Not bad but very heavy. If you like down home food then you have found your home. The macaroni and cheese is the best I have ever eaten.

The food was the best. Especially after you have spent the day at the Indianapolis Zoo. I would not waste my money on the overpriced food at the zoo. Just down the street a couple blocks from the zoo. The place has only about 6 tables it is very small and cozy. Can't wait to go back again. Great value... More

I thought this restaurant was a Mexican restaurant (Degustos) but it's actually DeeGusto's! Anyway, although the dining area is small, I enjoyed my experience and the food was delicious. This place is by the Indianapolis Zoo, give it a try if you're into home-cooked, comfort food. The hours are irregular (I think) so check it out before you go.

The small bright gold building has only 5-6 tables for sit down service. Must say we had no problem getting a table at 3PM! The food and service were genuine Southern! Just what we were looking for! Deliciously seasoned greens, home style potatoes, fried pork chops, cornbread, Mac n cheese, and to die for sweet, warm, peach cobbler. Super friendly... More

I can't say enough about this place. The best food and service ever. Diane, Lizzie, Lucy and Gail make you feel like you are in your ma'am's dining room. You won't be disappointed if you visit. I eat here at least once per week but I have gone three times in one week.

I am vegetarian, so there was not much for me. My friend and I arrived very close to closing but were greeted warmly and ordered food to go, which I took home to my wife. Chicken wings, greens and macaroni and cheese. She pronounced it very flavorful with the chicken being very meaty, with a crisp and flavorful breading and... More

The down-home cooking at this little hole in the wall restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Hidden away in a tiny, unassuming building next to a Speedway gas station, it is easy to miss. I had driven by for decades without realizing it was there. Thanks to a Groupon that I purchased mainly for the convenience of its location to the... More

This is by far the best soul food restaurant in Indianapolis! The service was GREAT and that is what is important to me. The food is OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
