Not just for special occasions but to make every occasion special!

The Santa Maria Style BBQ has evolved over the years to be one of the most tantalizing menus in California. When driving down the main streets of Santa Maria you can’t help but smell the appetizing aroma emitting from nearly every street corner in town.

‘Q IT UP! Catering is honored to bring this tradition to the Midwest by providing this unique attraction to your indoor and outdoor events. Traditionally, our signature main dishes are prepared on-site at your event beginning with an aromatic hardwood fire. As the fire reaches its peak, fresh salsa vegetables are placed on the grill to initiate the fire-roasted salsa recipe. When the coals are ready, specially seasoned meats are positioned for a 2-3 hour cook time.

Q IT UP! Catering has achieved the exalted reputation as one of the finest and most unique custom caterers in the nation specializing in on-site preparation of their signature salsa and meats using only a hardwood fire for fuel and handcrafted dry rubs for seasoning. Whether it’s a dinner party for 50 or a company picnic for 5000, ‘Q IT UP! Catering invites you to add this unforgettable culinary experience to your event.
