Squealing with delight!

My friend was visiting so we decided to try something new. We were @ the new location on 86th street. We shared the onion strings & the BBQ nachos. We liked both of them. We also like the sauces. We were there around 4:30 so it wasn't crowded. Our server was friendly & knowledgeable. We both... read more

1st off PLEASE turn down the music! It was nearly impossible to talk without feeling like you were screaming. As for the BBQ ??? have had better but have had worse the Rid Tips were good, the pulled pork was somewhat dry and stringy. The Pork Chop was well cooked and still juicy. Prices were a little high for what... More

I'm 30 years old. And to this day. This is the only BBQ I like. The brisket dinner is all you need to know. I like mine wet and sweet with a side is sweet as well.

The food is very good, the Brunswick stew is phenomenal. I had a dry sampler platter with sauce on the side, next time I would have it wet. The pulled pork was good but not as good as I expected. Smoked chicken was amazing as were the ribs. Beer selection is alright, service was good.

We love Squealers pulled pork sandwich. The rib tips are great also. Have used for party's as well. Atmosphere is country, loud if very crowded. We usually do carry out. I think one of the best barbeque places around Indy

Stopped in later Friday night for late dinner. The place was reasonably crowded but we were seated very quickly. Server was overloaded and we ended up with another server. She was efficeint. Ordered fried pickles which were ok. They were cornmeal breaded. We each ordered the "Pick two plus we added the sausage. The sausage was very good. The brisket... More

Some of the most tender, and best tasting pulled pork I've ever eaten to this day is served here at Squealers! The service was friendly, and the ticket times for the meal were very fast. Under 8 minute ticket times! It has a very laid back environment. Great blues music playing in the background too. I would highly recommend this... More

nothing fAncy indoors. Good bbq but portions vary greatly each time we come. Great place to take kids because service is usually quick. Average prices.

We go here just about every time we are in Indy. Always good food and good service. BBQ nachos are the best.

Yes it is Valentine's Day, but they really were not that busy. We have always loved Squealers and many lunch waiters even recognize us. We love the baby back ribs there and specifically went there for ribs tonight. We were told they were all out. After looking disappointed the waitress said they would have some in 45 minutes.
