Hannahs wedding 2022

Food is always a hard thing to grasp when it comes to weddings but Pete鈥檚 BBQ has it down! I got more compliments on the food being served than anything! The pork and chicken were perfectly tender and the corn is to DIE for. Thank you pete and team for making my wedding food the talk of the decade!!

Best food!

While in the planning process, my husband and I agreed that serving good food was a MUST at our wedding. Pete's Firehouse BBQ came highly recommended by our venue and we are so glad we decided to give him a try. He was gracious enough to let us do a tasting before booking and within 5 minutes my husband and I knew we needed to have Pete cater our wedding. More so than the food tasting amazing, Pete is such a nice guy. He is personable, honest, and so hard working. When wedding day came, Pete and his team showed up on time to get everything ready. We chose the option of having the meat cooked onsite and it added such a great touch to the day. Our guests absolutely RAVED about how it was the best meal they've ever had at a wedding. When walking around, we noticed our guests had eaten every last bite from their plate and many even opted to get seconds! Thank you Pete's Firehouse BBQ for the great food and even better service!

Best decision!

Pete is amazing and so easy to work with! He's professional, responsive, and he just thinks of all the small details when decorating the catering station. i.e what color scheme do you have, what flowers are you using..

And the food... Oh my gosh the food is so GOOD! We got tri tip, chicken, potato medley, vegetables, salad, and Mac and cheese with bacon. I can't stop thinking about the food that's how good it was. Every single guest had good things to say about the food, even my Texans are in love with it!
Best decision you'll make is booking with Pete!
