We enjoyed our first trip to Hickory Hollow. I ordered the signature chicken fried steak called the rancher. It could have easily have fed 3-4 people. The steak was ok but the gravy was big let down/disappointing, hence the lower rating. The sides were good and baked potato was large so it can easily be shared. I ordered the hot... More

Guess every family has a relative that is vegetarian....this is our go to place for the catfish for them while we go for brisket and ribs. It's all great! The fried zucchini and hot tots are great to have first while waiting for entrees. Friendly staff- like able artwork and music.

They do a huge chicken fried steak that is pretty good. BBQ burrito is outstanding. The salad bar is very basic, mostly a fixins bar for baked potatoes which are great. Friendly staff. They also do catering, I have used them for 3 events from 25 to 300 people and they brought outstanding BBQ and great service to all three.

The food at Hickory Hollow is delicious. And on Friday nights they have great live music, especially when the group "Bordertown Ramblers" is playing.

Food is delicious. Loved the staff. The chicken fried steak is huge and good. The best. Fries are great and the jalapeno tots are just right not too spicy.

I stumbled upon this barbecue rather by accident, but was I surprised! They offer pretty much the standard, ribs brisket, fried chicken, the old texas classic chicken fried steak and the usual assortment of cakes, but was this tasty. The cakes are homemade and you taste it with every bite. Moreover, there is an actually quite large salad buffet and... More
