With Cinco De Mayo coming up, here are 11 places to get your avocado fix here in Indianapolis and try the best guac in town.

Guacamole and Chips from Delicia

This Latin restaurant, located in the South Broad Ripple neighborhood, creates cuisine inspired by the Americas, the Caribbean, and Spain. Delicia’s gluten-free guacamole has an interesting twist made with pistachio but still holds the classic flavor made with avocado, garlic, tomato, lime and onion. This dish is listed at $11.

Guacamole Fresco at Loco Mexican Restuarant & Cantina

Loco has two locations, one in Fall Creek Place and the other in Fountain Square, that feature their delicious, fresh homemade guacamole. Their avocado is hand-crushed with tomato, red onion, cilantro and jalapeños to add a little bit of spice and is priced at $10.

Guacamole and Chips at Cholita

Cholita brings unique street food to the heart of Broad Ripple. Their classic chips and guac dish is priced at $12 and made with avocado, onion, cilantro and tomatoes.

Guacamole At La Margarita 

Just in time for the warmer weather, La Margarita–located in Fountain Square–has plenty of outdoor dining while you indulge in their chips and guac for $8, with avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime. They also partner with Sun King Brewery in both Carmel and downtown Indy, where their classic chips and dip are served.

CHIPS AND Guacamole At Agave & Rye

Just like everything else on their menu, Agave & Rye’s guacamole and chips are freshly made in-house every day. Made with fresh avocado, tomato, onion, lime,  salt and topped with grated cheese, you can enjoy this classic dish for $9.75 in downtown Indianapolis.


With a name on like “Best Guacamole in Town,” Festiva‘s offering has a lot to live up to, but thankfully, it delivers. Loaded with ripe avocados, onion, garlic and lime juice, it also has thinly sliced jicama, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, and fresh cilantro and diced serrano peppers on top. Pro tip: If you’re not a fan of heat, skip the serranoes because they really pack a punch. The dish is listed as “market price” on the menu.


Like everything that Martha Hoover is involved with, the guacamole at Public Greens in Broad Ripple is absolutely delicious. A classic preparation that is served with tortilla chips, the guac is studded with onion and tomato, is vegan and gluten free, and is currently priced at $6.


If variety is your jam, consider splurging on three flavors of guac by ordering the $16 Guacamole Trio at Verde, Flavors of Mexico in Fishers. You’ll get to try spicy pineapple, chicharrón morita, and traditional versions of the dip, and they come with fresh chicharróns (similar to pork rinds) for scooping —  but there are also always tortilla chips on hand, as well.


You may be a fan of Revolucion’s tacos and Mission-style burritos — and the delightful tiki bar out back — but you should definitely also order the guac and chips for $6.95 to enjoy while you’re indulging in the Fountain Square spot’s inventive drinks. Made in-house, it has diced onions and tomatoes and a dash of black pepper.


On Maryland Street in downtown Indy, Nada offers an “O.G. Guacamole” for $14 that is beautifully presented and topped with sliced cucumbers, radishes and fresh cilantro.


Bakersfield on Mass Ave serves up Mexican street fare with flair, along with an array of killer margaritas. Their chips and guacamole are $10 and are the perfect starter for any of their delicious tacos.
