Fitties BBQ


                                                FITTIES  CATERING



Call us for all your catering needs also, we do all sizes of parties and events of any size. We will even cater for one, if you wish. We are known for not only our reasonable pricing but our ability to meet your needs and make the event truly memorable. We can deliver the food or you can pick it up. If needed, we can even serve at the party or event. From full service catering or just supplying the food we can help make your gathering great.

Our slow smoked meats are not the only thing that can be on your menu. We can supply the beverages and the baked goods, like cakes and cookies. Baked fresh our cookies, cakes, and other assorted goods can't be beat. Made by us and delivered fresh there's no way it gets any better, just like our BBQ. You order from us you can't lose.

So if you are thinking about that shindig and you didn’t include Fitties, you missed the whole point of why people give parties! Yes everyone wants to come see you and have a good time, but I hate to break it to you, they really want Fitties( they just ain't tellin' you that part). It's probably going to be the main reason why they'll show up!

As a matter of fact, we'll bet you that if you are planning a party or event, someone is bound to come by and ask us if we're catering it..... cause they want some Fitties! Now don't go getting upset with em..... they just want to make sure things go right for you. They don't want to be talkin behind your back goin “the music is alright, but they should have gotten the food from Fitties” . Nobody wants to hear that about the party.

So just to avoid all that, give us a call and we'll make sure that if they are gonna talk about your party behind your back, they'll be talkin about coaching you into throwing another one!

And, for all of you Fitties lovers thinking…( I should have thrown that  party) … you should have.. but we understand … you were invited… but if you are a true friend, instead of wondering ‘why do I have to go to a party that is serving up good grub”? we say to you, tell them.. if you are truly a friend and you want it to be the best party you will ever go to …. Tell them, enlighten their souls.. Fitties… it’s all you have to say, the message will get through.

 And again for all of you poor desperate souls saying, “why do I have to go to a party that has Fitties, gotta encourage them not to go down in flames… we say… get some Fitties for yourself… it’ is the only way to make sure.. and at the party remind everyone it’s yours… you do this by saying “ this is not for you”!

If it gets out of hand, we have one suggestion, remind them they were only coming to see you because you had Fitties, like a baby with a bone around their neck just so the dog would play with em! Let em know, be proud of saying “you get nothing!”.


This has been a public service message from Fitties! And no we are not sorry about it! So what if it got out of hand!


More public service message coming soon to a town near you! Be well all!
