Gray Brothers Cafeteria

American in Indianapolis

Cafeterias are an Indiana tradition, but most have disappeared – except for Gray Brothers. Enter the time-warped dining room, grab a blue tray and behold a corridor of food that seems to stretch the length of a football field. Stack on plates of pan-fried chicken, meatloaf, mac 'n' cheese and sugar cream pie, then fork in with abandon.

It's located in Mooresville, about 18 miles south of downtown Indianapolis en route to Bloomington.
