Henn House Barbeque FAQ

We love getting to know our community, clients, and food truck fans. Every day we get questions from people wanting to know more about Henn House Barbeque! Here is a list of Frequently Asked Questions to hopefully get you started and see why Henn House Barbeque is different.


1. Where is Henn House Barbeque located?

2. Are you going to open a restaurant?

Although we know to "never say never"...opening a restaurant is not the plan. We love being able to have personal communication is each one of our catering clients and don't want a restaurant interfering with that. The Food Truck is a great middle ground for us!

There is no minimum for catering! Planning a family gathering for 12 or a wedding for 1,000 we can accommodate you!
