    Good BBQ in the Midwest. Place is small, and has very limited inside seating, not sure if there is any outside? They offer the basics of a BBQ place, with a bit of variation on the meat plate you order. Brisket plate comes with Texas … More toast, raw onions and peppers, sausage plate comes with saltines and a seasoned cream cheese spread. Everything was great, even the fresh brewed tea was done just right. Had the in-house made sugar cream pie, and it was wonderful. I look forward to going back to try the wings!

    Very delicious 😋! First time there, and the food was great. I had the beef brisket, and my husband had the sausage plate. The sides are small, but tasty. I felt it was a little spendy for the portions, but it turns out to be just right, … More I didn't leave hungry. Just me and my husband we spend a little under $50.00, so definitely a ones in a while place to eat for those with a tight budget.

    This place is a hidden gem! We knew we made a good choice for dinner when the smell of BBQ heaven hit us about 10 ft from the front door. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Awesome beer selection! The ribs were delicious … More (especially covered in their habanero bourbon sauce), and the mac n cheese has a unique flavor that's absolutely spectacular! This is for sure our new BBQ spot!

    Down south flavor and hospitality! The smokiness is apparent the moment you step through the door. The cooler behind the glass shows the freshness of the meat and an extensive craft beer selection. The brisket was phenomenal, but I definitely … More was jealous of my girlfriend who ordered the ribs, hoo boy they were amazing! Great place, highly recommend!

    The brisket is the best. Wife had baby back ribs and could not eat them because they were so tough. She couldn't even pull them apart until she put them in a death grip and yanked. She did say the Coleslaw was yummy though. The macandcheese … More was pasty. I had the brisket platter and like I said, it is the best. So tender and juicy. Had the potato salad and ranch beans... Beans were all tomato, potato salad dry. We did buy a pound of brisket to go though because it is so good and caz wife needed something besides the Coleslaw to eat from her platter.

    The food was good - typical barbecue. The ribs were very good. We also had chicken and brisket. The brisket was average. What bothered me was the fact that they shamed us for eating take-out on their picnic tables. We had a group of 14 … More people, so we ordered 2 pounds of brisket, a rack of ribs, and a whole chicken. This had to be ordered to go. We asked for plates so we could eat there on their outside picnic tables. I was told they would do that for us this time, but if we came back we would have to eat off premises, because asking for paper plates and plastic-ware was cutting into their profits. My bill was right around $100 which I think was reasonable for what we got, but I think the complaining about giving us paper plates and plastic-ware after spending that much is poor customer relations. They don't have to worry about this happening again - I probably won't be back.

    Very impressed with this place! First time here and there will be many more times to come. You can tell they take pride in their food! Thank you for making our bellies happy!!

    I've been eating BBQ for a long time. I even lived in SC for a short time. This is the best BBQ overall that I've had anywhere. The sausage was amazing. The Brisket and Pulled pork where right there too. The ribs were good … More as well as the chicken wings. The sides and dessert were good. Generous portions. Drink selection was very good. We went for lunch. It was so good we bought a large To Go order to take home for dinner. We'll be back!

    You walk in, and the smell is intoxicating. That's how you know you are getting good barbecue. That and the fact that I saw all women behind the line. These ladies get it done. My husband and I had the brisket, ribs, and Mac n cheese. … More Amazing. And the BBQ sauce was delicious and smokey. Normally a BBQ place is carried by the smoked meat but the mac n cheese brought it's 'A' game to the plate. Hell yes ladies. Well played.

    Best BBQ I have ever had. The sides were flavorful and delicious. The peach cobbler and nanner pudding were the perfect finish to the meal. To top it all off they were all so kind and welcoming. Will be back very soon to try the next … More plate!
  • Avatar Joshua Malcolmson ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    I've had BBQ all over the country. This was, hands down, one of the top 3 briskets, I've ever had. The owners and staff were incredibly nice and honestly cared that my experience was top notch. You won't find better smoked … More meats, but the sides were phenomenal as well.
    If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

    This was our first time back since their reopening and oh my goodness, it was better than I remember! I’ve missed this goodness! The chicken sandwich was so flavorful! The ranch beans and cheese grits talk to my wannabe a southern girl … More soul. I could eat them for every meal!

    Ribs were delicious, didn't know they did not have a place to eat them except a picnic table outside. Was very disappointed at the lack of service
  • Avatar tom terry ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    This place is best kept secret in the Indianapolis area. Very friendly staff, and the food is mouthwatering! Can’t get enough of this place. Thanks Rob

    Hands down the Best BBQ in Indiana. It was worth the 2 hrs drive. Great food even nicer people.
  • Avatar Jessica Wickham ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Mouthwatering ribs, amazing sides, and priced to fill you up without busting the wallet! I am picky when it comes to BBQ and Rusted Silo didn't disappoint. We've only ordered for take out at this point, but food has been hot, … More fresh, and delicious every time! Will definitely continue to order food from here in the future.

    This is our go to place for late lunch on our way back home from boating on Racoons Lake. Pulled pork is great.
