Terrific BBQ

Four of us stopped in and found the staff so friendly and helpful. Not overbearing but just the right amount of attention to insure your well taken care of. We sat in the bar area which I personally love. We ordered several menu items. I had the smoked chicken, man the perfect smokey taste, moist... read more

We have been stopping here for years. Whether it is on the way home from a ski trip or kinda (ok, a lot) out of the way from outlet shopping, we love every meal. Every detail is well thought out, from the metal bucket light fixtures, to the towel napkins, it feels like a real authentic BBQ joint. Family run,... More

Texans are fussy about their barbecue so I was a little suspicious to try it. I am so glad I did! The food was excellent and clearly homemade. The staff were very friendly and a delight to be around. The restaurant is rustic but clean and cozy. I would recommend it to all discriminating barbecue lovers.

They are okay, not a real bbq place as far as I am concerned. They are also out of most things I have been there 3 times since they opened and I do not find them to be impressive at all. The staff is not even around most of the time. The nachos were good and the food was just... More

We were there on Thurs night with 35 bridal party guests. One server - inadequate. Two groups of four shared Hickory's Barbecue Feast - Sampling of Our House Smoked Meats and Sausages with a Choice of Four Sides. Generous portions of meat, tiny portions of sides. Awful. Overcooked. Slow. Other guests in party were finished before we were served. Got... More

Stopped here to meet up with family. My brother had been here before and recommended it. We sat in the bar area, seeing as the dining room was being worked on. Lots of sports memorabilia on the walls. My brother loved that. The bartender waited on us, was very friendly and was quick to refill drinks, etc. We ordered the... More

My son & I drove by HICKORY on our way to a meeting in Woodstock; we both thought "oh, let's go back this way to have lunch". The first thing you will notice at a real BBQ is the smell of smoke; we got a good whif when we got out of the truck in their parking lot. At 1:30... More
