This Meyerland restaurant is not your typical barbecue joint, although a "joint" is what it is. Old Hickory Inn's menu includes decent chicken-fried steak and fried catfish, along with great-tasting gyros and rice pudding (both a testament to the owner's Greek heritage). As for the ´cue, the brisket and sausage are good, but the ribs are dry. The chicken is moist and has an excellent smoke flavor. Baked potatoes come with a choice of chopped beef, beef slices or chicken topping. The sauce here is dark, sweet and tangy.
