Consistently Good Food

We've been going to Squeelers for several years. You can always count on great food. Even if you're not in the mood for BBQ I would highly recommend the breaded tenderloin. It's large enough to share with someone else unless you're really hungry. Just ask for another bun and cut it in half. Very... read more

The biscuits and apple butter were delicious! It is like eating a donut, but I didn't care. I had the pork nachos, and they were okay. I appreciated the sour cream that came with it.

We walked right in and only had to wait 5 minutes for a table for 5 at 6pm on a Saturday. We saw the waitress write down all of our orders, but for some reason she forgot to enter in 1 person's order. The food that arrived was very tasty, the ribs had a huge amount of flavor but were... More

I am always looking for good barbecue. I lived in South Carolina for 40 years before moving to Indiana 20 years ago. Barbecue is important to us. Thus, the quest for a good barbecue place. We were in the area shopping and had read about Squealers. We arrived on a Saturday around noon. The location is good with a fair... More

In town for a weekend get away and decided to try this place. Had 4 adults and 4 kids. Very friendly and kind staff. Food was delicious, except the nachos were a bit underwhelming. Kids got balloons on the way out and they had these little toys they gave them while waiting for our food which in my opinion distracted... More

We came here at the request of family that swore it was fantastic. My husband ordered the huge, but flavorless tenderloin that kept loosing the breading each time he bumped it. They placed the greasy slab of meat on top of his fried rendering them somewhat less than tasty. Store-bought biscuit dough, rolled into a ball and deep fried does... More

I've been eating at Squealers for many years, since before they opened the Indy location. In the past couple of years, they have raised their prices substantially (far beyond the rate of inflation) and their portions have gradually become smaller. Food is still good, but the price increases have gotten out of hand. Just recently, their price for a glass... More

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. The prices are also... 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
