Always eat here when I'm in town and have missed it ever since I moved away. Not all of the food is great but most of it is and the prices are fair. I never have room for ice cream, but they are very good at it and have a big selection. The sliced meats are okay. Smoked chicken, sausage, ribs and burgers are all very good. The saucy southerner is always a crowd pleaser! Top recommendation from me though is the BEEF RIBS! seriously I don't know how they do it, but it's the only place I've ever had truly delicious beef ribs (I've been about 8-10 places that even serve them, they are few and far between but none taste like Hickory Park's)

Food is average and very reasonable. Do not like the chaotic atmosphere and servers never know who ordered what. 30% of the time appetizers arrive simultaneously with main course. I don't necessarily blame them as they are trying to take care of so many people. Would deserve 5 stars if I were rating them as a cafeteria which they are probably more similar to, but I don't think they are selling themselves as such.

Portions have appeared to get slightly smaller over the decades, but the price has remained affordable, and the quality is second to none. This is THE must not miss restaurant in Ames.

My favorite place in town to eat. Reasonably priced, friendly staff and variety of food! A place you don't want to miss when your coming into town for a football or basketball game!
