If you are in Kingston and looking for BBQ, give it a shot. It's not far off of the Thruway. Portions are a good size and pretty good. Staff was friendly. A bit pricey, but probably worth it.

My boyfriend and I took an impromptu trip up to the cat skills for weekend skiing and didn't put much thought into what food will eat during our stay. Since we come from Jersey and can be very particular about restaurants and good food, we were hesitant about what to expect in the mountains. However, we came across this restaurant... More

We took my father in law there for his birthday. He got the ribs, which he adores. However, the ribs at this place are kind of like shoe leather, though shoe leather is tastier. I had fried shrimp. OMG. Disgusting. We took some pulled pork home, and my dog turned up his nose at it. If you want Bar B... More

No one can complain about the great food served here. Love it and have been there for very long. Simple, wonderful food for a local place or take-out to NYC. Lovely people take care of you!

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

As transplanted Manhattanites we have been spoiled when it comes to restaurants. But when we moved to Woodstock seven years ago we discovered Hickory BBQ and have made it our go-to restaurant for great ribs, catfish, and the best hamburger this side of the Hudson River. Their daily specials are always great and diverse and when they have the fried... More
