Ritter’s Frozen Custard

351 N Morton St
Franklin, 46131
Reviews:
Oh how I miss Ritters! When I lived a few blocks from there I would walk there almost every Wednesday evening in warm months to enjoy one of the flavors of the day. It was great, I could take my dog with me and enjoy my frozen custard as I sat at one of their many outdoor tables.
This is the original Ritters. It is a wonderful place to get good frozen custard. Their glaciers are great. Thick as can be. A wonderful stop on a hot summer day. A bit pricey, but oh so good.
When I want dessert, Ritter's is typically my top choice. And when I eat at Ritter's, I like to visit the original here in Franklin. Their frozen custard is delicious and they have some great flavors. I doesn't get much better than this.

Enzo Pizza

1700 N Morton St
Franklin, 46131
Reviews:
Enzo Pizza, a cultural hotspot among Franklin locals, livens-up the city with a vivacious environment and dishes bursting with authentic flavors of Italia! FOOD: Pasta, phenomenal! To my knowledge, the pasta is made on-site and ALWAYS cooked al dente. In addition, those with Celiac's need not fret; Mr. Enzo will gladly hook you up with gluten-free pasta. My favorite dish: Mussels fra Diavolo, always renders tender and flavorful--as opposed to the rubberiness easily attained from overcooking. On the pizza-side, the crust is the most delicate I've yet to experience. It's like a hybrid between New York-style pizza dough and a sweet pastry crust. The aroma and taste of the crust alone warrants getting a second pizza "for-the-road". Nevertheless, the rest of the pizza pie is just as wonderful with an abundant supply of your traditional toppings and a sauce which I seriously could enjoy by itself. For dessert--if you've somehow conquered the pains of your belly bursting with fullness--I always have to get the cannoli with an Italian Espresso. Tears nearly jerk from my eyes every time I'm forced to indulge in a delicious work of art. SERVICE: The staff is extremely polite & quite attentive; they keep Enzo Pizza in, literally, ship-shape. They seem to remember everyone who comes-in and enjoy getting to know their customers. ATMOSPHERE Fresh and inviting. In addition to the amazing staff and food, the modern Italian music brings with it the air of a contemporary Mediterranean eatery. Dine like a local at Enzo!
They have so much more than just pizza. Everything is fresh and delicious. I love this place. Decent prices and the service is great
First time in. Seems clean and nice. Very much like an improved Sbarro. I had a giant slice of the Calzone. It was very good. The marinara sauce was very good. Very mellow, with good flavor and not a lot of that odd "tang" that is often in marinaras. Price was good too.

Waffle House

Reviews:
Although it's just a greasy spoon and destination for drunks or college kids suffering from hangovers, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for the good ol' "awful" house. The food is out in minutes, it's hot and greasy, and reminds you of your chain smoking grandma's kitchen. Oh and did I mention it's open 24 hours? When all your friends abandon you, who is there for you? Waffle House. When it's 4am and you can't fall back asleep who do you go to? Waffle House. When you need to pull an all nighter and study with unlimited coffee who calls your name? Waffle House. It has a siren call for all of us. It has our back.
Greasier than an oil spill. Breakfast there is incredibly shitty, but its a good place to hang with friends while plastered.
I have to admit, I was quite skeptical, especially when our 4 year old wanted to sit up to the bar. But in the end, we left satisfied. We enjoyed watching our food be prepared too. My 14 year old had the PB waffle and it was awesome. I had the fiesta omelette (two thumbs up), my husband had the bacon, egg, text toast thing and my sons had waffles (one chocolate). We all really enjoyed our dinner. Glad we stopped.

Absolutely amazing. Pizza is great and pasta is so good. The option to make your own pasta combinations give you a huge selection of flavor.
Hungry?? Check out Richards brick Oven pizza. Made to order. Relaxing and fun atmosphere. Appetizers are the best. Large beer and wine selection!
Ordered a custom pizza and it was baked to perfection. Loved the thin crust and the toppings were fresh. The service was prompt and the waiter gave us good advice on the cheese and sauce options.

Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant

Reviews:
Great food and ok service. The food more than made up for the fact that no one waited on us for more than 15 min. The place wasn't that busy. Oh well right , you get what you pay for . The food was well priced and delicious!
Great prices for lunch get even better when you join their frequent guest card/club. GREAT margaritas and good food. Currently our favorite Mexican restaurant in Indy.
Definitely one of the BEST authentic Mexican restaurants I've ever been to! The servers are very good and the food is awesome!!

