This restaurant used to be so good. Now it's just so-so. Service was very good and parking is free and adequate. Pricing was reasonable. I don't think I'll be going back too soon.

This morning I had breakfast at the Hick'ry Pit Original. I ordered the California roll with cheese and mushrooms. Hash browns were included. Both were very good. I included some photos of the fresh deserts. My relative purchase a whole peach pie. The food was very good, but expensive in my opinion.

Went here as a teenager over 55 years ago. Still a good breakfast and the service was excellent. It's not too far from the hotel and I knew where it was. I rarely eat at a facility where I stay hence my choice for breakfast.

I've come here mostly for breakfast and lunch. When they cook Fajitas it's hard to breathe in the restaurant. Their pies are AMAZING. The service is good.

I'm here at least twice a month for business. Service is spotty. Breakfast is the better choice on the menu.

This place has been in Campbell for like 40 years, same location. They do BBQ right. Shout out to our server Casey, he is a fun one! And now to the repast: The baby backs? Tender, savory rub, juicy, fall off the bone, the mild smokey flavor is what BBQ dreams are made of. My side was a cold crisp... More

Enjoyed the small portion of BBQ ribs. BBQ sauce was flavorful, but not out of control. Service could have been a bit more attentive - I needed a beverage refill for a while. Portions are big - couldn't finish even the small 'rack'.

They used to serve large Barbecue sandwiches but not any longer. Ordered and was still hungry after I ate. Lots of bread small amount of meat. Looking for a great barbecue place. It seems like restrants are cutting back on amounts they give you but rising the cost. If any one knows a great place let me know.

Went there to be with friends for a Christmas get-together. It's the Christmas Season so the only time available was for Brunch. It worked out wonderfully. The food was very good and plentiful, good serving size. The waitress took good care of us. She was able to handle the large group, served us timely and knew when to join in... More
