Diesel's Sports Grille

July 7, 2015 - General -

Craving a great sandwich? Visit Diesel's Sports Grille and Pub in Danville, IN on the Courthouse Square. We recently visited for lunch and were not disappointed! They have awesome lunch specials that include a sandwich, side and a drink for $7! You can't beat that and take a look at how big my sandwich was!

Deisel's Sports Grille Caprese Sandwich with Onion Rings

Now I'm not from Hendricks County and as a Mayberry Café and a Bread Basket Café enthusiast, it was very hard for me to branch out and try something different as those two restaurants have amazing food and are on or very close to the square as well. Unfortunately for me, my decision on where to eat when in Danville, just got even harder! Maybe I need to do a progressive meal and have something at all three next time. Diesel's moved right up there to one of my favorites in Hendricks County.

I ordered a Grilled Caprese Sandwich with onion rings. It's house made bacon, roma tomato, fresh basil and provolone cheese on a parmesan Texas toast. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it! So fresh and light but still very filling. When I returned home I thought, I could make this Caprese sandwich and actually attempted to make it but it just wasn't the same. Those onion rings too! Don't forget them, they were huge and perfectly crisp! My friends also ordered the Dagwood (which is Applewood smoked turkey, roast beef, ham, spring mix and cayenne mayo with choice of cheese on a toasted baguette) with the very delicious looking fries and the Taco Salad (Spring mix with pico de gallo, avocado, queso, ground beef and tortillas with ranch dressing) both of these looked fantastic too! I'm told the wings are fantastic too! So much I want to try on their menu, I'm afraid I'll never visit enough times to try it all! I would definitely travel a bit out of my way to stop here for lunch though!

Diesel's is open for lunch and dinner and you can find them at 20 West Main Street in Danville, IN.
