So delicious! This place was so good I only ended up taking a picture of the appetizer (fried okra) because I was so excited when the brisket, pulled pork, beans, hush puppies, and crispy shoe string fries showed up at the table. Meat cooked to perfection, sauce fantastic and brought to the table warmed up and ready to go! Service... More

I like barbeque, especially ribs and pulled pork. I am especially a fan of Famous Dave's. My significant other and I had never tried Hickory BBQ in Fort Myers. It is not a chain, which I like. So, on April 7, 2017 we gave it a try for dinner. We arrived shortly after 5 PM on a Friday. I was... More

Been coming here for 40 years. The sauce is off the hook. The brisket and sliced pork or the way to go. Drown them in their delicious vinegar/tomato sauce. Finish off with a delicious coconut cream pie. Their sweet tea to die for. Do not miss this place. Locals love it!

Every time I travel to Fort Myers Beach I must go to Hickory Bar-B-Q. It's been a long tradition over the years. They have the best sauce and my aunt and I can easily go through the entire bottle. It's their secret sauce but if you like vinegar based, it's simply AMAZING! If you have room for dessert, their coconut... More

First time visit and our meals were very good. Waitresses were very sweet and helpful. I had the brisket and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich. No complaints what so ever. Prices were great!

Everything was great! Pulled pork, ribs, brisket, biscuits, sweet tea, beans. The coconut cream pie (freshly made daily) looked amazing but, we were too full this time. Friendly service, not crowded, priced right. We will be back. Only held back one star, as they could use a spicy(er) sauce option but, the house sauce and peppered were good enough.

My neighbor's favorite bbq spot in town, so I went with him to check it out again. It's been a year or more since I was there. It is a long time place here in Ft Myers, and seems to be stable and dependable. I had their brisket plate special, and it was delicious. So good that I did not... More

We have been eating here for years. It still delivers the same good barbecue with their own sauce but it has been cleaned up with new owners. The hush puppies are still excellent also.

The Hickory is still delivering good food at a reasonable price with their own specialties. It is a holdout from the past and places like this deserve to be remembered over and over for all the great food they deliver. Please keep the wonderful food coming.
