heard nice things about this place...had the angus burger w/ pulled pork and slaw....it was outstanding....little messy but well worth it...can get a little crowded and service bogs down, so it is not a place to go if you are in a rush , but well worth it..

Friday of memorial day weekend, and they were slammed! The staff was a little green but Helen had it all under control! She could have been there alone and I would have received the same fantastic customer service. The food was good, the brisket was tender and smokey, the chicken was wonderful, both of the sauces were fantastic and the... More

Food was excellent, staff was very nice. Took a while to be served, (only 2 people working) but it was worth the wait.

Went for lunch with family. We have been looking forward to stopping in. It was really good but I expect most BBQ places to be pretty good. It's hard to screw up BBQ. We are a big fan of baby back ribs, so to find out they only had St. Louis styles was disappointing. Burgers look good but we did... More

Based on the menu, this place is targeted to fans of pulled pork and the like. This is a self serve restaurant and easy on your wallet. Seating is limited.

Food done right! The smell of hickory meets you at the door! The flavor lives up to your expectations. I had the ribs, greens and sweet potato. They have specials for every taste palate, even gluten free dishes. Good sized portions. Casual atmosphere and friendly staff. Cornbread is to die for. I will be back!

We went just as it was closing but they still served us. The food was good not awesome. We think because it was late and maybe it sat for awhile. The corn bread is great!!!

We all had quesadillas. Two were vegetarian and the other one was a chicken BBQ. They were all very tasty. The only problem was that they got the boxes mixed up. The one that was suppose to be without tomatoes, had tomatoes. No biggie--we just switched. Would definitely eat there again.

Been to Hickory Kitchen many times for lunch especially. In general, its good food, but certainly not the best barbecue you've had. Mike is a key to the place working smoothly, and without him on the scene, things tend to slip. I also think HK needs to focus more on ensuring the best possible BARBECUE experience. Perhaps the volume of... More
