We have lived in Parker, CO for over a year and had never been to the Hickory House. After our visit, we realized we have not been missing anything. The restaurant is your typical BBQ atmosphere, the food is not. I ordered their "Championship" ribs and I could not believe how dry they were. They covered them in BBQ sauce to try and mask the fact that they were dry, they tasted like Jerkey. It is as if the ribs are sitting in the back, as they are finished smoking, to dry out. Maybe it was an off night but we won't be back. Do yourself a favor, if you notice the ribs are dry when they come out, send them back and ask for a fresher rack.
