If you’re craving a juicy, mouth-watering steak, or if you fancy quenching your thirst with a flavored moonshine, there’s a brand new restaurant in town you’ll want to check out. Outlaws Steak & Spirits just opened in February with a tasty menu that will keep you coming back again and again to try something new.
“Obviously people gravitate to our steak menu, which is expanding,” says owner Blake Lilly. “Now we serve Tenderloin, Rib Eye, Tenderloin Medallions and New York Striploin, but in the future we will also have Kebabs and Sirloin Steak.”
The steaks aren’t the only draw, however. People also love burger options such as the Original Outlaw Burger, their signature half pound burger patty served on a pretzel bun with jalapeño cream cheese, lettuce, tomato and garlic. red onion, stuffed with their homemade cheese filling. Another fan favorite is the Bandit Burger Melt, a delicious half-pound burger patty served on sourdough bread, topped with havarti, gouda, cheddar, caramelized onions and bacon, with sriracha mayonnaise served as a side dish. For those who don’t like steak or burgers, they also serve pork chops, Atlantic salmon, and grilled chicken.
Don’t let the name of the restaurant fool you. They also serve delicious Southwestern spring rolls, which consist of a colorful combination of blackened chicken, black beans, corn, jalapeño jack cheese, red peppers, and spinach. They are wrapped in wontons and fried with a choice of salsa verde or cheese sauce.
“These spring rolls are a big draw,” Lilly says.
They also serve a variety of soups and salads, sandwiches, sides, pastas, wings and desserts – all homemade. As for drinks, they specialize in moonshine.
“Our signature drinks contain moonshine,” says Lilly. “They taste so good.”
For example, their signature Bloody Mary is made with Dill Pickle Moonshine, Purple Rain is made with Blackberry Moonshine, Peach Bliss is made with Peach Moonshine, and Baked Apple Pie and Apple Pie Mule are both made with apple pie moonshine.
Lilly, who previously worked as an entrepreneur in Wisconsin and Minnesota, has a family that previously worked in the food industry. When COVID-19 hit, it was a devastating blow to many restaurants across the country. Lilly had a hunch, however, that after COVID, the public would be eager to start returning to restaurants again after being confined to home cooking and takeout for the better part of two years. He decided to pursue a lifelong passion and open his own restaurant. He started mixing different concepts and landed on a catchy name – Outlaws Steak & Spirits. Their slogan is “No rules – just rights”, as they pride themselves on serving quality products in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. Although this is his first restaurant, he plans to open a few more restaurants in the future.
Despite restaurant ownership being a tough business, especially right now with widespread labor shortages, Lilly is glad she chose to open Outlaws Steak & Spirits because nothing appeals to her. more than seeing people with smiles on their faces and knowing that he helped put them there.
“It’s good to see people interacting and being happy,” he says. “I know there’s a lot of negativity out there, but I believe there are a lot of positive people out there and I love seeing them. That’s my favorite thing about being. restaurant owner: people.
He chose to open in his Noblesville store because he was attracted to the clean neighborhood which offered many quality stores. The plan is to schedule a grand opening this month.
