The Tie Dye Grill 1311 N. Shadeland Ave.

Pat and I had lunch here a few years back but it was never properly reviewed. I did mention it in a post with some other places but nothing specific to the Tie Dye. I remember that I ate a Reuben sandwich and was not overwhelmed. That isn’t all that unusual for a joint that only sells Corned Beef as an option. This place has a very faithful following, and that prompted us to go back.

They offer a large menu with lots of cute counter-culture names for the food items that mimic the “psychedelic 60’s”.

According to the reviews the burgers are the “bomb”. Pardon the current vernacular but I haven’t used “outta’ sight” in more than 40 years. They use a 10 ounce burger and grill it to order,so if you order it medium rare that is what you get. I ordered a Chong’s chilli cheese burger for $8.95.

The burger is huge as is the bun. I ordered it medium rare and that is what I got. This sucker is definitely a knife and fork sandwich. The burger itself was excellent and coupled with a nicely toasted bun made for a wonderful sandwich. The chili covering it was a bit average;too much cumin for my liking. I would order a burger again but it would be the “Keep on Truckin” burger. Just a burger with a bun and garden for $7.95

This is a really squared away place,clean,organized and the service is great. I think it would be a good choice for lunch or dinner. They also have some very good music in the background;a nice selection of 60’s and 70’s music, not too loud either. So if you are an old hippie or a young hippie wanna be you have your old little “Woodstock” to visit for a bite.

  1. I love a good mushroom Swiss burger now and again. I don’t think my tummy can handle chili AND a burger, but I’m sure it’d make for a tasty bite!

    • I couldn’t finish it all I had to take half of it home. A 10 ounce burger is BIG.

  2. They should call it the “fallout” burger or “collateral damage.” It looks like the ingredients just go everywhere. Knife and fork indeed! No FF, OR, tots?

    • Nope. All of their sides are ala carte and I thought I would be lucky just to finish the burger. And I couldn’t. I needed a go box.
