Was in town on business. Haven't been there in many years. Onion straws great. German potato salad is awesome. Wasn't like I remembered. BBQ Sauce resembled marinara type taste. Nice place, clean, decor is neat. Just not like I remembered.

I went to Shylers to have dinner and decided to try some straws. Little did I know there would be enough for 4 people. I ordered the Babyback Rib & Pulled pork combo with German potato salad and baked beans. Evansville & Owensboro are blessed with a lot of very good BBQ but this is my first time back to... More

We drove 30 miles to frequent the old resturant years ago before it was destroyed by fire. It took a long time (years) to reestablish. Was it worth the wait? Barely.... Menu is very different from what I remembered, and overall not as good. I don't mean to imply that it is bad, because it's not, just not as good.... More

This is like the 3rd or 4th time I've ate here since they opened I love the German potato salad I ordered the barbecue chicken on the bone but the chicken was very very small. We also had the cheese sticks which are huge they are the best cheese sticks you can get but my only complaint was they need... More

I cannot return to my hometown without having bar-b-q and there are many choices. Our extended family went here for a good meal and evening visit. Expectations were met. Good food, not necessarily the best I've every had but perfectly good. The staff was friendly and it was a nice place to sit and visit. We were not in any... More

Food was good, selection adequate, waitress very nice. Couldn't help remembering how at the old Shyler's one had to wait for a table, and this time we walked right in.

We stopped in late afternoon for take out. The take out department was not completed and we were able to sit at the bar and chat with the staff. Being newly opened it was a little disorganized but our order was soon up and the ribs and beans were just as we remembered. I was really glad to see the... More

When all you can eat and bbq are used in the same sentence, it's dangerous. The sides are tasty - especially the german potato salad. Looking forward to coming back to the area for some soon.

This place had a fire and has announced it will be closed with possible limited carryout until April. It's probably a blessing in disguise (not for the staff obviously, who I pray for during these holidays) but the place is just not up to par with it's reputation. Good luck to Shyler's in the future, I look forward to the... More
