Description: Hickory’s Smokehouse is Chester’s authentic American BBQ. Here you can enjoy a traditional style of cooking that has its roots in the US, but that we think deserves to be just as popular over here. Our menu offers two styles of BBQ. The southern-style ‘Smoker’ BBQ uses slow, wood-fired cooking in our specially imported American smoker oven. The northern-style ‘Yankee’ BBQ is cooked over sizzling hot coals. Both styles create unbelievably tender, delicious meat and fish.

terrific meal, very generous portions of smoked ribs - very tasty with a full or half rack served on wooden platters with potato wedges and coleslaw. Friendly staff, good value for money.

Went for the first time on Fathers Day. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Was very busy but service was quick and food was excellent. Boys advised the meat was lovely and tasty and there were quite a few veggie options. I had veg and halloumi skewers which were yummy. Little playroom for the children is a great idea, colouring pencils and pictures also provided and the staff were really great with the children too. Would definitely go back again and recommend to family and friends! :-)

Food and service were excellent. On a busy summery Saturday, we were served within 5mins. Starters turned up really quick and mains straight after. Vanilla cream soda was amazing. Very good veggie options which is unusual for a smokehouse. Fantastic!

Our first visit as a belated birthday lunch treat - and a real treat! Did not disappoint. Shared the Smokehouse Platter - definitely no starter required! Accompanied by a mojito and a revolutionary cocktail. Tangy drinks balanced smoky BBQ ribs and tender, tasty steak, brisket and sausage with just enough fries and coleslaw. Great meal and drinks at just a shade under £50. Hot sunny day and packed outside but room indoors. Will be back...

Been to Hickories 4 times in the past few weeks, with the weather being so great it's the ideal place in chester to sit in the sun with a pint.
The home hickorys ale is probably the tastiest ale I've ever encountered. Just wish I could get some from tesco or somewhere to drink at home
Roadhouse burger - incredible
Chicken fajitas - amazing
rump steak - top quality
Nachos are the perfect sharing starter.
Really captures the american smokehouse astmosphere.
Even the toilets follow the smokehouse theme
The blonde waitress, I think her name was Sam she was blonde, was really great, attentive and chatty.
All in all, I will forever be a hickorys regular because its so good
