My wife and I visited this establishment and had dinner. I really enjoyed the food, but she did not like it that much. We went on a very busy night as we had to wait 20-30 min before being able to find a seat. The...More

Praising God that every restaurant we stopped at in Dayton had a ridiculous wait. We went 8 minutes up the road and had a fantastic meal at a reasonable cost with no waiting! I wish there was one of these in Toledo!

Great place to eat and great for parties. I have eaten in the restaurant, takeout and catering for a reception. All three were great. GOod amount of food for price.

Hickory River is a family go-to! Everything is delish, but I’m partial to the pulled pork nachos and the cole slaw. Great food, friendly staff and affordable. The trifecta!

The BBQ brisket is very good, as is the pork. I prefer the 1/2 Chicken🐔 A lot of sides, beers, and soft drinks. Affordable for families, especially on Tuesday nights when they feature 99 cents mini pork sandwiches or single ribs.

Chopped beef brisket platter and sandwich were delicious. Corn bread good. Cole slaw vinegar base, didn’t care for that. Employees cheerful and friendly

My favorite barbecue in Dayton. All the food is homemade and tastes like it. Only thing on this menu that I do not like is the cole slaw. Great cornbread too!

The best BBQ in SW Ohio. Everything is great. Get the mixed sauce. The brisket and pulled pork 2 meat plate is a favorite. It’s no wonder they have won so many awards at the State Fair.

Hickory River has the best pulled pork. Their slider and longneck special on Tuesday is a great deal. The Thursday special is pulled pork nachos and $1 margaritas. Very good. All the sides I’ve tried have been great. Huge portions even on specials. Well worth...More
