“Really Good Place !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

For a small town it's really good. Worth your time. We got the ribs and were very happy with them. Neat old building. You get plenty of food. We would definitely stop again.

“Great food for a moderate price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Upon arrival, we asked if it was too crowded for us to eat there, as we only had an hour for lunch. They assured us that would be OK. We waited 10min for a menu, and another 50min for our food. Unacceptable.

“Ribs !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Had 1 meat with ribs platter. No pork remaining so had brisket with ribs. Brisket was ok/pleasant, but ribs were quite tender, juicy, and hot. They were the highlight of the meal. The cole slaw was ok, kinda sweet and overly creamy for my taste. However, the broccoli, carrot, mixed steamed vegetable dish was really good and a welcome change from the sugar/carb side choices. A really welcome travel stop relative to fast food chains.

“Worth a stop when traveling through Auburn, NE.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

Traveling through Auburn, NE on our way home from Omaha. The local gas station recommended the Hickory Road BBQ in downtown Auburn.
Nice funky decor. Comfortable seating.
Several half booths, table, seating at the bar and one high table top with seating for 2 by the front window (perfect to watch the traffice pass by).
The service was good but stressed. It appeared she had the entire place to wait herself.
Two of us shared the ribeye steak, another had the recommended special of the day country fried chicken steak, and the fourth had the beef fajuita. All the meals were good. The steak fries great. The coldslaw ok. The corn on the cob was water logged and almost not hot enough to melt the butter. The bread good. The taco chips and dip were better than average to excellant. Portions were very nice.
Overall the pricing was a couple of dollars high for each plate but otherwise a good deal./meal. Would we stop again. YES!
