REALLY LOVE THIS PLACE.
I definitely disagree with the first reviewer. The 'cue couldn't be better - actually I think it has gotten better over the years. Always a fan of the ribs and chicken but the real winner here in the BBQ category is the Turkey Thighs. What a treat. Also love the beer list, the desserts and some of the non BBQ stuff, especially a solid Shrimp in the Basket, a delicious meatloaf, the areas best chili and buffalo wings. I agree with the reviewer who raved about the accomodating family-owners. Always pleasant and the staff really seems to respond and reflect this willingness to help find solutions for picky diners - to which I'm friends with many. In addition to the coconut cream pie, try the chcocolate Mousse and the Chocolate pecan.
DEFINITELY WORTH MANY VISITS.
Despite what the previous reviewer said I love the pulled pork at Hickory. Next to the chicken it's probably my favorite thing on the menu. From the homemade sauces to the fresh desserts - love the coconut cream pie especially - I have never had a real bad meal there. The service has always been real nice especially the family that owns it. I've brought guests and thay've gone out of their way to accomodate them. i would definitely recommend hickory and the people I speak to almost always agree.
Disappointing and to be avoided if you like tasty food.
Disappointing to say the least. Since having lunch there I have talked to others who have eaten at Hickory all agree it does not deserve the ratings it has received in the past. My pork sandwich with a side of roasted potato salad was tasteless, tough and dry. The sourdough flat bread wrap the pork was enclosed in was good and the wait staff attentive and that is the only positive thing I can say.
