Hickory Tavern - Gastonia

We stopped in to take advantage of cash back on our upside app and so happy we did. Our server was awesome (wish I could remember her name). The food was delicious too. My picky son even asked to go back for their chicken strips. I enjoyed the Carolina Pulled Pork Tacos and my husband enjoyed his Smokehouse Burger.
Very large place with plenty of seating and TVs to watch. The beer selection at the bar was great. Server addressed us quickly and was extremely friendly. The restaurant is filled with funny song quotes along the walls. I got the pretzels and cheese and the pretzels were soft, hot, and delicious. I also ordered a power bowl and added a few ingredients and it came out just as I ordered it and tasted delicious. Worth a stop if youre in town.
Well.. its a bar. There are multiple screens everywhere with all sorts of sports things. There was an auction of sports memorabilia. It makes you wonder what the appeal is to go for lunch or dinner while people hoot and holler for someone being athletic on TV. I get indigestion just watching the excited spectators. (That statement is in no way against athletes. Professionals that work to be able to perform at that level are impressive!) The food was above average for simple bar fair. I had the hamburger while the man had chicken tenders. . Both were tasty cooked to order. I enjoyed the server with her quarky recommendations. Its not a quiet place but probably fun during tournaments.

First time here to this chain of restaurant I've never dined here before overall fantastic menu wonderful excellent service very helpful friendly was on top of everything. The only thing I can complain was my sweet potato fries were soggy and not crispy enough but other than that I would recommend dining at this establishment.
I give a 4 star review based on the food in these photos, it was amazing!!! This was 2 YEARS AGO and I cant review or post publicly my last couple experiences, I no longer visit this restaurant.
