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  As a part of the event industry, I have experienced their food hundreds of times and it's always a delight. From quick bites passed on trays, to full, multi-course meals, they are professional and will have guests talking about the food long after the event has passed.

  • 5 star review  Rocky Top Catering catered the rehearsal dinner for my son and daughter-in-law. We went with selections from the Southland BBQ menu. We had the Southern Fried Chicken, BBQ Pulled Pork and Texas Brisket. Everyone raved about the food and it was all so beautifully presented. Carol Sasseen made the entire process so easy. The staff on site were polite, friendly and professional. I could not be more pleased. Rocky Top Catering knocked out of the park. Thank you!!!!

  • 5 star review  Wow, what a pleasant experience. We had our Daughter's wedding and the Menu was a combination of American & Indian Fusion. I was very skeptical about they handling the Indian dishes and was constantly worried & arguing with my daughter about talk them in to hiring Indian Chef. We had few rounds of tasting and was not much impressed so suggested few things and asked them to go and eat at our favorite Indian Restaurants in the area and boy, what they did was simply amazing. The Chef Boe and his team along with Vicki did a great job with the food served. For other events before the wedding, we had Indian food catered by a leading Indian Restaurant but many guests admitted that the food served by Rocky Top was a better.
