Though not exactly "Roadfood", St Elmo's Steakhouse is an Indy Icon. So if you've never been there, it's worth checking it out if for nothing else but their Fire Breathing Shrimp Cocktail and a beer.
As Iconic Steakhouse's go, it's up there with Burn's in Tampa, (Almost). St. Elmo`s Shrimp Cocktail Serves
