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.

“An evening with Dev.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Great food, well prepared in a busy bustling atmosphere. Next to us was Dev from Corrie! He seemed perfectly charming although we didn't spoil his evening by asking for photos or autographs! The staff were excellent and we would certainly eat there again.

“Food and Service.. Great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Stopped in for a drinks on a beautiful day. Sat outside and enjoyed great service with a smile, which is rare for Chester. Decided to stay for dinner once our 3 children appeared and was not disappointed. Even my American husband was impressed. Will definitely return.

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Went here for a friends birthday and had a brilliant time.. food (as always) was excellent & staff were very friendly. Brilliant value for money & particularly like the jam jar drinks. Also ordered the table top toasted marshmallows for dessert & thought it was fantastic.. great “experience food” and would definitely have it again. Worth the waiting list to get a table at Hickory’s.

“Delicious food, brilliant staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

When a place has a 45 minute wait for a table for 2 at 8pm on a Monday night you know it must be worth the wait... and it definitely was (the wait time was passed easily sipping on a Carolina Cowgirl cocktail- delicious!)

The food was quickly prepared once we were seated, and they even accommodated my order for the BBQ pulled pork sandwich despite the fact that they usually stop serving them at 5pm (I misread the menu but would have happily selected a dozen other things on the menu as everything looked incredible). The brisket fell apart as it was so tender and was cooked to perfection.

Tom, our waiter, was apparently on his first day but you would never have guessed as he was efficient, friendly and very polite- excellent service!

Cannot wait to come back and sample more of the fantastic menu (and for more free popcorn!)
