“Good stop for quick food after a trip to the Mercer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We stopped on a rainy afternoon for an early dinner. The place was empty at the early hour, but we had great food. Starting with the fried pickles followed by a burger and turkey sandshich.

“Smokin' to perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

The brisket and pulled pork are just wows in this modest cafe, that gets crowded at lunch. Fun service and great food ... what else would you want?

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

Let me start off by saying that my inlaws live in Texas and we go down there quite a lot and never pass up BBQ. With that said, hickory kitchen is comparable. We usually share the 3 way platter, which comes with 2 sides and a biscuit. All the meats are delicious. While the sides are good, we have been disappointed in the portion sizes. It seems like everytime we go, the sizes get smaller. The only complaint I have of this place is that the BBQ sauce they use is a little too sweet. Oh and don't forget to try their fried pickles! Best I've found in doylestown.

“Great variety in a small restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Great sandwich and tasty extras; lots of variety for a small place. Priced right. Owner/manager has designed the menu and built the recipes, takes orders and his able assistant whips up the food. Simple, quick, and tasty.

“Vegetarian Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

The mention of vegetarian fare got me in the door and they do have a nice selection. I had Brigitte's Vegetable Wrap and it was good. The place is small, friendly, efficient and has good vibes. I would return.
