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

This place is great. I've never had anything but an awesome time when I visit, which unfortunately is not often enough! They do southern style, BBQ, and grill stuff, but they also offer salads and delicious vegetarian options. My favorite is Rachel's Quesadilla. Everyone that works there is friendly and knowlegable, and the owner Mike is very down to earth... More

I visit the Hickory Kitchen often and have never been disappointed by food quality or service. At lunch they can occasionally get backed up with crowds from jury duty at the courthouse. But it is always worth the wait. And the BBQ AND vegitarian fare is very tasty with diverse seasoning options.

I've been eating here on and off since they were Smokin' Lil's a few years ago. I don't know if I've grown tired, or they have, but the food just doesn't do it for me they way it used to. It's a very casual place, with limited service, so you don't go for the atmosphere or service. The food is... More

Saw this reviewed on TA and decided to give it a try for some take out. Had some ribs and a pulled pork sandwich with collared greens and sweet potatoes. They were really good. Nice and tender. The house sauce was great. Staff friendly. Few tables there for eating in which were clean and nice. Would go again for sure.

Four of us were looking for a different place for lunch. After checking tripadvisor we picked Hickory Kitchen. We had a time finding a parking place in Doylestown at lunch time. It was no trouble finding the resturant though. When you first enter you see a very simple place and it smells so good. You take a seat and then... More

Don't come here expecting fancy decor and contemporary fusion cuisine! DO come here if you want burgers or pulled pork sandwiches. You'll be greeted with a smile, you order at the cashier and they bring it to your basic metal table. Then you'll smile as the BBQ taste warms your stomach on a cold day.

I happened upon this place while visiting Doylestown. I'd chosen another restaurant from another trip advisor review and it was booked when we got there. So, I was a little grumpy when I got here (I'd just been looking for an upscale lunch) and from the moment we walked in man who took our order was genial and cheered me... More

Took my daughter and 3 college friends out to dinner. They chose the restaurant. Very informal. You order at the counter and then they deliver the food. Large menu with many vegetarian choices. While it was much less expensive than a regular table service restaurant in Doylestown, the burgers and sandwiches only come with a simple bag of chips. We... More

It's nice having a local BBQ offering in Doylestown. Just a bit pricey and the portions are sparse. Nice indoor or outdoor seating options.
