Great Food From Scratch

There’s nothing quite like a home cooked meal. Unfortunately, deciding where to eat can often come down to a choice between a nice dine-out experience or the unmatched comfort of classic dishes made from scratch.

When you eat at MCL – you get both! For over 70 years, we’ve perfected our family’s recipes to bring Indianapolis diners a menu of quintessential Midwestern cuisine – AKA comfort food favorites. 

From mouth-watering chicken & noodles to hand-breaded shrimp and creamy macaroni & cheese, every dish is made in-house in our scratch kitchens and served cafeteria style. On the bakery side, our kitchens are bustling at 5 a.m. every day so you get your pick of the freshest goodies, including our famous flaky pie crust.

The result is tastier, more nourishing dishes that will fill your heart and your stomach bite after bite.
