Nice hole in the wall and great eats!

Grabbing a quick bite. What a surprise. The food was excellent and great portions. The specials were actually something you'd want to eat. The staff were friendly funny and witty. They have take out orders to!

Friends and I went here for some takeout on a Saturday evening. Thought we would try a new place. What a mistake. We thought the service was bad. That was nothing compared to the food we opened when we got home. The mac and cheese had all kinds of nasty brown buts in it. The cheese sauce obviously broke. The... More

Jennifer B, Thank you for your feedback, I am appreciative that you took the time to communicate your experience. As you can see from other Trip Advisor reviews, we have an excellent track record over 5 years of service to the community. We work very hard everyday to please all of our customers, so it is quite disappointing when we... More

Great service, friendly staff, and decent price (especially in an area where prices are inflated). The pulled pork is excellent!

Love this place, especially the pulled pork sandwich with the house sauce...yum. We eat here often as we live down the street and I haven't had a bad meal yet. If you haven't tried the cornbread or corn-bread pancakes with REAL maple syrup, you are in for a treat. Or the fries with that special seasoning?! I could go on....... More

This was the ONE restaurant we tried out of all that Doylestown offers, and it was just eh. Ordering took a long time because the cashier didn't know how to use the register. The food took a long time to get to us. The bbq was fine but not amazing. The lemonade on tap was very watered down. The waitress... More

My wife and I just moved to D-town and have been slowly checking out the local flavor. We stepped in for a late lunch today and were extremely happy with EVERYTHING! The aromas made our mouths water, the Cali-Burger was perfect and my wife's GF Wrap was amazing! To top it all off, the owner, Mike, was a gracious host... More

good BBQ sandwiches here, especially for not being in the south. i luv to come here for the food, a little hard to be comfortable in the seating area-really just for a quick bite. If it is nice weather, you should go across the street to the park.

We stopped in for a quick bite to eat. Although they were closing up the manager agreed to serve us. I was surprised how tasty my meal was. I ordered the bbq pork while my husband ordered ribs. We both agreed we have to go back.

Most everything was closed in Doylestown. We saw the reviews for Hickory Kitchen and went in. This is a quaint little place with friendly people and good food. My wife and I split the special "heat wave" and a side of kitchen cornbread. We enjoyed every bite. The sandwich was our favorite. It had pulled pork, hot sausage and bacon.... More

I love this place! Hometown feel, best made to order breakfast you could ask for. Great service and wonderful owners! I love having my coffee in a real mug! The smoked brisket is smoked right on premises and if you know BBQ it is the most difficult to get perfect...they know how to make it right....14 hour smoke...best brisket and... More
