Austin’s #1 BBQ Caterer
We’re #1! We’re #1!
That’s right everyone. The company that has always been #1 in your hearts is actually the #1 BBQ caterer here in Central Texas! And, in case you were wondering, #1 when you google “bbq catering austin TX” 🙂
Catering means different things to different people, and at Pok-e-Jo’s, catering means… a lot of different things. It can mean picking up food at one of our stores. It can mean we deliver and set up a buffet for you. Our staff could be on site to give you the “full service” experience. We can even class it up for a wedding, banquet, or upscale event.
While we do offer different menus for catering, what we’re most known for are our BBQ packages, and if you remember one word when you think of our catering, we want it to be this: Easy. With our BBQ packages, picking out your menu is nice and easy. Pick two or three meats. That’s right, any two or three meats on our menu. Pick three sides. We don’t limit you to just the classics potato salad, coleslaw, and beans (admittedly, with all these options it can be tough to narrow it down to just three sides). Then we include some of our home-brewed iced tea to wash it all down, cookies for dessert (ask about our peach cobbler, too), and all the stuff that tastes good with BBQ. That would be pickles, onions, jalapenos, and bread to those that may be BBQ newbies. With all of these delicious foods and tasty beverages you might think “what am i gonna put all in this in or serve it on?” Don’t fret partner, we have you covered there too. Every Pok-e-Jo’s catering package comes with plenty of plates, cups, eating ware, and serving ware to serve your entire group. You provide the people, and we’ll do the rest!
We also make it easy to order when you call our catering hotline. You’re not going to get someone who is doing three things at once; we have dedicated catering staff ready to answer your call, answer your questions, and help you pick out the food that’s best for your group. Is the event a potluck you’re providing meat for? Are you feeding “ballerinas or linebackers”? Are you just looking for sides? We know there are a lot of variables that go into feeding a group, and we can help you work through all of them.
Our last point: just look at these ribs though:
We rest our case.

What are Y’all Smokin’? Oh, It’s Fajitas!
Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse, a name that has become synonymous with tender brisket, fall-off-the-bone pork ribs, homemade potato salad and other great bbq traditions, is dedicated to making delicious meals born from Texas traditions. Many think of us solely as a “bbq joint”, what many don’t realize is that the same pits that smoke that tender brisket and those pork ribs also smoke fantastic fajitas! That’s right, you can order smoked beef and chicken fajitas served with borracho beans, pico de gallo, chips and queso and much more to cater your office meeting, game day tailgate or pool party (margarita machine not included).
Pok-e-Jo’s offers two fajita packages, both made to order with homemade meats, sides, salsas and come with plates, serving and eating ware as well as iced tea, lemons and cups. The first package, our Basic Fajita Package, comes with both smoked skirt steak and chicken fajita meat served with smoked onions and bell peppers. This package includes borracho pinto beans, spanish rice, pico de gallo, shredded cheddar cheese, picante salsa and tortilla chips all handmade and prepared in house for each order, and also includes sour cream and flour tortillas. The second package, The Deluxe Fajita Package, has everything from the previous package and more! In addition to everything in the basic package, the Deluxe Fajita Package comes with homemade chile con queso made with our house pico de gallo and melted cheese, also included is our guacamole made fresh to order for every package making the Deluxe Package a complete fajita experience. Both packages come with plates, serving ware and tea and are available for pickup or delivery and set up. Due to the fact that we must prepare each package to order, please be aware that we will typically need 12-24 hours notice for any fajita order.
