I was underwhelmed. This is a "country" themed restaurant that feels like a Hollywood director has a vision of what a "Texas restaurant" should be and plopped it down in the fourth largest city in the country. It's out of place and a bit odd. You're going to find comfort foods (chicken fried steak, including a ridiculously-sized one called the... More

We ordered the large chicken fried steak and cleaned our plates. Excellent flavor and cooked perfectly. The sides were spot on also.

Good food and friendly service. Allows my wife and I to share a meal by providing an extra plate. We have never been disappointed in our meal.

Went to Houston for a wedding. Researched internet for best chicken fried steak in town. Hickory Hollow appeared on every list. Very much a local place. Place your order, find a table, and wait for your order to be called. Ordered the medium size steak and it covered my plate. Mashed potatoes were real an green beans flavored nicely. Was... More

This place is so local, I was the only tourist in the whole place. According to my friend who took me there, not many foreigners come here which I find interesting, since the food is awesome. Texan BBQ, Live country music (I had no idea I like that) and the Chicken Fried Steak. Yeah, as weird as it may sound... More

Had the opportunity to enjoy Hickory Hollow in Houston while there on family business. Favorite place of people we know there so we gave it a try for lunch. Portions are very generous and tasty. I had the pulled pork barbeque sandwich and my husband tried the Chicken Fried Chicken. Sandwich was more than I could eat with some great... More

It was a huge chicken fried steak with some of the best okra I have ever had. I also don't know why but something about sweet tea in a Mason jar just makes it sweeter

Hickory Hollow hosts a bluegrass jam every Wednesday which gives me a chance to play with new people. Yes, I could eat before I go, but the food here is so good I never get tired of eating there, so I enjoy a good dinner every Wednesday. Add to that the really friendly staff and an open friendly atmosphere that... More
