My wife and I needed a break on our Spring Fling motorcycle trip. We stopped to top off our Gold Wing's tank and asked the clerk where she goes for a sit down lunch. The HH was recommended. It's easy to overlook as it's sandwiched between fast food franchises. The restaurant has been here forever and could use some TLC. We are very realistic when traveling agricultural areas. These are hard working folks-who don't have a lot of discretionary funds. We saw quite a few locals coming in. That's testimony to the perceived value here. We didn't want to over eat and get sleepy or sluggish. So we split a Beef Brisket Sandwich. There was plenty for both of us! Perhaps it was the open air of our previous 200 miles, but it really tasted good. Our wait staffer, Samantha, was simply a joy! Such a sweet young lady! When we're traveling through this area, we've be back. Hoped this helped you!

Stopped at Hickory House on our way through Lamar today. They share a building with a Conoco gas station, which is handy. The staff were all very friendly. I had the chicken avocado wrap. The chicken was a little dry, but overall, pretty tasty. My husband had the shredded bbq brisket sandwich, which he says was "ok" - but ok, good. Good, quick stop if you're driving through.

The Manager at the Chek Inn motel recommended this restaurant. It was a good choice for family restaurant. Nice service, good atmosphere.

Overall, you get a warm welcome from the staff, decent seating, and a good variety of meals available for most tastes. The pricing is reasonable for Southeastern Colorado, and really, I have never had a bad meal there. I would recommend Hickory House to anyone looking for simple "home style" cooking and a family type of atmosphere.

Hungry in a farm town you don't really know that well? Gotta like a place with a parking lot full of local vehicles. And even better when it's breakfast and the vehicles are mostly pickups. Great, friendly, fast service. A good selection of menu items. A coffee cup that rarely stays half empty for long. Wallet-friendly prices. We've been here a few times over the years and enjoyed each visit.
