Back in the 1860s, the word chuck was common slang for food. A chuck wagon was a special type of field kitchen used for storing and transporting perishable food and cooking equipment on the prairies of the United States and Canada.

Chuck wagons were an essential part of westbound-settlers’ wagon trains and were also used to feed travelling workers such as cowboys and loggers. Typical food items included beans, salted meats, coffee and sourdough biscuits.

Howdy Folks!

A century and a half later, here we are with a new take on keeping hungry wanderers happy. At Chuck Wagon Kitchen, we’re passionate about providing fresh and tasty good quality street food with the flavour of the old Wild West.

Our specialities are American-style filled sub rolls, oven-baked wedges and jacket potatoes. We offer a good selection of delicious, wholesome fillings – and will be happy to adapt or customise our menu on request.

You’ll find us at various food festivals, music festivals and other events throughout the year. You can also book Chuck Wagon Kitchen for your private function.

Served with sour cream.


Beef and beans – a cowboy classic

Thick, minced beef mild chilli with a spoonful of our own cowboy beans, loaded with grated cheddar cheese and finished off with salad leaves, sliced tomato and red onion. Served with sour cream – and, if you want an extra kick, jalapenos.

That’s just a taste of what we got cookin’ in Chuck Wagon Kitchen

Legendary Comfort Food (V)

We take four types of beans, add chopped tomatoes and our secret seasoning and slow-cook these simple ingredients into a satisfying wondermeal.

These are the same beans we use in our Roy Rogers dishes, but we keep them meat-free, so vegetarians can enjoy this hearty classic too.

We think they go best with wedges or jacket potato. But also we’re happy to serve ’em in a sub.

We’re a-comin’!
