Max City BBQ is a family owned, smoked chicken, pulled pork, rib, brisket and all the fixings, catering business located in Eagle Rock, CA. Thanks to our many loyal customers we have grown and developed into a full service catering company for everything from weddings and corporate lunches to birthdays and backyard parties. Our goal is to open Max City BBQ's first dedicated brick and mortar space with a large catering kitchen and fast casual dining. 

We provide amazing yet affordable food. We believe in Fresh, Locally Grown Products that respect a forward-looking attitude toward our health and to our environment. Max City BBQ is based upon a simple menu with a simple philosophy:               

BARBECUE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE BAD FOR YOU. IT JUST HAS TO BE DELICIOUS.

Risks and challenges

The restaurant business is HARD. We understand that and we're not afraid of the work, dedication, heart and soul that this will take. We face numerous obstacles from finishing construction and complying with city codes to making the space feel like home. Then, once our doors are finally open, we need to meet and surpass the needs and expectations of our dine-in customers, WHILE continuing our top-notch catering service. The only reason we think we have any business being in the restaurant business is because of the continuous stream of positive feedback and countless "word of mouth" customer referrals from YOU. We believe we've gotten to this place because we CARE about our food - what we make & how we make it. And we CARE about our customer's experience when they are with us. As caterers, we have been privileged to share some of the most glorious moments of our customer's lives - weddings, retirement parties, 90th birthdays... and now it is our turn - to open our lives, our food - to you. To create a restaurant that feels like home. Where you can get a plate of ribs, a bowl of mac & cheese, a beer and a community that values the bonds we create through meals shared together.

We will do our utmost to live up to your expectations. Our success will come from scaling up our existing business and opening the doors of 4729 Eagle Rock Blvd. to Occidental College students (right up the road!), Eagle Rock & East Side "regulars" and our dedicated customers from all over the LA Area. We have meet the needs of over 5000 happy customers to date. And we're only getting started.

We promise to keep you informed of construction delays or miracles, soft opening parties, tastings, beer & wine license updates and anything else that comes up.

THANK YOU for sharing the journey with us.
