Orders are placed at the counter and then brought to your table. There's a decent selection and the food was good. BUT, I thought the cook seemed a little frazzled and annoyed when I asked if they had bagels. We also waited a good 30 minutes for our food and there was no apology for the long wait. It wasn't...

Stopped in for lunch and were very pleased. Good food and friendly staff. Cornbread is amazing. Mac & Cheese a little bland, but everything else was tasty. Wish the sandwiches came with a side included instead of bag of chips. We would definitely go back though.

They have lunch down pat here. The hickory aroma hits you the minute you walk in. Quick, efficient service. Owners aim to please. Great buffalo chicken quesadilla, hot out of the oven and large enough to take some home. Equally good turkey club on a toasted roll. Add the fountain peach iced tea on a hot day and you'll be...

My boyfriend and I went for brunch. Upon walking in, the smell of delicious BBQ hits you. It's incredible. Since we came for breakfast, we didn't really get to try the BBQ but we will certainly be back for it. It's nice that it's BYOB. The staff were friendly. My boyfriend and I each had an omelette which were fresh... More

Stopped in with family of 3. The brisket was great. The cornbread was outstanding. The bbq sauce selection was also great. I would definitely come back here.

I am in no way a foodie so the food here was a bit fancy for my taste. I had pork bbq (meat was good) but I didn't like the sauce. The colt slaw and beans were just okay. Biscuit amazing. Then staff was nice and the tables were all full.

The black bean burger is outstanding as well as the pulled pork and chicken. Good place to get your BBQ fix

Great little bbq place in Doylestown. Went with some friends on a weekend evening and there were not many people eating inside. The interior is more reminiscent of a small cafe than a fully functioning restaurant. You order at the counter, take a seat and they bring out your meal. The pulled chicken sandwich is awesome. Everyone had a good... More

Since becoming gluten-free, going out to lunch has become a challenge. Problem solved at the Hickory Kitchen! The day I was there they had a black bean burger wrap daily special. I asked for a gluten free wrap. It was fabulous! I'm not exaggerating. Fabulous!
