Made a trip back here after 13 years. I always compare any baby back ribs I get back to Hickory Park. It did not disappoint. They used to have a sour cream and raw red onion burger but it wasn't on the menu anymore. It was excellent though. Great family restaurant.

A must stop when in Ames. I've been enjoying their food for 17 years now and the latest trip did not disappoint!

Good size portions and damn tasty to boot! Easy access and huge seating areas. Very cool old pics of the area on the walls.

Wonderful family restaurant in what looks to be an old train depot! The down home cooking was loved by everyone including my picky eaters. An entire menu devoted just to shakes, ice cream, floats and more. A must stop if in area.

It's all about hickory smoked meats, great deserts, and a lot of drink options. They have been around awhile and it is easy to see why. The food and service are both excellent, the restaurant is clean and family friendly.

This is a BBQ restaurant on steroids. Sunday evening it was packed. We returned at lunch time Monday and it had a reasonable crowd but we got seated and served quickly.

If you are looking for a pulled pork sandwich, order the Saucy Southerner. It's a delicious combination of pork, beef and turkey simmered in barbecue sauce and served on a bun. Highly recommended!
