“Run of the mill”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

My wife and I ate here last month. She had a combo plate and I had a rib platter. Sauce is really good, but meats were far from succulent bordering on over-smoked. Ribs were not 'fall off the bone' tender. Service was attentive, ambiance was standard. It's a big restaurant. It's a passable bbq restaurant, but doesn't compare to the Pork n' Pit on Colbern Rd just 3 miles away.

“Great BBQ!!!”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

We ate at the Summit Hickory Pit while visiting friends this summer. Since we had never been to the midwest, we were really looking forward to some authentic BBQ. We were not disappointed at all. I don't know how it compares to other places, but the Hickory Pit was outstanding, in my opinion. The burnt ends were awesome as were the ribs. I really liked the beans and cole slaw, as well. The kids menu was good and my 4 and 7 year old kids enjoyed their food. I don't know if or when we will ever get back that way, but if we do, we will be sure to stop at the Summit Hickory Pit again!
