We went on a Sunday evening. They only had a few other customers, yet service on drinks was fairly slow. The food was good BBQ, however, the waiter brought me three sides instead of two and two of the three were the wrong sides. Then my mother-in-law ordered a steak cooked medium and it came out rare. Although they took... More

For a small town it's really good. Worth your time. We got the ribs and were very happy with them. Neat old building. You get plenty of food. We would definitely stop again.

Upon arrival, we asked if it was too crowded for us to eat there, as we only had an hour for lunch. They assured us that would be OK. We waited 10min for a menu, and another 50min for our food. Unacceptable.

Had 1 meat with ribs platter. No pork remaining so had brisket with ribs. Brisket was ok/pleasant, but ribs were quite tender, juicy, and hot. They were the highlight of the meal. The cole slaw was ok, kinda sweet and overly creamy for my taste. However, the broccoli, carrot, mixed steamed vegetable dish was really good and a welcome change... More

Traveling through Auburn, NE on our way home from Omaha. The local gas station recommended the Hickory Road BBQ in downtown Auburn. Nice funky decor. Comfortable seating. Several half booths, table, seating at the bar and one high table top with seating for 2 by the front window (perfect to watch the traffice pass by). The service was good but... More
