I'm a bit of a BBQ freak. Always looking for the good stuff. I have to say, I found it here. Service was quite friendly too.

Fun low-key roadhouse joint with large portions for hearty appetites ... We were part of large group (50) and the wait staff was great getting food and drinks for all. Plenty to eat, just 'ask' and they brought more of anything you liked. Ribs, brisket and chicken were great

Why isn't this review higher? Simply put when you advertise having CO's "best ribs" they better be really, really good. Instead Hickory House had nice ribs. They were tender but really didn't have a lot of flavor unless you added sauce and the same could be said for the brisket. It seems like they're probably playing for the mass tourist... More

The Hickory House staff were super hosts for our ski club outing. More than generous portioned servings of flavorful ribs, savory brisket, tangy cole slaw & cheese potatoes from heaven, at a very wallet-friendly price. Try it!

This place is delicious! This place knows how to do barbecue. The ribs, pulled pork, wings, and hamburgers are the best in the city. They also have an amazing breakfast selection. The biscuits and gravy are awesome. The blueberry pancake is the size of a frisbee and tasty.

After skiing all day long, we found The Hickory House. It was the best Barbeque we have ever had. I had the full rack of baby back ribs and they were awesome. The location is a little out of town but the free city bus passes right by and we just got off the next stop. Worth the trip and... More

So about 45 of our ski club attended a group dinner at this restaurant. The bar was open and accommodating upon our mass arrival. A bit overwhelmed but soon all thirsty members were well hydrated at which time we were seated in the family dinning area for a great home style feast which was accompanied with cole slaw, potato, baked...
