Good BBQ

I've eaten at this location on several occasions over the last couple of years, most recently last month with two old friends. I always get the pulled pork sandwich topped with slaw and BBQ baked beans. Both are very tasty. It's a rather large restaurant so large groups should be no problem.

This was unusual BBQ, but it was excellent. The rib tips are wonderful but larger than I expected. But they had a good flavor. Also the fried biscuit is worth trying!

My pulled pork was melt in my mouth moist. I had the sweet bbq sauce and it was really good. We sat in the bar and the bartender was very friendly and helpful,

Probably the best BBQ in Indianapolis honestly. Great service too. One thing thought that i really want to point out, THE SAUCE! I can totally see how it won so many awards. After eating there we bought sauce and its gone already! Put it on everything! They have awesome owners awesome staff and great wait times. The food is delicious... More

I would say mediocre. The meat, squealer sandwich, was excellent. The sweet sauce was very good. The sides were meh. Service was slow, even though the restaurant was nearly empty.

Dined at the West 86th Street location Saturday December 19, 2015. Was greeted promptly by hostess. We were shown a booth close to other diners as if the hostess was trying to keep us in one area. We asked for a different booth and were seated in another part of the dining area. Our server, Tracy, was very energetic and... More

We hadn't been here for several years and are very glad we returned. No matter what else one orders, someone at the table should get the baby back ribs (and share them). They are fall off the bone delicious. The beef brisket is also a solid (and shareable) choice. The baked beans and coleslaw are tasty sides, as is the... More

We did not try the Barbeque but it did look good-especially the Barbeque Nacho appetizer. The grilled tenderloin sandwich was good but not amazing.

What a great place. Pulled pork was outstanding and the brisket was pretty good too. Can't wait to go back for the ribs. Service was very friendly and we were taken care of very well. Would recommend for dinner as serving was too much for lunch. I had the pick two sampler.
