This small place has quite a large menu, and I was spoiled for choice -- fortunately they have plenty of combo options so I could try more of their items. The side salad was nice but ordinary, but the real reason for coming here is the meats. The chicken was juicy and tender, and the ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender and... More

We occasionally sit in but often take-out from Hickory Hog. Babyback ribs are tender. Pulled pork is delicious.

I ordered a MEDIUM WELL Cheeseburger Platter To Go & My Hamburger was so hard & dry it tasted like SAW DUST & could have been used as a hockey puck. The cheese was an afterthought on the chef's part because it was not even melted on the hard as nails burger. I feed the meat to my 2 dogs.... More

Memphis may be known for ribs, and some places (Rendezvous) may rely on decades old reputation, but Hickory Hog dry rub ribs are great today!

They have the best spareribs around. You can get a dry rub or regular barbeque with different types of ribs.

We have been getting take out for just about two years from Hickory Hog, we really like the food, never strayed anywhere else for barbecue. Several months back we got home and we were shouted on the sides, not to the point where there were any missing, but the containers were just over half full, we complained but no big... More
