This is a great alternative to fast food when you're on the road. We often stop here when traveling between NW Ohio and Cincinnati, and it's always good. Lots of options on the menu.

It is very easy to run up the bill at the restaurant. You walk past all the delicious food and add them to your tray. It's when they had you the bill at the end of the counter that your eye's pop out. If you are not use to bbq, be prepared to have an upset tummy in an hour... More

The Pulled Pork Nachos were AWESOME! We also enjoyed the 1/2 chicken and the Polish sausage. I would definitely go back

I enjoy non-chain restaurants. Fast service, great smoked BBQ. Large servings. I had the brisket and loved every bite. 3 sauces to choose from. Right off the interstate. Worth the stop if traveling through.

This is some of the best BBQ I've ever had, no wonder they win at the Ohio State Fair every year. The sides are all great too.

Very good food. One of the best BBQ places in the Dayton area. Beef brisket and sausage was tasty. Loved the spicy sauce which has just the right hot level. Tried the sides of chili and spiced apples and loved both of them. Cornbread to me was only thing not at the same level as other food. Staff very friendly... More

Love Hickory River restaurant, especially on Tuesday nights when they have $1 pork sliders, ribs and beers. :) Their meats all have a nice smoke to them...the ham is my absolute favorite.
