The staff was friendly and gave us time to look and order without rushing us. The food was awesome, and the restaurant was clean and the bathrooms were spotless. Highly recommend eating here. I know I definitely will the next time I'm in Indianapolis.

I've been there before but it was at about 1:30 pm and the food was dry and just not worth the price. I saw that the potential for great food was there. This time, 3/17, I went in right when they opened, at 11:00 am. The food was awesome. The ribs were great. That being said, you can't run a business serving great food when you open ... read more

I was a regular at the downtown location since I used to work a couple of blocks away. I still stop in for lunch whenever I am downtown. Staff has always been friendly, food always great, and generous portions let me enjoy the leftovers the next day. The Hoss potato is my favorite. Keep up the good work!

Dad had a groupon and was paying for dinner. Waitress was friendly and polite but overall staff was loud and semi-obnoxious during time we were there. For example, dropped glasses then yelling from the kitchen area happened a couple times. We got the Trio platter and chose shredded brisket, pulled pork, and smoked chicken breast. The... read more

I hate going to Indianapolis, but the food, atmosphere, and cold beer was way worth it. I will definitely be going back. If you leave this place hungry it's your own fault, it's a true representation of what BBQ was like in Texas.

Reasonably priced and a great meal. Suggest the Trio Meats. The meats are really amazing and the sides are great also.

Tried Dick's Bodacious downtown location with the family this weekend. For a little background--my wife was an army brat who spent her high school years on Fort Bragg in North Carolina. So she knows good BBQ when she gets it. Currently her favorite in Indy is GT South's. Did Dick's trump that?Well, no. But! Dick's was really good. Th... read more

Good Bar-b-que in Indianapolis
Definitely yes! We were looking for a late casual dinner in downtown Indianapolis and came across Dick's. The had a great menu and the food was great. The ribs were "fall off the bone" and the brisket was very good. Try the "hot" bar-b-que sauce though. It has a little kick. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely... read more

Ordered a 2 step plate through GrubHub and it was sensational. Got the chopped chicken and sliced brisket, both were juicy and flavorful. Baked beans and mac and cheese were both great, also. Everything I ordered was there and it arrived fairly quickly. I will definitely visit this place again!

Great food and service!
The service and food is always excellent here. The only thing I wish they had is a changing table for infants in their restrooms, only downfall I've seen at the establishment.
Troy W via tripadvisor.com - Jan 7, 2017
Excellent customer service and deserves a higher rating. I usually get the same thing because they're consistent but this also gives me confidence to try other menu items.

Great customer service and excellent corn muffins!
We happened upon Dick's due to it being close to our hotel and it was really cold out. We ordered take out and it was ready timely. They couldn't have been nicer when it was picked up. The corn muffins were the best I had ever had. The kids meals was more than enough and my kids loved it. The salmon, beef brisket salad, and Texas P... read more

Definitely will be coming back. My wife and I were driving through and were originally thinking about a salad bar.

Decent Barbecue in Indy
Went to this barbecue place because convenient to hotel. They were out of rib tips and the ribs were fine but it was a dry rub. I prefer sauce which they had a mild and spicy on table. Baked beans were a treat as was the corn muffin. Very filling meal and the service was excellent and friendly.

I wish I had found it sooner,
I stayed in Indy for 3 days and went here my last night in town, I loved it and was sad that I would not be able to eat there again! It is conveniently located next to the Hilton Garden Inn and the BBQ was delicious! The sugar pie was heavenly. You must eat here it was great and the waitress was so nice.

The food is fantastic! My favorites are the chili, brisket, hoss potato, rib tips, and ribs. The managers and crew are absolutely wonderful. They also have amazing sugar cream pie and carrot cake.

Random Success
Picked at random at the point of exhaustion on a city walk, Dick's Bodacious Bar-B-Q was a good choice.
