Hi all. I find myself very often at GenCon in need of food, but with little time between events to go get some.
So can we build a list of places that deliver to the ICC and surrounding hotels?
I know Hotbox, the vaguely pornographic and/or 420 sounding pizza place delivers. Who else?
Ninja edit: and maybe I solved the entire problem, as I neglected to think about OrderUp. There are 60 restaurants listed that OrderUp can deliver to the ICC. https://orderup.com/some/indianapolis/delivery/featured
But, anyone know of restaurants that deliver themselves? Or what ones from OrderUp are worth getting delivered?
Aside from the pizza places, I know that there's a Jimmy John's that serves the downtown area. Other than that, you might ask the concierge at the hotel where you're staying.
Okay, so this is quickly turning into a brotherbock info dump list, but that's cool :)
Grubhub lists six restaurants that deliver to the ICC...
Sultana Cafe and Hookah Bar
Red Lion Grog House
On The Border
Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen
Anyone have any experience with them?
In the past, I thought ICC had a "no outside food" policy. It's not like they go searching through bags, but a delivery guy wandering the halls with a pizza might be frowned upon. I know this was discussed in the old forums (every year, it seemed).
Indy All Night is a delivery only restaurant. Hours from evening til late night and they have an app. The food is good too. Just not sure if they'd deliver to the ICC itself, I know they do the hotels though.
I'll be in the Union Station, so I don't particularly care about ICC policies :) Many other games are in hotels and not in the ICC, and if a place delivers to the ICC, I doubt they would not deliver to connected hotels. So for brevity's sake, I'd like to keep this to a list of suggestions.
Will check out Indy All Night, sounds like a good option.
I would say this, to skirt the NO OUTSIDE DELIVERIES policy at ICC, just arrange to meet the delivery person just outside the ICC. You can bring food into the ICC, that is a certainty. I try to eat healthy...most of the time...and the options at ICC are...pathetic to say the least. I'm a bit sad California Pizza Kitchen has closed as it was so close and you had some not-so-terrible options.
As for your list, Doordash also serves the downtown area. That will get you places like:
I hadn't thought of Doordash, between that and OrderUp there are a ton of options. Awesome.
Also, I would also note that it is possible that some restaurants may not do delivery through a service or themselves during Gen Con even if they do it usually. It is something that happens if they are going to be crazy busy IN the restaurant as they want to focus on that and not to go orders. I'm not saying that it will happen that way, but also something to keep in mind.
Amazon Prime Now is your friend. They'll deliver a variety of groceries to your hotel room.

A bag of grapes and some yogurts could hold me for an afternoon. Gonna look into that.
