This place sharesa the same building as a discount liquor store so you can buy a six-pack on your way in or out. Either way, you'll enjoy the barbecue which is several cuts above the average chain.

We went on Fathers Day. It was obvious that the staff was not prepared for the continuing stream of people. The wait staff was tired as they told us. We waited 40 minutes for our dinner after waiting a 1/2 for seats. The ribs were not good. They were tired and looked they had been sitting awhile. The sweet potato... More

This was our second visit. First visit several months ago, I'd say was average, when I had the pulled pork sandwich. This visit, was a step backward. I had the pulled chicken cheddar wrap. It was mediocre, no real wood barbecue taste. The one barbecue sauce present at all the tables was bland, there are far better ones in the... More

After going to a bunch of chains in the area, this was recommended to us. We'll never go anywhere else. Ribs were awesome! The fried onion loaf was amazing as were the wings- kind of a grilled wing. Then with it being a BYOB, it's a bonus.

The franchises have nothing on "The Hickory Hog"! My wife and I order a Full Rack of St. Louis Ribs, with two sides. Right next door is Gerard's Liquors (Beer, Wine, Etc) and we stopped there first to bring some beverages with us. The ribs were awesome and more than each of us could eat. They had a really great...

I would only get the ribs here, everything else, to be honest is subpar compared to the ribs. Just get ribs and fried pickles.

Nothing fancy here, just "fall off the bone" tender baby back ribs. They may have other items on the menu, but our group zeroed in on the ribs.. and all four of us left happy! This place moved to Bridge Ave., and is co-located with a liquor store--how convenient, since it's a BYOB. Not a lot of atmosphere, but if... More

Really great BBQ but very pricey. If you are in the mood for BBQ, this is the best place around but be prepared to lighten your wallet.

The place has consistently great ribs! The key word is "consistent". A lot of places are good one time and so-so the next. This one is terrific every time. Great food, wonderful service. David
