Big Pig came out to our wedding a month ago and everyone is STILL talking about how good the pig was. I still have dreams of eating that delicious little fella and all the amazing sides. Even the vegetarians were happy with everything!!!!
They were right on time, very professional and very easy to work with.
I’m trying to figure out a good reason to have a party just to have Big Pig come cater it.
What can I say— Big Pig is AWESOME! They catered a backyard BBQ for us, and the food was amazing (even as leftovers). Not to mention, they were so professional, friendly, gracious, and hard-working. During the planning stage, I admit, I was very skeptical when my fiance suggested a pig roast. This was, after all, our wedding celebration (in lieu of a more traditional wedding reception). Well, it couldn’t have been better. All of the food was delicious, and the pig roast really made it memorable, festive, and special. I am so glad we did it. Our guests LOVED it and raved about the food! Do not be afraid. Big Pig provides top notch service and amazing food.
Awesome, memorable, yummy & a pleasure to deal with. Big Pig was the caterer for the Boston wedding reception held in our backyard for about ~40 people. The event was wonderful and like many other reviewers have said — many of our guests were equally impressed by the presentation of the pig as well as the quality of the food. Big Pig was easy to work with and we did all the planning and even the deposit payment electronically. Had one party guest with a soy allergy and Big Pig checked their entire ingredient and supplier chain to confirm that none of the foods (or sauces) had soy in them - Their roaster and grill could not fit through the gate going to our backyard! No worries - they just setup in the driveway and put on a show for neighbors and the guests. They worked a hot sunny driveway instead of the shady area we had set aside in the backyard without complaint. - The other food was just as tasty as the pork. People loved the salad, burgers, turkey tips and chicken as well. We sent everyone home who wanted with lots of food and stuffed our fridge/freezer with the rest. Basically everything was top notch from start to finish. Highly recommended.
Awesome! Chris and Jon were amazing. Planning a menu was easy and they even offered choices not listed on the menu. On the night I our event it rained. Chris and Jon helped set up tents, move tables and chairs around and relocated their serving tables with no issues. They were pros!! All night our friends raved about how excellent the food was. Everything was hassle free. I would definitely recommend Big Pig!!!
Dear Chris and Jon,
I wanted to say thank you for catering my husband’s 50th birthday party on July 14, 2012. I cannot express enough how grateful I am that our party was such a success because of the services we received from Big Pig Barbecue. Every detail was taken care of for me and I did not have to worry about anything accept having a wonderful day with my guests.
Your grillmasters were amazing, courteous, polite, and extremely professional. On such a dreadfully hot day, those men grilled and worked so hard to ensure our day went off without incident. You have remarkable employees representing your business!
It is Thursday and people are still talking about how great the food was. Thank you so very much for making our day so lovely. My husband loved his birthday. The next party I host, I am going to try the pig roast. Please extend my thanks to the two grillmasters who worked so hard on such a hot and humid day.
Thank you very much for a fabulous meal yesterday!!!! Everything was cooked and served to perfection. It is usually a tough crowd to please but
not this time. My phone started ringing at 7 this morning with compliments about the food.
Thank you again!
Dave and Phyllis
The food you guys cooked for us was amazing! We heard great reviews on the variety and quality of your food, so we will definitely go with you if we have another pig roast in the future (maybe in the fall sometime). We hope you didn’t have any logistical issues with the base and I’m hoping next time we will be able to eat outside in some sunshine! Thank you for everything.

Chris and Jon,
I am so sorry that I have not been in touch sooner, but wanted to say a huge THANK YOU!!!! Armani said that the event that you all put on for us up at Gillette on May 26th was phenomenal! I hear there was a huge crowd, and they drank a lot of beerJ My only regret is that we weren’t able to do it again on Monday.
Thank you for your organization, your professionalism, going way beyond the call of duty and making this event very easy for us as out-of-towners. You all were amazing! I look forward to our next trip to Boston so that we may do this again.
Chris and Jon -
I just wanted to get back to you to express our thanks, again, to both of you for making our daughter’s college graduation party such a success.
When we began the whole party planning process, we were probably looking at 15 different caterers. After researching these companies, I spoke with about 6 - from which I would make my final choice. Some came highly recommended by friends, which I typically place high on my list as personal referrals I feel mean a lot. I only found out about your company on line, which in today’s world I feel you can find anything on the web. All of the reviews about your company were excellent. The prices of the top 6 I was choosing from were quite varied. As one would expect, the companies in our local area were lower on the price scale as there is no travel whatsoever involved. After careful consideration, the Big Pig was chosen … honestly, I am so glad we went with you.
I understand there was a mix-up on the menu. The most important point was how Jon handled the situation. Jon, you took control of the issue and made everything work. As I mentioned to you the only important menu item to Jessica was turkey tips, you fully understood this and ensured her satisfaction. Your calm, professional demeanor is of the highest quality.
