The Fat G’s food truck is fully operational, meaning you won’t have to stress about finding a kitchen for us to set up shop. Our mobile unit can assemble wherever you need us to. From there, we take care of preparation, execution, and cleanup, so that you can spend less time worrying about food, and more time enjoying your special event.
Fat G’s also provides catering for all types of events from parties to celebrations, and everything in between. We even offer options for Thanksgiving catering Gainesville FL locals can call on who prefer a less traditional holiday meal.

What Sets Fat G’s Catering Apart from Other BBQ Restaurants?
The south has no shortage of barbecue restaurants, making it nearly impossible to know just where to start when it comes to finding the best. That’s why we at Fat G’s Catering have provided our own list of reasons that speak to our superiority. Fat G’s Catering is a cut above the competition, and here’s why:
All-Natural Curing and Smoking: At Fat G’s Catering we believe that barbecue is at its best when simplified. Rather than try and experiment too heavily with method and meat, we focus on getting the purest smoke possible and seasoning to your preferences. We cook all our cured meats in the traditional wood-fired way. This method allows for your barbecue to soak in the natural aroma and tastes of the smoker, rendering a hearty and full-bodied BBQ meal. Our Gainesville food truck utilizes our on-site cooker to bring freshness right to your location.
Creating the perfect barbecue also involves knowing what not to use in the curing and cooking process.
Real- Thoughtfully Sourced- Ingredients: When it comes to creating a knockout barbecue dish, how you choose to cook the meat is only one-half of a very important equation. The other half revolves around the type of meats and ingredients that you use in your recipe. Low brow and low-quality ingredients can only take your tastebuds so far, no matter how well they’re cooked. At Fat G’s Catering we focus on sourcing the highest quality ingredients possible. Whether you’re meeting us out at an event or hiring us for your very own Gainesville catering event, we have the quality ingredients and perfected cooking methods needed to provide an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. We work with local farms to bring you ethically sourced, delicious-tasting, meats. By cutting out fillers, we deliver the best plate of BBQ Gainesville has to offer.
Customized Taste: At Fat G’s Catering, we subscribe to a certain list of guidelines when crafting our food. One of those guidelines is that everyone should have the opportunity to eat and experience their barbecue just the way they like it. We’ll work with you to create the BBQ plate or dish of your dreams, thanks to our non-static menu offerings and diverse knowledge of barbecue. When it comes to catering events Gainesville FL locals know we have the golden touch, paired with the ability to create a dish that appeals to everyone. We offer a plethora of different options, allowing for you and yours to get creative when crafting your ideal dish. Your wish is our command.
A Meat for Everyone: There’s something for everyone to enjoy at Fat G’s Catering, thanks to our diverse variations of dinners, sandwiches, sides, and entrees. You can build your own barbecue plate based on your specific preferences and favorite cut(s) of meat. We proudly offer beef brisket, pulled pork, rib dinners, smoked chicken, turkey legs, and even meatless/vegan options for our catering clients! Now everyone in your crew, regardless of dietary restrictions, can enjoy our catering Gainesville FL service.
More than Meats: Come for the meats, stay for the sides and treats. Part of what helps keep our menu diverse is the inclusion of other classic barbecue foods. At Fat G’s Catering we’re offering up all the classics you grew up eating at the backyard cookout but revamping them to reach new food frontiers and explore flavor profiles. In the mood for a sweet treat? We have desserts on deck to satiate your sweet tooth. Our ever-evolving menu utilizes seasonal ingredients, remixes classics, and gets creative to keep you constantly coming back for more.

I came across Mrs hannah when she appeared as a guest on a Forex Podcast in USA. I was listening to and was very impressed with her straight forward approach and the principles of her
trading strategy. My heart then told me to invest $3000 with her company as a trial. I was able to withdraw a profit of $32,000 after 7 days. Mrs hannah jeff FX. make this
possible, do well and reach out to her for a secure investment too.
