This place is amazing.. the food is divine and the service is excellent. Not to mention our money is supporting a local business. So my husband and I had them cater our wedding and oh my gosh the presentation and food/service was amazing and perfect! They served a ton of great sides along with tri-tip and lemon chicken woth mashed potatoes, salad, ritzy Mac and so much more. This is the wedding food you are looking for! Everyone loved it. They cooked it ON SITE for hours before the guests even arrived. So the venue was infiltrated with the amazing smells of good food. Thank you Berkley!! More...

We booked Berkley for our teacher appreciation lunch last month. I just want to say that even though we had some unforeseen last minute changes Berkley didn't disappoint. The food was delicious everyone loved and asked for his contact information. We ordered the smoked chicken which was not dry at all, it was so juicy and flavorful. We also got the smoked sausage and peppers, potato salad baked beans and garden salad with dinner rolls. So so yummy. I would recommend to anyone wanting some delicious bbq for a party or event. The teachers and staff at our school were extremely satisfied. Our PTA and School staff appreciate your services Berkley. Thanks again. And sorry for taking so long to write this review. More...

This is hands downs THE BEST BBQ in LA! We live in Venice and Berkley came with service for 20 like it was no big deal. He rolled up with all the fixings including ribs, chicken, finger licking corn on the cob, baked beans, rolls, salads galore. We had enough food to send everyone home with a care package! Call Berkley for ALL of your BBQ needs. He's amazing and thorough and will make you look so good as you throw a  stress free event. He even brought swag for my kids! You know your menu will be solid with Berkley's Backyard BBQ!!! More...

This guy is awesome he can e to are City yard and did a bbq for the guys and we were more than pleased the food is unbelievable. This guy should have a tv cooking show.  Plus his homemade bbq sauce is incredible. All the guys were asking for bottles. The guys at work are not easy to please,when it comes to food really picky about what they spend there money on to eat and we are not little guys. Everyone of us are big eaters. He also was kind enough to do a vegetarian dish for some of the guys. We are definitely using him again and you should too. More...

Berkley's catered our Employee luncheon. I WAS IMPRESSED! First, the came by a couple days before to scout out the location. On the day of, they showed up early and set up their smoker along with their EZ Ups. Extremely professional, but family style! The BBQ was great. I loved the potato salad & baked beans...but the BBQ chicken & pork ribs were Finger Lickin Yum! Will definitely call you for our next event! Thank You! More...

Berkeley did a really nice job for our small birthday party of 20. He was right on time and I was utterly surprised that he went above and beyond by bringing in an extra side dish. I wasn't expecting it but he was prepared with all of the serving utensils, utensils, and the salad dishes (potato, green salad and  coleslaw) were packed on ice and everything.  Now to the food, the chicken w/ pineapples and baked beans were a huge hit. My husband and son gobbled up left overs for dinner until it was gone. Next time I'd like to try the ribs but for this small occasion it was just right. More...

My Son recommended  Berkley's Original Backyard BBQ for my daughter's graduation party from USC. The pork ribs, chicken, Cole slaw and potato salad were a big hit. Family and friends couldn't  get enough. The server's  were friendly, efficient, and helpful. I am a BBQ aficionado with wood and appreciated Berkley  sharing, with me, how he prepped and cooked those incredible  ribs.Can a Brotha Get Some BBQ!!" I highly recommend  Berkly's BBQ. More...

The ribs, hot links and chicken were tender and full of flavor. The bbq baked beans and rolls were a perfect compliment. Our servers were professional and super friendly. It was a great experience from beginning to end. We are happy customers and will be calling again. I recommend Berkley and his crew cater your event because he won't disappoint. BTW, Berkley is down to earth and super easy to work with. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up! More...

Off the freakin hook! I hosted a luncheon for one of my clients in El Monte (I am from Lawndale). Berkley and crew showed up early and over delivered on taste and quality! Food was awesome, we got chicken, ribs, and Tri-Tip with all the sides and drinks. All items were top notch. Berkley is an artiste and puts a lot of heart and soul into his food, it shows. The client loved his BBQ and sides, spread (Xmas decorations and music), and his personality.I grew up on J&J, Phillip's, Tony Romas, and Chicago for Ribs.His topped them all. His signature (bottled) sauce wasn't for sale yet but we consumed all that he had.We will have him back for our all-client appreciation dinner in a few months for 250 people. 100% recommended!!!

Berkley catered for one of our company meetings and it was GREAT! They showed up early and everyone was SO friendly. They had chicken, sausage, potato salad, beans, coleslaw and salad. I was obsessed with their salad dressing! Food choices for meetings often end in moans and groans because someone wasn't happy.... Not this time!  Recommended is an understatement. Thanks again!

Berkley provided a high quality, catered lunch for 150 of our Geek Squad Agents today. He showed up extra early to freshly prepare the food on site and it showed in the flavor. We had chicken and sausages with Cole slaw, potato salad and baked beans. All were delicious and the team raved about the food. I would highly recommend his services to my friends and family, you can tell he takes pride in the food he cooks. Thank you for feeding the team today!!! More...

I have used Berkley's multiple times.  The biggest was for 80 guests.  The food was amazing!  The BBQ Chicken and sausage were so good.  He even made some roasted veggies for my vegetarian guests. Everybody loved it.   I love his potato salad and BBQ sauce.  Yummy!     I am in the pharmaceutical field and have worked with many caterers in the past.  I love working with Berkley, he makes it very easy.  Delivery and set up is also very professional.

We hired Berkley to cater a medical school graduation party, which had 60 guests from all walks of life... friends, family, colleagues, mentors, etc. .. and everyone (adults and children alike) loved the food.  We got the smoked chicken, smoked tri-tip, potato salad, corn, and beans (which he was able to modify for guests' dietary needs) and it was all incredible.  If anyone is putting together an event, I can't recommend Berkley's Backyard BBQ highly enough.  Aside from the food, Berkley and his staff were incredibly hospitable, and a pleasure to have around.

This is Orange County's best kept secret!!!! Berkley's BBQ was the best thing that I ever could have found on the internet. His customer service is not only outstanding but it was far beyond my expectations. As far as the food goes...we had no hungry guests! The food was unlike anything I had ever had. The BBQ chicken was perfectly seasoned and the BBQ sauce is definitely a winner. I WILL tell everyone about this caterer. Good Value-Good Food-Excellent customer service! What more could you ask for?

Berkley's Backyard BBQ is a must for all BBQ lovers. I heard about them from some friends & decided to give it a try. One of the OC's hidden gems. The sauce is delicious & the service fast & friendly. More...

Q&A

St. Louis Pork Ribs, Smoked BBQ Chicken and my famous Corn on a Cobb.....insane!!

I take my time to listen to their needs then we discuss what type of menu will suit their budget and needs.

Seeing the clients face after they take their first bite!!!! I love it!

I grew up in my father's BBQ restaurants. He had a total of 4 so it's in my blood...I take no credit in the recipes!

There is no other BBQ like ours! We are hands down the most unique taking BBQ in all of California. I promise your friends will love it.
