We looked for a place to eat in Salina near our motel and decided on the Hickory Hut. It's a basic bbq restaurant, but the food and service were very good. My husband's portion of ribs was more than he could eat. Would go there again when in town.

This is my favorite BBQ place in town. Friendly, local, and lots of variety. The sweet potato fries are amazing.

Love this place. Nice home feel, friendly and the food is what keeps you coming back. We always get the two meat dinner which is a great value and we have enough meat left over to take home for another meal.

I'm picky about BBQ. I like to be able to taste the smoke but if there is too much it makes me sick. This place has got it figured out. My husband and I both got a 2 meat dinner combo, and my son got a pork sandwich combo. I had ribs and chicken, hubby had ribs and brisket. Man... More

We usually stop at Braums but someone mentioned this place to us and we weren't disappointed. Rib ends and Fiesta potato for me. Hubs did the rib plate. Great quick on and off the highway. We'll be back!

Everything was good! Can't go wrong with the ribs or brisket. The beans were delicious. It's a casual, friendly, local BBQ. A great find.

The smell in the parking is somewhat deceiving. The meat is tender but the seasoning is bland and sauce was too sweet for our tastes. The sides we AMAZING! I probably would not eat here again because I enjoy spicy, vinegar rich BBQ sauce. Had high hopes for the establishment. Give it a try, you might enjoy it!

I have been to several events where Hickory Hit Barbecue was served. The food has always been really really food! My favorite is the sandwich but the ribs and the rest are extremely good too! I don't think you can go wrong eating here or getting carry out!
