Excellent cuisine!!

Love, love, love this place. First, this place has the best sandwiches, delicious sides, and to die for soups. Not trying to be over dramatic, but Hatch is that good. Oh, and a Second which is the best part, Hatch has a big heart. These guys are very community oriented. Go visit!!!

The sandwiches at hatch are really tasty and BIG. If I eat the whole thing sometimes it is a bit much for me. The side veggies are yummy usually with a rich sauce , again good and filling. The place is small but I like the community feel. I usually see someone I know when I go there. Take out... More

Delicious lunch spot...go early for a seat...stays busy! Beautiful salads - this is not your everyday restaurant...lots of quality ingredients available...reminds me of a bistro in Charleston.

A friend and I chose to have lunch here between classes. It was awesome. Try the Turkey sandwich with avacado and bacon. It was so good!

Wonderful fresh food. Everything looked divine. Love the fact that local fresh food is used as much as possible.

Small sandwich shop downtown. They have vegetarian options and amazing pork belly items. Had the pork belly Reuben and my wife had a veggie number. Sides were great and the local craft beers were priced great and served cold. Not frozen, but cold. We liked it a lot. Love local shops like this.

After reading prior reviews, we were anxious to give Hatch a try. Disappointed in attitude of young woman taking orders -"we don't have ice" (say what?); also, she never bothered to ask if we wanted chips or greens with our sandwiches, needless to say, got horrible out of the bag chips. Water was available but it was lukewarm, as was... More

Maybe the high ratings for Hatch are relative to the quality of offerings in Hickory. Because when put up against most of the sandwich places I've visited they do NOT deserve a 5 star rating. From the stuffy tight quarters to the aloof staff this visit was anything but a bright spot on our visit to Hickory for the day.... More

Great local restaurant owned by 2 creative young guys. I've been with my wife quite a few times and have been impressed every time. Unique quality ingredients, some from the local farmers' market in season, and dishes you can't find anywhere else around. This is a restaurant that belongs in a big city, but Hickory is lucky enough to claim... More

These guys make the best sandwiches!! Pulled pork grilled cheese with avocado is my favorite. They have specials in the spring and summer with food purchased at the farmers market. Don't miss eating here!
