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

On a mountain in Phoenicia, NY a wonderful wedding recently took place. 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

This was my first trip there, and I have no intentions of going back. Server was very slow, brought us bread before we had napkins or utensils, I ordered water with lemon, no lemon was brought, also ordered side of ranch with my meal and had to ask one of the bus boys for it after our meal came out,...

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

The servers were great. But the slow cooked brisket was Terrible. Dried out and like leather. I don't believe they know what slow cooked means, its been my experience that slow cooked meats are very tender and normally never dried out. If you like tender meats this is definitely not the place. Terrible

We came here after visiting friends who love this place. Normally i am not a big fan of BBQ style restaurants, but I was very pleased. I went with the pork ribs which were very tasty and moist. Also had some very good pulled pork nachos. Initially I did not want to come here, but when I left I was... More

Decent Atmosphere with a friendly and fast wait staff. Ate there with a friend and he got the Atlantic Smoked Salmon which he said was very good and I got the "Legendary Chicken" which they said was smoked for two days. It was about $16 for a plate and the portion was very large. Was not able to finish it... More

We got takeout, three pulled pork on their own home baked flatbread, plus an order of onion rings, and one of hushpuppies. Perhaps not a fair assessment of the food, because we were taking it about 20 minutes away. By the time we bit into it, the flatbread was unpleasantly wet--almost slimy-- and the hushpuppies were dry. Onion rings good.... More

This place was great! Portions huge , prices reasonable, tap fresh, and staff very friendly! Biscuits and maple corn bread were delicious. We ordered the pulled pork nachos to start and they were incredibly tasty. I had the burger... huge portion and good. My boyfriend had the pulled pork platter... Delicious! And a nice crisp pitcher of beer, yum! After... More

I've been going to this low-key, family-style restaurant since it opened over a decade ago. The food is consistently good and the portions huge. Service is usually very good--the owners train local high school seniors as the wait staff. It's definitely the best value meal in the area. My favorites are the smoked turkey thighs and the smoked turkey salad.... More
