One of my family's absolute favorite local places to eat at and to get takeout from. Their smoked pork and ribs are AMAZING! The ONLY downside is that they close down for the winter.

I first stopped at this restaurant back in 1954. No, it wasn't Hickory Hills Barbecue then. It was a little roadside drive-in diner called The Curly Dog, and their signature dish was an esoteric foot-long hot dog that you'd have to see to believe. My home was south, and my college was north, so I often stopped at the Curly... More

The hubby got the... More

I've been going to Hickory Hills for years and my plate of choice was the Boss Hogg. It's a huge sandwich of deliciously barbecued pulled pork. Last time I went, I get the Piglet and it was huge as well, even though it's cheaper than the Boss Hogg. I also had a cup of gumbo, but they gave me a... More

Pulled in here 15 minutes before closing time, lady said we still have Brisket which is unusual this time of day. I tend to go for the pork, but her comment steered me to the beef. Glad I did, really great flavor and not dried out. Was way more than I could eat, unfortunately I was in the area on... More

Drive just a mile or two north on US 31 from the Edinburgh Outlet Mall off of I-65 in Indiana to find this little Barbecue restaurant. Don't let its looks distract you. It looks like a hole in the wall - well, it is a hole in the wall - but its barbecue is excellent! Whether you get pulled port... More

I first ate here a few years ago and enjoyed it so much that when in the area we get pulled pork to put in our freezer. Great!!!

If you are looking for good food to eat when you come to shop or are traveling up or down I 65, this is it! Simple, to the point, no frills, friendly. What more could a tired shopper or traveler want?! We bought extra to take home with us!

Went on a recommendation, checked out the reviews and WOW! It stands up to every good thing that anyone has said. We've lived in Texas and Tennessee, 2 places that know BBQ. We were admittedly a little skeptical, but these people know what they're doing. Hubby ordered the brisket sandwich and it was large. We both tasted it. That's some... More
