Pretty Good Baby Back Ribs

Took my wife to the Hickory House to see if the Ribs were as good as advertised. Bottom Line - they were pretty good. The portion were large enough for us to split a plate of ribs. If you are a big eater or burning lots of calories, then you might not want to split the plate. The restaurant... read more

Great breakfast, except no real butter :(. Only hydrogenated spread. Big screen tv with 1st round of Wimbledon on and bottomless coffee. Basic service and plates on table too long.

We ordered the family platter that came with ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and chicken. The ribs are boiled and seared over a grill (not smoked!). There were sharp shards of bone in the meat (BE CAREFULL). The brisket, pork, and chicken were edible but not what I would call legit BBQ. I think the cooks smother the meat with bbq... More

I should ask my son to write a review, I was too concentrated onto not getting my fingers dirty whilst eating those delicacies and he, my son, along with my best friend Sergio and Paulie, the boss at Hickory House, were making fun of me... I'd easily say that Aspen is no Aspen without a visit at the Hickory House,... More

One of the old long time restaurants in Aspen still serving great BBQ. I used to be a regular back in the 1970's when I lived there and it's still going strong. Casual, outdoor seating with great food at reasonable prices.

We thoroughly enjoyed our barbecue dinner at Hickory House. Service was good, facility was clean and menu had a great selection. It's hard to find a reasonably priced restaurant in Aspen. This is one and you'll enjoy it as well!

The rib portions were ample-one order enough for two with additional side of brisket. Both ribs and brisket were delicious. We enjoyed our exchange about travels with our waitress.

This place has a very cosy atmosphere. My wife got the ribs and I got the rib and catfish dinner. The ribs were excellent, the catfish was decent. Overall a good experience. Some of the staff (the guy) was top notch and very attentive and some of the staff (the girl) seemed tired and did not pay too much attention... More

It is a walk from the core of the town but the place deserves it. Love their Onion rings, catfish dinner, ribeye steak and ribs. Portions are great and they come with few choices of side dishes. Every time I come here the service is impeccable!!!!! This place should be on your list to visit in Aspen. Great food, great... More
