Texans are fussy about their barbecue so I was a little suspicious to try it. I am so glad I did! The food was excellent and clearly homemade. The staff were very friendly and a delight to be around. The restaurant is rustic but clean and cozy. I would recommend it to all discriminating barbecue lovers.

They are okay, not a real bbq place as far as I am concerned. They are also out of most things I have been there 3 times since they opened and I do not find them to be impressive at all. The staff is not even around most of the time. The nachos were good and the food was just... More

We were there on Thurs night with 35 bridal party guests. One server - inadequate. Two groups of four shared Hickory's Barbecue Feast - Sampling of Our House Smoked Meats and Sausages with a Choice of Four Sides. Generous portions of meat, tiny portions of sides. Awful. Overcooked. Slow. Other guests in party were finished before we were served. Got... More

Stopped here to meet up with family. My brother had been here before and recommended it. We sat in the bar area, seeing as the dining room was being worked on. Lots of sports memorabilia on the walls. My brother loved that. The bartender waited on us, was very friendly and was quick to refill drinks, etc. We ordered the... More

OUr group of 7 dined here and had a great meal. The food was hot and tasty. Our server was delightful and attentive. We will return again for another meal the next time we are visiting this scenic area NY.

My son & I drove by HICKORY on our way to a meeting in Woodstock; we both thought "oh, let's go back this way to have lunch". The first thing you will notice at a real BBQ is the smell of smoke; we got a good whif when we got out of the truck in their parking lot. At 1:30... More

We go to Woodstock almost every week end and pass in front of that joint every time. We finally got the timing right and got a taste of it this week end. Got the rib tips as appetizer, and the brisket to share. Portion are large, so 2 can share an entree. Bbq sauce was excellent and the rest very... More

I was biking past the Smokehouse, and couldn't resist the smell. Delicious pulled pork and roast potatoes.
