BBQ

Best BBQ In Town!

When it comes to tracking down the best BBQ joints in town, sometimes it can get a little difficult. You live in a town where many tourists pass through, but sometimes you want that real deal authentic BBQ taste rather than going to a spot where it is overcrowded and it takes an hour to get your food. That place exists and this is what it is:

  • Hickory Sticks BBQ is the best place in town to go when you’re craving some real deal BBQ. This “Texas-style barbecue platters, sandwiches & traditional sides served in rustic, roadhouselike digs” is a local favorite and understandably so. They are notorious for having some of the best brisket in town and some of the best sides! If you are in the mood for some classic barbecue in a Texas-styled environment, then it is highly suggested that you make your way on over to Hickory Sticks and order yourself a delicious platter.
