Indy's Most Successful Restaurants

Scott Hutcheson noted it at The Hungry Hoosier a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to draw attention to the IBJ article from two weeks ago on Indianapolis' top grossing restaurants. Aside from the two big grossers, St. Elmo's and Cheesecake Factory, I thought it was interesting to see the overall 2005 sales chart. Also, considering that the average check at St. Elmo's must be at least twice (and probably closer to three times) the average check at The Cheesecake Factory, you can get an idea of truly how many people that already cavernous restaurant serves.

Here's the chart (yes, copied from the IBJ but credited to their source, the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission.)
