The Hickory Hut is the best BBQ spot in Salina! They have a great menu with an excellent variety of meats to choose from. The sweet potato fries are exceptional. Fast, friendly, and efficient service to boot. Highly recommend this Salina staple!

A nice local place which is couple of miles of the interstate. Staff was wonderful and helpful. I had the burnt ends which wasn't too bad. Wasn't crazy about the BBQ sauce, but everything else was delicious.

Service with a smile. Friendly staff & owners. Generous servings. Delicious food. Clean tables (and bathrooms). Our favorites: Barbecued ribs, pulled pork, brisket, potato wedges, coleslaw, baked beans! It's all good.

My husband and I were traveling east on I-70 and looking for a place to eat dinner. The Hickory Hut is well worth the couple of miles off the interstate. We both had the low carb platter and it was delicious.

Special of the day for lunch was chopped pork. Big giant sandwich with seasoned fries. I am a six foot four guy. I was absolutely full. Didn't even eat dinner that night. Great flavor and under nine bucks can't go wrong. Will stop there whenever I go through the area. Awesome! Its a counter type service place, and nice.

This is my favorite barbecue restaurant. The meat has a lot of sauce on it which some do not like. But it's my idea of barbecue.

Whether you want to sit inside or use the drive-through, the Hickory Hut is worth a stop. The barbecue is great with a wide selection of meats and dishes. Besides the main course, the sides are tasty as well. Prices are reasonable. Very clean inside, so don't be fooled by the outside appearance. Yes, you go up and order then... More
