First time here and it was wonderful. Though this restaurant sits right on RT 301 in Ellenton, you will drive by it. Go back. Almost everything is home made and it taste wonderful. I will say right off, that if you are in a rush - drive by, patience will be needed as again they are making your dinner right... More

I had dinner at Hickory Hollow a few evening ago. Fabulous selection of barbeque and sides. All four of us ordered different dinners and everyone raved about their choices. Can't wait to travel back to Bradenton so I can return.

Today again I visited Hickory Hollow in Ellenton. Not the easiest place to find because it's west off of I 75 on 301. My favorite part of this restaurant is the fact that they have over 20 fresh vegetables every day. Today I had collard greens and snap peas they were both great. I usually order the chicken when I'm... More

We were entertaining guests from Texas and they wanted to sample our barbecue. The obvious location was Hickory Hollow Barbeque. The food is terrific, the portion sizes are ample, the pricing is favorable, just bring cash because they don't take charges. If the selection of entrees isn't enough then the 30 plus choices of side items will certainly please anyone.... More

The place is a typical simple BBQ place. It turned me off that they do not accept check, or any kind of cards debit or credit. The food was good pulled pork sandwich and a baby back ribs. The downside was that the ribs and the pulled pork are supposed to be warm and not room temperature which realy downgraded... More

YUM! Super tender ribs, good slam and delicious baked beans. They have a ton of sides; will try others next time (SOON). Beer was icy cold and service good. The lack of ambiance is more than made up for by the excellent food.
