This restaurant was recommended by so many people that we were amazed at how much we disliked it. Where to start? The waitress didn't want us to sit where we chose. We had an 8-day-old infant with us and she insisted that the BABY would be more comfortable at a different table (how ridiculous). She pushed us to order, and... More

While in Hickory on business, a friend wanted to take me to lunch. He asked what I was in the mood for and I told him I'd like a down home meal or soul food. He took me to the Snack Bar and I knew when we pulled into the parking lot I was probably going to get home style... More

All I will say is this....some of the comments in every review are true...good and bad. But, ask for a big, fluffy biscuit and order banana pudding. Your life will be good!

I've been at breakfast a number of times over the past few weeks and have to say that the food is poor to mediocre and the service is mediocre to passable. The servers are all friendly, and the prices reflect the quality of the food, but I can't say this is a place that I enjoy for the food. The... More

Where the locals hang out. The food is decent, the service...very good. You are sure to get a lot of "...hey sugar, honey, sweetie... there!

The snack bar is a staple for the locals in Hickory. If you want good comfort food the Snack Bar is the place to go. They have been a staple in Hickory for years. Service is fast and friendly. The best fried chicken livers ever.

Our food was great. We ate Dinner with our son and we enjoyed our food and the wonderful service we received. Great restaurant for couples or family and many dishes to choose from.

Fries pork chops, 2 eggs, and hash browns with onions, and a biscuit. They give you enough for two people.

While in western NC for a brief trip, my wife and I stopped in for breakfast. We were not disappointed! The restaurant was clean, people were very friendly, and the food was fantastic and reasonably priced! Will definitely eat here more often when in The area!

We go with our neighbors for an inexpensive breakfast at the Snack Bar eatery. I had a breakfast sandwich with egg and ham, but it was not good ham more like processed spam looking ham. The egg and wheat bread was fine but would not order or recommend their ham. My friend said her bacon was cooked perfectly. I tried... More
