About
Established in 1977. This is the place, a real authentic Texas cafe. Hickory Hollow has been serving exceptional Texas comfort food with Texas hospitality since 1977.. We're best known for traditional Texas-style barbecue and chicken fried steak and have won highest honors for these and other good things, too. Enjoy our beef brisket, german sausage, pork spare ribs, and chicken, all slowly smoked for a wonderful smoke flavor in the tradition of Texas barbeque. We grill USDA Choice rib eye steaks that are hand-cut on our premises. Enjoy grilled and fried chicken breasts or catfish and burgers. We have huge baked potatoes, a salad bar, and a list of side orders. Our restaurant can accommodate

Awesome restaurant for a laid back meal. Plenty of delicious food for the price. If you go away hungry you'll have to blame yourself. Awesome chicken tenders were juicy with a delicious crunchy breading. Homemade onion rings are a must to order. Helpful staff! We'll...be back.More

We had a very delicious plentiful meal. Chicken fried steak with gravy, homemade onion rings, and salad. Wife had chicken tenders, potato tots, and fried okra. No complaints from either of us. Excellent food and plenty for the price. If you go hungry it's your...own fault. We'll be back!More

Always consistently great food, atmosphere, and service. Easy laid back atmosphere. Rewards program is awesome. Yesterday we had chicken fried steak as our main and my sides were the delicious onion rings and grilled zucchini and wife had fried okra and jalapeño tater tots (not...your average tater tots, really great). We'll be back.More

Always great food whether we dine in or pick up to go Friday we had the fried fish platter, which is served with two sides. The french fries find okra, mashed potatoes, fried zucchini, or a side salad bar excellent choices. There are premium sides,...like onion rings, fried zucchini, and baked potato. The fish portion was large enough for two meals. Counter service is fast and friendly.More

We were greeted when we arrived and order was taken promptly and correctly. My hamburger steak well-done was cooked perfectly with grilled onions. I requested my onion rings with no seasoning, and this request was executed. The brisket and ribs to meat. Platter was generous...portions, and served with a extra large baked potato loaded. The restaurant was clean. An enjoyable meal in a pleasant environment.More

This place was recommended from my hotel and had great reviews online. I wanted some great BBQ. This is the perfect Texas Country diner/cafe. Everyone was friendly, you order at the front and then pick it up at the window, prices were great$$ I got...the BBQ and one of the small chicken fried steak they are well know for😋😋😋 Everything was great, I got Fried okra and Green beans. All the great country comfort foods on one plate. They even had Mason jars for your Iced Tea❤️ Will definitely return on next trip and recommend this place to others!!More

Have been wanting to try for years but never found our yourselves close enough to make the visit. That all changed today. The food is good and counter service is friendly. The menu is quite expansive and probably has something for everybody.

We both got the small chicken fried steaks which were both good but for some reason not as flavorful as the last time (a few years ago). Potato salad was very good. Jalapeño tots are tasty and corn side was good. Got a pecan pie...to go which was ok.More

I enjoyed eating at Hickory Hollow. I ordered the chicken tenders and expected to received something like a kid's meal. Not so at Hickory Hollow!! The chicken tenders were huge, had a perfect batter, and were seasoned just right. I am hooked, and that is...what I will order every time. I truly enjoyed my meal.More
