From Our Biggest Fans...

The lunch was fabulous as I expected. Your husband was cool and gracious enough to set up the table for us. Everyone really liked the beef brisket. The baked beans were so tasty I took some home to eat with rice. I give your catering company 5 out of 5 stars!

We have nothing but excellent things to say about the job that was done on Friday for our company picnic! The food was delicious, the staff were friendly and quick, and the setup was more than we expected! Additionally, working with you Michelle was so easy and made the planning stress free!

We will definitely keep your services in mind for future events!
Thank you for everything!

I hired Hickory for a backyard bbq for a grad party and it was nothing short of amazing. There menu is very diverse and Michelle was great in dealing with my indecisiveness. I finally decided on my menu and I couldn't of been happier. The food was fantastic, the staff was kind, courteous and very conscientious. I will recommend Hickory BBQ to anyone who's looking for great food, easy booking and friendly staff. I look forward to hiring your company again. Thank you to everyone at Hickory that made my event a great success!!read more

I'm addicted to Daley's Detroit Style Steak Rub. It wakes up any cut of meat. And it's superb in mashed potatoes and homemade chip dip. It goes well with just about anything, it's just that good! Thank you, Dale.read more

Dale and Michelle have catered a few events for me and everybody raved about the food that they BBQ'd. They have always showed up early and made sure that everything went off without a worry. I would strongly recommend that you use them for all of your events. I know that they are really busy so you have to book them quite a ways in advance.read more

Dale and Michelle and their hard-working staff. Have catered many formal events for me personally. And have always done an exceptional job. They were there for us when my father-in-law died. Not only were they there to provide an excellent meal, they were there to support us emotionally. You don't find many people in the world as loving and caring and as there. If they can they go out of your way to make you feel like family.read more

Dale provided the catering at a wedding in Folly Beach, SC this past weekend. He worked (like a madman) the entire weekend to make things just right and the food was absolutely awesome. The steak rub he makes and sells is the best I have ever had! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR and have Hickory BBQ & Grill cater your next special event!!!read more

Hickory BBQ and Grill…AMAZING BBQ!!! We booked Hickory BBQ in December for an August backyard wedding and we are so glad we did. From the moment we sampled their foods at our tasting in December we were hooked. The bride and groom often spoke of their excitement for the BBQ at their wedding even months in advance. Michelle and Dale are great people to work with. Michelle was on top of all the coordinating of contracts that I never felt I would miss a thing. She was very patient with my frequent emails and helped with the final coordination of the menu. Dale was on site a day in advance with his smoker and finalized the day timeline. I could not have asked for a better catering/service experience. I highly recommend Hickory BBQ and Grill. AMAZING BBQ!read more
