REVIEWS OF Hickory Hills Barbecue IN Indiana

Tucker Epperson

Very small building but very good food. You can smell the smoker from the parking spot. I normally avoid pork products of any kind but had the "Boss Hog" sandwich. They give you so much you could make a second sandwich! Meat was smoked to perfection. Worth the cost. Would recommend anyone to try it, especially if you love BBQ.

jason sierakowski

Good local spot for BBQ. The brisket is great, and great daily specials. Typically busy during lunch.

Jerry B

My Company does Lunch and Learns to our new and even existing customers. Pork, and Chicken with Beans and Coleslaw, AWESOME AWESOME job perfect in everyway

Vickie Hagan

I usually get the chicken but Saturday I got to try the ribs. It truly was amazing fell right off the bone. Even with a full house those girls were smiling and providing great customer service.


Great BBQ. Excellent Stop if you are in the area

Jacqueline West

The food was fantastic, it taste good and it was great taste

Joshua Roth

The Beef Brisket was amazing!


Great place! There is good bbq all over the nation but usually expensive. This was the best ive had in southern Indiana and by far the best priced. Glad I don't live here or I would get fat fast at those prices. Id enjoy every minute though. Say hi to HiCunt while youre there.

Judi Lucas

Awesome food


Ordered their daily special of smoked chicken which turned out to pretty dry. It was edible as long as I drank enough water while chewing. BBQ sauce was nothing special either. I didn't get food poisoning if that's a plus then 2 stars?

Brian Euliss

Best BBQ around , no competition. Try the pulled pork nachos

Mike Schmid

Simply amazing barbecue! If you like pulled pork, you HAVE to get the "Boss Hog"

Savannah Ortega

Absolute best BBQ chicken Nachos you will ever have!!

Bryan L. Munsch

Great brisket sandwich. Great potato salad. Great sauces! But very tiny place to eat. Time for this place to expand to the taste of their food! Worth the trip. Think I'll try the ribs next!

Fredrick Cusack

The BBQ is off the charts!!!

Jack Lawson

Loved this place ever since it started in my home town. Glad to see it where it's at now. Good portions, good price, good food.

Tracy Bruce

Jerry Clarkston

Been a while since I was there but the food was just as awesome as I remember

Tina Graham

1st time here...was great large amount of food and priced cheap.. Dont forget the key lime pie not very big but was busy.. Definitely worth the visit!!!

Jeremy Bonikowske

Some of the best wings I've had! The home-made BBQ sauces are amazing! Service was fast and the workers are wonderful!

Vincent Mortara

Incredible pork. Incredible chicken. Incredible cole slaw. Incredible pie. A must if you are near. Great staff. Very efficient.

James Taylor

Great small BBQ restaurant with large portions of pulled pork on the sandwiches as well as ribs, brisket, chicken and as assorted sides like tangy slaw, doctored bake beans, mustard potato salad. Friendly staff and clean. If you couldn't tell I like this place.

Ashley Brown

Good food and good people!

Deborah Gephart

Located on 31, just north of JC's in Edinburgh. This is the best BBQ I have ever eaten, chicken, beef or doesn't matter. My favorite is the chicken nachos, and the ribs, but they only have the ribs on Friday and Saturday, and you better get there early!

Jeremy Downey

In town while on Hot Rod Power Tour, and stopped in for supper. While the menu was limited (end of the day, totally understand), the food was fantastic. I had the pork nachos and my dad had the Boss Hog. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Brian Napier

I took my family from out of town to this place to eat. Unfortunately they had closed 2 hours early. A few army guys and a business party of 8 were as well disappointed so we called then at 605 and the rude lady on the phone said she "couldn't help it that they closed at 6" The lady who answered the phone then stopped talking to me.

Thad Conn

Really good BBQ. My girlfriend and I could not finish the pork nachos...they are HUGE...I mean HUGE. Had the brisket sandwich too, it was delicious... brisket was perfect.

