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!

Pulled pork, pulled chicken and so much more are the types of delicious and fresh barbecue you'll find at Hickory Kitchen, located in Doylestown, PA. My son enjoyed his pulled pork so much that we ended up buying another one for the road (for later). I enjoyed their burger, which one one of the best I've had in a long... More

This restaurant has yet to disappoint. Its menu is actually quite broad for a BBQ place with comprehensive veggie options as well. I won't say it's on par with North Carolina, Memphis or Kansas City, but when you eat here it means you're not in Carolina, Memphis or Kansas City, so grab the next best thing! If local and hankering... More

The food is good here. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and the flavor of the barbecue. Would definitely eat here again if I were back in the area. They serve their food on an aluminum cookie sheet which is quaint. Stop in you will enjoy it.

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
