Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.

— Mark Twain

ssweeney's Review of Hickory House Bar B-Q

Tour: 

MAIN FARE

  • Rib - Best tasting rib of the day.  A bit of a conundrum here:  It is a bit dry (as if overcooked), however the meat doesn't come easily off the bone.  Maybe cooked a little too hot & fast?
  • Brisket - is moist on the plate.  Fatty is falling apart... However, you somehow you can't chew through this stuff.  Lean is worse.
  • Sausage - Eckrich.

OTHER FARE

  • Potato Salad - Salty.
  • Cole Slaw - is very good. Creamy sauce with a vinegar tang, and a bit of spice on the finish.
  • Pintos - Plain.
  • Baked Beans - Chili beans made into baked -- doesn't work for me.
  • Sauce - Heavy worchestershire.
  • Hot sauce - Chili spices with plenty-o-kick.
  • They serve true Texas Toast here -- that's a bonus!

ATMOSPHERE

  • This place has a "drive-up" feel to it... I almost expect waitresses on roller skates to come out and take my order.
  • They do have a drive-thru window
  • Eclectic interior; a hodge-podge of different rooms, each with a separate look & feel.
  • Been here for 34 years - "Dad" opened in 1975