Steve Smith

Very tasty BBQ. Stopped in for first time over the weekend. Hard working staff, fast paced. Go to counter, place order - bring your own food to the table. That's how it works. Get the brisket. That is my recommendation. Better than most BBQ I've had in Indiana. Has very limited indoor seating, and some outdoor seating. most people seem to be getting their orders to go, so on a Saturday at 6:30 p.m. this evening was not a problem at all. I will return to this place, most likely to place an order to go. The food was really good.

Laurie Rue

I was in on Saturday. It was absolutely the BEST brisket I've ever had. I also got a pulled pork sandwich. Both sauces are delicious. I like to mix mine. The smoked baked beans were good but the coleslaw was extra good! I'll be back to try the rib tips soon!

Lisa Tranter

Best Bbq around.

Steve Nichols

Great little barbecue place

Rachel Hubble

I pulled up and was unsure about this place, but we went in and ordered. The ladies at the counter were super nice and helpful. And it had the best ribs I have ever tasted. The food was delicious. Even my picky kids loved the pulled pork and wanted me to order some to take home for dinner.

Matthew LeFebvre

Great food! Huge portion sizes at a very reasonable price.

Veronika D

Great food.. Awesome people!!

Greg Lewis

We love it!

john croslow

I love this place! Just make sure you go early! They sell put quickly!

Mark Anderson

Great bbq if you can catch them open

Ken Miller

Best barbeque around. Also like their slaw. It has a kick to it.

M Lohr

Home town BBQ at it best. If you are in the area give them a try.

Scott Kriskie

Fantastic BBQ! Very reasonably priced for what you get. I am glad I had the opportunity to visit this little hidden treasure. The staff was very friendly, as were the other patrons. It is a very small building, but they do offer some nice outdoor seating as well. I hope I get the chance to return here.

Erin M

I love this place. The ribs are fantastic, the pork is fabulous and I just love the pork nachos. I get them with no tomatoes or jalapeno and they are always right. The little piggy sandwich is enough for 2 people or 2 dinners. Always flavorful and delicious. And the baked beans and potato salad are perfect side dishes for anything on the menu.

Jason Bockelman

Been a while since I've been to this spot. It hasn't changed at all. The barbecue is very good with great sauces. They always over serve the quantities advertised and make sure you leave full. They do have the best potato salad I've ever had. The cajun slaw was pretty good, but the wife wasn't a fan. My son had the small nachos which had to weigh 2 lbs when I tried to pick it up. He's 14 and didnt even put a dent in it. This place is worth the drive. A little hole in the wall ma and pa diner that's a good value with good food.

Aubrey Montgomery

Food was great! The place was just a little bit messy. I would definitely recommend to others! The brisket was the best I have ever had.

Jess J

☆♡☆♡☆♡ Amazing u should try it!

Tim Freese

First time there the food was amazing

Adam Stephenson

Always crowded because the food is amazing! I always get the specials they have each day!

Matthew Long

Very good food and friendly staff. Great atmosphere for bbq. Me and my family eat hear when we were in town for a softball tournament witch is right next to this place I had to drive aroumd to it 3 times over the weekend. It would be cool if somehow you set a stand up close to the fence on softball tournaments. I would rather get your good food over softball park food just saying. So if you have not eat at Hickory Hills BBQ than you are missing out. You should eat hear at least once in your life. Hope you get the chance to try it.

Red Earles

Great food. On Fridays have to get there early if you want rib tips.

Large Larry

It's a little hole in the wall but they have the best BBQ within a 30 min. drive.

Quientin Anderson

Fantastic BBQ. I never leave reviews, but had to for this place. We were able to get a small sample before deciding and quickly knew we were in the right place. You could taste the smoke in the meat. Good price for the amount of meat. This is what you hope for in a BBQ dive.

John Corbin

Awesome awesome food great value.

Greg Browning

I miss being able to eat here. They have excellent food.

Kristin Swank

It was busy pretty much the entire time we were there, but you couldn't have found a nicer staff! They let us taste to see what we wanted, and they were super nice about everything. Be aware that the prices are discounted if you pay cash, but not if you pay with card.

