The snack bar is a staple for the locals in Hickory. If you want good comfort food the Snack Bar is the place to go. They have been a staple in Hickory for years. Service is fast and friendly. The best fried chicken livers ever.

Our food was great. We ate Dinner with our son and we enjoyed our food and the wonderful service we received. Great restaurant for couples or family and many dishes to choose from.
