Business Description

If you're looking for some authentic, mouth-watering barbeque, then look no further than BBQ Train in Bloomington, Indiana. This unassuming gas station turned eatery has become a local legend, thanks to their finger-licking good pulled pork, ribs, brisket, and chicken.

But it's not just the meat that makes BBQ Train stand out. They've also perfected the art of the side dish, with homemade macaroni and cheese, baked beans, and coleslaw that are the perfect complement to any barbeque dish.

The history of BBQ Train is deeply intertwined with the local community. The property owner, Chris Smith, returned to his hometown of Bloomington after working as a civil engineer in Charlotte, NC. He took over Short Stop Food Mart and was devoted to reinventing the neighborhood grocery by focusing on customer service, a friendly atmosphere, and local products.

Sarah, a BBQ Train employee, has worked there for six years and has honed her BBQ skills by trying new recipes, studying the history of BBQ, and attending BBQ Bootcamp with nationally recognized elite competition barbeque chef Chris Marks.

But don't just take our word for it. Yelp reviews rave about the food, with one reviewer saying, "Excellent excellent food excellent. I can't say it enough. The green beans are amazing like none you've ever had before." Another reviewer was initially skeptical but was won over, saying, "I am NOT going to lie to you -- I was very skeptical about this place. My coworker had told me about 'the barbecue in a gas station.' And where from, I..."

If you're in the Bloomington area, make sure to stop by BBQ Train and experience the best barbeque in Indiana.
