“Good Value for real BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We eat at Hickory River about once a month. We always get carryout and order the Family Meal. We get two different choices of meat (we get the sliced brisket and pulled pork), a side of ranch beans, coleslaw and potato salad plus cornbread. For a little over $30.00 we have dinner plus leftovers for lunch. It's a good deal. The BBQ is smoked on site and is great!
We've also had the turkey which was very good as well.
Good food for a good price. Definately worth a try!

“Award winning pulled pork”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Excellent smoked barbecue. Order the brisket or pulled pork, you won't be disappointed. The loaded pulled pork nachos are awesome. Food is served cafeteria style and the atmosphere is casual and family friendly. Lots of specials throughout the week. If you are just passing through or want to take your meal home, you can go through the drive through. They also offer meat by the pound, perfect for parties and get togethers. Tired of mediocre chain food? Then this is the place for you.

“Tasty pork”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Nice size sandwich that tasted pretty good. Cafeteria style lacks charm but the restaurant can process a lot of customers quickly. Good place for tour buses to stop.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Never had a bad meal from here. We've never eaten in, but have had carry-out many times. The brisket and pulled pork are delicious. They offer 3 sauces, hot, medium, and mild. The potato salad is very good, the slaw not so much. This is also a favorite, much requested business lunch provider. For large groups, their "Businessman's Lunch" is a wonderful deal.
