Welcome to Hottie Hawg's Smokin' BBQ
Atlanta's Best Barbecue Restaurant and Catering Company

Backstage Catering


Delicious Backstage Catering is made of veteran tour chefs who have spent years out on the road and in local backstage kitchens.  After our time on the road we took a break and redirected our focus to the art of smoked meats, wining multiple awards, and becoming one of Atlanta’s best BBQ destinations.  Now that we have an established restaurant and BBQ catering business we are getting back to our roots, and returning to providing amazing meals backstage.


To cater the highest quality gourmet and home style food to artists and their crew with the utmost professionalism and service.  We know what it’s like to be on the road, we’ve been there! Our goal is to make every artist feel relaxed and at home, giving them the energy and nutrition they need to perform at the highest of levels.  We provide meals and snacks that will fill them up without weighing them down, thus giving them the energy they need to get through a long hard day.


Our food is prepared with the spirit and passion of a professional musician creating a hit song.  Our Chefs blend bold flavors, textures, and fresh ingredients creating a symphony of tastes that awaken the senses leaving a lasting impression.  No matter what the dietary need or restriction we create original recipes bursting with flavor to satisfy every guest that comes through our dining room.  No matter what the budget, we will create a menu that will keep people talking.  Healthy and nutritious never tasted this good.


Our attention to detail makes every aspect of our service look and feel the absolute best for our guests.  We provide all day beverage service which includes soft drinks, bottled water, cucumber and lemon spa water, house made sweet and un-sweet teas, and daily aqua frescas like watermelon, melon, pineapple, and hibiscus.  We also make sure that all the artists’ needs are met as far as dressing rooms, bus stock, stage coolers, after show food, and VIP green rooms.  The use of our linens and décor create a warm and inviting atmosphere allowing the guest to take time and relax so they can enjoy their meal.


We have been fortunate enough to spend time on the road working for established tour catering companies, cooking and serving some really great bands and artists.
