Good place for BBQ and good breakfasts. Love the Brunswick Stew also. Good portions. They also offer vegetables. So glad this location is staying open.

Would love to write a review about the food but I couldn't get served. It's a seat yourself but no staff ever came to my table or gave me a menu. After about 15 minutes I went to the counter and asked (politely) if I...More

We have come here with family for years, but this Sunday breakfast was just not that great. The potatoes tasted like they were leftover & cold. Eggs were good (hard to mess up scrambled eggs!) biscuits were not really cooked enough. Will still try again...More

The family run Old Hickory House restaurants have been an Atlanta institution for more than 60 years with 4 family members operating their stores in Atlanta before closing and retiring. The old Forrest Park location was the one who had a scene in the movie "Smokey & The Bandit" filmed in 1977. This scene at the Old Hickory House had Jackie Gleason and Burt Reynolds in it. Gleason ordered a Diablo sandwich which we now serve at our location in Tucker, Georgia. Elvis Presley was another celebrity among other's who frequented the Old Hickory House's in the Atlanta area. The Tucker location that opened in 1974 is the only Old Hickory House standing. We plan to be serving our customers for another 60 years. Come join us and "Put Some South In Your Mouth!"
