We had the best meal here with plenty on your plate for the money. The staff are very friendly and the service is second to none. A must eat house.

On this visit I tried the smoked turkey dinner and a delightful glass of pumpkin cider. Once again, a delightful and memorable dinner.

My husband had their pulled pork sandwich at this facility as well as at the one in Steeleville. Interesting that this one came on Texas toast and the other on a hoagie. His meal here had regular old potato chips but at the facility in Steeleville he got home made potato chips. I ordered a baked potato and kept it... More

This place is worth a stop even if you don't eat. The building is a treasure. The folks are glad to show you around and share the history of the initial building and the additions that have been added over the years. They even have pictures showing the phases of restoration. There is also a large exhibit of old tools... More

Stopped here both times while travelling Route 66. The food is superb and brought us back the second time around. I really appreciate the style of this building inside and out, and the wait staff really adds to the 'down home' feel. They also offer their various bottled sauces for sale and we definitely took some home. This eatery is... More

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions, either by ourselves or with friends or family. Always an out standing meal was served. When our family comes to visit and want BBQ this is the place they ask to be taken.

While out and about in the area recently we stopped here for lunch as a party of 7. They were easily and quickly able to accommodate us in the upstairs area. The amount of sides here to choose from slightly sits this place apart from other BBQ restaurants. Meal was reasonably priced and served fairly quickly. We have heard rave... More

Off highway 44 in a small town called Cuba is a most unexpected treat! We saw the signs and decided to give it a try. Best pulled pork, best ribs, best tri tip, I have ever eaten! Perfectly cooked, tasty and nicely presented. Oh, and a great selection of sauces to chose from too. I can recommend the green beans... More

So I was figuring I'd be out of luck for food as a vegetarian in MO. but Hicks was right next to our Motel and i didn't feel like driving. There was no need to worry, they set me up with some REALLY great mac and cheese. My husband was equally pleased with his BBQ. PS the mac and cheese... More

Thank you for taking the time to respond. We're glad you enjoyed everything! For vegetarians, you can also order the stuffed portobello mushroom and get it without the sausage and bacon inside! Keep that in mind if you're ever in the area again. Thanks for visiting! More
