I have been to every restaurant in Springfield you will not find a better steak than the ribeye @ Hickory. Yes the place is dated and the staff does not wear uniforms, but who cares when the food is great. They have a huge menu so there's something everyone. Forget the chains and try a local small business. Oh yeah... More

Their pizza with whole wheat crust is the best pizza around. Appetizers and other meals are good as well, but the pizza is what you need to try.

The place itself is dirty. They have odd business hours so you don't know when they are open or not. It's very dark and has a smoky fill that just hangs in the air. The employees were very slow and didn't care on way or another about the custmers. It took forever to get our food, which was not good.... More

Highly recommend the whole wheat crust pizza with sour cream. Also, the BBQ pork potato skins are like no other.

Small and a bit crowded, rustic, a little noisy due to close tables. Five of us all had different meals, and all of the food was excellent. The steaks were all cooked as ordered and the vegetables were steamed just to the right tenderness. The mashed potatoes had the texture and taste of real potatoes and not "boxed". The waitress...

Very good food. I had the Half of Ribs dinner which was more than I could eat but excellent. Very country setting. Service was good. Not fancy but nice.

First - please remember to tip your waitress and/or bartender. They work hard. We came in for dinner recently - never heard of the place. Everything around Urbana was closed because of the fair so we drove here. First of all its a lot bigger inside than it looks from the outside. We weren't sure what to expect but wow.... More

Yummy pizza, exotic toppings, even whole wheat crust if you so desire! One of the most memorable pizza places from my college days and beyond. ( Check hours before you go...)
