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

This BBQ restaurant has really good smoked meats and several quality side items as well. I had the brisket and it was well prepared. I saw others eating pulled pork and it looked good even though I did not have it. Mid range price.

Close to the highway and easy access! Great food! You go up and order then they bring it to your table for you. We would definitely eat there again!

Good down home BBQ! Causal setting with small town feel with a friendly staff! Potato Salad was a nice creamy recipe with no mustard or salad dressing. Ribs were tender and with a nice tender crust to them.

I consider myself a great BBQ guy, but sometimes I like to try stuff from others. This place is awesome!! I'm normally disappointed when barbecue doesn't stack up to my own because it hardly ever is, but this place was delicious!! My wife, who is hard to please, was totally blown away!! The prices were good,the service was great and... More

If you like sugar, you're going to love the Hickory Hut! Beans and coleslaw were overly sweet, the sauce is among the sweetest we've ever had. Dark meat chicken was moist; the white meat (breast) was dry. Chopped brisket was dry and could not be saved by the little bit of sweet sauce stirred in. The large rib was moist... More

I chose this place because my Dad said that he and Mom used to eat there, whenever they came through Salina. I have visited Salina many times but had never tried it. It is in the older part of the city so I think that's one reason I have missed it. Depending on which way you are entering Salina though,... More

I found this on Trip Advisor and read the reviews. Pretty much everyone said that this was a great place to eat so we decided to give it a try. It is truly wonderful! Probably the best pork ribs I have ever had. The wall is plastered with awards for barbecuing. It's no wonder!!!

We're from Georgia where we know a few things about BBQ, but I've just ate the best BBQ I've ever had in Salina, KS. It was so good, we went back for dinner the same day. Can't wait to get back to Salina again.
