Decided to eat here because I had a coupon. Still wasn't worth it. Their sauces are great but the rest of the food was very mediocre. I had chicken fried steak. The Gravy tasted like it came from a can and there wasn't enough of it and I've had better steak from Sam's club.

These guys were the best about two years ago, they are now under new management and although they aren't the same, the place is still the best eatery in Rexburg. The burgers are super good and the homemade fries are to die for. They have mainly college kids for waiters and sometimes the food can take awhile, but it really... More

So not only do I love to make food (and I'm very good at it) I love to eat food. The Hickory is my favorite place in Rexburg to eat. The food is fabulous and there Sweet Potato fries are the BEST. I will use an old cliche "their to die for". So these better get served at my funeral.

Had dinner with six BYU-Idaho faculty members at this local diner. The place was very busy but service was fast. The staff was friendly and attentive. Everyone enjoyed their food and beverages. I had their Bad S Burger. The burger was prepared right. The meat was juicy and cooked well. One of the guest had prime rib. He said it... More

19 family members: adults, teens, kids. Burgers, prime rib, BBQ meat plates, kid's meals, soups, drinks and root beer floats were all outstanding. Service was very friendly and helpful. Management was active. We were all seated after a short wait at three tables. We put the Hickory on our list of must visit places again soon. Pulled pork was a... More

I was passing through the area on business and decided to give The Hickory a try with a to go order. I was not really all that impressed. The ribs still had the membrane on the back. The brisket had some funky, impossible to chew gristle. The pulled pork tasted like it was cooked in a crockpot instead of being... More

There is a little bit of everything here and every little bit is good. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and plated whimsically. I LOVED the shell in peanuts that are on the table when you get there. This is a gem!

Front desk personnel recommended. Close to the hotel. Wait staff was very friendly, and helpful. The BarBQ entrees were very good and portions big. As of this visit I'd recommend The Hickory, to any traveler.

BBQ delight! My husband and I went on a date to The Hickory. The food was AMAZING (my husbands only complaint was the food was a little salty for his person taste). The strawberry lemonade was delicious. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed. My only complaint was it took 30 minutes to be seated and another 30 to get our... More

I'm not a BBQ connoisseur, but I've had better barbecue. This isn't bad at all, however. The friendly staff and atmosphere bring it to four stars. As a local, however, this is not one of my "regular" places to dine out.
