The Hickory Kitchen is my go to place when I need a full meal or to supplement a meal I am making at home for company. I have used their services many times and the results are consistently excellent! This time I have ordered 4 full racks of ribs and 1/2 pan of their cornbread to go with a my... More

Every time I'm in downtown doylestown I make a stop here. Why? They have home made applesauce, and sweet potato casserole, as well as the best gluten free hamburgers. Everything is fresh, the staff is nice, and I never have to worry about hidden ingredients that will haunt me later. My family has eaten the pulled pork wit the fries... More

We've been meaning to try out the Hickory Kitchen for a while now, and finally did. The food was all pretty fantastic. The fries were some of the best we've ever had. The Ribs were good, but if you don't like a very smokey flavor, they might not be for you. The pulled pork was excellent. Everyone else loved the... More

I wouldn't consider it a great BBQ place. The ribs were good but seem to have a dry rub on them. THey were flavorful and tender but if you got a mouthful of rub it was quite grainy in texture. I personally thought the cole slaw was bland. IT did appear homemade. THe other 3 people in the group really... More

While strolling through picturesque Doylestown we were in need of a snack and smelled BBQ. We ordered a pulled pork sandwhich and and order of wings and were very happy. The sandwhich had good smoky flavor and a good amount of pork with just the right chew. The wings were tender and tasty and a great canvas to sample their... More

Was not expecting much from a BBQ place in Doylestown. Big surprise. Not only do they have the usual BBQ items, but they also have a great vegetarian menu (about 1/2 my party was vegetarian). And everyone commented that they really enjoyed their meal. I had the half rack of ribs with bean and collard greens and a corn muffin.... More

Food is usually ok. I wish dtown had another bbq place to compete maybe they would step up their game. Usually don't buy cookied but the one they make look really good. The only recommendation I can make is get a different oven to bake the cookies. They taste good at first but then you get a strong brisket taste.... More

Service was slow and confused. The BBQ ribs we got were not fresh and were served cool in temperature--they appeared to be left over from the night before and were just micro-waved for serving--we had to take them back to the counter for warming. As an aside it lacks the atmosphere of a BBQ establishment.

BBQ is one of my favorite foods. I've enjoyed it in Texas and Tennessee among other places. However, I had a great platter at Hickory Kitchen, which is much closer to my current location. Tried the brisket with sides of beans and cole slaw and a biscuit. The brisket was fork tender and smokey good. The brisket featured both the... More

After reading the reviews in TripAdvisor, Hickory Kitchen was on our list to try their Smoked BBQ Meats in our quest to find a great BBQ Joint. When we walked through the door the aroma of the smoked meat was promising, we liked the simple layout of the place, and the servers were very nice. I ordered the smoked pulled... More
