Not much to complain about except for how busy this place is. If your in a hurry maybe pick somewhere else, but we got our beer right away and enjoyed hanging out until we had some delicious BBQ!

Just on way out of Aspen is the Hickory house. It is a quick and reasonably cheap BBQ ribs joint. We ordered the half rack of ribs and it came with garlic toast, beans, coleslaw and friends and it was good. The Ribs were cooked well and the sides were tasty.

I was there tonight (Jan/3). Awesome food and place in Aspen! Great food and great people. The location is also really easy to find and park behind the restaurant.

Must try when in Aspen. The ribs are so delicious. If you are really hungry, do yourself a favor and try the baby back ribs with beans, cole slow and baked potato. The prices are also very reasonable!

10/10 experience at ye olde hickory house. The ribs were imaginative and the service was implausible. They do offer take out, but that does not yield the same experience as dining in.

Excellent ribs and brisket. Pulled pork tender and juicy. Good local beers. Busy, so go early if possible. They do deliver.

This was chosen after much back and forth. If you have ever been to Aspen, you know the choices of food on the mid-range end are limited. We settled on this option and were pleased. It wasn't the absolute best I've ever had but it was good. Restaurant was quite busy and loud. Seating was close.

This is by far the best barbeque I've had in a long time. The prices are reasonable. They have the best ribs ever!!! If you ever travel to Aspen I suggest you give this place a try. You will not regret it. Come hungry and leave happy and full.

Ribs and potato kinda place, good way to get away from the kale and caviar crowd. There was no wait for a table but the location is not the best.
