We frequently travel along Route 28 on the way to our place in the Catskills, and Hickory BBQ is a favorite place to stop for lunch or dinner. Great, fast, friendly service, amazing side dishes (try the mac and cheese or the collared greens with pork), and of course the BBQ is justifiably famous - all of it is good (the ribs, chicken, even a BBQ smoked salmon that is amazing), but our favorite is the pulled pork, which is just about the best I've ever had, from Texas to Tennessee :)

Ordered the pull pork sandwich with potatoe salad, but was served fried (German) potatoes according to server. Food was good, but nothing to write home about.

Our group of 8 stopped here after a long ride from CT. They made a spot for us on the side deck in the shade and service was prompt (thanks Jordan!). The mother of the owner was there and she was quite a hoot. It seems like a comfortable and informal place for locals and travelers alike. Prices and portions were good. We all got something different and everyone commented on the nice smoky flavors. We'd go again if we're in the area!

Service was good and food was very good. Had the chopped salad which was pletiful and tasty and a half rack St. Louis style ribs and they were excellent. I did not care for their baked beans or their mac n cheese. Nothing wrong with them; just not my taste. Delicious cornbread and cole slaw. I had lemon sorbet for desert and the portion was very large.

Was there with some friends. Always good and dependable. Burgers, ribs, brisket are always delicious and satisfying. Its a keeper for sure. Good bar crowd but not my thing.

Thank bruce t
