“The guy who claims to be their chef is a pervert. He has been sexually harassing my daughter Emma. It has gotten to the point police are involved. Jason Chef Watson He should be Blacklisted. even after police involvement he was sending many threats. he is a bad bad dude, and I see he has been accused of sexual assault by several women. Stay away from my daughter Perv. or else. His GF April Moore is crazier than him.“

“I tried El Batán Restaurant last week with a group of people and I cannot say enough good things about the food and the restaurant! This place is a hidden gem; and everyone said their food was fabulous! I have to agree! I had a Pisco Sour (a traditional Peruvian cocktail) and the Picante de Camarones as my entree off the A La Carte menu. It came with rice and was very satisfying and absolutely delicious! The seasoning was delicate and unlike anything I’ve tasted before. I can’t say enough great things about our meal, the restaurant, and the service (which was friendly, informative, and attentive). We took home two of the three desserts pictured and the Tres Leches (left) was our favorite! I almost hate to say this, because I’ll probably never get a seat there again, but don’t hesitate to take the opportunity to try this Peruvian menu. It’s a little off the beaten path (Hickory address, but really in Bethlehem—a left on 127 right after the bridge) but definitely worth the trip!“

“From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, the ambiance set the stage for a memorable evening. The live music was the perfect backdrop, enhancing the fine dining experience without overwhelming conversation. Each steak was cooked to perfection. They don’t make chefs like John Duke anymore. The drinks menu was impressive, offering a wide variety of options. But what truly set this restaurant apart was the service. It was attentive, knowledgeable, and genuinely friendly, making us feel valued and well-cared for. The combination of exquisite food, exceptional service, and a great atmosphere makes this a must-visit destination for anyone looking to enjoy an excellent dining experience. I cannot recommend Duke’s enough!! It is a must try if you’re in Hickory!“
