Great BBQ

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. A few... More

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
