Description: Hickory’s Smokehouse is Chester’s authentic American BBQ. Here you can enjoy a traditional style of cooking that has its roots in the US, but that we think deserves to be just as popular over here. Our menu offers two styles of BBQ. The southern-style ‘Smoker’ BBQ uses slow, wood-fired cooking in our specially imported American smoker oven. The northern-style ‘Yankee’ BBQ is cooked over sizzling hot coals. Both styles create unbelievably tender, delicious meat and fish.

Visited with family early. Monday evening thinking it would be quiet but we were wrong! Staff were very helpful and we were able to book a table in about 40 minutes which was great. Food was lovely, service was excellent as usual

We were late trying to book a Sunday Lunch table (We were a large family party eight adults and three toddlers) and we were disappointed not to get a table. The young lady who took are phone call then suggested 'Brunch' at 10.00 for 10.30. This not only turned out to be an excellent suggestion but an excellent choice.
The staff welcomed us, the table pre-set for three highchairs. Steaming cups of tea and coffee appeared as quick as you could say "Latte". The Menu choice is extensive and well varied, the children menu has something to tempt the most 'difficult' pallet.
Once ordered, most plumping for Full English, others tempted by American style brunch, we had little time to wait, hardly enough time for the children to acquaint themselves with the superb children's play den, before brunch was served.
I cannot praise the attentive staff highly enough, the whole table was served in a polite and professional manner.
Of the food, I can only say 'Probably the best full English breakfast I have ever eaten out'. All the family enjoyed there choices.
All I can add is 'Serendipity- Hickory's Lunch! Try a Hickory's Brunch - you will see what I mean

We have been to Hickory's in Chester a number of times and it is always excellent. The food is very authentic, having tried BBQ in USA previously and the service is very good. There is always a good atmosphere and it is always crowded. We enjoy sitting at the Chef's table as you get to see what is going on. Recommend this to anyone who enjoys this sort of food. You will have to book though as it is always full, even on a weekday lunchtime!

The service, food atmosphere are all amazing but would recommend booking a table a few weeks prior.
Can't wait to go back
