Pettys for catering

They catered a school booster banquet for our organization. The food was excellent. The meats tender. We are going to use them again for our next banquet.

I did not go to the restaurant. We had Petty's cater our sports banquet that Knights Court Booster club sponsors for our athlete teams. The food was excellent and the service was very good. The meats were tender and the side dishes were tasty. We have 3 banquets a year and we have finally found someone whose food satisfies our... More

We were hungry for good BBQ and found just the place! Party of four and we all ordered something different. Best brisket ever! And the green beans left you wanting more! Good choice of sides and ample servings. Good, friendly service! Nice selection of sauces to meet your taste. Atmosphere was good too - picnic tables and great wall murals.... More

Wanted some good BBQ while in Killeen on business. The chow at Petty's was awesome! I had the ribs. They were great, and the sides were fabulous, especially the green beans! The sauces were impressive, one of them he mixed up right in front of us based on a conversation we were having! Great service, friendly casual atmosphere! If you... More

Prices were okay, but the food was only so-so. I got there around 5:15 and they were out of brisket and so I ordered the pork and it was really fatty (like chunks of fat on my plate). The sides were tasteless. I would not recommend this as a good BBQ

What happened at Petty's? I have been a loyal customer and sent many friends to Petty's for their delicious food. A few weeks ago my potato salad was different (large chunks/no seasoning), then last night I got brisket that was tough and dry, and the potato salad had huge chunks of potatoes that were not even thoroughly cooked-they were still...

The bbq here is tasty and will satisfy most people who like a good, middle of the road bbq. It's not peppery or spicy, and it's not overly sweet. The location is a bit problematic, though. From most of the parking area you either have to go up stairs or up a steep slope. This may be very difficult for... More

Visting in town and looked for real Texas barbeque. This seemed like a good choice, and we weren't disappointed. Emphasis on smoke and slow cooking, producing a brisket that melts in your mouth. Unassuming decor, but the food is the point. Helpful and entertaining staff. Sauces available and perhaps worth trying - but why cover good meat with sauce? A... More

I wasn't impressed with any of the selections which were few. I wanted burnt ends and they looked at me a little strange. I did get them and they were the best part of the food. Sorry to say we were looking for a great bbq restaurant after eating at a Great one in Missouri. This one didn't make the... More

Great place with great prices! I've been here 4 times and have always got the pulled pork sandwich and potato salad. I've never been disappointed! The resturant is small but the food is amazing! Also the sauce is lip smacking good! I love the Dr Pepper and Rootbeer sauce both are to die for !
