Good barbeque

Ate here while in Indy for a short visit. The brisket was good, but average sized portion. The beans were average, but the beer was cold. If you're driving by and looking to eat, a great place to stop, but wouldn't go out of my way to go again.

The baby back ribs were dry. The pulled pork was dry. They had only 2 sauces (sweet or hot). The sides were average. The service was average.

This is the best barbecue I have ever had. The pork is award winning. The baked beans and the sauce are worth the trip. Love the kind staff.

First impression could not have been more wrong. Food was excellent, and service was outstanding (thank you Beth!). I gave a 50% tip it was so extraordinary.

Went there on recommendation of hotel staff. It was delicious BBQ and the side of beans and slaw was just as good. I got the beef brisket and wife got pulled pork. Go here if you got an itchin' for good BBQ. You wont be disappointed.

Squealers has to be THE BEST PLACE FOR BBQ! Great service, Great food, and Clean restaurant. I had the Award Winning Pulled Pork sandwich Smokey Sweet with coleslaw and chips. This sandwich is divine! Being a southern gal myself, I was blown away by the taste. I hated to swallow every bite because it was so good! It is a... More

My husband loves this place. The one time I went I was excited for good BBQ. The service was good. The food was alright. I really wanted some BBQ chicken. It was with my luck they had no chicken at all. The server talked me into the BBQ turkey which I must say was very dry. So dry that BBQ... More

This review is written as a courtesy to those who appreciate good barbecue ribs. The half slab of baby back ribs that I ordered arrived promptly with okay sides of slaw and beans. The problem is that the ribs were over cooked and flavorless. The looked like a piece of barn wood and tasted like a piece of barn wood.... More

Being from New Jersey we do not get BBQ like this. It was AWESOME! We tried the brisket, pulled pork, rib tips, and pulled chicken. The Carolina sauce was tangy and full of flavor. Loved it. The BBQ beans were delicious. Apple butter yummy!! The biscuits are deep fried and good and naughty. They have an allergy list of sorts... More
