Another food truck: Official Bar-B-Q

Kris Maples and his 7-year-old daughter, Mia, in the Offical Bar-B-Q truck.Another food truck needs added to the roster.

Official Bar-B-Q operates out of a  stationary trailer owned by Kris Maples, who is a barbecue chef by day and an official for youth sports leagues all over Wichita by night. The truck never moves from 241 S. Hydraulic.

Maples opened the truck in October and serves items such as brisket, links, pulled pork and more. During basketball season, he’s open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. When basketball season ends and his officiating duties lighten up, Maples operates the truck from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.  I’m hearing lots of good reviews of the food all of a sudden.
