I told my husband that this place doesn't look like much, but we shouldn't let that discourage us. It's a small, basically take-out restaurant located next to a Dairy Queen that I drove right past and had to double back to, but I'm so glad I did. We walked in and were taken aback where there were no tables. Hank... More

I grew up in KC which in my mind is the Mecca of BBQ. I now live in Indy and have searched high and low for a quality BBQ place. Hank's fills that void. Hank and Brenda are awesome. The corned beef is AMAZING!! I think best BBQ in Indy.

We were passing through Indianapolis around lunchtime and found some good reviews for Hanks. So we decided to give it a try. Our rule of thumb is that a restaurant that does something well doesn't need an extensive menu. Hank's is such a place. Choosing between the smoked brisket and the smoked "corn beef" was hard enough, but after Hank... More

Any food that is tasty and doesn't make me sick I enjoy. The parking is limited but I enjoyed the smoked corn beef and Mac n cheese.

Both the brisket and the corned beef were wonderful. Take out food only. Sides for the meat are also available.

I was recently in Indy and considered stopping by Hank's for some good old fashioned brisket... that is until I checked the menu here on trip advisor: "Price List 15.00 Seniors 15.00 Adults (18 & Up) 10.00 Kidz Cut (10 & Under) 12.00 Kids Cut (10 yrs +) 3.00 Beard 5.00 Mustache 25.00 Relaxers 5.00 Hair Line 5.00 Razor Line...

I live on the west side of Indianapolis and have no idea how I've missed this gem. I was in the mood for brisket and looked on the web and saw some good reviews for Hank's. It's right by the Dairy Queen on MLK across from the west side of Crown Hill cemetery. I liked everything about the restaurant which... More

I just finished my meal from Hank's. I had a pulled pork sandwich with sweet sauce and baked beans and potato salad. I like pulled pork sandwiches a lot and have tried quite a few versions around Indy. I'm not sure if other cities are as fond of this sandwich but Indy has what seems like a large selection. Anyway,... More

Moist, juicy & awesome. Friendly service and great sides. Since it was our first visit, they gave us samples of the beef & corned beef brisket. They were both yummy but we went with the beef--even my 6 year old loved it. The potato salad is to die for--sweet, yellow potato salad with a bit of curry--excellent! The slaw and... More
