    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!

    Simply AMAZING Food and Excellent Service!

    We hired Pete and his team to cater our wedding this Summer. It was a crazy time due to Covid, but Pete made everything painless. He communicated with us and answered all of our questions and concerns. On the day of our wedding, everything was perfect. He and his staff went above and beyond to ensure that everything was set-up just right, and made sure that all of the pre-cautions we discussed for Covid were in place. The food was Simply Amazing and like I said, his staff was excellent. We would highly recommend Pete's Firehouse BBQ for your wedding or any event!
