Bagger Dave’s Burger Tavern now open in Carmel
By Karen Kennedy
Hamilton County residents will have a new place to eat, drink and hang out when Bagger Dave’s Burger Tavern opens its doors at 2740 E. 146th Street with a grand opening celebration at 11 a.m. May 11.
The restaurant will be quite large, with 200 seats in 4,700 square feet. The décor will feature historical artwork from Westfield and the surrounding area and Bagger Dave’s signature electric train running through the main dining room and bar.
The restaurant will employ around 80 people.
Founded in 2008, Bagger Dave’s is a concept of Diversified Restaurant Holdings and is based in Southfield, Mich. There are currently six in Indiana, with a another store planned for Fishers in the near future.
The restaurant’s focus is on fresh, never frozen, meats. That includes burgers, prime rib and ground turkey.
The burgers are offered with more than 30 toppings to customize your choice and served with fresh-cut fries. Because of the wide variety of choices, there are order sheets on the table for you to mark your customized burger.
For those who don’t care for ground beef, there are all-natural chicken and vegetarian black bean burgers as well. Interesting sides include sweet potato chips and Cajun and sea salt tortilla chips. Bagger Dave’s is also known for hand-dipped milkshakes and ice cream floats.
“We are excited to bring our new prime rib recipe, fresh ingredients, and winning customer service to Westfield, Carmel and the people of Indiana,” said Michael Ansley, president and CEO of Bagger Dave’s.
The average price is $6-8 for a burger. There are several items on the kids menu for $4.50 and a gluten-free menu is offered as well.