Alex Whitlock

Best barbecue around and best staff

Henry Williams

Went an hour before close, everyone there was extremely friendly and the food was fantastic. Highly recommended.

Joel Fedell

Good BBQ. Found this place listed on Only in Indiana, being from Greenwood it's not a far drive. Arrived about 5pm, sold out of brisket. Seems like it's a popular item, probably should make more! Had 1lb of Pulled Pork. Lots of pork! Mild sauce is good, too. Didn't have a combo option, at least that I saw, so paid separately for potato salad...which was good. I heard some good things about the Cole slaw, but "Cajun" scared me away. It's not the best BBQ I've ever had...but it's one of the best in Central Indiana...that I've tried so far! If I was down in the area, I'd go back for sure.

Charles Wilding

Best BBQ around this area and that's not because it's the only place. This joint ran off the competition so bad, other resteraunts wont even try to come close. Please give it a shot, great people, better food.

Nicole Anderson

I had the chicken & it was phenomenal!!! I was shocked because the potato salad was

Lisa Bass

Love the pulled pork sandwiches I had today and my boyfriend the nachos

Kelly Carey

Superb BBQ. Generous portions. Prompt service!

Ricky Butler

Fantastic food. I will definitely visit again.

Kathy Walker

Searching for a quick bite on a trip for Mi to KY..... Man did we luck out! Great pulled pork and ribs, not a fancy place, super quick, and the price was right!!

Donald Crain

Best barbecue in Taylorsville. Their two sauces are excellent. The ribs almost fall off the bone. My favorite is their gumbo.

Michael Housefield

$ great good!!

Robert Sellers

Awesome smoked meats

Cynthia McClellan

Good food you must go there!!

Rachel Michaelis

I love this place!!! Great smoked meats, but if you want brisket it usually sells out before the end of the day.

Amy Gentry

Best BBQ place!!!

Vic Tor

Went To Camp Atterbury “Work” They told me about the BBQ Chicken Sandwich. I went to check it out and it was awesome, I also loved how the Little restaurant was design!!!!

Fred Head

Fall off the bones ribs. Great brisket and pulled pork. A real rib joint with the meat done right. Sides are good too. Funky rib joint facilities. Do NOT wear a tie, blue jeans and sneakers.

Hans Grepke

Great little place! We showed up just after opening time and it was crazy busy the whole time we were there! The baked beans are great!

Jason Goen

Great food, fast service.

Brittany Davis

This place has some really great barbecue. I mean fall off the bone ribs, flavorful pulled pork nachos, and the hot wings are really good too, with a smoked flavor. Me and my husband go there often because its very inexpensive. There is a down home feeling you get when you go inside the building, so they make you feel welcome. Great food, Great folks!

Tom Padgett

Can't go wrong with hickory hill BBQ. Tuesday's gumbo is awesome!

Renton Brax

A whole lot of food for a small price Tasted amazing.

Delicious little gem

SeptAngel75 Momma Lacroix

Great quick service. Awesome food.

G Joseph Krompass

Just got done eating there I heard it was so good... got the pulled pork nachos less than a half a cup of meat on whole thing I was searching through chips and cheese to find it...where’s the pork..Yes the nachos were big but it was only chips and Cheese sauce There’s a reason you don’t see any meat in the pictures of pulled pork Nachos

Craig Smith


Ann Hendricks

Oh my GOD - get the brisket!! Ha! Food was delicious! Great place to go on a sunny day to enjoy eating outside.

josh black

First 2 times I went there it was delicious. Last time the meat was cold and I had to drench my sandwich in sauce because the bun was super dry.

James I. Van Blaricum

Food is GREAT & moderately priced. The BEST RIBS & GUMBO that I've found in a hundred miles radius. Great by the Lbs. PULLED PORK, SMOKED CHICKEN, & BEEF BRISKET.

Cliff Anderson

Awesome! The right quality and quantity for the price. The nachos are freaking delicious.

Daniel Smith

Great place, but they run out of their daily special fast. Dont expect to get it after 2pm.

