Great local eats with many choices. Big hearty breakfast or healthy choice both delicious. Outstanding ribs and onion ribs. Place is old and run down but the food and service were both very good.

I booked here in advance for a group of 40 for a late Saturday lunch. Everything was perfect! Our servers, the food, 15 different checks...spot on! Highly recommend this place. Thanks for hosting our team, Hickory House!

Had a wonderful lunch outside on a beautiful day. Amazing ribs and onion rings. Great beer. A ton of local workmen were also having lunch there so it was busy. Very reasonably priced! Probably the best thing we liked about Aspen.

The ribs are truly sensational. Smoky, tender , not over-sauced. They push them hard on the menu. They are the real deal - some of the best I have had anywhere. Portions are generous & everything was good. Service was prompt & friendly. Extra sauce...More

A pleasant diner like place, with good food and good, friendly service. Best know for Barbeque, but all their food is good. Though Aspen has a reputation of being pricy, The Hickory House is not expensive. The "When did you visit" is not adequate. I...More
