Took native New York City friends to Shapiros and they RAVED about the food. They couldn't believe the huge amounts of food for the price and they went back on their own for the next 2 days they were in town. I have lived in Indianapolis all my life and grew up going to this family owned oevr a century in existance Deli. I have never had anyhting but a wonderful mealt there. From awesome corned beef and pastrami samdwiches to lentel soup to wonderful pie and cake, they have it all! If anyone does complain about something, the staff and owner come to aid and make it up in any way they can. Always freindly and helpful. Whether take out or eat in at the cafeteria line, it will always be crowded at mealtime, but the wait is worth it!
Horrible, tiny chef salad - pre-packaged (use by end of day Monday sticker on the top) served with individually packaged Kraft blue cheese dressing (that I can get at any Kroger's). The egg tasted like it was keep in the cooler too long - very tasteless and over-cooked. The meat & cheese tasted like Kroger's deli, too. Actually, with the exception of the Swiss cheese - it wasn't as good as Kroger's. And for this I paid over $11?

I am not a real fan of cafeteria style food so my review may be skewed. This was my first visit to Shapiros, I went with a group of coworkers for lunch. I felt that the sandwiches were over priced, although they were large. I was disappointed in my dessert - a huge piece of ""peanut butter cake"" that unfortuntely didn't taste like peanut butter at all. Not a bad place to eat, but for the $10 my meal cost (no drink) I could get better elsewhere.

I've been going to Shapiro's since I was a kid and it is fantastic! $9 is a lot for a corned beef sandwhich but worth every penny. The portions are huge. The corned beef is cooked perfectly and the rye bread is great.
I now live in Portland, OR and have yet to find a Jewish deli even close. And believe me I have looked. Now sadly the only time I get to go to Shap's is when I fly home for Christmas. I actually booked my return flight this year so my family and I would have enough time to stop there for lunch on the way to the airport. I've only had the corned beef so this review really only reflects that item, but given that I only get to go once a year I don't dare mess with perfection. 25 days and counting and I will be there.

The first time we went here, it was good-obviously...we wanted to come back! So we did. and boy were we disappointed. My chicken salad sandwich was pretty gross, and no one else was satisfied with their meals, either. I'm not a big fan of cafeteria-style dining, but I had liked this place until our second[last] visit. I guess you can try it if you want, but it's really expensive, and honestly the food isn't that great. Maybe it's just a hitormiss situation, I'm not sure.
