Ok, it's only two-miles from the Speedway, in Speedway, IN.  That is why this place has been a favorite for racers for years. Ask driver/spotter Mike Herman Jr or Mike Paris about Union Jack...two of the place's biggest fans.  It's tradition, good food, good Chicago style pizzas.   Cold beers also highlight this traditional indy stop.

St. Elmo's
St. Elmo's is an Indiana tradition. It's not cheap, but it is real good and something you must do at least once when you are in Indy. This upscale place is Indiana's oldest steakhouse.

The first time I went there was when I was covering Indy cars for TNN and it was for Chip Gannassi's birthday. Jimmy Vassar and Alex Zanardi were his drivers back then I believe. Since then, I have gone to Elmo's every year.

The steak is what they are known most for, but also try their legendary Shrimp Cocktail. The sauce is made with real good horseradish, and lots of it!!

The Reuben, the Roast Beef, the Pastrami, are all big on the yum scale.
