We went to enjoy a dinner and were absolutely blown away by the rudeness of this place. The hostess said she would seat us and tried to seat us at a table next to a pole which was missing a chair. There was a reason for there not being a chair on one side of the table, there wasn't enough... More

A favorite of locals for many years is the Hickory House at 730 W. Main. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, they are known for their burgers, ribs and BBQ. With en extensive breakfast menu, I went back after many years for brunch and enjoyed the experience. It is a fun, casual spot that you will enjoy when in town.

Whenever we are in town - my husband comes here for ribs! He LOVES them! I usually get BBQ chicken or veggie burger - which are also great. And the corn on the cob is amazing!

A local recommended this as the best place for breakfast. Nice enough but nothing out of the ordinary. Portions are generous and came quickly. The big disappointment was the ribs. I said that it was too bad we were missing the ribs, it was 8am. Well, we could get ribs, if we wanted. So we did. All excited to try... More

It was our third visit to Aspen and certainly we always go for the Hickory House ribs racks. Food is delicious, service is very good and ambience exquisite and lovely for children and adults . Should mention fair prices.

Aspen is obviously a very affluential place so it was nice to have normal food. This restaurant isn't in the main area of Aspen, so if you're walking just keep that in mind. Friendly and fast service. The menu was a tad overwhelming but I feel like most BBQ places are like that. Sweet potato tots were good and they... More

We walked here on our last night in Aspen. Had read great reviews, and I concur...worth the stop. For a family of four, it was the most reasonably priced and one of the best tasting meals we had. As my 21 year old son said, "There is nothing like a great plate of meat after a day of skiing!" That... More
