Frequently Asked Questions:

What makes Big Tex BBQ different than all the other BBQ caterers out there?
Big Tex BBQ Catering offers not only great tasting Texas barbecue, but also a Fun, Western-Themed party atmosphere. We bring Music, Authentic Western Decorations, a Photographer, and Fun Games for your entire group to enjoy. We Cook...YOU PARTY!

Why are your prices are higher than other quotes I've seen?
We're not your typical BBQ caterer. In addition to our good food and awesome service, we provide Country-Western Music, Themed-Decorations, Group Games, Party Favors, Photos and more. If you just want to feed a group of folks we may not be your best bet, but if you want to have a Fun and Festive Western Cookout, we're the only ones in Texas to offer that level of service. 

Why should I choose Big Tex BBQ instead of another caterer?
We do much more than just show up with food. Our fun music, games, photos and more provide your guests an experience they will remember. We're the only caterers in Texas that provides a money back guarantee. Don't risk being embarrassed by another caterer that shows up late, runs out of food, or doesn't have professional insurance credentials. We make you look like a HERO! 

I like your packages. Can I substitute or make changes to them?
Substitutions are available for a small up-charge per person. Let us know what items you want or you have the option to build your own menu.

Do you have vegetarian options?
We offer a variety of vegetarian alternatives and side dish choices on our menu. If you have a special vegetarian request let us know. We love vegetarians...more meat 'fer us!

Do you provide tent, table, and chair rentals? 
Yes. If you need tables, chairs, or a tent we can provide that through our Party Rental service.

How soon do I need to place my order?
Catering orders require an advance notice of 5 days or more. However, because availability is limited, you should order early and place your deposit so you don't lose your date.

I don't have a final head count. Should I contact you anyway?
Yes. If you have a definite date in mind and a general idea of your headcount let us know. We can get your date locked in and you can adjust your headcount up to a week in advance.

I want Big Tex to cater my event! How do I confirm my date?
