Friendly waitress made things better

Went there to be with friends for a Christmas get-together. It's the Christmas Season so the only time available was for Brunch. It worked out wonderfully. The food was very good and plentiful, good serving size. The waitress took good care of us. She was able to handle the large group, served... read more

If you're in Campbell, CA and you're looking for a great breakfast, good steaks, and the BEST Ribs around you need to hit the Hick'ry Pit on Campbell Ave. There's parking!! It's a friendly place with great servers, wonderful comfort food and pie ala mode for dessert! We had the ribs and they were out a sight delicious! What a... More

They used to serve large Barbecue sandwiches but not any longer. Ordered and was still hungry after I ate. Lots of bread small amount of meat. Looking for a great barbecue place. It seems like restrants are cutting back on amounts they give you but rising the cost. If any one knows a great place let me know.

My family has been eating Sunday breakfast at least twice a month here for the last five years. They have a large area in the back with movable tables and chairs that can accommodate parties up to 60 guests. The omelets are large and delicious. They make a chili verde omelet that I love. Their biscuits and gravy and chicken... More

Good ribs and BBQ sauce. I like to try different meats with the sauce and great to dip french fries into. Sides are OK as well. Service though is lacking.

Full slab of ribs was ultra-meaty and not drowned in BBQ sauce. Ribs have a great smoked taste. Some might not like the lack of BBQ sauce on the ribs, but I'd rather dip my my own. These ribs are served dry with a side of sauce. Kid's-size ribs order is perfect for an 11-year-old. The six-year-old loved the cheese... More

We had a reunion with some of my wife's relatives at this restaurant on busy Campbell ave. This is a stand alone restaurant near the Pruneyard shopping center, but all by itself. Faded exterior painted wooden surfaces, that had been weathered for too long -perhaps since the 1950s! Entering the restaurant is like going back in time -way back to... More

I ordered the Original Ribs, junior portion. They were on the dry side, and the sides were just okay. The cole slaw enough for two.

Had dinner at the Hick'ry last night and was truly disappointed. I went for the rib combo. The Original ribs were almost a greenish shade of grey. Edible but barely. The St Louis ribs were much better but still got to just about average. Really liked the Slaw, but the beans and corn left a lot to be desired. The... More

I mostly get breakfast here and that's bacon and eggs. The bacon is thick cut and very tasty. They give you a huge amount of hash browns. I can also recommend the biscuits and gravy, the French dip (although I'm not crazy about the Dutch crunch roll) and their pork chops! Most of the meats are smoked and you can... More
