My boyfriend & I were in Flagstaff on December 1, 2016. I got the brisket point (burnt ends) sandwich and fried okra. Best bbq I have had in a LONG time! BF had ribs, beans, & coleslaw. Loved EVERY bite. We got fries to share- seasoned & perfectly cooked. So delightful, we're going back tomorrow (2 days after 1st visit).... More

You choose and pay at the counter , and then choose a table. I love ribs , and these were very good. They were... More

First time any of our group had been here. I love how you actually mix and match your food. I can't eat a lot so I ordered a slider plain. It was perfect. I also ordered a corm muffin. It was definitely home made. Everyone else had great food too. Other items we had was brisket, ribs, and the Mac... More

After having recently spent some time in Austin, Texas, we were craving some good BBQ. Unfortunately, you won't probably find it here. The brisket was as dry as dust, although in fairness, some fairly tasty dust with all the sauce they slathered on. The sandwich bun also was pretty dry. I will say that the pulled pork was a much...

First time here... Staff was nice although they brought me the wrong food I ordered. I bought 2 combo meals ribs and pork. Those were ok but the sides were nasty. Cole slaw and sweet potatoes. I guess u get a quarter pound meat. Total came to 20 bucks. Left super hungry. U get hardly anything. 3 tiny lil ribs...

Left hungry and totally pissed off . The staff did not even discuss my complaint .The potato salad was bland and tasteless . Was like eating a jar of mayonnaise . I want a refund . Ruined our anniversary dinner.

I was staying near old Rte 66 en route to GCNP for hiking and was looking for a BBQ place within walking distance. This place turned out to be a real gem, though I had been initially unsure when I first went in. It was the kind of place where you order and pre-pay before taking a seat. I got... More

Walking into Hickory's, you can smell the barbecue right away. Their menu is fairly straightforward with what they offer. It's similar in atmosphere to a Dickey's, only with better food. I ordered the two-meat combo with ribs and pulled pork, a piece of cornbread, and a side order of macaroni and cheese. Though I found that the cornbread and the... More

The BBQ ribs were good a little pricey, but ribs are not cheep anyway. The annoying thing that was that it was so smokey inside that my eyes hurt.

On our numerous stays in Flagstaff we have eaten here previously and find the staff friendly and food good. It is within walking distance from the Budget Inn where we always choose to stay.
