Every thing was excellent. There is not much seating, so if you go during a normal meal time, expect to have to wait for a table or plan take out. You have to try the mac and cheese.

Everything they serve is delicious! I've tried the pulled pork grilled cheese, the pulled pork reuben, and the italian. Great local spot. Not a lot of seating and you may have to wait a while to sit down during the busy lunch hours (12-1:30) even if your party is small. I hope they expand their seating soon. But very much... More

If you are in the Hickory NC area, you must visit the Hatch Sandwich Bar. Their unique menu is small but so very scrumptious. I have never eaten a sandwich that wasn't pleasing. Everything is made to order and the guys that own the restaurant are courteous and always greeting with a smile.

I love this little quaint sandwich stop on the corner of downtown Hickory. Always greeted with a smile. The turkey bacon avocado sandwich and the salad with feta and candied crusted pecans is the BOMB.

Saw Hatch on TripAdvisor while driving from Asheville to Durham on I40. Thank you, trip advisors! We would not have found this gem without you. Enjoyed a pulled pork banh mi, and my wife and I shared sides of Brussels sprouts - to die for - and a side salad. We ordered two additional sides, a tomato, feta, and balsamic... More

Awesome sandwiches, plates and sides. Probably the best Brussels sprouts I ever ate. Also side salad was phenomenal. Large portion with cheese crumbles and candied pecans 😋. If you are anywhere near Hickory, "You gotta go!"

Delicious fresh deli style sandwiches. Great place to take a break from traveling on I 40. Casual atmosphere. Relatively small place so this is not the place to go with a large group unless you order to go.
