On our way home from Colorado, the four of us decided barbecue for lunch sounded good. This place may be a few minutes from I-70, but it's easy to find. You just walk up to the counter and order your food, which comes out in mere minutes. It's very good. I ordered the burnt end basket with potato wedges. My... More

My wife, two teens and stopped by for a BBQ fix before leaving KS. Collectively we had ribs, pulled pork, brisket and several sides. It was all good. Didn't get a chance to try the burnt ends, but supposedly they sell out of them on a regular basis. Worth the stop and the money!

We stopped for lunch on the way back from vacation and was pleasantly surprised with this discovery! The employees were friendly with historical pictures decorating the establishment. I would definitely recommend this place for yummy barbecue!

Local BBQ started here in the shed adjacent to the parking lot and sold out of a wagon until purchasing this building for Serious Barbecue. These will be the best BBQ beans you'll ever eat spiced with so much meat they are almost a stew. Hard choices among the ribs, pulled pork and sausage. You can't go wrong. Not a... More

My husband and I both had the pulled pork lunch special with potato wedges, he had the beans I had the slaw. We both loved the sandwich, the pork and BBQ sauce were pretty tasty. We didn't care for the wedges, they sprinkle a seasoning on them we didn't care for. We would go back & try the onion rings,... More

We were staying overnight in Salina and I had been craving some brisket during my travels. Well since I was in Kansas, I thought I would try the Hickory Hut to fulfil my brisket jones. :-) The Hickory Hut has many menu items and they were out of chicken, so I guess this was a favorite this day. I ordered... More

We wanted bbq in Concordia but it was closed so we chose to wait til Salina. Best choice ever! The ribs were meaty, the beans were so good we bought an extra pint and the potato salad was creamy. Definitely the best bbq on I70 that we've eaten!

Our first visit, based on a personal recommendation. This is a small local restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff and seriously good food. It's the kind of place where you order at the counter (window in this case) and they bring the food out to you. Add red checked table cloths and you could be in a traditional Texas-style... More

Go! Just go! Do it! You won't regret your decision. We loved it. We stopped on our way to St. Louis and it was just a delight.
