We have a legacy of flavors and a dedicated commitment to barbecue excellence. We have built our restaurant and catering business on consistency, quality, freshness and friendly attentive service. Our customized menu structure enables you to package together your favorite entrée items and sides for your catered events.

  • Attention to detail throughout the whole process

We know how to make this the simplest, most memorable party you have ever planned.  All it takes is one call and your event will be all organized for you!  We cater events from 30-1000 people and our approach makes the process easy for all, from set up to clean up. There are no tough planning decisions as you can choose from our tried and true most popular BBQ menu packages.

Our simple packages eliminate the need for hours of inquiries, estimates and coordinating. Everything has been pre-negotiated to bring you the highest quality event at the best possible price. We have dozens of venues to select from, from ocean-view sites to local historic landmarks (see our venue section for details).

We cater events at the beach, your home, company, or outside venue, and will incorporate your creative ideas to make it your event from start to finish. Any and all types of events are perfect for an American barbecue and we love road trips!

I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for catering our wedding! We had the BEST time and all of our guests enjoyed the food. Your employee was incredible.

The American BQQ was a hit at our wedding — everyone could not stop talking about how great it was! They are professional, responsive, affordable, and delicious. The entire staff was amazing and they’re extremely helpful throughout the planning process (They brought up things I didn’t even think of.) I can’t recommend them enough!

The food for our Summer Outing was excellent. Everyone from your team was a pleasure to work with from the very first email I sent, to the servers and cooks at the event. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events.

We’re back from our honeymoon and just wanted to say THANK YOUUU! So many people commented on how delicious the food was. Paul and I enjoyed a generous helping of BBQ on our wedding day and from the leftovers! You guys did a wonderful job and we are so glad we chose you to help make our day so special. We’ll see you at the Rowley restaurant soon!

Wedding Catering Customer

Thank you, thank you, thank you for a wonderful BBQ. The food was delicious. Your staff was great and supportive to make sure everything was perfect for us. There was so much to eat, we enjoyed it again the day after. Thank you for making our kick-off to summer a hit. We will certainly be seeing you again.

Corporate Catering Customer

Michele and her team were amazing! We had a multicultural wedding where we merged BBQ with Nigerian food. Michelle worked with us to make a buffet where our guests were able to try both food types. Everyone was raving about the food and I was so thankful we went through a company that was so punctual, organized and produced such a delicious meal! Thanks so much!
