Fabulous Barbecue! 8/6/2006

This mom and pop barbecue place is successfully expanding and still maintains the quality and standards it has always had. We started going here to eat several years ago when they were in their original location. They have since moved to a larger facility, but the food is just the same-and it is delicious. They offer a variety of barbecued meats (beef, pork, turkey, chicken). My personal favorite is the chopped beef brisket. The sauces come mild and spicy. There are a wide variety of sides to choose from. The potato salad is to die for-as well as slaw, ranch beans, french fries and a vegetable of the day. This is not a fancy place. It is a place that offers great food at reasonable prices and wonderful customer service. We often grab carry out to take home with us to Effingham. Champaign/Urbana has a lot of restaurants, but this is my families number one choice when we are in town. more

Real Texas barbecue by the pound, platter or sandwich

Owner Message
  • Welcome to Hickory River Smokehouse, where Texas barbecue is our passion! Our quality beef brisket, chicken, turkey, and pork are treated with a dry rub - a flavorful way to keep the meat?s natural juices from escaping. After hours over a hickory-wood fire in our on-site smokehouse, the meat is harmonized with a generous side or drizzle of our spicy, tangy Texas-style BBQ sauce! Complete this barbecue phenomenon with one (or more) of our mouth-watering side dishes.

    Hickory River Smokehouse serves real Texas barbecue, in the tradition of the legendary smokehouses of the Lone Star state. In our on-premise smokehouse, we apply our special blend of seasonings (known as "dry rub") to the highest quality beef brisket, chicken, turkey and pork.

    You can?t get taste like this anywhere else in the Midwest!

    We can cater your event.
