Pizza

Walk up to this IU favorite and you'll feel like Goldliocks about to be served by a family of bears -- this popular pizza dive is the spitting image of a rustic cabin in the forest. Covered in wood paneling and graffiti on the inside, Mother Bear's has been attracting hoards of college students since the early '70s with its Chicago-style pies. They have a fluffier consistency than the brick-heavy pies from Illinois, though, and feature tasty topping combos, like The Divine Swine with pepperoni, sausage, Hoosier ham, and smoked bacon. Like a quality pizza place should, it also has a solid beer lineup with regional favorites like Bell's and Indiana's own 3 Floyds.
