Hickory River Smokehouse originated in Urbana, Illinois. You might say, our Urbana folks, were our taste testers! This college town, welcomed, supported and patronized our restaurant since the first day we opened in January of 1995. We must be doing something right, because our loyal customers visit us regularly! Featuring the best Smokehouse BBQ in Illinois, the Urbana Hickory River restaurant's BBQ is Smokin' delicious!

Customer Reviews

"We ordered enough food to serve 20 for our family graduation party for our daughter! When we picked it up that day it was perfect and everyone loved it. Thanks! Always a great experience with Hickory River!"

(Mick Noteboom)

"Fantastic food. I loved the polish sausage and can admit the apple sauce was the best I have ever had. The service and atmosphere was terrific. This will be a regular stop from now on when I pass through Urbana."

(Mathew Garrett Reames)
