Wow so much to love about this place! Chicken was moist and delicious, packed full of flavor. The sides were really... tasty. The Mexican style sauce was really tasty. I think it might have a tamarind base, so so tasty. Service was excellent, super nice people working here. I’ll be back soon! Loved it!read more

Thought I would try this place since I was in town for the weekend. Got a pickup order through DoorDash but the Chicken... was pink (raw and bloody near the bone) and undercooked on the inside but extremely dry on the outside. You can really kill someone from not cooking chicken all the way—very upset and would not suggest this place. They most likely cooked it at too high of a temperature to make a chicken dry and raw at the same time.read more

Ordered delivery through Grubhub - cheerful driver! The food was pretty good. The chicken was dry, but the sides were... delicious. Roasted potatoes, garden pasta and wonderful apple crisp. May I make a suggestion? Where are the deserts?? How about carrot cake with cream cheese frosting? Just a thought.read more

Got the 1/2 rib and 1/2 chicken combo. Chicken is good but overcooked. Rib was inedible since it look like leftover.... Side dishes was the best parts.read more

Order two half chickens with potato/gravy, itialian green beans, apples crisp, and baked beans. not sure how the... reviews I have just read could possibly reflect the food I just paid for. the chicken was dry with the slimey skin slipping right off. the sides were passable at best. threw the dinner in the garbage. sometimes if chicken is overcooked i can make chicken salad. not gonna happen. dont waste your $$read more

I ordered the 1/2 chicken and half slab dinner and it cost me $24.75. No way was it worth it. The best thing I had... was the Sprite from the fountain machine. The chicken was so dry. I would guess it had been sitting out for 6 hours. The ribs were small and did not have a good taste. I had never seen ribs that small. I use to go there years ago and loved it. I'm guessing there is a new owner. The place has changed for the worse. Don't bother going here.read more

Hard to describe how good and juicy and flavorful the chicken is. If you're on the fence about trying it, try the 1/4... or 1/2 chicken with 2 sides. The one in this picture is 1/4 leg and thigh.read more

Side was no good. Sweet corn tasted sour. Potato gave us food poison reaction. Chicken was very dry. Stay away is my... only suggestion.read more

I have been going to this place for a number of years. I love that it is local and family-owned. However it can be hit... or miss for the meat. I have been there a few times and the ribs or rotisserie chicken have been phenomenal. This past time going there both the ribs and chicken were rather dry and this is happened a few times also in the past. Their sides however are amazing. All of them are homemade an incredible. In the future I plan to maybe just get the sides and not take chances on the meat.read more

Hickory Roasters is a great quick lunch spot with frequent deals on quarter or half chicken meals. The meals come with... two sides, and there are many options! The chicken is always perfectly juicy with a great flavorful skin on the outside, and is served with a sweet cornbread muffin. When picking sides, I highly recommend the baked beans!read more
