Success! Thanks for posting your review of Hickory Street. You’ve done the world some good today.

Do you like bad food?

It's a shame I have to give this place one and not zero stars. Where do I even begin with this review? The service was non-existent, the food sub-par, and the ambiance leaves much to be desired. Take your money elsewhere, unless you like bugs in your food!

What happen?

Use to work downtown several years back and this place was a weekly lunch spot. Decided to take my son there this past weekend, seated ourselves on the patio. We were surrounded by dirty tables. After 10 minutes a guy with a huge black eye asks for drink orders. After seeing him back and forth 2 times I asked about our drink orders he then asked for them again. After seeing him come outside yet again 2 more times I d... view more

This place has horrible service, terrible food, feels dirty, and basically misses the mark on quality. The only positive is the location. Avoid going here if you want to be impressed.

Everything you'd expect from an Austin original

So i recently moved here from denver and work downtown. Looking for something ""austin"", my collegues told me about hickory street. This place is really cool, except right now, since apparently the a.c.'s are under repair and it's a bit hot inside the main dining area. The food was exceptional, the portions were big, and the heat made the margaritas go down really easy. Look, this place isn't fancy, a bit grungy, an... view more

This place is BAD and not in a good way

Waited for over 30 minutes for food and then the order was WRONG. The waitress took the order then disappeared, came back about 10 minutes later with the drinks and disappeared again, came back about 10 minutes later promising to refill glasses and never came back until the food was served 35 minutes later from the time it was ordered. Now how hard is it to cook a Breakfast TACO???? When I explained my order was wr... view more

I've been a frequent customer at Hickory Street Bar & Grill for several years as I work within walking distance of the restaurant. The last year or so, they've undergone some changes which I didn't think were too bad (although I preferred it the way it always had been).\r \r Today, I went with a co-worker and the first thing I noticed was how hot it was in the restaurant. I asked if they could turn the A/C cool... view more

The food was good but the place could use a little more TLC

We went to Hickory Street Bar and Grill last night and were impressed by the outside seating but the inside left a bit to be desired. The place was not very busy (probably 25% full) yet the food bars were in desperate need of attention and the floors were in definite need of a broom. The food, on the other hand, was very good and there were large portions. The price is good for the amount of food you get. We will... view more

Pretty lunch spot, Not-so-great food

The patio area is a great place for a drink after work, but the food is lacking. I've been there 3 times and everytime they are out of whatever I choose to order, whether it is food or drink. The wait staff is great and always has other recommendations, but please take it off the menu if you aren't going to keep it in stock. On one visit, the burger was way under cooked, but was quickly remedied when pointed out. ... view more

Great neighborhood bar and grill

I go here all the time and am never dissatisfied with the service or the food. Nice and cozy covered outdoor patio for all weather dining and indoor dinning area with a quaint bar. $2.00 and $3.00 pints all the time. Great value for dropping in for 1 beer or a night of boozing. I like the hamburgers and the hot wings. Excellent downtown location.
