Fantastic Dinner

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!

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.
