I love Squealers drinks, especially their lemonade. My favorite is this amazing strawberry lemonade. It is the perfect combination of sweet and sour. The pulled pork does tend to be too dry if you opt to have the sauce on the side of the pulled pork, but other than that, I love squealers.

Visited the Indy area on business but met with friends for dinner at Squealers. Three of us Tried the brisket and were very happy with our choice because it was flavorful. One really enjoyed the turkey. We all had different side dishes. The server was friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stop by again when in Indy.

Nachos are great. Covered with pulled pork and sauce. Good to ask for extra sauce on the side. I got the mission sauce. Sweet with a kick.

We took our daughers and grandkids to Squealers for lunch and had a great time. The food was delicious, the tv's entertained the children and we were all full and looking forward to the next trip!

We met another couple for lunch. We were seated right away, and drink orders were quickly served. I normally like iced tea, but I tried the lemonade this time, and it was sweet and tart, just like I like it. I went out on a limb and ordered the brisket tacos for something different. They come two to an order,... More

Perhaps we don't get it but there was nothing "award winning" about our lunch today. Nice enough building and black/red rustic decor. Bar area to the left of entrance and two dining areas to the left and right of the entrance. Our young male waiter was exceptional in his customer service. Very polite, efficient, and helpful. I had the Jan's... More

Went to Squealers with friends last Saturday, we were there by 5:30pm. For some reason, they were very disorganized at hostess station, it took us 10 minutes to get seated although we counted 9 open booths. Finally seated, we were pleasantly greeted and soon ordered our food. An hour later, we were still waiting, although people around us, who were... More
