NFL legend Don Shula is on a mission to surpass his former greatness. This time, his goal is not to dominate the gridiron or coach his team to victory; instead, he’s doing all his dominating in the kitchen. He knows that the key to success is putting together a winning team, and Don has done just that with Shula’s Steakhouse in Indianapolis. Don and his son, Dave, share a passion outside of football: excellence in dining. They fulfill their passion by serving nothing but the best. Everybody knows that Indianapolis, home of the Indianapolis Colts, is an NFL town, so it’s only fitting that this great Indianapolis restaurant is owned by an NFL legend.
Shula’s Steakhouse in Indianapolis is located in the Westin Indianapolis Hotel. It’s in walking distance from lots of famous Indianapolis attractions, like the Circle Centre Mall, Monument Circle, and Conseco Fieldhouse. If you’re tired and hungry from walking around downtown Indianapolis, a stop at Shula’s is the right thing to do.
The menu features a classic fare of appetizers and soups, along with salads. All of these choices are standard for an upscale eatery such as this, but it’s the steak that gets all of the attention. Shula’s is primarily a steakhouse, and there’s only one way to obtain the kind of beef needed to meet Don’s demand for quality. His father partnered with the Graham family in Miami and opened up the first Shula’s Steakhouse. The Graham family are proud breeders of Angus cattle; therefore, Shula’s serves only Premium Black Angus Beef. The restaurant’s staff custom cuts its own beef and ages it to perfection. When this top-notch steak arrives at your table, you know it’s going to be good.
If you’re brawny enough to down a 48 oz. porterhouse, then you’ll be added to Shula’s list of exclusive clientele: The 48 oz. Club. These formidable men and women have proven their worth at the dinner table. But don’t worry; if you prefer taste over quantity or don’t have a bottomless pit for a stomach, Shula’s will be more than happy to cater to your needs as well. The prime rib and filet mignon are prominent winners here, and you can be sure that Shula’s Steakhouse knows how to prepare them. Tack on an order of grilled asparagus, sauteed mushrooms, or lobster mashed potatoes, and both your taste buds and your stomach are sure to be satisfied.
Make no mistake, Shula’s Steakhouse is a restaurant for winners. But don’t worry: Don makes sure the customer always comes out on top. For more information on Shula’s Steakhouse in Indianapolis, please visit the restaurant’s homepage.
