Rockin' 5K BBQ & Shack means good food, good times, and family. In fact, family is so important to us we put it right in our name: 5K = 5 Kids! Our catering and vending we like to call it Rockin 5K BBQ because we are always on the move! Our home for our BBQ is the 5K BBQ Shack and it's located in Manchester, Iowa.


We are blessed to have our children be a part of our business. Our oldest daughter loves being in charge of orders & serving, our two oldest sons are dad's cooking sidekicks, and enjoy serving people as well and our two youngest, well they can be quite the taste testers, but also love to help seat and serve drinks to our customers!

Our passion for family and community extends to our delicious BBQ as well. Rockin 5K BBQ has placed at many cook-offs and also won 2nd place at the Iowa State Fair for ribs and 1st place at the Jones County Fair for ribs. We take pride in our cooking and will make sure your event runs smoothly so your guests end up with great memories and full tummies!

Let us get your next event Rockin'!
