Yummy ribs!!

Best ribs. We get the Memphis dry rub - moist and fall off the bone and great flavor!!! Great collard greens. We always get the half onion loaf - super delicious dressing comes with it - we dream about it!! You will not be disappointed!!!

Hickory Hog is our favorite place at the NJ shore. Prompt seating, convenient liquor store next door, reasonable parking space. Had the baby back ribs and brisket combo and the cheddar ale soup, which is a must-have. Attentive, friendly service. We like that sides are included in the combo, which is not the case at some other BBQ places.

Every time I've gone there, I'm not disappointed. The onion loaf is awesome & the ribs are fall off the bone delicious. It's kind of tucked inside a corner storefront & if you didn't know it was there, you could miss it. That's the only negative for someone unfamiliar to the area.

Ribs and sweet potato fries are both excellent. Atmosphere is a bit lacking, but it IS a barbeque joint. Service was quick and the price was great.

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
