I always stop at this place when I'm passing through the area, as it is only about 4 miles off the Thruway on Rte. 28. If you were heading to the Catskill ski areas, it is right on your way. All the standard barbecued meats--pork, brisket, ribs--are consistently high quality, and the greens of the day (get the collards if... More

The atmosphere was what you'd expect from a BBQ joint. The menu was pretty basic. The food was good, not great. I think the prices were a little high for the quality and quantity. I really liked the corn bread and biscuits and the brisket was plentiful and tasted great heated up the next day. The wings were OK, but... More

The food was bountiful and delicious. This was our second time at Hickory BBQ and I am sure we will return again! We went in for lunch and there were maybe four other tables occupied in the whole restaurant, and a few people in the bar area. We asked at least three times for bread or rolls to let the... More

The food is great! The staff is very warm, friendly, and accommodating (especially if you have food allergies). It is a short drive to the town of Woodstock. You pass it after you get off of the NY State Thruway (Kingston exit) on your way to Woodstock. (It would be on the left hand side of Rt 28 when you... More

Crossposted to yelp... This is a big review, since wedding catering is no joke. Over a year ago we tried out Hickory as a potential wedding caterer for our wedding at Owls Hoot Barn in Coxsackie, around 40 minutes north of the restaurant. We'd loved our meal so we just went with them! I don't live in the area so... More

My husband and I were in the mood for some BBQ and had no idea that there was a BBQ place here in Kingston until we looked it up! We ordered over the phone and picked up our order. One half of the restaurant was pretty smokey and we were super glad we were getting our food to go. Ordered... More

Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri and traveling to Texas on business and pleasure gives me a good base from which to review BBQ establishments. Maybe even too much so. Is it fair to compare Hickory BBQ Smokehouse against what many consider to be the best around. Well...I've taken into consideration the location and other factors and initially thought... More

As the mother of the bride and living in Boston, I totally depended on Steve , the owner, to guide me through the catering / planning process.He was very patient and understanding. The pig roast BBQ at the wedding was absolutely fabulous!! The menu was well thought out... More

We dined in their restuarant, we loved their food and made the decision to have them cater our wedding. Steve the owner was available to answer any questions I had, he responded to my emails/phone calls in a very timely manner. He was very easy to work. He was very helpful and gave us lots of options for our budget.... More
