While our roots are in Eastern and Western NC barbecue, Southland BBQ by Rocky Top Catering offers a menu chocked full of regional barbecue cuisines that satisfies everyone’s taste buds. In-house smoked NC pulled pork, Texas style beef brisket and St. Louis ribs are just some of the many regional specialties our chefs have perfected. Pair any of these with our scratch made sides, sauces and desserts and you’ve got a meal that will be the talk of the town. We can drop off and deliver to your home or office. Or let us fully cater your next event and share the Southland love with family and friends.

A Taste of Home

Our barbecue roots began in North Carolina, but our chefs are versed in “all things BBQ,” including NC pulled pork, St. Louis style ribs and Texas style beef brisket. Our in-house smoking process captures all the delicious, mouth-watering flavors and aromas. And then there’s the sides, fixin’s and desserts — all scratch made using fresh, quality ingredients. Home cooking that you don’t have to cook!

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top did an excellent job catering our wedding. They were incredibly responsive to every request we had, and worked with us to create a very unique and personalized menu based on our family backgrounds. We also appreciated the goodie bag they left for us to take home following our wedding weekend. I would recommend Rocky Top to everyone.

  • 5 star review  We used RTC for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding. We had so many compliments on all the food that we served at both events. Vicki is so personal and coordinated everything from rentals, timeline, food suggestions, etc. We would recommend RTC to any couple getting married, office party, holiday party, or for any event! They were with out a doubt the best caterer we consulted with and we look forward to using them in the future!
