Catering Service Area

Based in Central Texas, we generally service events in and around the Austin area; however, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have extra special plans at a more distant location. We have a mobile barbeque pit that enables us to travel just about anywhere!


Full Service Catering

At the Full Service level, our catering team will handle every detail of your event. This includes menu planning, buffet set-up, serving guests, clean up afterwards, and packaging all leftovers for you to collect at the end of your evening. At your venue or ours, our knowledgeable and friendly staff will make your guests feel truly appreciated. Minimum for this service: $1,200 in food sales plus 20% service fee.

Drop-Off Catering

Our Drop-Off Catering option is an ideal way to provide a streamlined meal without compromising quality. We will ensure the food arrives in a timely fashion and is properly laid out for your guests’ enjoyment. All items will arrive hot and ready to serve. Options for serving utensils, plasticware, napkins and other paper goods are also available. Minimum for this service: $600.00 in food sales plus delivery fees (dependent on distance).

Pick-Up Catering

Our Pick-Up Catering offers flexibility, allowing you to set the date and time that best suits your needs. We’ll have your order hot and ready to serve at the time of your choosing. The meats and sides will be prepared in bulk quantities and packaged to travel. Pick-up is simple and we’ll go over your order when you arrive to ensure absolute accuracy. No minimum – 24 hour notice required.


Ordered a buffet for 50 people for a funeral reception, although we could inform Bastrop Southside BBQ of our earlier arrival just an hour before the scheduled time, everything was arranged nicely upon our arrival during the Friday lunch hour rush.  We enjoyed the very delicious food, especially the super tender brisket, the separate room and the friendly service.  I highly recommend the Bastrop Southside BBQ restaurant for any family or business get together.   My special thanks to Michelle, the catering coordinator.  She did a fantastic job!

I have never eaten at the restaurant location itself, but Southside Market Bastrop catered my wedding at my parents’ farm on 13 October 2019 and everything was absolutely perfect! Working with Louise, Lynda, and Tom to get the details set prior to the big day was a simple and pleasant experience. 
Thank you so much for helping make my wedding day so wonderful.
