May try again some day

We could have just been there on a bad night but the service was super slow, our brisket sandwich were full of fat and the waitress hardly ever came by our table even to see if we needed refills on our drinks. If we are in the area we may try again but our first visit was definitely disappointing.

Arived on a rainy afternoon. PArking on stree is close. I walked in anthe the bartender could tell "I was treated with decent service but no attempt to make me feel welcome. The brisket was very good-better than anything in the South. The ribs were excellant-meaty, with lots of flavor and little or no fat. The beans are a bit... More

We were very surprised by this place. The setting is clean and inviting, with booths, tables, and a bar area with big screen TVs. The service is friendly and attentive, the sauces (especially the spicy sweet one) are excellent, and the meats are very good. Our favorites were the pulled chicken and the brisket. The pulled pork was OK, but... More

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

We ate here one recent Monday evening. It looks like a typical bar, and we were somewhat hesitant at first. But, it also had historical charm. The food was actually quite good. My wife had a 1/2 rack of ribs, and the was tender and flavorful. I ordered a brisket sandwich. The meat seemed to be a little less brisket... 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
