About Us:

Our business began many years ago when we were roasting pigs for friends and family on special occasions. Since then, we have expanded our family business, "Word of Mouth", into a travelling BBQ and catering service in northeast Ohio. You can now spot our trailers at various festivals in Ohio where we will be making our "Big Fat Pulled Pork Sandwich", pulled pork potatoes, ribs, and other favorites. Our children have helped us grow our business since they were 7 and 11 years old; now they are knowledgeable enough to be out on their own running a crew for a festival or other catered event

We have had the pleasure of working with many brides & grooms helping them plan the menu for their big day as well as making sure we accommodate their dietary needs. We value our business as a family owned and operating food service, and take every sale and encounter with our customers personal.

Services Offered:

We are equipped to cater an event of up to 300 guests. Word of Mouth BBQ cooks on site for parties of 130 or more. We provide a custom menu to fit your budget and needs, as well as the buffle style dinner with bright stainless steel chaffing dishes. We can also provide hors d'oeuvres, place settings, and after dinner table clean up. Please see our wix website to view our menu options, or reach out with any questions.

Best BBQ around

My guests raved about the food all nite. The owner is a delight to work with. Her husband and a helper came and they were very nice as well. They were right on schedule arriving and with the dinner time. I changed head counts and options a few times and Cheryl was more than accommodating. Will hire again for other parties.

Excellent from beginning to end.

Used them for my daughter's wedding on 5/12/23 and the service and food was excellent. Not one complaint from any of the 125 guests which rarely happens with anything. I would definitely use their catering again and recommend it to anyone.
