An Indiana Classic Since 1963.

Payton’s Barbecue was born in the basement of Zula Payton’s small grocery store.

Mrs. Payton perfected the recipe, and decades later, the business is still in the family. Zula’s famous barbecue recipe is still our staple but we’ve added more products to better serve Midwest families.

Highest quality ingredients, every time.

We have families of our own, which is why we know why serving good food is so important.

All of our products are all natural, gluten free, fully cooked, and ready to heat and serve. We only use quality ingredients and do not add preservatives. You can feel good about serving your family a quick, healthy meal with Payton’s.

It's so easy to fix a good meal!

We are so busy and it seems I never have time to fix a good meal. It’s either drive through or a quick PBJ. However, finding Payton’s Barbecue fixed that! Even the kids can heat up the meat for a good, warm meal.

It’s a life saver!

Keep them coming back for more!

While our history started with Zula Payton’s famous recipe, we’re more than just barbecue.

All of our products are frozen, fully cooked, gluten and preservative free, and made with quality ingredients. 

Payton’s Barbecue Pulled Pork

We hand pull pork every day and then cook it in our sweet, smoky barbecue sauce. Whether you want a pulled-pork sandwich or to get a little more creative, Payton’s Barbecue Pulled Pork is fast, easy, and healthy.
