No one can complain about the great food served here. Love it and have been there for very long. Simple, wonderful food for a local place or take-out to NYC. Lovely people take care of you!

We frequently travel along Route 28 on the way to our place in the Catskills, and Hickory BBQ is a favorite place to stop for lunch or dinner. Great, fast, friendly service, amazing side dishes (try the mac and cheese or the collared greens with pork), and of course the BBQ is justifiably famous - all of it is good... More

Ordered the pull pork sandwich with potatoe salad, but was served fried (German) potatoes according to server. Food was good, but nothing to write home about.

Our group of 8 stopped here after a long ride from CT. They made a spot for us on the side deck in the shade and service was prompt (thanks Jordan!). The mother of the owner was there and she was quite a hoot. It seems like a comfortable and informal place for locals and travelers alike. Prices and portions... More

Service was good and food was very good. Had the chopped salad which was pletiful and tasty and a half rack St. Louis style ribs and they were excellent. I did not care for their baked beans or their mac n cheese. Nothing wrong with them; just not my taste. Delicious cornbread and cole slaw. I had lemon sorbet for... More

Was there with some friends. Always good and dependable. Burgers, ribs, brisket are always delicious and satisfying. Its a keeper for sure. Good bar crowd but not my thing.

As transplanted Manhattanites we have been spoiled when it comes to restaurants. But when we moved to Woodstock seven years ago we discovered Hickory BBQ and have made it our go-to restaurant for great ribs, catfish, and the best hamburger this side of the Hudson River. Their daily specials are always great and diverse and when they have the fried... More

Hickory BBQ catered our wedding on 7/9/16 and it was SPECTACULAR. The food was delicious and plentiful - we had four cocktail hour appetizers: the smoked trout, pigs in a blanket, spring rolls, and the crudité. Our meal was pulled pork, chicken, and grilled veggies with mac'n'cheese, mashed potatoes, and black bean and corn salad. Our guests also enjoyed cornbread... More

Kept hearing how good this is so tried it again after a so-so meal a year ago. Service was very slow. I got a smoked trout salad special in a wrap. The wrap was literally like tough, stale cardboard! Took insides out and the trout salad was dry and tasteless. Hubby got ribs- fatty and tough- no falling off the... More

This place has delicious BBQ. What's more they offer vegetarian options as well. It's family run and I think they have live musical entertainment. The decor is quaint and it is kid friendly. Try it. You'll like it!
