A note on the methodology: This is a list of the best places to eat in Indiana according to Yelp based on reviews written by Hoosiers (people who have a city in Indiana listed as their primary location on their Yelp profile).

Jamaican Reggae Grill | Carmel, IN
“My favorite restaurant in all of Carmel! If you are ever lucky enough to dine on a day when they have ribs available...do not even bother thinking of ordering something else! Nothing tops the ribs. Ribs aren't easy to get right, and at JRG they are moist, falling off the bone and flavorful.” -Mariam H., Indianapolis, IN

Dhaba Indy | Noblesville, IN
“This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've ever been to. The staff is very friendly and the food is exquisite. They have the best Chicken Tika Masala I have ever eaten. If you haven't tried this place, and you are a fan of Indian food, don't wait any longer. We will certainly be back!” -Travis G., New Castle, IN

Burritos & Beer | Fishers, IN
“This place is a great unknown spot for some tremendous Mexican food. Their burritos are legit! I recommend the carnitas. I love how they put the burrito on the grill after making it to give it a little bit of crispy flavor and texture to the tortilla…Highly recommend trying it!” -Craig M., Fishers, IN

Caplinger's Fresh Catch & Cuts | Noblesville, IN
"...It was nothing short of fantastic...The food was so fresh, everything was cooked perfectly, and nothing was over-battered. I had the Blue Crab Melt, and I'm not sure I'll ever try anything else- it was that good. We will definitely be making this a regular spot on our dining out list!” -Jenni G., Noblesville, IN

OMONI Fresh Fast Korean Grill | Carmel, IN
“Honest to goodness one of the best meals I've had in weeks...Imagine the best fried rice you've ever had but custom ordered to your liking. Honestly the most impressive hosts and dining experience I've had in Carmel and maybe in all my foodie adventures. Please do yourself a favor and don't miss out on this diamond. This will be a regular stop for my family.” -Robby G., Indianapolis, IN