And Chris, it also meant a lot to us that you followed up on Sunday explaining your concern with the issue, and ensuring that we were completely satisfied with the outcome, although Jon had already explained this to you. In today’s world, there are not a lot of companies out there who put the ‘personal attention’ foremost in their service . . . you should both be very proud of your company!
I cannot state enough how delighted we were with everything — from my dealings with you on the phone and through e-mails, with the preparation and set-up, the serving of the meal, and the clean-up. All of the food was so delicious, we heard that from so many of our guests.
So, on a final note, thank you again. If we need a caterer again in the future, you can be sure Big Pig will be our choice!

We wanted to thank you and Jon for doing such an awesome job at our party on Sunday. As you could see we had a lot of family and friends together for the wedding. With that size crowd it is difficult to please everyone but we have to say that every single person enjoyed the food. In fact, everyone was raving about it.
Thanks again for everything. We will definitely keep you in mind for the future. Ruth says that next time we’ll have to do a whole pig!
-Dan and Ruth, Salem NH
We used Big Pig BBQ for our cooperate event on 7/25 and I couldn’t be happier. We tried looking in the past for someone to do a pig roast for us but could never find someone until I came across Big Pig. I found them to be extremely helpful in making our event the best it could be. They made the event fun, their staff was upbeat and seemed to actually enjoy being there, mind you, they were at the event since 5am and didn’t leave until 6pm. I remember one instance where after they disassembled their grill and Jon came up to me and asked me if I wanted him to put it back to together and throw some more food on, I was astonished that he even mentioned that option to me, in the past we had caters just pack up and leave and not say a word to me. They truly went above and beyond my expectation. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. Those guys at Big Pig really know how to make any event that much better. Thanks Guys I’ll be seeing you again
-Andy D, Newton MA
The job your guys did was beyond belief. They not only prepared excellent food, but they were very friendly too! I would recommend your company to anyone. Hope to see you on Labor Day.
-Joe, Wilmington MA
Chris and his staff were awesome. Had a suprise Birthday Party (40th) for my wife in neighbors backyard, 80+ people. From my first conversation till the party was done, Chris was courteuos, professional and made it totally stress-free when it came to feeding our guests. The food was better than any BBQ food I’ve ever eaten, our guests are actually calling me and raving how good it was and if they could get his number. I most definitely plan on using Chris again for future get-togethers and highly recommend people to use Big Pig BBQ for their BBQ needs. The pig, the steak tips,the chicken , the corn and all the fixins were absolutely phenomal and you will not go wrong calling him. Chris and staff, Thank You very much for making it an unforgettable party.
Paul, Saugus MA
Fantastic food! I actually had it prepared and delivered hot. Chris took care of the entire set-up, food was hot and well presented. The food was a big hit with all my guests. The ribs and mac & cheese were incredible. Can’t wait to have them cater for us again!
-Liz L, Lynnfield MA

We used these guys for my daughters graduation party and let me say they were unbelievable. Hands down the best! We decided at the last minute to do something special for the party so a pig roast came to mind. I only had two weeks to get this thing off the ground. I was recommended to call BIG PIG took the chance and called. I talked to Chris the owner and explaned my situation. He went out of his way to accommodate us. His staff were friendly,helpful just great! They took care of everything for us and WOW the Pig,burgers and BBQ chicken out of this world. I would reccomend these guys with out a doubt. ssooooooo much fun!!! Pricing was within our budget and we got a lot of Bang for our buck.
-Tanya M, Lynnfield MA
I just wanted to let you know what a great job Sean & Zack did at our July 3rd party. The food was fabulous, everyone loved it.
Sean & Zack were on top of things all day, we did not want for anything!
They have the best personalities and made everyone feel comfortable.
You have a wonderful staff & I would highly recommend Big Pig for any family/corp. event.
I am positive we will be using your services again!
Thanks for everything!
Noreen M, Charlestown MA
I just wanted to thank you for the order on Sunday. The food was fantastic and my guests raved about it. So glad I ordered extra ribs, because with them being that good, people definitely came back for seconds.
I would love to have you cater one of our office lunches. We are at the Hancock Tower in Boston and we typically bring in a lunch for everyone on Mondays. Would you be able to do the same type of food delivery to our office for ~70 people for lunch? Let me know if this is something you would be able to do. If so, I will forward your contact information to our facilities staff and they will be in contact to schedule a date.
I look forward to our next BBQ!
Elizabeth, Peabody MA
I found Big Pig BBQ as I was driving. I saw the van go by and took the number. So glad I called them, they were awesome! I used them for my daughters HS Graduation party. The food was fantastic. We had Option #2 with some extras including the chocolate fountain for dessert. Chris also hooked me up with a canopy, tables, chairs, and DJ. For the first time ever I was able to host and not have to worry about anything. Chris and his crew took care of everything..I would highly recommend them and will use them again and again!!
