Hickory House Ribs crams both its Aspen menu and Parker menu with hearty entrees loaded with slow-smoked meats and made-from-scratch sides. The lodge-style eatery imports its award-winning baby-back ribs ($16.49–$18.99/rack) from Denmark, where the pigs fatten up naturally without antibiotics or mandatory ice-cream quotas, and slow-smokes each slab with a combination of hickory and oak branches. Barbecue dinners ($9.99–$13.99) arrange hefty portions of smoked sausage, pork shoulder, or beef brisket alongside mounds of baked beans, coleslaw, or crisp fries. Chefs hand-cut each battered and fried loop in small, medium, and large orders of onion rings ($4–$8), and tender pork ($5.29–$6.75) or beef sandwiches ($5.79–$7.25) attribute their culinary charm to 12 hours of slow-smoking, homemade barbecue sauce, and rigorous etiquette lessons.
Hickory House Ribs
Hickory House Ribs is named for its signature racks of baby-back ribs, a combination of high-grade meat imported from Denmark and specialty sauce made in-house. The ribs have claimed numerous awards and accolades for their succulent flavor, which begins with pork ribs from hogs fed all-natural and lean diets. The ribs then spend hours slow-smoking in a combination of hickory and oak. Once they get to Hickory House Ribs, chefs coat them in thick housemade sauce, made from scratch. The restaurant also serves up other classic barbecue fare, from certified Angus steaks to smoked pork shoulder. Each kind of barbecued meat is seasoned and smoked daily, and served with baked beans and coleslaw each made fresh every day.
