Working Man's is very informal dining with dynamite food. The burgers are really good, large portions with great prices.

If you don't think this isn't the best burger in America, please provide the name and location of a better place. I travel throughout the country and always check out the best dives and diners. For burgers, this is the best, period. The large schooners of ice cold draft beer is the perfect complement. As for the service, it is always reasonable and pleasant. When they are busy it can be a little slow, but so what? Enjoy the diner/dive atmosphere and be glad you're getting the best burger in town.

This is a very casual place, but the burgers are amazing. Very affordable-around 5-6 bucks a meal. The only reason that I didn't give 5 stars is because they only take cash.

This place had great burgers and good drink specials. Go here for lunch or some beers with friends.

Nothing fancy about this one, just laid back fun.

The service is what's lacking here. Serving staff has been surly and unfriendly in the past. As if they're doing you a favor to wait on you.

Otherwise, good food and a mediocre juke box, conveniently located for after work functions.

The burgers and onion rings are the best I've ever had. Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday are the best days to go for lunch, since it's not as crowded. They only take cash, so plan ahead. Absolutely amazing!

Anyone who voted for a place other than "the Friend" hasn't been there. The place is always packed for lunch even though its in the middle of a run-down neighborhood and there is hardly any parking. The place isn't fancy, but its clean, and everyone, whether in hardhats or suits, are all there for the same thing -- to get stuffed on the best burgers, fries and onion rings around. Don't know much about the rest of the menu because after 40 visits I still crave the doublecheese. The only question is fries or rings and soda or a cold beer.

If you haven't been to "The Friend," you don't really know what a hamburger is. If you have been there, and you think that Hardee's or Steak n Shake is better, you are an idiot. They also probably have the best pork tenderloin sandwich in the city, onion rings, etc. And you can get a beer in a glass the size of a fishbowl! Some might take issue with the accomodations, but they don't really belong. You will know quality when you taste it, not by the concrete floor under your feet.

This place is a famous dive in Indianapolis--if you work downtown or live in the neighborhood. It's in a working class neighborhood, yet the after work clientele can include legislators, lawyers, and laborers!

Working Man's Friend has amazing hamburgers, and DON'T miss out on the onion rings, or you'll be sorry. Everything they serve is generous in portion size, and you won't leave hungry!

One of Indy's better kept secrets, don't go through life without making a stop in to the Working Man's Friend!!!

I have lived in the same neighborhood with this place all my life..never went there to eat. I finally went last summer..it was well worth the wait! For less than $6 I got a might tasty burger, nummy fries and a drink. This burger wasn't no rinky-dink fast food burger..it was good sized. My only and I mean ONLY complaint is that there is no free refills on drinks..I drink alot when I eat..that can be a problem. Remeber that it is a bar, you can't take kids in here. If you ever come to Indy come here. It is close to downtown and well worth the trip.

Every day at lunchtime, suits, scrubs and workingmen sit side by side in this wide-open room to get their mitts on an unforgettably juicy double cheeseburger. The limited menu has other items--like chili--and there's a…
