“Not so Good !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2011

My wife and I have eaten here a few times but the food seems to be getting worse. I ordered the special one weekend which was beef ribs that tasted like liver. My wife ordered chicken fried steak and it tasted as if the grease they used was a year old. We don't eat here any more.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

We were visiting the Houston area for a few days from Florida and stopped at Hickory Hollow. Wow, the food was awesome! We had a big party so we tried a little bit of everything...ribs, brisket, sausage, chicken fried steak, and so on. We weren't dissapointed with any of it. The atmosphere is great for families and the food arrived within a very reasonable amount of time. Prices were very good too. We will be back!

“Great Chicken Fried Steak - Need Work on the Gravy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2011

The chicken fried steak was great, especially the crunchy crust. They need work on the cream gravy. Maybe I had been spoiled by my mom's home cooking. Once they get the gravy in line, it will be the best chicken fried steak in Texas.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2010

This restaurant was near our B+B and was brilliant. Good food, good portions, good price and wonderful friendly, helpful staff. I left my handbag there and they had phoned the B+B before we got back! Honest people too! Thank you staff. My only regret was that we did not get the chance to go back again, Try this place and you won't be disappointed!
