The meat is smoked on site. If you don't smell it before you walk in you will know it when you walk in the door. This is the real thing. The breakfast is exceptional. A local favorite.

Good at hickory house is okay. Typical chain type bbq. We'll go back for the convenience, but we have more favorite spots in town.

A good very local place. Friendly staff. Breakfast good as are lunch and dinner. Have BBQ which is good. Also have nice assortment of vegetables which I usually order and enjoy. Carpets look worn and need to be replaced.

New to the area, and this place is close to our new home. Stopped in for dinner on Sunday eve. Not fancy by any means.... more like an old-school diner. Service was very friendly and helpful. Kitchen could have been a bit faster. Roasted 1/2 chicken: very good. Brunswick stew: excellent (full disclosure, this was the first time I have... More

Had vegetable plate for lunch today. Had BBQ the other day. Both are good but not great. A very local place with a good local following. Casual atmosphere that doesn't look the cleanest or best but that when way. That is the way good local Q places look. Staff friendly and service is prompt.

When you want a nice country breakfast that makes you think of your grandma, this is the place. As far as lunch and dinner, the food is good but Breakfast is a MUST!! You get more that you can eat and it's cheap!!! SOO GOOD!!!

A distant 1 out of 10 this week for this overrated spot in Dunwoody. Nothing exciting at all yet good spot for those on the very very tight budget. Not for a regular, everyday dining spot at all.

Good breakfast. You get the feeling that many folks go there every day. As you'd expect, they usualy BBQ sandwiches, platters, etc... Service is usually fast and attentive.
