Everything was good! Can't go wrong with the ribs or brisket. The beans were delicious. It's a casual, friendly, local BBQ. A great find.

The smell in the parking is somewhat deceiving. The meat is tender but the seasoning is bland and sauce was too sweet for our tastes. The sides we AMAZING! I probably would not eat here again because I enjoy spicy, vinegar rich BBQ sauce. Had high hopes for the establishment. Give it a try, you might enjoy it!

I have been to several events where Hickory Hit Barbecue was served. The food has always been really really food! My favorite is the sandwich but the ribs and the rest are extremely good too! I don't think you can go wrong eating here or getting carry out!

Quick stop off HWY 81 for local flavor. Good value, good service, good food. Arrived at 1 pm and the burnt ends were already gone.

I am from Kansas City, so I am picky about my barbeque and probably have unrealistic expectations. This little place exceeds them! Great sauce! Wonderful BBQ ham and the Turkey legs are wonderful. Go on Thursday, the only day the Turkey Legs are available.

The Hickory Hut is the best BBQ spot in Salina! They have a great menu with an excellent variety of meats to choose from. The sweet potato fries are exceptional. Fast, friendly, and efficient service to boot. Highly recommend this Salina staple!

A nice local place which is couple of miles of the interstate. Staff was wonderful and helpful. I had the burnt ends which wasn't too bad. Wasn't crazy about the BBQ sauce, but everything else was delicious.

Service with a smile. Friendly staff & owners. Generous servings. Delicious food. Clean tables (and bathrooms). Our favorites: Barbecued ribs, pulled pork, brisket, potato wedges, coleslaw, baked beans! It's all good.

Thank Ann M
