Drinks in mason jars......

Great fun place. Workers cafeteria feel and we particularly liked the table sharing attitude.......make a new friend. Food very tasty but portions enormous. Still can get a doggy bag. Thursday evening I think is a ukulele group meet. Just a great fun place. Recommend.

My husband loves to eat BBQ, and this is his favorite in Houston Heights area. I am a vegetarian and can always find vegetables, baked and mashed potatoes to dine on. Some nights there is live music and that is a real treat. Wednesday is the jam sessions with any age playing with the group. This starts at 6:30 is... More

My boyfriend and I ordered a 3 meat plate to share. We picked the lean sliced beef, ribs, and smoked turkey. The meat was very tasty...cooked perfectly and tender! The quantity of meat was amazing....we had enough for both of us to have 2 meals. We had the mac & cheese and hot tots for sides. The hot tots were... More

All of us said food was good and we had several different items including brisket, turkey, chopped, etc. Lots of people praise salad bar but I was disappointed. Place cool with Mason Jar glasses and cafeteria dinner plates. Jalapeño Tots yum!

All of their food is great but their salad bar is so wonderful. It is small but always fresh and delicious. Their portions are very generous so I often just have their salad nar and naked potato, I just doesn't get much better than that.

Hickory Hollow is a superb, Texas BBQ venue. Home style cooking, relaxed atmosphere and a healthy clientele... This restaurant always is a winner with their BBQ, small football-sized over-stuffed baked potatoes, and the best and largest chicken fried steak you'll ever bite into they aptly call "the saddle blanket" smothered with their mouth-watering hot creamed gravy....

The restaurant is rustic and homey. The food is good, home cooked food (without having to do it yourself). It's always cooked fresh to order, and the salad bar is awesome.

Some locals took us here, after they admit there wasn't a better BBQ place around. I'm from South Carolina and I love to try new BBQs. I was so let down. For the money, 5 small pieces of beef with some sauce was not just a let down, but a waste of money. It would've been a bit better if... More

We live near this Houston institution and visit it often - consistently great BBQ, friendly atmosphere and great live music some nights. We have been eating here off and on for several years now and have never had anything less than great food, they never miss a beat! Service is quick and always friendly. I love taking visitors here, it... More
