Ordered a brisket beef plate with French fries and salad bar -- less than $10.50 ... we were even able to share ... nice portion size. BBQ sauce very mild, which is how we prefer it ... meat very... read more

I used to live near the restaurant when I was a kid and it was always my favorite, the go to on my birthday. I still always get the chicken fried steak. But now I drive 35 miles for it. Worth it!

Hickory Hollow in Magnolia is a hidden treasure. Buried in a shopping strip by Brookshire Brothers, it is well worth the drive from wherever you are. The food is prepared fresh, fast, and it is delicious. Bring an appetite, because there's plenty.

I'm a big fan of CFS and Hickory Hollow's is one of the best! It comes in 3 sizes, but I've only ever had the appetite to try the smallest - and it's by no means small. They also serve a great hamburger steak with grilled onions. And the "chicken-fried" catfish is delicious as well. The staff is always very... More

Texas sized portions of barbeque, chicken fried steaks. Their largest chicken fried steak covers a platter and if you can eat it and two sides you get your picture on Facebook. If you have big appetite, this is your place. They also have entertainment, Cousin Buck Stonebroke when I was there, that makes it worth hanging around for a few... More

I am not a Texas BBQ expert. I had the three meat plate. Plenty of food. The ribs were good, the sausage interesting, the brisket was disappointing. Grilled zucchini is a pleasant surprise. The ambiance is picnic tables. The people are great.

As always, my husband and I rely on TripAdvisor for our out of town dining. We stopped in at Hickory Hollow around 8 PM on a weeknight and received decent service. We both enjoyed our meals, sliced beef sandwich with fries and a beef and sausage poboy with their hot tots. The meat was tender and had a good flavor,... More

If you are looking for a great place to have BBQ you have to try Hickory Hollow. I like the loose cut brisket, ribs, chicken, sausage! They have really good fried okra and mushrooms. I like the grilled zucchini. They have sweet tea, regular tea. Save room for pie!
