    I'm really happy that we find this place on our way home. However, I'm very disappointed that I live so far away from it. I ordered the brisket sandwich with some extra pulled pork. I also ordered the sausage sampler and peach … More cobbler. Everything was delicious. The sauce was what very good and not sweet which I don't like sweet sauces. The only issue was that the sausages were a little tough but still great. They come with a small dish of some sort of cheese dip which was also very good. I would recommend the stop if your ever close by, it is worth it.

    Possibly the best brisket I have ever had. I've worked with the staff before during a plumbing renovation and everyone was always kind and helpful as they were today. Small town feel with a big town taste. I would highly recommend … More checking out this place if you haven't had the chance.

    We just left with our bellies full! This place is great and we will definitely be back! I got the baby back ribs which were tasty, but the Rockstar for me was the greens! I could order a bucket full! The Mac and cheese was really good too! … More Can't wait to try the rest of the menu! Thanks for the great food and service!

    Simply the best BBQ I have had anywhere. Their meats are all amazing. Their sides are all amazing as well. While they are an award winning restaurant for their food and I would be a regular customer anyway, what really sets them apart … More is their owners' commitment to community. There are many examples of this, but one stands out for me.
    One time I came into the Silo and it was quite busy. An elderly lady who was lost came in looking for help. The owner stepped away from the pit, past the counter and helped her figure out how to get to her destination. I will not forget that one.

    The food is so great, this was my first meal while recovering from neck surgery that was performed through the throat. What more can I say?!?!?
    Great place with great people and atmosphere, very community minded. Really honored to know
    … More Tina and Rob as friends/family.

    Our first experience with the Rusted Silo was today. Fabulous Food. We got the ribs and several sides. The macaroni and cheese and collards were amazing. It waa crowded inside so we opted for outside and experienced the train as well. … More I'll def be going back.
  • Avatar Mom03 ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    I have heard of this place and tried it for the first time last night. Had pork, chicken, and sausage and it was amazing. There was a small problem and owner went above and beyond to correct. This place did not disappoint. Service and food … More were wonderful. Something you just don't get anymore.
  • Avatar Reggie Braziel ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    We absolutely love the Rusted Silo brisket sandwich and BBQ baked beans! This little hole-in-the wall restaurant has some of the best barbecue you will ever eat! We loved it so much when we ate there over two years ago that we planned … More it as one of our "must eat" places on our trip to Indiana last week.
  • Avatar Kathleen Anderson ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    Consistently delicious meats and sides. They keep it simple and perfect. The cheese grits are my favorite. Good service. So many beers in their cooler. Charming building. Their bird box is an awesome deal
  • Avatar M C ★★★★★ 5 months ago
    This is by far my favorite BBQ restaurant in Indiana. The food here is excellent. You will definitely not leave this restaurant hungry. On top of that they also have a very impressive beer selection. Great food, great service. My personal … More favorite is the brisket. We will keep coming back to this place for sure.
  • Avatar veronica arce ★★★★★ 2 months ago

    Gal at the counter was very helpful with this first timer. This Mac has got to be one of the best recipes I've had. Great atmosphere, great music, great food.

