I live nearby Hickory Barn so I tend to eat there quite often. It's always great! When I travel I like to try other BBQ joints and even though they may be good, I always comment - well Hickory Barn is just as good - if not better! I have used them to cater family events - even my daughter's... More

This is a great bbq place. The 1/2 smoked chicken w fried okra, fresh cole slaw and s yummy lemon meringue pie is s major hit.

Hickory Barn catered the conference I was attending. Many of the attendees were Texans and they raved about this place. Being from Kentucky BBQ can mean a whole lot of different things. I'm partial to Carolina BBQ but I must say this stuff was good. Had the chicken and the beef brisket and both were great. The sides were great... More

This restaurant is over-rated. The food is below average for bbq. For a $15 plate, I wanted my $ back. The staff was inattentive, and didn't bother to say thank you. Move past this place.

I tried this place for the first time a week ago since it was recommended by a co-worker who obviously hasn't had real BBQ. It's a decent meal if you're hungry, but plenty of other places way better for the money. The place itself is run down and not very clean in a run down strip center.

Located in a run down strip shopping center, don't let that discourage you. Stop in and enjoy good quality BBQ and friendly family style service.

If you can get past the horrible curb appeal you will find the best barbeque ever. Get the ribs, corn, baked potato and don't forget the free vinegar sweet onions.

The BBQ at Hickory Barn is always good. However, my favorite thing there is their Chef Salad, which they serve ice cold and always fresh. I think it's the best Chef Salad in town.

The location is in a small strip center and has seen better days. The parking lot is like a moonscape with its potholes. And local homeless people crowd the nearby sidewalk of closed out storefront doorways.
