to the various dining options here in Hendricks County, Indiana, using Yelp! reviews.
Today's post, however, is specifically geared toward our many awesome visitors.
We've all been there...visiting a new town, so exciting, but not quite sure where to go and how to make the most of the visit. On the many road trips my family has been fortunate to take, we often waste a considerable amount of time deciding on where to eat.
Sometimes, we're too tired from our travel to venture out and would rather have something delivered. Other times, we want to venture out, but not so far as too get lost or risk another hour on an empty stomach. An internet search alone never seems to narrow things down enough.
So, we offer our visitors this guide to delivery, take-out and dining options around Hendricks County's three main hotel clusters in Avon, Brownsburg and Plainfield.
A few details about the list. Thanks to food delivery services, you can get some really good eats delivered to your door - or hotel room. We've included a few fan favorites for each area, but due to changing availability we've also included a search link that will take you straight to what is currently being delivered in each of the areas.
Hopefully, this list will help you make the most of your time spent in our county and allow you to experience some of the great food it has to offer.
If you're dog tired from your drive or travel, there's no need to fret, you can order delicious fare from Portillo's or Magoos California Pizza Kitchen for delivery or carry-out.
Straight out of Chicago, Portillo's specializes in Italian beef, hot dogs, tamales and burgers, but don't forget dessert. How does a chocolate cake shake sound or perhaps strawberry shortcake? Both are amazing and popular.
