Time after time I continue to go back and I keep asking myself why? Very pricey, slow and once again on this trip....my food was cold.

The pulled pork was good for Indiana. It's not TX or OK BBQ but it was good. I would eat here again.

We enjoy the BBQ ribs and brisket. This location has a nostalgic past. The Banquet Room is in the historic Wassell Inn. This Inn is where we as teenagers danced the evening away to good old Rock and Roll, many year ago.

Not sure but Rick's BBQ is ALWAYS excellent. I moved to Kansas City which advertises as BBQ central for USA....haven't found one as good as Ricks. Just went back to Terre Haute for a visit a week ago and went to Ricks... More
