The baby back ribs were tender & meaty! Husband enjoyed the BBQ chicken, baked beans & fries. One of the best meals we've had arriving in CO! Iced tea was really good too. Service was excellent. They were busy for lunch, but they handle the crowd with efficiency.

Our server was very nice and helpful, but the food was completely underwhelming. Had baby back ribs, potato, salad. Would not return.

The wife wanted chicken, so after many searches in Aspen we ended up eating at the Hickory House. I can tell you that the chicken was good. It was fork tender and had a wonderful smoky flavor. Not as seasoned as to what I am used to, but good nonetheless. We also had the pulled pork and beef brisket. Both... More

We really enjoyed our dinners and the waiter who served us is a great guy. Ex forces. Gave us some great info and advice for the next stops on our... More

The ribs were good, but the "half-rack" was pretty skimpy. I think my pig must have been on a diet. Also, parking is nearly non-existent (a few badly marked spots in an alley that has to be accessed by going around the block). Clearly, they're not counting on repeat business!

My parents come here once or twice a year when traveling to Aspen. It's always good. This time most of us got the beef brisket, which was excellent. Mom got the baby back ribs, her favorite. Service is dependable and it's a fun atmosphere.

Our group of 11 from Georgia order an assortment of chicken, ribs and pulled pork for home delivery. The food arrives a few minutes late, but it is hot and very good. All the meat is moist, including the ribs with meat still attached but very tender and delicious. Nothing too special about the sides. We requested two different sauces... More

My wife and I had dinner at the Hickory House on 9/14/16. They serve lunch till 2:30pm then they close and reopen at 5:00pm for the dinner service. We decided to eat light so we each ordered a sandwich. I had a beef brisket and my wife had a pulled pork. My beef was chopped and somewhat chewy. My wife's... More

We never come to Aspen without eating at the Hickory House. It's a staple each time we visit. Great ribs, pork, and brisket. The sweet potato tots are my favorite. It's loud and usually crowded, but a great atmosphere. Don't miss it if you are a BBQ lover.

Thank Jim J
