Family Meal provided a good value. Sides were quite good- Cole Slaw, Beans and Grilled Vegetables. Half Chicken and Brisket were moist and tasty. Unfortunately the Rack of Ribs were overlooked and uneventful. All in all a clean, friendly place in a great location. We will definitely try again.

We happened upon the Hickory Kitchen by chance. It was very fairly priced craft food in an unpretentious deli setting. I would definitely stop here again.

Well, we were looking for a good vegetarian restaurant in Doylestown and found this. She had the vegetable soup which was almost a stew. She liked it and the other vegetarian offerings; I, and her husband had the pulled chicken and pulled pork respectively. We liked them all. Usually I prefer my barbecue cooked in the sauce, but they had... More

This is a restaurant based on southern food! It's moderately priced and does a huge business upon the locals and visitors alike! The food is good and atmosphere friendly for lunch and dinner, stop by and enjoy some Southern hospitality!!

My friend & I stopped here for lunch after visiting the art museum in town. We both enjoyed a delicious pumpkin bisque & I added a spinach & portobello salad which was fresh & very tasty. I had enough to take some home for later that evening. Great spot & attentive staff.

We were really expecting some great Bbq based on the reviews, but it was just okay. The service was great and prices were reasonable. The pulled chicken lacked flavor and the ribs were full of fat. The macaroni and cheese was kinda cold and bland. The highlight of the meal was the cornbread which was delicious! It's a byob which... More