David Holda

Fast and friendly service even in the middle of a lunch rush. The pulled pork had a great smoky flavor and was not dried out at all. The wings were good, but I like them a little more crispy. The wing sauce was tangy and spicy, but not too spicy.

Kathy Hamm

not fancy by any means, but the food was fantastic. Something's wrong if you go away hungry. I had a half order of nachos with plenty left over for another meal!

Jillian Renschler

Delicious food. Get there early to make sure they don't run out of your choice

Todd Pleune

Worth a stop. Missed the brisket, but all the pork was great.

Christopher Blank

Great hole in the wall BBQ place! 10 bucks gets a healthy portion of delicious BBQ, one side and a drink.

Tony Cole

1st trip out of pork , got chicken taste good but dry as smoked cotton balls . sides were good . 2nd trip got the pork....just as dry as chicken. Probly won't be a 3rd trip

D Derrer

Good bbq. Generous portions.

TJ Schrader

Great food! Just didnt like how small and close everything is inside. Everybody is tripping over each other getting drinks and condiments.

Tonya Rains

Good food

Mark Wells

Great little BBQ place if your not careful you'll drive rite by and not even notice it but once you stop and eat there great BBQ you'll never pass by again without stopping great food and great people all the woman working were great and had the down home southern style attitude were it was like we've known each other for years I will definitely be back

Gloria Taylor

Great BBQ, great baked beans, great potato salad (just like my Mom used to make). Great, great, great!!! Come @ least 2-3 times a month. Just got back from being gone 2 months and sure missed this place. Didn't find any BBQ to compare while gone either.

John Mihich

Rustic setting with great pork. They have a small menu but make up for it with great pulled pork. I used their hot and spicy sauce - just enough heat. I will go back when in town.

Robert Smoot

Best Barbecue in central Indiana. The Wednesday special chicken sandwich is awesome. Their brisket is also very good. I compare all other BBQ places to Hickory Hill. I wish they were open all year and on Mondays - but this place is worth the wait!

Tyler Stickans

Best wings around!

Jasmine Brown

Hands down probably one of the BEST bbq places around this area! Definitely beats out Sugar Creek Bbq!! Will definitely be coming back for more! Amazing portions for the price!

Chris Aviles

Really good food at fair prices. Definitely a nice addition to the local food scene. Only small complaints are that there isn't alot of seating and they sometimes run out of certain foods. That last part isn't surprising though for a local BBQ joint with smoked foods since they take alot of time to prepare.

Chris3569 Smith

Excellent brisket sandwich there .friendly service

TheTruth duribidodibo

Best barbeque in all of Indiana, you will lick the plate

L Heinz

Skip the corporate restaurants at the shopping outlet and go here. About two miles down the road from the outlet mall. Great bbq and pulled pork. Main building is typical of southern bbq shacks. Small seating area in main building. They have a second building that has more seating and is a bit nicer inside. They also have a covered picnic area. Rated as one of the top ten bbq joints in Indiana. Well worth paying a visit.

Jonny Sweeny

Delicious barbeque and quick counter service. I go every time I'm in the area

Derek Bryant

Nice little place! Wednesday's Special chicken sandwich and the pulled pork Nacho's are my favorite. Popular place so seats can go fast inside but outside seating is available under the pavilion.

Brittany Self

This place is sooo amazing. I love their nachos. The food is amazing and the price is cheap.

Bob Polston

Excellent BBQ, Best in this area!!! :)

Juan Sandoval

Holy moly. I wished this was in Columbus Indiana because I would be there every day. This place has the best barbecue I have ever had. Go try it!!! It's delicious!! And the staff are awesome! Fair warning I've only tasted the beef so I'm not sure how the others taste

Rob White

Definitely one of the best BBQ joints around central Indiana. The brisket nachos were phenomenal!

N. Mason

Pretty good. Got there late and they were nearly sold out for the day so go early.

Evan Sipes

best barbecue and brisket around!

Shannon Marie

Great place friendly service and room to park one big truck out front

gordon webb

Great food

Bezo Mack

Was disappointed that they only serve ribs and tips on Friday and Saturday. On top of that the sliced chicken and pulled pork sandwiches were cold.

