Smoked Meat--Oh Yeah!!

I think their smoked meat is among the best I have ever eaten--Often stop on my way home and buy a slab or sandwiches. The ribs are meaty and the sandwiches stacked with delicious smoked meat. Excellent choice-whether drive thru or eat in.

This restaurant is home town owned and the best for a non-chain BBQ food choice. We eat here often and are never disappointed.

Tried the platter. A ton of food. Ribs were okay, some parts meaty and some parts like leather. Beef brisket was excellent. Beans were tasty, sauce is on the sweeter side. The fries had a crispy coating. Toasted bread was good (was fresh). Condiments were a plus (pickles, onions, jalapeños...) Service was fast, food came in a matter of minutes.... More

Great accommodations, very friendly server. Clean, with a lot of choices. For us, BBQ is all about sauces, and their "intrepid" sauce is a great option. Come early on Friday evening, as it fills up fast. We had their two meat combo (ribs and pulled pork) and the meat was perfectly cooked, although another rib would have been nice. A... More

We started to stop in Kansas City for BBQ but while traveling with 3 kids it would have been pricey...so glad we waited. Hickory Hut is small and not fancy on the outside..but the food makes up for it on the inside. Rib dinner was awesome (menu said 4 ribs but there were about 7 on the plate) . My... More

Hickory Hut has great BBQ. My favorites are their ribs and baked beans. They serve all the traditional BBQ fare as well, but their ribs and beans are a real treat.

The burnt ends sandwich is my favorite and amazing! We have eaten here dozens of times and never have had a problem! One or two of us always get the half chicken and the other almost always gets the sausage...everything is great we just have our regukar favorite. Coleslaw is very good and the pickle and extra sauce top everything... More

We left I-70 and drove 3 miles south to Salina, just to eat at the Hickory Hut. The BBQ sandwiches are that good. The fries are also great. The building looks faded and worn, but don't let that stop you from eating here. The Hickory Hut gets yearly awards and the staff is helpful and friendly. The entire restaurant, including... More

Just passing through Salina so thought I would try this place. Great ribs with lots of locals eating there. The rib dinner came with 4 very meaty ribs along with baked beans and potato salad. Very good.
