“Outstanding local BBQ”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I was in town for business and stayed near I 465 and 86th street and was looking for a casual place to grab a bite to eat. Upon entering the restaurant I could tell this was a place for local's and they usually pick the best spots! I was very impressed with the pork sandwich and the side order of beans.

nothing fancy but great BBQ and very friendly service. The bartender was telling a group at the bar she had been there for 10+ years and she prided herself and the restaurant on their consistency.

I highly recommend if you are looking for a casual location with very good food.

“Walking through the parking lot...”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The smell is in the air. The smell of the smokey goodness that is waiting for you inside. Whether you are a fan of brisket, or a fan of pulled pork, Squealers has something for you. The chicken wings are big and delicious, and the meat falls off of the bone of the ribs.

This location is busiest at lunch on a weekday, especially on Fridays. It is near a business park so there is rarely a wait for dinner.

I eat (or cater) here 3-4 times a month. In my opinion, it is the best barbeque in the city.

“Best BBQ in the area.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We have eaten here several times for both lunch and dinner.

We ordered pulled pork sandwich and the beef brisket dinner. Both were generous servings but IMO the pork was more flavorful. We dined at about 9pm restuarant was empting out and not busy. Food arrived in a timely manner however, it took forever to get additional BBQ sauce. Food was cold by the time we ate it, but still tasted good. Steak Fries are typical frozen restaurtant grade and were over cooked. Baked beans good with meat in them. KY.Bourbon pie is a homemade pecan pie with huge fresh pecans on top, made in house and good. Friend enjoyed the fried biscuits with apple butter.

Service was not the fastest but was friendly enough.

Meat can be served dry or wet with a choice of Mild, Mixed, or Hot BBQ sauce. We always get the mixed.

They always play blues music and it adds to the casual atmosphere.

“Great Pulled Pork”
Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

We eat here often and have eaten here at different times of the day and have never had to wait for a table. The food is always delicious. The pork has a great smoked flavor & is good with or without sauce. I like the sauce on the side so that I can combine the sweet with the spicy. The onion strings are very tasty too. The pulled pork meal offers a lot of food for the price. I always take home leftovers for another complete meal. The fried biscuits and apple butter are good too. The tenderloins are huge. Beans have a great flavor. If you like pork, this is your place!

“Great ribs and barbecue”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

With great baby back ribs, good quality side dishes (the mac and cheese is a favorite) and quick service, Squealers is a favorite of ours. The pulled pork sandwiches are great for lunch too.