Ann’s Restaurant

77 W Monroe St
Franklin, 46131
Reviews:
On the hunt for something new I took to Yelp to find a place. Found some good reviews on Ann's so I gave it a try. Your first step in you can tell that you are in a small local diner. In a nice friendly way not the you're not from around here way which was awesome! A nice friendly hello greeting and a go ahead and seat yourself and off to a great start. I ordered the western with all the veggies added or the veggie with ham added and a side of american fries (fried sliced potatoes) The waitress said no problem, I'll figure out which way is cheaper and go that route. Nice! Coffee was standard drip, nothing special and the atmosphere was plain but nice. Here's the lowdown on the food. If you are into greasy satisfying breakfast that will stick with you the whole day this is your place. They put the emphasis on the meat and cheese in the omelet. It was rich and heavy. I was looking for a little meat with my veggies and ended up with a ton of meat and cheese with the veggies. I'm not complaining but I have to admit I probably didn't have to eat anything else for the day! Now when I come back I will ask for it to be a little different and I fully expect they will swing that with a smile. Overall a very good experience!
I've always loved having breakfast or lunch at Ann's and their new remodel is absolutely great! I only wish they would actually open for dinner too!
DISCLAIMER: I went to this establishment last Saturday after my apartment flooded due to a burst frozen pipe at 3 am. I was cranky, depressed and in desperate need of breakfast. After a few days, I've decided to construct a review to give you a much clearer perspective. Service was awful.... Granted, there was a busy crowd and no empty tables, but to me, that seems good enough reason to pick up the pace and try to serve everyone. My roommate and I were greeted once by our server, (who also seemed judgmental at our appearance in sweats and no makeup), who then took our order immediately (yep-minimal time to browse), and disappeared for 45 minutes. Yep. I timed it. Our food came with a totally different server, a younger, more naive girl-the type you would dictate a menial job to, but nevertheless I got my food. It was on the blander side, but after my evening/early morning dealing with a carpet swamp, I just dealt with it. Another 20 minutes goes by when a DIFFERENT server shows up asking if we need more coffee. We didn't, but wanted the check, and to-go boxes ASAP because we couldn't wait to get out of there. Overall- after reflecting on this experience, I would suggest a different establishment, such as Don and Dona's, The Indigo Duck or Benjamin's Cafe if you want a local, support small, downtown breakfast.

Papa Murphy’s

Reviews:
Good pizza. I have been holding out for years for some unknown reason in trying Papa Murphys pizza. I finally went there a few weeks ago. I am very impressed with their pizza. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They didn't skimp on the ingredients and prepared some really great pizzas. I was also impressed how they baked up quickly and easily when we got them home. All in all, it was a great culinary experience. I would definitely go again to this location. I can only hope that any other location around me will be just as good. I have always found that chain restaurant organizations are only as decent and consistent in prime quality - based solely on the management.

Jefferson Street Pub

90 E Jefferson St
Franklin, 46131
Reviews:
Definitely a college town bar. You'll mostly find all the college kids here late hours during the weekends and sometimes it can get very packed to the point where you can barely move. Their food is amazing here for bar food. They have great dinner options and great drunk food as well to soak up the alcohol! They are always friendly and fast! I love it here!
When I walked in to the pub I was very surprised and my expectations went up really high. The potential to have a wonderful time is all here. The bar is really old school and ornate. The brick walls and wood work make you feel like you went back to a secrete bar from 1920's. I'm not a beer snob by any means but there just wasn't much selection here. Now the food has been good everytime I tried some. The tenderloin was good as well as the burger I ate on another visit. My friend said he enjoyed his food too and the nachos we shared were very well dressed. My main reason for not enjoying the bar were not because of the typical things bars get picked apart over. I honestly just couldn't get into a good conversation with the staff or other patrons. One old man I was getting a decent conversation started with was only getting take out so it was short lived. It may be the area or just the people here but I like going to a bar and feeling welcome. The staff was polite and courteous, just not what I'm use to. I could just be going on off days. We shall see.
We were in Franklin for an Association for Gravestone Studies Conference and THIS is the Best Bar in Franklin. We went two nights and the first night there were three of us, we laughed we had Bloody Marys and they actually drove us home! Second night there were 8 or 9 or us and $3.75 Long Island Ice Teas.... and I realized want a beautiful woman made the drinks and how happy I was to be there, in fact taht life was really good. It was like college at 50.
