>>Located downtown, just northwest of Monument Circle, is one of Indianapolis’ hidden gems, Punch Burger. While this restaurant has been in existence for two years, it may not be on your radar. The place specializes in creatively crafted burgers, offering a more upscale fast food experience. Red and white designs cover the walls and floor, providing a well-lit and clean area in which to eat your own custom burger. While you have the option to build your burger from a wide array of toppings, their specialty burgers are no slouches. The Thai Burger, made with local fresh beef, just like all of their burgers and topped with peanut butter, Asian slaw, onions and sweet chili sauce is a perfect example of the out-of-the-box deliciousness that Punch Burger provides. The service was fantastic. The host who brought me my burger offered friendly conversation and a smile. The owner is in the process of opening up a location in Carmel.
