Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Original Hick'Ry Pit. You’ve done the world some good today.

My Breakfast spot since 1975

I've been eating breakfast at The Original Hick'ry Pit 5 to 6 days a week since '75. The food is awesome, best bacon or sausage & eggs anywhere. Great steaks, pork chops and ribs too. The Traveler's Special is the best deal anywhere. The servers have become some of my best friends. The ""Counter Culture"" boasts the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Always, great food, lots of it, bottomless cup of good coff... view more

BEWARE - Waitress verbally assaulted our 2 yr. old daughter

Beware! NOT Child/Family Friendly!!! Tonight a waitress of by the name of Toni/Antoinette verbally assaulted our 2 year old daughter, spoke loudly and badly (insulting) about us with other customers at an adjacent table, and then had the nerve to stare at us and stand over our table before I had to ask her if she wanted something. I went up the front lobby to ""cool"" down and took my daugter and spoke with the h... view more

Disgusting Food, Hygiene, Employees...

I have nothing good to report on this establishment. *Pies are made with artificial flavoring and not real fruit (watch out for mold on the bottom of the crust) *Employees don't wash their hands after the restroom or before preparing food *Do not ask for an extra wedge of tomato or you will be charged for a tomato salad (which consists of a single slim wedge of tomato on a bed of wilted iceberg lettuce) *Cramped... view more

Ich habbe gelost eine fortz

The pastrami sandwiches only a Rumanian could love. Twelve dancing bears with tsitsis were a real improvement on the potato salad.

Great Americana

This is the great old fashioned American restaurant. Huge portions, experienced waitresses who know how to keep the coffee hot and food coming. It is pricey for what it is, but the quality is excellent and the meals are big enough for two or for a left-over meal the next day. I love the open faced smoked turkey sandwich, and the chicken fried steak and eggs for breakfast. I have become a coffee snob over the year... view more

Pretty Freakin' Bad!

In a word: BAD. The food was mediocre, the ""service"" was spotty. I've never seen such a dumpy restaurant try to turn a table so fast when no one was waiting. Our waitress seemed in a hurry to get rid of us, brought us the wrong check., and never even asked to refill my coffee or water. We had to practically beg her to offer us dessert. This place hasn''t been updated decor-wise since about 1965. My BBQ ch... view more

Throwback Still A Cut Above

I have fond memories of delicious meats and pies that were served at the old Hick'ry Pit in Strawberry Shopping Center in Marin County. So imagine my reaction when I was transplanted to arguably even an earlier era than my '70s childhood while enjoying my first trip to the Walnut Creek Hick'ry Pit. The lively, occasionally bouffant-topped female servers, elicit memories of diners past, while the anachronistic but d... view more

Odd Service

Overall, dining at the Hick'ry Pit was interesting. The food (ribs, fries, cobb salad) was really good. But the service was horrible! Our waitress forgot to bring my soup, tried to refill my diet coke with ice tea (because that's what the table next to ours was drinking) and grabbed her tip off the table before we got up to leave. I would go back, but not to sit in her section!
