bkarau's Review of Hickory Fare Bar-B-Que

  • Atmosphere: Near RR tracks and a donut shop with a good pile out back, but the structure looks too code compliant. Inside there are lots of signed pictures, but many are of ice skaters (?!?!). The sound of a deep fryer, presence of tablecloths, and general cleanliness flag this as a non-joint.
  • Coleslaw: Very light in both cut and sauce, but little flavor.
  • Sausage: Very sweet. A bit chewey, but not too pasty.
  • Sauce: Tangy, but not overbearing.
  • Spare Rib: Good at first bite, but then become spongy and bland, Possibly boiled?
  • Beef: Good texture, but little flavor.
  • Potato Salad: Almost textureless.
  • Beans: Pinto beans are OK, but a bit mushy.
  • Beans: Serviceable baked beans.
