Parky’s Smokehouse is a gourmet barbecue restaurant in Lebanon, Indiana, just Northwest of Indianapolis. The local Lebanon hotels like to recommend Parky’s Smokehouse, and for very a good reason. Voted “Best Restaurant in Boone County in 2008,” winner of the 2008 People’s Choice Award for Boone County, and awarded a position among “10 Little Gems” from Indianapolis Monthly, this Lebanon restaurant even rivals the great smokehouse restaurants in Indianapolis and the other nearby cities in Indiana.
Parky’s Smokehouse original rubs and sauces have evolved over the last twenty years or so into the irresistible, mouth-watering rubs and sauces they serve today, along with their juicy, full-flavored meats, cooked “low and slow” over apple and hickory woods. Hosts Gary and Julie Parks call Parky’s a true labor of love, and mention that you’ll taste it in every bite.
Parky’s doesn’t stop with the taste, however. Presentation is also paramount here, and you will be just as pleased with the way your food looks as the way it tastes.
Try their now-famous wet or dry Baby Back Ribs, the house signature Smokehouse Salad or Great Smokehouse Mountain Burger, the award-winning and spectacular Barbecue Chili, the spice-rubbed and marinated Beef Brisket Dinner, Parky’s famous Coffee Crusted Ribeye, their Bourbon Barbecue Strip, Blackened Mahi Mahi in sherry sauce or the unforgettable Pecan-Crusted Walleye filet. Kids love the Fish and Chips and Popcorn Shrimp, served with Parky’s homemade slaw, crispy fries and bread.
Parky’s Smokehouse offers incredible pizzas that people will happily drive many miles for, and there’s an ongoing special on Parky’s Garden Salad with Pizza for only $1.99. Try the Buffalo Chicken Pizza, the Smokehouse Pizza or the Turkey Cranberry Pizza for some real Italian barbecue delight.
The list goes on forever, with more and more items, each one more tempting than the last. How about the Smothered Sausage, the Pub-Style Cod, the house Bacon Cheeseburger or the Signature Wrap with turkey, chicken, cheeses, egg, peppers, greens and pineapple, topped by a sumptuous barbecue cheddar dressing? Or you could just stop boggling your mind with the choices and get the Smokehouse Sampler.
Not content to let their edibles speak for themselves, Parky’s Smokehouse has a killer list of liquid refreshments to complement your meal, with special bottled and draft beer and wine, as well as non-alcoholic specialty drinks such as Kiwi- or Pomegranate-flavored Iced tea.
Take the trip, however long or short, and see what all the fuss is about. You’ll become a fan, too.
