Who has been to Capriotti’s yet? If not – get over there now! I was super pumped when Capriotti’s reached out to partner up with me to cover their grand opening! Let’s get into it..
Location – Capriotti’s Indianapolis
This is the first EVER Indiana Capriotti’s location! They are on the north side, in the Castleton area, on 82nd street. If you are familar with the TJ Maxx center, they are in that general area. The main Capriotti’s website says the town is Castleton… but it’s definitely Indianapolis. Parking for Capriottis is shared with a few other restaurants so you may need to walk a little. I asked Ryan (owner), why he chose to open a Capriotti’s and he said it’s because he loves the food!

Capriottis originated on the East Coast, in Delaware. The Capriotti name is a family name. Phillip Capriotti was the grand father and his love for cooking was the inspiration. Taken from the Capriotti’s website: “They wanted to create a sandwich for “real turkey lovers,” so they started roasting whole fresh turkeys overnight. This concept set them apart from their competition and still does.”
I was most interested in trying the famous “Bobbie” sandwich. For the grand opening, they were giving away free Bobbie sandwiches for a year to the first 100 people in line! It’s basically thanksgiving on a sandwich – mayo, turkey, cranberry sauce and stuffing. I ordered a medium and had to take my second half to go! It was delicious and even better later! I’m no longer a vegetarian but for all my veggie followers out there – they offer veggie options of their sandwiches! Veggie turkey, veggie chicken and veggie garden patties. It’s awesome to provide an alternative when most other stores offer just the “veggie sandwich”. They also have salads. Shout out to Eric, the salad bar guy, who made a special appearance on my Instagram and snap chats from my time there. They have a kids menu and even cater.
Capriotti’s has a nice sit down area but also offers their food to-go. The build out is beautiful. I enjoyed the lighting fixtures as well. The place was rocking, as 99.5 WZPL was hosting the grand opening as well. It was wonderful to see a familiar face – Zakk from 99.5!
Overall, My favorite part was how fresh the food was. Ever since Penn Station closed downtown, I’ve been looking for another hot sandwich place besides Subway. Capriotti’s exceeded my expectations with the delicious food. I now have a go-to whenever I stop up by that TJ Maxx on the weekends.
Special thanks to Capriottis for having me. This is a sponsored post.All opinions are my own.
