Hanks has some great BBQ. Good traditional pulled pork and back ribs, absolutely. But, also some unusual choices such as smoked corned beef, which is really good! Hanks is a worthy entry in the best BBQ in Indianapolis sweepstakes!

Best brisket I've ever had. Ribs were good but not on the level of the brisket. Parking is tight and the neighborhood iffy, but worth the trip. Carry out only.

Brisket was as good as I have had and the sauce is amazing! Parking lot was full and difficult to get out of. Sides of baked beans and mac and cheese were average.

This carry-out joint is always busy. If you want to take meals back to the office or your hotel room, or wherever, call ahead. I had the large rib-tip (my favorite) dinner and it easily fed two or possibly three. The menu is limited but...More

Great place to pick up some amazing BBQ. Brisket and corned beef are phenomenal. Friendly owners who offered up samples to try a few things even after the order was placed. Highly recommended. Keep in mind this is take out only with no seating available.

I'd been to Hank's several times and learned early to just get 1/2 lb. of meat. Hank was talking about his trips to Texas to get mesquite wood. He gave me a sample on the smoked corn beef and I was totally blown away! Absolutely...More
