Hickory's Smokehouse Chester
You’ll find Hickory’s Smokehouse at a great location on the banks of the River Dee. They have a fab American style interior and have recently added a walled garden for you to enjoy the views of the river.
If you know Hickory’s then you’ll know they are fanatical about flames; silly about smokers and utterly obsessed with the smells, tastes and traditions of the Deep South. They made their first research journey over to New Orleans, Austin and Jackson back in the summer of 2009 and haven’t stopped bringing the southern hospitality inspiration back since.
On the menu there’s without a doubt a heavy focus on the smokehouse. They’ve been nailing their smoker recipes for over a decade and you’ll find delicious meats like baby back ribs and Texas brisket to try. For those that want to try a bit of everything then they have an epic platter filled with all the classics which is served with skin-on fries, house slaw, pickles & Tennessee bourbon gravy. It’s a belly buster, but it’s worth it. Other favourites are the mac ‘n’ cheese, corn dogs and you absolutely need to try the burnt end popcorn bites!
The impressive drinks list is jam-packed with interesting mixes and classic cocktails, and they’re crazy for milkshakes and soda’s too. You’ll find a selection of craft beers and some easy drinking session ales and lagers on the well-stocked bar also.
They’re family-friendly with a specially designed kid’s menu that includes ‘grown-up’ tastes and some fun healthy options. To keep the little ones entertained there is a fabulous cinema room for them to enjoy.
As you can imagine this place is super popular, so booking is advisable especially when they have their smokin’ deals on. Monday to Thursdays you’ll find offers such as The Barbecue Blowout and The Big Chicken Bucket for one! These are not to be missed.
They also have the NFL channel for all the American sports fans out there, shown all day every day.
In addition to their in-house hospitality Hickory’s also offer a curbside pick menu. You can get all the smoke house flavours at home, without using the oven. It’s super easy to order online.
If you’re looking for a super family friendly meal out, or a drink with some southern hospitality then head towards the river and make a stop here.
