Hickory House in Aspen serves the best barbecue ribs, brisket and pulled pork. The dinner includes slaw, baked beans and a variety of potatoes. The potatoes au gratin are out of this world delicious. Start your meal with fried onion rings. The wait staff are friendly. If you like barbecue, this is the place. The restaurant accomodates large parties as... More

We ordered the filet (cooked medium), ribs, and brisket. The filet came well-done (though not horribly dry), the brisket had huge globs of really disgusting fat, and the ribs were reasonable although nothing to write home about. Our waitress was wonderful!

Rustic restaurant on main road in Aspen with great food, very fair prices and drinks were also fairly priced. Does get noisy due to bar and large TV in dining room and we were there on a Monday night football night. But the food and sides were as good as I have had in a Bar-B-Q place. Our waitress was...

We enjoyed our large plate of ribs, beans, cole slaw and a side of very large onion rings. Restaurant closes at 9 pm. while they still displayed a sign outside stating they were open until 10 pm. Service was pleasant but was seated in a corner while there were tables available elsewhere.

The disadvantage of saying that you have the best ribs in Colorado is that people will come in with high expectations. I admit that their ribs were very good. They say they get them in Denmark. But I also had some amazing rib dinners while in Colorado and taste buds are so subjective. Don't get me wrong...this was a great... More

Nothing in Aspen is inexpensive. But the closet to a value may be Hickory House. BBQ is good, with lots of options for the meat, sides, combinations, etc. Lots of people are seen leaving with a box of left-overs in hand. Draft beer by the pitcher adds to the value. Good outside seating to enjoy the atmosphere of Aspen. A... More

The food was good. Very plentiful so don't order too much if you can't take it with you. Issue: The bill came and it was correct. We gave the credit card and when we got the credit card slip to sign the amount was higher. The waiter apologized and took extra off. He said it was a mistake. I can't... More

We Went with several friends who love/liked the ribs. While they were here before, this visit just an OK in the ribs department I don't eat meat so there are alternatives for me-BarBQ sauce, onion rings and yes the Salmon was quite good. While beer is the natural choice here, a couple of us tried the Jalapeño Margarita and really... More