    ===== UPDATE 2021 =====
    Second visit did not disappoint! 🙂 We had the ribs and chicken wings, yum. Redid the honey slaw and collard greens, yum yum. Their recommended beer hit the spot. If you're in the area you'd be nuts
    … More to not try it.
    ===== 2019 =====
    First time.
    Great food in a hole-in-the-wall roadhouse environment. Friendly efficient folks. Yummmmmm.
    We had the smoked brisket and the chicken... and the honey slaw and the collard greens. All were crazy good.
    And wide selection of beers that we didn't try. Next time 👍
    Place is small but the table turnover is fast. We didn't wait for a table even though the place was full when we walked in the door.
  • Avatar Beverly Hanson ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    Our 1st visit we were greeted by Rob the owner. He walked us through the menu, brought our fantastic meal to our table, and even gave us some great tips regarding smoking meat. The Brisket and Chicken are tops!! Beans, Cheesy Grits, and … More Mac 'N Cheese are flavorful sides!!
  • Avatar Jana Minks ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Best BBQ I have ever eaten. We have never had a meal that was any less than excellent. Staff is friendly and courteous.. Definitely a must try establishment
  • Avatar Bob Hicks ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    I am in Indy for a golf outing and a friend recommended we try it ..Wow!! Great Great food . Very friendly staff. Met the owner and his wife . They take great pride in their food . Would highly recommend trying if you are in the area.
  • Avatar Erin Hardwick ★★★★★ 7 months ago
    Fantastic brisket, ribs, slaw, grits and Mac and cheese. Everything was very tasty. Service was friendly and fast. Cool vibe to the little joint. Owners wife was friendly as well as the other staff. We will be back!
  • Avatar Bridget Dean ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Stopped in for lunch today (7/7) while passing through. Food was great! I had a pulled pork sandwich with potato salad. It is a small place but very quaint with an industrial country vibe. The gal taking orders was so nice and asked … More if we had ever been there and helped us find good stuff on the menu. The meat is prepared right where everyone can see and it all looked amazing. Nice little place and I will be going back soon.
  • Avatar Scott Keith ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Best brisket I’ve ever had. I’ve reached the age and bmi where I’ve had so many great meals in my life it’s hard to impress me. I have little time for lame food, and this place impressed the hell outta me! Aside from stellar … More food, the team they have assembled really know they are doing and give top notch service backed with knowledge!
  • Avatar Christopher Hicks ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Been wanting to try this place for a while. Had the day off and decided to make the 40 minute drive. Absolutely worth it. I got the wings and the brisket sandwich with Mac and cheese. The sandwich had a ton of meat on it and was delicious. … More I had the Kentucky bourbon sauce on it and loved it. Wings were great as was the Mac and cheese. Will definitely be back soon.
  • Avatar Joseph San Miguel (Wyzer) ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    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!
  • Avatar Ed ★★★★★ 9 months ago
    Have heard great things about this place from work friends for several months. My mid-day meeting got cancelled, so I decided to try this place. Making this15min drive from Brownsburg was the best decision all day! You know it is a serious … More place when they offer both baby-back ribs and spare ribs. Knowing that men like to gnaw meat off of bone, the lady at the counter helped my decision making by informing me that spare ribs had more cartilage.
    I got a full rack of spare ribs, a half chicken with collard greens and some kind of zucchini/tomato thingy. I generally hate collard greens and zucchini just doesn't sound good. *WRONG!!* for Rusted Silo. Both were amazing and I even drank the juice at the bottom of the container. I've not done that for anything since I was in elementary school!
    Both the half chicken and spare ribs were amazingly tasty. There is some kind of hint of black pepper in the ribs that definitely added flavor without a hot/spicy kick that would cause me to not feed it to my toddler. The chicken was hot(temperature) yet still had that very slight hint of pinkness that screams "I'm tender, tasty, and safe".
    I devoured as much as I could and the family happily consumed the rest. This place is so awesome that I'm trying to reschedule some meetings next week so I have time to have lunch here again!
  • Avatar Bryan Beckman ★★★★★ 10 months ago
    Absolutely awesome! Fast service, fantastic food! Reasonable price and healthy portion! Some of the best BBQ I have ever had! Real wood used, real talent! Thanks! My table had ribs, brisket and pork sandwiches. Kept moist, tender and full … More of flavor! We also did peach, pecan pies and nanner pudding for desert... Awesome!
  • Avatar Mimí73 Midnight ★★★★★ 11 months ago
    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.
  • Avatar Jessica Marks ★★★★★ a year ago
    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!
  • Avatar Dominick Baldwin ★★★★★ a year ago
    Good food Great service
  • Avatar Asher Guernsey ★★★★★ a year ago
    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!
  • Avatar Aaron Majors ★★★★ a year ago
    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.
  • Avatar Michael Fleetwood ★★★☆☆ 11 months ago
    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.
  • Avatar Dianna McGuire ★★★★★ a year ago
    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!!
  • Avatar Ron Mulford ★★★★★ a year ago
    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!
  • Avatar sahar Maddah ★★★★★ a year ago
    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.
  • Avatar Georgia Hall ★★★★★ a year ago
    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 ★★★★★ a year 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.
  • Avatar Taffy French ★★★★★ a year ago
    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!
  • Avatar Paul Powell ★★★☆☆ a year ago
    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 ★★★★★ a year 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
  • Avatar james Schwartz ★★★★★ a year ago
    Hands down the Best BBQ in Indiana. It was worth the 2 hrs drive. Great food even nicer people.
  • Avatar Jessica Wickham ★★★★★ a year 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.
  • Avatar E. Michael Tann ★★★★★ a year ago
    This is our go to place for late lunch on our way back home from boating on Racoons Lake. Pulled pork is great.
