From authentic Mexican cuisine to savory soul food, Indy’s Near Eastside has a lot of delicious dining options to offer, whether you’re eating in or carrying out.

As restaurants continue to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Promise Zone team for the Near Eastside has developed a "support local" campaign allowing patrons and newcomers alike to reap rewards while supporting Near Eastside food and beverage businesses.

To take part in the campaign, customers simply have to post a photo of their meal or beverage to social media and use the hashtag #NearEastEats. This automatically enters you into a virtual raffle to win a gift card to the Near Eastside restaurant of your choice.

Participants in the #NearEastEats raffle can increase their chances to win by repeatedly supporting their favorite Near Eastside food and beverage spots now through November 22, with award winners to be announced on November 23.

Find a full a list of Near Eastside restaurants, bars, breweries and distilleries below. (Note: Each asterisk marks facilities that offer gift cards.)
