Oprah Winfrey actually commented on these ribs. Despite that they really are good. The restaurant is a classic BBQ joint and good comfort food. Thursday is rib specials so you get some extra food or something like that since they do have ribs everyday.

Whenever my husband and I fly into Aspen we go to Hickory House on our first evening in Aspen always. It's a MUST! Place is warm and cozy with great beer and excellent BBQ! Everything on the MASSIVE menu is so good! TV's everywhere and extremely casual attire.

Coming from Australia, all my family was hoping for was an authentic American rib experience. Hickory House exceeded our expectations! The ribs, briskit, chicken and pork was all cooked to perfection! The most amazingly cooked meats for such a great price. We would definitely recomend this restaurant to all visiting Aspen!

Wasn't really thinking we would find really good bbq in a place like Aspen but we did! We have lots of bbq places in Florida so we eat it quite often. Hickory House was really, really good and had a very great atmosphere. We came in late one night with 3 small children and they welcomed us warmly and seated... More

The food was great, generous portions for the price you pay. And the service suited, no complaints during our dinner so overall a good all round experience.

An institution in Aspen BBQ food. Buffalo wings and ribs were fantastic as was the service. Even the kids loved it. Would definitely come back.

Went to restaurant this evening with my son after torturous flight from New York; he had arrived earlier from North Carolina. On another site a reviewer had extolled the applesauce and pickles. Well they didn't have pickles and the applesauce consisted of a small sealed container of Mott's Applesauce. Nothing special. The mashed potatoes (that were also extolled) were okay.... More

We decided to walk - perhaps not a great idea as things always look shorter on a map. When we got there we got a table straight away (no reservations...) and were overwhelmed by the size of the menu and the size of the meals!! The Ribs are amazing, the grilled meats phenomenal and it feels very "authentic" American. We... More
