The Hickory Bar-B-Que takes Dominic’s place for a business lunch!

Well, UD and Miami Valley Hospital finally realized, you need to have a place other than a chain open for lunch in the area to take your prospective hires. Sure, they’ve been at Coco’s a lot, but, on Brown Street, since Dominic’s closed, there hasn’t been much in the way of unique.

The Hickory- also known as “Joe Kisses” and the “Ol Hickory” or “Old Hickory” – although it has no relation anymore to the other two Old Hickory’s anymore- has been around since as long as I’ve been alive. I was a little perturbed  at them years ago- when they tore down the old “Westward Ho” cafeteria for a parking lot expansion- but, that’s “progress.”

From the DBJ:

Hickory Bar-B-Que, located at 1082 Brown St., will open for lunch starting Monday, Nov. 17….

“People from the hospital, the University of Dayton, wanted to know if we would start serving lunch,” Fisher said. “Now’s the time to give it a shot.”

Hickory will be open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at which time the restaurant will switch over to its dinner menu. To handle the increased business, Fisher is adding six new employees, bringing the employment total to about 40.

The restaurant, which opened in 1962, offers a variety of sandwiches, salads and other entrees on its lunch menu. Prices vary, with salads costing between $1.75 and $7.25, sandwiches from $4.25 to $6.75 and entrees from $6.95 to $13.75.

Fisher said people can find their regular dinner options, such as bar-b-que ribs and chicken, just in smaller portions.

Hickory Bar-B-Que will be open for lunch Monday through Friday.

The Hickory is one of my favorites places, that I don’t remember to go to that often. But, maybe the 4pm line won’t be as long now that you can get your BBQ fix twice a day.

    I like this place, but I have not been in a year plus. It is well worn and needs a bit of elbow grease, but the food is fab.

    I will support it now bc of lunch (over the last year I have become much more of an out-to-eat lunch guy than a out-to-eat dinner guy.)
    I will also support it bc David bother to make a post on it and well that is good enough for me.
