We were in town for the day and stopped here on a recommendation. The food and service were both terrific. We had the lunch special which was a brisket sandwich with 2 sides and a drink. I had a beer instead of a soft drink, but the total bill was still less than $20. The food was great, the price was very reasonable and every one of the employees we interacted with went above and beyond in being friendly, speedy and helpful. I wish we lived closer because we would go there all the time.

We visited with our two foreign exchange students and the staff was so terrific, giving us recommendations for local specialties like the Cue Shoe. Highly recommend for service, price and quality!

We ate there for a very reasonable price. The barbecue was very good as well. Got pulled pork sliders and baked beans. Service was great too.

Had 2 plates of the 2 meat combo. Brisket, Pulled Pork, Turkey, and Ham plus the sides. All meat was moist and mild sauce was not overly sweet. Need to try the combo or mixed sauce next time. The sides were all good complements to the meat, except I would heat the applesauce and make it more of like skillet apples instead. Good value for the amount of food we got. Well done Hickory River and staff was very friendly!

Excellent BBQ ribs at this place, some of the best for a chain restaurant
Good wings and brisket, but the highlight is without a doubt the ribs!
