Food was good. The ribs are good. Cole slaw was excellent. The beans were just average. Service was disappointing. Was seated outside by dogs in restaurant area. Bathrooms were filthy.

I went to Hickory House two years ago. Good service, tasteless food. Very popular, though, it is cheap..but if you do not pour all souces on the food, it will taste like nothing. Then I decided to give a second chance and went again, couple of weeks later ; same thing. I am very demanding with the taste of food... More

Our family has dined at the Hickory House on almost every visit to Aspen over many years. This place is a refreshing change from the glitzy restaurants (not that there is anything wrong with that) downtown, and is one of the more affordable places to get a good meal in town. The place with its unpretentious decor and good, simple... More

Our group of 10 adults in their 50s from TN was vacationing @ River Valley Ranch in Carbondale, CO when we drove to Aspen for breakfast 7/18/2016 before our 6+ mile hike in Hunter Creek/Smuggler Loop area. We got a late start for a hike, arriving at the restaurant about 7:50. We were surprised to learn that a place that... More

We got to Aspen late and asked the front desk for a recommendation. This is where he recommended and we were glad we went. The service was excellent, the BBQ was excellent, the cole slaw was excellent. (I don't recommend the potato salad.)

This is the last of the inexpensive locals spots in Aspen. The food is tasty, abundant, and inexpensive. Very casual environment for breakfast and dinner. Friendly and not for the 1%ers. Just enjoy and go with the pace of mountain life.

So went by the reviews and went to go check out this place. I have to begin that I feel bad for Colorado if this is the best they have. I'm from Texas and we pride ourselves on our bbq, but I have to say this wouldn't pass as bbq in Texas! The pulled pork was very bland, the brisket... More

Plenty of food! Loved the ribs! They were tender and tasty. We went with friends. The staff were friendly. They did get our meals a little mixed up but they eventually got it all straight and we all enjoyed our meal. I would go back!

Had ribs right after Aspen Marathon. Small but very tasty. Cole slaw very good, too. Half slab only $9.99.
