I can't believe how much I love Hickory River. I'm not a BBQ person, but their BBQ will change your mind. I love the pulled pork sandwich with mixed sauce. It is fantastic. My husband usually gets their combo with ribs and sliced beef. If...More

The ribs were good but not falling off the bone. The pork loin is GREAT and the sauce is some of the best sauce I have ever had. Great side dishes and super desserts. Very casual and great service. Very friendly!

Have never had any issues at any of the numerous visits I have made. Their meat is all tasty, the sides are well paired with the meat offerings, and the service has always been wonderful!

This is not a fine dinning experience, but they don't try to be. This is 'A' BBQ and the meats are all excellent. The BBQ is fantastic - MILD, MIX or HOT. (I always do MIX on the BBQ sauce.) Last time had Beef Brisket,...More

Stopped here when we were on the road and in a hurry. Got great barbecue in less time than we could have gotten served at any of the fast food joints and the price was not much more than stopping at fast food.
