One of the better tenderloins here in Indy. Several in our group had their brisket an we're not impressed . Dry an not real tender . Sides were just ok except for onion straws which were excellent . If you want brisket , go to City Barbeque in Carmel. . Outstanding ! I believe that Squealers is now closed due... More

Lunch there today was a big disappointment. Chicken bbq sandwich mediocre at best. It was lukewarm on a generic white bun, little sauce, potato chip crumbs, two pickle pieces. The location in Mooresville is better as I remember. The air reaked of grease and my clothes smelled terrible as a result and my skin feels greasy and smells bad. Same... More

I decided to try Squealers based on the high reviews, but I found it to be only average. Since the name is Squealers, I decided I better try the pulled pork. They had a lunch special that was a pulled pork sandwich with some chips, so the price was reasonable. The pork was pretty good, but it didn't knock my... More

I like to stop in at Squealers on a week night, sit at the bar, have a beer or two and the rib tip dinner. I like the meat from the tips and this is one of the few BBQ joints that has them every night

I really enjoyed the baby back ribs. The sauce variety was delicious. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Even took my joking around well.

My husband and I came in for lunch and shared the full rack of ribs. They were Awesome. The little biscuits were Amazing and the beans and potatoe salad was great!! Service was wonderful. I read the other reviews and they sounded pretty bitter. Our experience was GREAT...all the way around.

My husband and I have been a fan of Squealers for years. Last night I am hoping was an off night. The pork simply did not have the smoke taste and was cold when we finally recieved our meal. Every thing else was warm but we waited for 25 minutes. Hoping the business is not changing.

My friend and I went there before 7pm this evening. We have been there many times before and enjoyed it. This experience was terrible. My friend ordered a drink from the bar and it was not only not what she ordered, but a watered down version of vodka and a cherry. We ordered an appetizer which never came until our... More

Someone from my hotel suggested I check out Squealers. I assumed it would be over my budget, but it turned out to be extremely affordable. The service was prompt and the food brought out in under 10 minutes. The food was hands down some of the best barbecue I have ever had the pleasure of eating. The brisket is a... More

Some of the best brisket this side of Kansas City. The sides are delicious-- they put Texas BBQ sides to shame. The sausage is spicy and fresh. Squealer's is big, but the service is great. It's near the airport, in the suburb of Mooresville, west of Indianapolis.
