Chicken fried steaks looked huge but in reality they are nothing more than excess fried batter. Not worth the money

This place will make you feel like a local, go for the environment! Blue grass, chicken fried steak and communal tables.

IF--I had been driving by and stopped here I would have been pleased. BUT I READ SO MANY SO GREAT REVIEWS IT WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT-- as I drove out of my way to get there in a strange city. Chicken Fried Steak reviews from a number of reviews were over the top. While it was OK tasting and priced fairly... More

The folks at Hickory Coral made our fresh made hamburgers just the way we requested. The onion rings were off the scale. This was a very pleasant take-out experience.

We frequent this restaurant at least 2 to 3 times per month. I don't know why but I love their salads, nothing fancy but I love them. The brisket, sausage, chop beef sandwiches and chicken fried steaks are all great. My wife says the BBQ chicken is also good but I have never tried it, too many other things to... More

We had to arrive in Houston on Sunday and it turns out that a lot of highly rated BBQ places are closed on Sunday. We had the 3 meat platter, I had the sl beef, sausage and ribs. The ribs and sausage were my favorite. Side dishes were average. My 2 colleagues had the chicken fried steak and they said... More

I happened to have a business lunch here and enjoyed it at the fullest. Good food, family style, unlike other American restaurants it is not pretentious but truly honest, good choice also of vegetables cooked in a healthy way that is closer to my European eating habits. Very professional staff. I will definitely go back again

Colleagues from out of town were wanting some local fare and we chose Hickory Hollow. Unfortunately we showed up just as the Jury Duty bus had unloaded and the line was unbearable. The manager pulled us out of line one at a time and took our orders at the take out window. That was great, we were almost done by... More

So I searched on trip advisor , read all the reviews and settled on Hickory Hollow. And I was not disappointed. I went for a medium, being a reserved Brit and not a Texan, and it was plenty with the hot tots and grilled zucchini , atmos. Was good, staff friendly and helpful to a Brit who may as well... More
