“Bar-b-que??”
Reviewed 9 November 2012 via mobile

Should be listed as American cuisine - burgers, steaks, fish etc. Only 3 bar-b-que entrees (half chicken,ribs,something else). No beef brisket or pulled pork! No sandwiches or platters! And what's with the Lender's mini-bagels?? The green beans with bacon were very good and the coleslaw is the kind made with a sausage ginder and milky sauce. Overpriced to boot!

“Just ok”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

Ribs were dry and tough. Steak was good but we went for the BBQ so it was a disappointment. Not awesome for the price. If u name a restaurant barbecue your BBQ should be really good.

“Just awful ribs.”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

The sauce on the ribs is the worst by far I have ever tasted. The ribs were dry and not very meaty. My wife was smart and had the stuffed cabbage rolls.

“Not worth the money”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

Bought a half rack of ribs to go and when I got home, I bet there wasn't but about 3 tablespoons of meat for $16.??. Will not waste my money there ever again.

“Newbie”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

Just moved to Dayton about two months ago. First visit to Hickory we felt somewhat out of place. Seemed to be a lot of "regulars" and obviously we were not. Since then we have been back twice. Once to give it another chance and the most recent because we felt like we had "joined the club" and it is a good value.
