Good food at Good Prices

Family restaurant with good food for sit in or quick and easy take out. Been going for a number of years and never disappointed. Chicken and all sides are quite tasty all at a reasonable price.

This place has fantastic chicken (I get the 1/4 chicken breast and leg), and all of their sides are great as well. Good food and you can get out for under 10 dollars as well.

Chicken was dry compared to some comments here... Mashpotatoes are not from fresh potatoes...is good for changing a little bit but not a favorite

I love bar-b-q but don't have the energy to fix it myself. Then one day, I discovered Hickory Roasters in Rolling Meadows, IL. Don't be misled by the outer appearance! This small, family-style restaurant sells half- and full-slab bar-b-q ribs that practically fall off the bone. The sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy. The cole-slaw has just...

The rotisserie chicken is very good and juicy. However, 2 roasted chickens and a few side dishes is over $30 Too expensive for chicken. Used to have very reasonable prices.

My coworker recommended this place. I now go there for carry-out dinners instead of buying the rotisserie chicken at Jewel or Meijer. It costs a dollar or two more but it is substantially better. There is a smokey taste and it was fresh out of the roaster.

The hickory chicken is very tasty and moist. Have had it several times. Garlic oven potatoes are also very good. My dad enjoyed the barbecue ribs.

We ordered this for Mother's Day this year and brought it home. We got the chicken and sides. The chicken was wonderful great tasting. The sides were just okay. I probably would not order them again if I were to go there. The people are very nice and the prices are reasonable. I will go back and try more items.

I used to go to this place all the time about 10 years ago when I worked in the area and always loved it and was happy to see it was still in business. The chicken was great and sides were good. I do remember they used to offer stuffing as a side but other than that it was great... More
