Everything they have is the best – I have been going to Pa & Ma's since 1965 and it is the best in the city. No the best I have ever had anywhere. Their sauce is 5 star as is all the rest of their food. Geo, the owner, is the best and every visit to Pa & Ma's has been a real dining experience. Their cobbler, sweet potato pie, and greens are the best ever. I hope Geo makes a fortune at this place of indpls history.

Amazing BBQ sauce – I had no idea of the local history, the barbeque sauce is amazing and an Indiana original. Its a true treasure, you can find the sauce in Marsh supermarkets to use at home too!! Thank you Pa and Ma's for your superb taste

Tiny barbecue joint known for its ribs, also serves soul food, sides and desserts at reasonable prices. – In Short
Small eatery is said to be the oldest black owned restaurant serving mouth-watering barbecue, greens, baked beans and pies. The restaurant's famous ribs tend to cost anywhere from $6.37 to $18.14 and are grilled over charcoal. The ribs are cooked and basted with the restaurant's own barbecue sauce ranging in flavors of sweet, mild or hot. Locals on lunch break from work tend to gather at the eatery, which tends to get a bit crowded.
