Who wouldn’t salivate at the opportunity to indulge in a week of delicious tenderloins being offered throughout central Indiana (aka the finest tenderloins anywhere)…for $5.00?

Indy Tenderloin Week is a week-long celebration of the Hoosier beloved Tenderloin. NUVO partnered with local restaurants and chefs to offer customer’s a budget-friendly deal all over the city while supporting a good cause. And at $5.00, you’ll have plenty of cash left for a side and a beer (or three).

Indy Tenderloin Week is also a fundraiser for Second Helpings. 20% of restaurant registration fees and sponsorships are donated directly to Second Helpings.



Try somewhere new. Eat something awesome. Tell your friends about it and come back with them later.


Some restaurants will offer dine-in only options for Indy Tenderloin Week. Some may offer carryout or delivery only. They have their reasons, and they are very good ones. Just go with it.


Expect that restaurants will be busy. If a place runs out, take it like a champ. Go back the next day, go earlier, order your tenderloin, and thank them for working hard to do this for you.


People and restaurants have been requesting a Tenderloin Week since Burger Week took over the city. So don’t be surprised if restaurants have waits. In fact, be pleasantly surprised if they don’t.


Really though, you’re getting a deal. So please tip at least 20%. The people who are serving you are working very hard during Indy Tenderloin Week. And they are awesome.


Pick up some sides and a pint! You’ll enjoy yourself more, and you’ll be helping out the restaurants. Win/win!


And, post pictures of your beautiful self smashing that glorious tenderloin to Instagram using the hashtag #IndyTenderloinWeek.
