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 catered BBQ our wedding. They were flexible and patient with our ever-changing plans, and were accommodating for our specific needs. I felt like they really listened to us and what we wanted, and they delivered exactly that on the day of! Everything was clean and COVID-safe. Many of our guests complimented the food. The shrimp & grits shooters, mini chicken & waffles, and brisket sliders were BOMB.

  • 5 star review  Absolutely amazing and highly recommend! They showed their true colors during a Pandemic and were amazing in ways they didn't have to be! Not only was everyone extremely helpful, but the food is also delicious! It's hard feeding a group of individuals via a catering menu and having good food, yet everyone from our wedding said it was great (we also thought so)! Highly recommend them!