Kristin j.r.

The meat is delicious. We need a real smokehouse barbeque place like this in Greenwood. This places blows Smokey Bones and Famous Dave's out of the water. My group ordered smoked chicken wings dry, and with buffalo sauce, boss hogg pulled pork sandwich, pulled pork nachos (piled high) and beef brisket. Everything was great. I like the small seating area but folks were lined out the door and around the corner 5 mins after opening at 11am. We ate in the main building but my lunch mates told me there were 2 or 3 outbuildings that also had seating, so those aren't just sheds for smoking the meat back there, it's extra dining room. If you like small diners with no frills decor and excellent food at reasonable prices, you'll love Hickory Hills.

Summer Elmore

Food was tasty, service pretty quick, and was busy so I think it was a local favorite.

Stacy Wiggington

Just ate the BEST ribs of my life!

Joseph Springsteen


Janice Whittington

Excellent BBQ!

Jane Stormer

Go ahead and get off of I-65 and drive couple miles out of your way to try this place. There is a giant ceramic crock full of pickles, they make their own sauce, and just as all BBQ should be they give you more food than you need. I haven't found something that I don't like on the menu! It is all good!

Tom Priddis

Great ribs. Simple menu. Fast service.

terri mcfetridge

Absolutely love this place. The pulled pork is delicious and I love the pork nachos. I keep wanting to try the brisket but the pork is so good I just keep ordering it. One of these days...

Michelle Smith

Great as always

Lisa P

Sooo Good!!! Loved it! Tender juicy meat with lots of Hickory taste. I love BBQ sauce and I always use plenty...but this meats hickory flavor was so good I had to eat most of it without sauce. We tried their baked beans, Cole slaw and tater salad... Everything was great... Great prices and A very friendly staff. Will definitely stop here again.

Jerry Sizemore

They have the best coleslaw

Robert Erickson

Smoked chicken special with their bacon is delicious on Wednesday. Pulled pork is also a winner. Cajun Cole slaw, potato salad and smoked baked beans are all great sides with your meal.

Cassandra Denham

Amazing BBQ I have had in a very long time. You guys definitely know what your doing. The beans are amazing as well

Marc Maynard

Best BBQ in town. I recommend getting there early. The food is off the hook excellent and limited. Brisket and the daily specials go fast. Call ahead and place an order. A real local not so secret spot. Food so good we reserved food for the next night and came back so we could try the brisket. I really hope I have a reason to come back to this town again.

Xavier White

Yummy place

Carolyn Gann

Very good food and big portions and the sauces were great!!

beth chesser

Google says to help others by telling them about this place. This one is easy.. get there now! Turn on your navagation on your phone or car and find this place stat! It's just great every time. I have a Labor Day party every year and for 10 years this has been my go to place for pulled pork. They package is up nice and give you the sauce you need without a charge. Another bbq place (no names) wanted to charge me once...that never happened again. But seriously this is a mom and pop local family that has had a gold mine. It's just down from the outlet mall off the freeway. I promise it's worth the 2 extra miles to pass by the chain restaurants. Pulled pork, ribs, nachos.. it's all top notch!

Shawn Collins


chad littrell

Have the best BBQ around

Brian Perkins

Great food but very small location with limited seating

anita hall

simply amazing. you can't go wrong with this place, ever! prices are fair, staff are great, small indoor area for eating. the coleslaw is my favorite from anywhere. this is a local's fav!!

Devin Walters

If I could leave ZERO stars I would. Three weeks before our wedding they tell us they’ve booked two weddings and can no longer serve our wedding. We have a three month heads up of our date. This is absolutely ridiculous. Leaving no time for us to find any othe option. Wouldn’t recommend booking for events.

Edward La Luz

Great Food, BEST BBQ Ribs

Holly White

GET THE CHICKEN NACHOS!! Glenn and everyone else is always in good spirits and make you feel at home. My co-workers like the pork nachos and piglets. Their ribs and wings....even their pickles are amazing. Not a bad word to say about this place

Michele Charles

Its awesome
