As a native Jacksonian I can say I have been going to the Hickory Pit for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. They have pork and beef B-B-Q and both are delicious. Often I just buy a pound of pork and make sandwiches at home. They have mild or strong sauce,both of which are great. When we eat at the restaurant, I often get a plate with a B-B-Q sandwich and side dishes which are all good. I particularly enjoy the slaw which is fairly sweet but tart enough to compliment the sandwiches. I read another review that said he loved the B-B-Q but didn't try the deserts. Well. he missed one the the best things going. the Hershey Bar Pie. I can't describe it, just try it yourself, it's to die for. One piece and you'll buy a whole one to take with you. Since they have been in north Jackson, many other B-B-Q restaurants have come and gone including chains like Corky's, Sonny's, and Red,Hot & Blue. Why? You figure it out.
