Recently, I had the responsibility to provide ribs for my rib club that meets once a month. This is no ordinary rib club. On the evening of the event we had present several Tarrant County and municipal judges, several former NBA and NFL players, the Mayors of Southlake, Keller, Trophy Club and several other cities, the General Manager of the Southlake Hilton hotel and numerous other discriminating barbecue officianados. These folks are not easily impressed and have had the opportunity to experience barbecue from all over Texas, Oklahoma and other parts of the country. To the person, they believed the Hochatown Barbeque was among the best they have ever tasted. “The meat was falling off the bone and the flavor was unsurpassed”.

I also have a cabin near Tom Verace’s Hochatown Barbeque near Broken Bow, Oklahoma and my family would revolt if we did not stop to get some of this barbeque at each visit. If you get the chance, stop in and say “hi” to Tom and treat yourself and your family to some of the best barbeque around. You’ll be glad you did.

I want to recommend Tom Verace and the Hochatown BBQ and grill. They have catered events for us on several occasions and the food has been great! They always deliver on time and the portions were ideal.

“On our 100th year anniversary when the food had to be right, we called Hochatown BBQ and Grill Catering. They were on time, the food was great and we had service with a smile. We would use them again for an event in our church.

Thanks for catering a great meal for our motorcoach group who recently stayed at Lakeview Lodge at Beaver’s Bend. The food was delicious and our travelers were impressed with your staff who served the food. We will definitely be using Hochatown BBQ the next time we are in your area.

The BBQ you catered for our reunion was excellent- all of it! Everyone commented on how tender the meat was and I LOVED the potato salad!!! Thanks so much for everything – you were so easy to work with and I appreciate all you did for us.

Tom to say you did a good a good job is an understatement. Hochatown BBQ & Grill was a big hit for our family reunion. Our only regret we had was not having them cater our dinner both nights we were there. We loved their a la carte menu as we were able to customize our dinner options to our family’s needs at a very affordable price. The best part about our experience was they brought everything we needed to have an enjoyable, stress-free dinner. The meat was tender and ready to eat when Tom’s team arrived. Thanks for everything, we’ll make sure to have you cater our next year’s family reunion.

Just writing to let you know how much we enjoyed your BBQ. I live in the BBQ capital (Kansas City) and the brisket we had in your restaurant was every bit as good as any you can buy here at home. If I am ever in your neck of the woods again, I will definitely stop in to get more!!

I get pulled pork everywhere I go, and have updated my favorite place for it–including Kansas City, Wichita and most recent favorite in Oklahoma City. Had it at Hocahtown BBQ on 4/11/14, and now have a new #1 spot for the best pulled pork. It was yummy!!

Tom,
The BBQ was excellent! Everyone loved it and would highly recommend you and your staff. Especially liked that you brought it in the heated container to keep it warm until we were ready to serve it. On a scale of 1-10, you’re are 10+++!

Thanks again,
Sylvia Bryant

Arkansas and all said it was the Best we have tasted.
