This Joint is…
…one of the best delis you’ll ever find, “Shapiro’s Deli” in Carmel, Indiana. Sometimes a city can be defined by the “sum of its parts”, and thanks to Shapiro’s Deli , the city of “Carmel” doesn’t have anything to worry about! Carmel is located just northwest of Indianapolis. When you visit “Indy”, you hear more about its sports teams, and special events, than you hear about the cuisine. But in the case of Shapiro’s Deli , you’ll want to hear more, and have the opportunity to experience it’s delicious offerings.
My wife especially likes their Corned Beef and Roast Beef on rye sandwiches. She also enjoys their desserts! Her favorite is the Black Forrest Cake. As for me, I can’t wait to get my hands around their plentiful Pastrami on a toasted onion role, or their Chicken Salad on a croissant . My dessert of choice is their Carrot Cake / Cheese Cake Combo……it makes me hungry just thinking about it! And the people who work there are really nice, and the service just as nice; it’s definitely a culinary find!

After you "check out the joint"... let us know what you think!

[Update...Shapiro's is no longer in Carmel, Indiana. But they are thriving in Indianapolis!]
