Just a thought but you might want to call Shapiro’s to see if either of thier locations will be open. I looked at the website but didn’t see anything about Christmas day.
Being a single guy with virtually non-existent cooking skills, my Christmas Day dinner is always at a chain truckstop, usually Flying J. Pretty sad, I know, but it’s better than starving.
How about a Chinese restaurant? They’re all open in the Philly area.
In my experience traveling on the interstate on Christmas Day, even McD and Burger King close at noon. We wound up at a very crowded truck stop, the only thing open for food or gas. Forgot, one year a Chinese buffet was open.
Platz, what about staying in a hotel with an attached restaurant? Maybe it would be more likely to be open than a standalone eatery?
I am sorry to report that INDIANA, ALL OF INDIANA, will close on Friday Evening December 24th at 6 PM, to allow all the Residents and Inmates of the Hoosier State to enjoy Christmas with their families. INDIANA will reopen, after church, on Sunday December 26th !!
Seriously, I am not sure which restaurants will be open, other than Waffle House !!
Hi! I’ll be traveling Christmas day and am stopping for the night near Indianapolis. Does anyone know of a good place to eat that will be open that night?
Since I’m eating Asian at Lu Lu’s Noodles in Pittsburgh on Dec. 26,
Excellent choice! You will enjoy Lu Lu’s!
yes you should check websites and phone ahead or be TTM.
But the OP has not stated party size. my picks are the
Polo Club and BucaDe Bepo if in Indy.
only if you have a Family. Feeds an Army.LOL
I note that the Melting Pot, which apparently was open on Christmas last year, says on its web site that it will be closed on December 24 and 25.
I am surprised no one has added Dominos Delivers on Christmas.
You stated region before. That could be 30 miles either side of Indy.
Have to add Ruth’s Chris is open too.
But Flying Hooks. Oh My.
It’s Christmas- splurge.
Scarest place I found is by the name
I just Googled
Indianapolis Restaurants open on Christmas day 2010
There a few good ones. I would wait till closer and/or Pick-up Local paper.
Always ads for restaurants open that day.
OR for the whole state of IN
There is a Flying J truck stop on I-65 at either the 99 or the 95 mile exit on the south side of Indy. Also a Pilot T/S. But F/J is better. Also another Flying J on the 465 on the west side of town between I-70 and I-74.
Thank you all for your helpful and entertaining replies. Since I’m eating Asian at Lu Lu’s Noodles in Pittsburgh on Dec. 26, I think I’ll pass on Christmas Chinese. I’ve never been to a Flying J’s so if I see one open, I’ll try it. I just checked and there’s a Bob Evan’s adjacent to the hotel. If they’re open, I think I’ll have chicken and noodles. Otherwise, I’ll make use of the fridge and microwave in my room.
I’ll check Shapiro’s and other forum favorites for my return trip.
Happy Holidays! KP
A few years ago we got to my late mother’s place in small town Indiana the day before Christmas. Most of the rest of the family were traveling that day so we were having the family Christmas the day after Christmas. On Christmas day we decided to go out to eat so we ended up at a Chinese place. The odd thing was that there were maybe 25-30 Mexicans there having Christmas dinner.
