I tried this place 3 times. I liked the BBQ ribs and the fried okra, but the cabbage, greens, potato salad, BBQ chicken, fruit cobbler and mac and cheese all needed a little help. If you are not use to bland food then this may not be for you.

I ate at Hickory House this morning for breakfast. I got their 2 stack pancakes with bacon and a side of grits. The pancakes were HUGE! They are about 9 inches in diameter and they are delicious. The bacon was nice and crisp. The grits were good as well. Total price for this breakfast was like $6. You can't beat that. Hickory House is old, so it's not the cleanest looking place, but the waitress was nice and the food was delicious.

They have some of the best BBQ I've ever had. I have eaten there since the late 1960's. They have fantastic Brunswick stew. The prices are good and the food is excellent.

Yes, it is a landmark and destination for good 'ole southern breakfasts, vegetable plates or BBQ. When you need some good comfort food in Dunwoody then this is the ideal destination.

I could drink the bar-b-q sauce! I have eaten at Old Hickory House since I was a baby, and it is always GREAT. The Bruswick stew is the best that I have ever put in my mouth. The Barbeque Salad with Chopped pork is TO DIE FOR!!! (Try 2 parts barbeque sauce, 1 part ranch for dressing <3)

The sauce is VERY vinegary, so if you like a ketchupy sauce, it may not be for you. My father and Grandmother, Georgia Natives, Also love hickory house. My husband, a Boston Native HATES the Old Hickory House, but then....what does a Boston Native know about Barbeque.

The coleslaw is not the best, nor are the fries, so substitute with the Bruswick stew when you can, Also, you can by the bruswick stew by the GALLON, so take some home and freeze it. I was born in Dunwoody, and now I live in Marietta, so the frozen brunswick stew saves me a drive when the craving hits.

Ask for an end peice if you are getting sliced pork. DELICIOUS!!!!! Seriously...Try the Barbeque Salad.

This by far is some of the worst BBQ i have ever eaten. The french fries were the best thing I ate and I normally do not eat fries. The sauce had a strong flavor of dehydrrated onion and the pork and beef were very dry. The ribs wer okay but dry as well with very little meat. I would have like to have tried them fresh maybe they woudl have been better, but I will never know. I live close to OHH in Dunwoody, but from now on I will make sure I drive by the OHH on my way to a real bbq joint!

As for the breakfast we tried it a couple of sundays ago and were truly let down as well. Most of the breakfast was precooked and plated once we placed our orders, were is the hot bacon and sausage and who taught them how to make biscuits? The Waffle House is better than this place atleast the meal is made to order!

This place is horrible and I will never go back!!!!!

This is one of Atlanta's BBQ legends. Founded over fifty years ago, by Jack Black and his family, it became a local empire. Times changed, and more que joints moved into the ATL. Today, their are only a couple of locations left, with a loyal following. The BBQ is good, but not great. The real star here, is the Brunswick Stew, laden with corn, chopped pork, and tomatoes. I grew up on this stuff, so you might say I'm rightly partial. Old Hickory House still serves one of the best Country Breakfast's in the metro. Long-time gals work here. They are all a hoot!

Pros: Great Brunswick Stew, Good BBQ! Fun Old Time Service!

Cons: Too Far Away From My Home, But That's O.K.

I had better BBQ at Chili's and other chain restaurants.
Very friendly service but the food does not live up to its hype.
BBQ was average, and don't understand how anyone thinks it's the best BBQ all around.

The food was OK - nothing special. The ribs were small and lacking in the meat department. The BBQ sauce is pretty good but nothing special. Side dishes were fairly average as well.

You can do worse but you can definitely do better.

Best chopped pork, BBQ sauce, and Baby back ribs in Atlanta. Let's not forget the Brunswick stew, which is best in the nation. Forget that Tenn. w/ their cole slaw on the sandwich, and Low Country Crap w/ vinegar on everything, if you want the best, go to Old Hickory House.

The service here was great. I stopped here twice while traveling. If you are around Atlanta and are looking for a down home feeling place...this is it. I had the chopped pork plate and it was great. The ladies who work here appear to have worked here for a while...ask them for menu hints. They were very friendly and fun.

At 12:00 noon on a Saturday the parking lot was packed. I was led to the back and given a booth. The bench for the next booth was pushed against my table, and it was disconcerting to be so close to the back of the next booths occupants head. The ugly photograph hung above my table had something splattered on the glass.
I ordered the pork BBQ omelet and chose hash browns and toast as my sides. The omelet was bland and dry, with stringy barbecued pork chunks embedded in a dry and flavorless mass of egg. The side of BBQ sauce in a plastic cup was tart, but otherwise uninteresting, and could not save the omelet. The hash browns were dry and flavorless half-inch cubes of tan potato. The toast was rubbery, and too cold to melt the dairy spread that came with it.

Old Hickory House has the most authentic barbeque in Atlanta, The Bruswick Stew and garlic toast is a meal by itself. Orde a sliced outside pork plate and enjoy real old southern barbeque. Vegetable and traditional sides. Service a bit slow during rush periods but never bad. I highly recommend trying the wonderful old time barbeque restaurant.

The Scene
A faux-country decorative scheme and fluorescent-lit hominess rule here, with every known shade of brown predominating. Little about the restaurant has been updated in decades, and regulars--the "old" in Old Hickory…
