Almost excellent

The BBQ here is better than we had expected and they sell cool t-shirts.I believe that all their meats are smoked. I had brisket, which was juicy and tender and looked almost too good to eat. My wife had baby backs, which were also very good. They serve typical sides, all of which were very good... read more

We were in town for a soccer tournament and Squealers accommodated our large party with no problem in a private room. The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed. But more importantly I have to commend the service we received. Our waitress was not only incredibly nice but extremely efficient with our large party. She was patient and friendly, even with 12...

If you're looking for some serious bbq flavor, try this restaurant. We chose the deluxe pork nachos to start with sweet sauce. Seriously we could have eaten another order because the portion was for two, the flavor was divine, and the price was right. Next we had pulled pork sandwiches with a side of slaw, followed by blackberry cobbler. You... More

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 really liked the sauces.... 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

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
