Good food - BYOB

Great BBQ. Excellent ribs. We stop here each time that we visit the beach. No beer or wine served; but the is a well stocked beer/wine store attached. If needed, a bottle opener and glasses are provided by our server. We will return.

Went there for lunch. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich and I had a brisket sandwich. Both ordered garlic mashed potatoes in lieu of fries and also ordered a shared side of beans. Must say that both meat selections could easily be more than duplicated by purchasing ready packaged pulled pork and brisket at BJ's warehouse. We both agreed... More

To me, this is the best BBQ in NJ. This is run by my favorite BBQ place that burned burn about 15 years ago from what I understand. Love their fall off the bone baby back ribs as well as their onion loaf! It's a small plain type of place. Went on a Sunday night & there was no line.... More

This is the Number Two Rated Restaurant in Point Pleasant, and when I visited with a large group six months ago, I wrote a glowing review. I said that I looked forward to returning, but in six months... I did not. Last week personal business brought me back to Point Pleasant, and I decided to try the competition, who happens... More

This is a great place for ribs, BBQ, etc. Being from North Carolina, I can say that this is probably the closest thing to real "Southern BBQ" that you can get around here. The food is always good and the staff is always smiling and nice. Convenient location in the same building as Gerard's Wine and Spirits. Grab a six... More

I had rib combo platter Great taste cooked perfectly. Took home 1/2 of my dinner. Big portions. My wife had chicken and it was also excellent. Clean and family friendly. Best ribs I have had since Kansas City

A nice clean restaurant that is consistent every time. Our grandchildren's favorite place to go! Liquor store is right next door if the adults want to buy wine or a six pack. Also good for a take out dinner.

Great place, casual BYOB. Ribs are to die for. Connected to a fantastic liquor store for easy purchases

Friends had been telling us about The Hickory Hog for some time and we finally went there today. Inside, the decor is zilch, but I have been in restaurants whose decor is gorgeous but whose food is not worth eating. The food at the Hickory Hog is well prepared and well presented. Yes, it can be messy, but, hey, we're... More

We own at the shore and have probably dined here more than anywhere in the past five years. BYOB, excellent food and service, casual atmosphere. Always delicious with no complaints about anything. After being told there was a 45 minute wait at Spano's on a Saturday, we took the short drive to Hickory Hog and sat right down. The liquor... More
