BREAKFAST IS BEST!

The place is in need of a physical overhaul -- especially the booths -- but once you get over that you can have a great breakfast with oversized homey biscuits. They also serve tasty lunch and dinner platters/sandwiches but the side dishes are a little skimpy, especially cole slaw. What you get... read more

We were upset with the owner and worker changing a light figure with customers and dust falling around a elderly woman and others. We spoke with the manager..he apologized and compted the food....

I like this place, I like the staff and I have always liked their food. Unfortunately I should agree the appearance of the place has kept the same standard for decades, which makes one feel confident their focus is on the food. The food is good, although the portion size seems to have gotten smaller over the recent years. The... More

Probably the worst BBQ I've had in years. Dry meats, ribs needed to cook another 30 minutes, sauce was nothing special, and greasy breads. Great Brunswick stew and good service. Place needs a cleaning and updated.

I used to stop by here when I lived in Atlanta 20 years ago. That being said the place still looks the same, except well worn. The food was good, but not what it was.

Not many Old Hickory Houses left. This one is old and in need of updating as there are obvious signs of wear. However can also see this as maybe "rustic". Also needs more attention to cleanliness though I'm not too particular about that. Food was very good. I had vegetable plate and wife had grilled chicken breast. All was very... More

Not your average barbeque joint. The food is great and they have a wide variety of sides daily. They have a great breakfast too.

Ate at Old Hickory House all the time as a kid and since we were in the area after 25+ year absent, I wanted to give it a try again. I was actually surprised the Old Hickory House was still around, they have been in this same place for 40+ years. BBQ sandwich and Brunswick stew are still top notch... More
