We picked up their BBQ and sides for a family reunion. The whole gang loved it! Great quality 'cue and the sides (mac & cheese and beans) were tasty too. Good prices too.

I went to this restaurant twice in June. One trip the service was great and the other was average for most places. The food was pretty decent both times. My recommendation to order is the babyback ribs.

The north side Squealers is likely one of the best BBq places in Indy. I've not eaten at the Mooresville location, which I believe is the original. This is primarily wet bbq. If you are a dry rub bbq person, this might not be the best for you. The secret is in the sauce, which really is very, very good.... More

Disappointed. Was looking for a good BBQ joint in Indy after returning from a trip to Texas. Squeelers apparently has won numerous awards for the BBQ but my dish was a let down. The beef brisket was extremely dry. The pulled pork wasn't as dry and if smothered with sauce was good. I feel both meats lacked a good smokey... More

Both my wife and I had ribs. They arrived very quickly and came with a choice of sides. The meat was tender and came away from the bone easily. Maybe a tad over cooked but not bad. Give them a try if you are in the area.

When we go to Traders Point to see a movie, we always come to Squealers to eat. We found this restaurant last summer when we moved here. Amazing smoked BBQ at a reasonable price. We also enjoy the onion rings and fried pickles. I tried Jan's Spud last time I was there; huge baked potato - loaded and then a... More

If you love barbecue, then look no further. Whether your from Indi ,or passing through like myself, then you have to stop by. Great hospitality, and even better barbecue. Big menu, and great prices, for being an award winning barbecue joint. Check it out the next time you appetite. I promise you won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for some good BBQ in Indianapolis then this is the place to go. I went on recommendations from fellow Trip Advisor posts and it was fantastic. If I ever get to this area again, it will be on my short lists of places to eat.

We were visiting cousins who live near Squealers, and they chose to go to dinner here. After a disappointing barbecue dinner on Hilton Head Island, this was a treat. We shared an order of fried string onions which were accompanied by a very good sauce. I ordered the half smoked chicken dish with sides of sweet potato, green beans and... More
