Barbecue served Chuckwagon Style ! 

Savor the sweet smoky smell of barbecue at Hotel Hickman Chuckwagon Barbecue.  The Hickman crew will be out on the green serving up authentic chuckwagon cooking with a heaping dose of cowboy style friendly attitude.  From pulled pork sandwiches to a full slab of smoked ribs doused in a whiskey BBQ sauce, there is nothing on the menu that does not tease the palate. 

Wild Violet Food Truck
