Loved the St Loius Style ribs and pulled pork. Nice smokey flavor. The baked beans had great flavor. Its BYOB and you can buy it next door. I expect to be back again.

“Hit and Miss Spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Hickory Hog recently changed to a new location adjoining a liquor store. The space is larger than their previous one but the food seems to have declined in quality. The baby back ribs had a good taste and were tender but we've had better elsewhere. The ribs were actually served cool and eventually I was able to find the waitress so she could have them heated up. After waiting for close to10 minutes they still came back lukewarm. The baked beans tasted like they were out of a can. No add-ins or bbq sauce in them which seems to be the norm at other bbq restaurants. My husband had a combo plate with fried fish which he didn't like at all. The coleslaw was bland. We'll go back but I hope the next experience is better. We were there about 6 pm on a Saturday and got one of the last tables. Our waitress was personable and did what she could for us. It's a very popular spot for take-out and sit down meals.
