My wife and I dropped in to Hickory Pit today for lunch. I ordered the beef plate with potato salad, and beans. All the items were above average. The tea was a little weak, but it was passable.
My wife ordered a grill cheese and slaw. She thought both were also excellent as well.
The inside dining room is small and they had mostly 6 person tables with only one 4 person table. They did have tables outside but they are on the south side and it could get very hot in the summer. But there were not many people eating while we were there.
We plan on eating there again when my BBQ craving returns. I've tried most BBQ restaurants in the Chattanooga area and this stands out as the best in my opinion.
