    Absolutely amazing!!

    Hickory was so amazing, I am so happy we found them for our rustic barn experience. We had so many compliments on the bbq food from our guests! The owner Steve was very helpful and always responded so quickly to any questions I had. The menu you perfect for us and had a little bit of everything for everyone.
    Their staff was on top of everything on my special day from setting up, cooking, serving, bartending, and cleaning up! It took so much stress off my shoulders and they even brought me some pigs in a blanket while I was taking photos so I wouldn’t miss anything during cocktail hour! That I will NOT forget.
    10/10 such a gem

    Fantastic Catering, Food & Flexibility

    Steve (owner) is the nicest guy to work with. What's even better is the mouth watering food. We thoughts the ribs, brisket and pulled pork were the best. Then I discovered the blackened catfish. Steve let us design a menu with multiple appetizers and entrees for our small wedding. He also provided open bar options and dessert which was scrumptious. My husband love the blackout cake the best. There was also a blueberry (looking) crumb cake that tasted like heaven. His baker, Kristi, made us mini cupcakes and a gorgeous chocolate wedding cake which was smooth and addictive and so delicious. I typically hate wedding cake — It's tasteless, too thin and boring — but ours was beyond tasty. See the pic! Hire Steve & Hickory BBQ. Lovely food, people, chef and catering team!

    Simply amazing

    There were two great things about Hickory - the food and working with Steve. The food was delicious - we received amazing compliments from our guest. I'd say our wedding was 'upscale' (not black tie, but not casual - we got married at Handsome Hollow) and BBQ worked great. We served food family style and people raved about the brisket and mashed potatoes. The apps were also awesome, Steve helped bring some of my Pinterest visions to life including chicken and waffle bites for apps and hot soft pretzels as a late-night snack. The bar package is an amazing value and Steve helped me customize it to exactly what I wanted within my pretty tight budget. Next, Steve. Steve was amazing to work with. I had a lot of questions, changes and requests, but he made everything work and brought everything I hoped for to life. He is extremely quick to respond over email and phone, and was really calm and easy to work with when we had to change our wedding a few times due to COVID. He had extremely reasonable pricing for what I thought was really great food, drinks and service. I also didn't have a planner but his team took care of setting everything up and breaking it all down. Would not hesitate to hire Steve and his team again!!
