I grew up in Atlanta and on Old Hickory House so every year when I go home Christmas, this is a must have. The pulled pork, ribs, squash casserole, cobbler are my favs; however everything they make is fantastic! Also, if you love Brunswick stew,...More

Took home a carryout meal of vegetables and a cobbler. Normally, I eat inside the restaurant. On the take-outs the vegetables are placed in individual plastic cups, and the cobbler in pre-packed containers. Somehow, the servings were not as tasty and were small to boot....More

We live the Hickory House breakfast and were just there Saturday. It’s an old restaurant and building, so don’t expect anything fancy. It’s just good food and ok coffee (not strong). I normally get an egg, bacon, grits and toast. Good

BBQ sauce was good but the ribs and corn on the cob was over cooked. Meat tough and dry and corn waterlooged. However, in fairness to the restaurant, it was later in the evening when we came in, close to closing, so that may be...More
