Easy access off I-55N at Canton Mart Rd. Parking area is a bit small, but there are options in adjacent lots. Seating area is 6-7 tables and cozy. Staff is very friendly. Lots of menu options. Chicken, ribs and pork were all excellent.

Hickory Pit has been around forever. It's known for its smoked meats and pies, but has other menu options such as Brunswick Stew and hamburgers. The food is good, but it is very expensive for a casual barrbeque spot. My favorite item is the chopped...More

I dropped in about ten years ago and left after eating two or three bites. Maybe there are new owners now but back then the food was terrible.

Decent barbecue, a little overpriced. Very friendly family run place. Feel free to bring the kids-my grands love the cheeseburgers and grilled cheese. Very good pies and cakes. Nothing fancy, but who wants a fancy barbecue joint?

I'm from Memphis, with great barbecue, smokey and moist. This was a disappointing lunch. The barbecue had very little flavor, and was on the dry side. However, some of their barbecue sauces were really good.

The wet ribs are wonderful. Can't say enough about the sweet sauce. I didn't leave a single drop of it behind. Thanks for a great meal!
