“Good Que”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

The Hickory BBQ Smokehouse won't let you leave hungry.
The Kingston Trio is a great mix of different meats and cooking techniques that is tasty and you'll be bringing quite a bit home for lunch or dinner the next day.
The loaded fries is a great appetizer but again you've got to be hungry.
I've never tried anything sweet here but the dessert menu does looks like a nice set of offerings. Go hungry and go often...

“A delicious dive well worth the plunge!”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Pulled pork Po boy sandwiches and topped on lucious green and vegetable salad- soooo delicious! We had a side of roasted potatoes with mustard seed and another side of kale- yummy! One of the specials that day was a generous helping of pickled veggies with ranch dipping sauce-we're talkin turnips and broccoli, zucchini, cukes...it was impressive. Make sure to try whatever meat you get with the housemade Carolina mustard- they were sold out otherwise we would've bout a case of the stuff : )

“Great food, great catering service.”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

After having eaten there several times we hired them to cater our sons wedding and boy did they outdo our expectations. We were originally thinking about a pig roast but decided that we'd go with a BBQ style party but with trout, and lots of eclectic apps. The chef/owner impressed us with his skills and sent a lovely staff . Our only regret is we don't have any more kids to throw weddings for.

“Fabulous BBQ and Southern Style Food”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

This place was great with great laid back atmosphere. The Collard Greens (don't know how to spell it, sorry) were absolutely delicous and can't imagine any more southern than we had. My mother and family said that they had the best Ribs and Chicken that they have ever had. Will definately go back. Looks like they would have a great happy hour on a weekend. Will keep you all posted!!!!!! Mac & Cheese were really good too and the smell of the smoking food in the back was so soothing and excellent!!!!!! True BBQ!

“Best Barbeque Anywhere”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

I have had the pleasure of eating at Hickory 3 times.
I ate at Hickory for the first time in 2010. I was amazed at how great the barbeque was. The side dishes were equally great; the special mac and cheese wonderful, sweet potato fries the bomb. By the looks of the place I figured it was a lucky visit, the place is a little rough around the edges.
I have been back 4 times, the food is consistently great, you must try the brisket sandwich, it’s the best I have had, and I travel all over the US. They also have a wonderful selection of local beer on tap. With moderate pricing the place is a must visit.
