We ordered take out. The taste and quality of the entirety of our order did not meet what you'd expect from a restaurant like this. It was nowhere near what you would expect for the price. The hamburgers were undercooked and small. The online ordering does not offer a choice of temperature for the burgers, and they were borderline medium at best. The wings were barely sauced, overcooked, and quite small. Tough and lacked much flavor. However, the sides of broccoli that accompanied our children's orders should have been thrown in the trash rather than cooked and served. The broccoli itself was spoiled. As you can see in the picture it looks less than appetizing, but the smell of it was horrible. It made us wonder about the quality and safety of the rest of the food we had. You would have saved a star or two had it not been for the broccoli. Such a shame to lose a customer and receive a bad review over something as little and simple as broccoli, but that is what happens when the food you prepare does not even meet minimum standards of what is expected.
I’m not even sure where to begin. My friends and I ordered chicken wings, the spicy shrimp tacos and a cheeseburger. All of our meals were absolutely terrible! The chicken wings were undercooked and lacked flavor. The same went for the shrimp. It was supposed to be spicy? Not at all. How are those even supposed to be tacos. The cheeseburger was burned on the outside and undercooked on the inside. This will be our first and last time ordering food from here. Note: Pics of the wings and cheeseburger were not attached as they were thrown in the garbage.
Fine place to go for some basic tavern fare. The service was quick and our waitress was very nice and attentive. The food was a bit lackluster, especially for the pricing. For those who want to go to a tavern to watch some sports, there are plenty of TVs, but most weren't working (may have been because of the rainstorm). Good atmosphere, things were relatively calm even though it was decently busy. I ordered Linda's Turkey Melt, which had good turkey but needed some pickles or a good sauce, something to add a bit more to it than just turkey and cheese and onion. Hubby got the Philly, which was ok. There was no seasoning and the veggies were overcooked so they were rather soft. Kiddos got the mac'n'cheese and the chicken quesadilla. The Mac looked exactly like boxed Kraft Mac. At least the quesadilla was pretty filled with chicken. All the sides were kind of meh, and everything was pretty heavy on salt. The tater tots were the best side, probably because hubby ordered them extra crispy. My tavern chips were mostly floppy, so they were deep fried enough. And the fries could have used a bit longer deep frying as well.
We have gone to Hickory 4-5 times and it seems to go down hill each time. Tonight’s to go order was missing a lot of ingredients stated on each item depiction. No chicken on the chicken nachos. Smokehouse burger was missing the mushrooms and onion straws. Chicken tender were burnt along with very little sweet potatoe fries. For the money we did not receive the quality or the quantity as if we were in the restaurant. Not sure what’s going on with Hickory Tavern in Holly Springs. It’s getting worse and worse lately
All the bartenders here are outstanding, especially Zeke. He is a people person who really understands the business. I have been coming here for years and it just keeps getting better because of him. Keep up the great work. #Trump2024🇺🇸
