Don’t worry, freshman class, we haven’t forgotten about you. Here are some tried and true Butler favorites that are staples to the Bulldog life.
Qdoba Mexican Grill
6334 N. Guilford Ave.
This quick Mexican food joint is a late-night haven for many Butler students. For those of you not as nocturnal, it’s the perfect place for a roomie dinner. Known for their breakfast burritos and queso, Qdoba is affordable, fast and full of character despite its “chain” status.
Ripple Bagel Deli
850 Broad Ripple Ave.
With menu choices like “Hoosier Daddy” and “The Ga-Gagabourgh,” how can you not visit this local haunt? Located on the main drag, it truly is unique to Indianapolis. With a large and changing menu, you are bound to find your future favorite food stop.
715 Broad Ripple Ave.
You are not a Butler student until you have at least tried Breadstix from Hotbox. You may not like them, but it’s a necessity. It’s a staple of Butler’s late-night eating, with their convenient 24-hour operations and that lovely little thing called delivery.
3 Sisters Cafe
6360 Guilford Ave.
There’s nothing diner, drive-in, or divey about Three Sisters. It’s located just north of the canal in a renovated, quaint house. The atmosphere and the service are great, and their food is some of the best in the entire village. It’s a great stop for both vegetarians and meat eaters.
811 E. Westfield Blvd.
Bazbeaux (pronounced Baz-Bo) is your one-stop shop for good food and family fun. There’s still some debate on the issue, but let’s put an end to the nonsense and say that the Quattro Formaggio is the best pizza in Naptown. Take mom and dad when they come to visit.
