Happened up this little restaurant and was extremely satisfied with the food. Cramped space but it created the atmosphere. Portions were slightly below my liking, but the quality made up for it. Maybe because it was so good, I just wanted more.

Our party of three had chicken pot pie SOUP, chorizo and cabbage over rice, and artichoke enchiliadas for lunch. Ate at a slightly cramped cafeteria style table in the window watching the traffic whiz by at this busy corner location. There seemed to be a...More

Just off of Center Square in downtown Doylestown, Hickory Kitchen is a smallish place but does a booming business over lunch. You'll order at the counter and your food will be delivered to your table. All food is served on real old-kitchen-style dishes, not paper,...More

And they made me huevos rancheros on a bun. There are not enough words in the English language to describe how delicious it was. I'm craving more! My hope is that I find it on their regular menu. Squeeee!

I got the ribs and pulled pork and a assortment of side dishes to go.it was all delicious. I'm sorry I haven't tried this place sooner. I'm pretty critical with judging my food too and everything was great.

The Carolina mustard is amazing. The ribs are are juicy and ready to fall off the bone. The brisket is my favorite. Great vegetarian options as well. Just a little disappointed with their burgers and salads.

I've known about the place for years, but didn't bother trying it. Why would a vegetarian bother with a BBQ place? But there are many vegetarians selections. The tofu wrap and the portobello mushroom wrap are both delicious. As is the vegetarian burger! And don't...More
