      We used Hickory BBQ & Grill to cater our wedding and they did not disappoint! Michelle was a total joy to work with... throughout the entire process. We had so many people come up to us during and after our wedding and compliment the food! They have a huge selection to pick from but we ended up going with the pulled pork, chicken, hash brown casserole, mac & cheese and garden salad. They brought their own food truck and prepared everything on site. They also provided servers, so guests didn't have to worry about clearing plates. If you are looking for a BBQ caterer for your wedding, look no further! I promise you will not regret it!read more

      They catered my daughter's baby shower. Food was delicious! They were SO easy to work with; always prompt responses... when I had questions. Food was delivered exactly on time and people are still asking me who catered it!. We also needed some gluten free options. I'm always a little anxious the first time I order gluten free from anyone but they were very knowledgeable about the ingredients of what they serve. The gluten free dishes were as delicious as everything else and now I know they are safe to order from. I will definitely be ordering from them again!read more

      We hired Hickory BBQ for my son's wedding. I thought the food was amazing. But even better was how many guests... stopped me, my wife, every family member I have and told us that this was the best BBQ they have ever eaten. We had brisket, pulled pork, mac and cheese, and baked beans. Every one of the dishes was outstanding. Michelle was amazing to work with in the pre-wedding planning so that the catering was the least stressful part of the wedding planning.read more

      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!