-Tim C. Lynnfield MA
Thank you again so much for catering our event and putting up with my constant emails and phone calls! Everyone has been talking about how great the food and service was and my supervisor Liz has already been passing out your business cards to everyone she knows. I’m sure we’ll be working together again in the future. I hope you had a great July 4th weekend!
Lauren T, Wakefield MA
Thanks for a great afternoon. Everyone (and I mean everyone) had a great time. They complemented the idea, the food and you and Matt as well.
If only it could have been 80 and sunny.
-Bob M, Revere MA
Thanks so much, Chris…everything was terrific…The ladies did an amazing job..
-Gale L, Danvers MA
Unreal! My brother and I were a little skeptical about hiring a pig roasting company to cater our parents’ anniversary party (about 100 people) relying on them for all the food and dessert, but they assured us before hand that they would take care of everything. They were right….from the delicious steak tips to the pasta salad and roasted chicken…everything was well prepared. We ordered a medium sized pig, which was the center piece of the party…from which Chris and his crew made up some of the best pulled pork sandwiches ive ever had. I plan on using them again for some of my smaller parties. I actually just booked them for a Halloween party coming up next month!
Tony, Waltham MA
We had Big Pig Barbecue cater a large party at our home last week (9/12). The guys did a great job-they are reliable, friendly and hard-working. It is not often that you can have over 60 people at your home and take the time to relax and enjoy yourself but Chris had everything under control and our guests loved the food! We would highly recommend them.
-Di L, Dedham MA
This review is long past due, but I just wanted to tell the guys at Big Pig what a fantastic job they did for my cooperate event. These people were real troopers showing up before 8 AM in torrential down pour (all day) to labor over one of the best tasting pigs my guests ever had. Seriously! The guys were welcoming, accommodating and very professional. They worked within my budget and were very responsive to my needs. Not only did they do a great job setting up and breaking down their own things, but they also lent a hand with a few of the other tasks I had to complete. If ever I do this again I know that I would most definitely give them a call.
Tara C, Beverly MA
The BIG PIG was great!!!! We had a great time. In fact even when our BBQ was hit with two huge thunderstorm and severe weather they kept cooking and grilling!!! Even in the not so ideal conditions they kept asking what they could do to help us. The food was AMAZING and the service was wonderful. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and was able to relax and enjoy our company :)
Michelle C, Hopkington MA
I used Big Pig for an 8th grade class BBQ today and I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. Jon and Chris were wonderful, they had everything ready to go when the kids came outside and the food was delicious and plentiful. They even signed some kids’ yearbooks. Making arrangements was very easy and Jon took care of every detail from the burgers and dogs to the ketchup and napkins. For a BBQ for 60 people, my organization found the price quite reasonable. I would definitely use them for future events.
-Kendra, Winthrop MA
Chris and Crew-
I just wanted to thank you for the awesome job you did for my daughter’s grad party today. The food, the service, from start to finish- absolutely fabulous. Our guests raved about your steak tips, and even though we have some tough critics in the family, you managed to wow them. I wish you luck and we really look forward to holding a pig roast in the future, it is a throw back to some good old (Italian) memories for us! (of course, we will have the mandatory old women in black for the roast, and maybe have one of the old men break out the accordian!)
Thanks Again to yur crew as well!
Jane B, Wakefield MA
We just had Big Pig cater our daughter’s graduation party. It was fabulous!! I had been in contact with Chris prior to the party via email and phone and he was helpful and worked with us on some of the extra items we were looking for. We had some real “foodies” come to the party- and the food impressed and wowed them so much, they asked for business cards for their future events! The staff from Big Pig was so accomodating, and helpful, I was able to really just relax and have a great time!! That was a first for me!! We look forward to our next event catered by them, which will be a pig roast, done the old fashioned way, and soooo delish!!!!
Erica, Winchester MA
I just wanted to send a quick thank you to you and your crew for yesterday. The weather conditions were tough but you guys withstood the rain storms and crazy lighting/thunder and were willing to do anything for us. Thank you again for everything. The food was GREAT! I will be more than happy to be a referral for your company and recommend the BIG Pig to anyone.
Nicole and Family, Stoneham MA
I went to a graduation party/barbecue this past Saturday, which was catered by “BIG PIG Barbecue,” a family owned catering business. They were so fantastic that I feel compelled to recommend them to anyone and everyone! The food was top rate, cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious! I was thoroughly impressed by the whole experience and cannot say enough wonderful things about them! In addition, my friend who hosted the party for her daughter’s graduation said that they were extremely reasonable.
