I think they just might be! Had the baby back ribs and they were excellent, cooked perfectly with their house made BBQ sauce. Sides that were good: baked potato, beans, onion rings. Sides that were not so good: Cole slaw, just mediocre. Rustic atmosphere, excellent service. Would return! By the way: most inexpensive dinner we had in Aspen!

Hickory House is an institution of classic good barbeque. We went for the whole rack of ribs, potato salad and slaw (skipped the toast). The sides were mom-style tasty and also ample. Drinks are poured in 20 oz giant cups loaded with ice. The ribs are tender, and truly baby back, and fell off the bone Extra sauce is on... More

We ate here with our family and really enjoyed the ribs and brisket. The place was busy, and the waitstaff was still very attentive and friendly! Very reasonably priced.

Our children were in town they wanted to go here again, after being at this restaurant about 5 years ago. Located outside of the city proper, this log cabin designed restaurant is great. Their ribs were noted by Oprah many years ago as the best she had ever had. (I think she is right)! We all had the Pulled Pork... More

We have a group dinner (30 of us) at Hickory House after hiking in Maroon Bell trail. The tables were setup when we arrived 10 minutes earlier. We have family style set menu, the Field green salad was delicious and plenty of food for everyone. The baby back ribs are smaller than expected, but very tasty. The chicken is tender... More

NY strip steak was delicious, chicken strips were good and burger was also good but the ribs were on small size and were dry - not sure if I got a bad batch...but definitely not worthy of "best in Colorado" title. Service was friendly and prompt.

I would have missed this but for the recommendations of New York friends. So glad I went -- yummy yummy BBQ (I had the chicken) and fresh French fries. Friendly, casual atmosphere.

We ordered from the Hickory House, had it delivered to our hotel, and it arrived before an hour had passed. The BBQ chicken had a light smokey flavor and was not dry. The baked beans, slaw, and potato salad were flavorful and scrumptious. Us Texans are pretty picky about BBQ and the likes, but this joint does an awesome job!

Good service. Ribs were tender and tasted awesome. I had the Southern Fried Catfish and loved it. Better value here than most places in Aspen.
