Daddy Pete’s BBQ is a business with southern charm reminiscent of homestyle cooking. Eating at Daddy Pete's is a unique experience, which is why it is no surprise that Daddy Pete’s BBQ is a businesses with storybook beginnings. After winning a food competition in 2012, Cory and Tarra Davis, owners of Daddy Pete’s BBQ, were flooded with praise and earnest requests asking them to share their  homemade BBQ sauce. This sea of positive responses soon lead Cory and Tarra to start their own business in which everybody could try their BBQ sauce. It began small only selling to family and friends, but word spreads quickly when delicious food is the topic of conversation. Soon the Davis’ were ready to acquire a food truck. Their mission? Providing southern, slow-smoked meats consisting of locally sourced ingredients which are prepared fresh and daily onboard the commercial kitchen and rotisserie smoker.

Daddy Pete’s boast items like their Pulled Smoked Chicken Sandwich, Creamy Cole Slaw, and Bacon Explosion Sandwich, all of which are made fresh and with local ingredients. What can you expect from Daddy Pete’s BBQ at this year’s Street Party? Savory items like their Pork Ribs, Six Cheese Mac and Cheese and their Beef Brisket— all born out of passion for slow-cooked meats. If you are worried about not trying the best item, don’t be. Every item Daddy Pete’s makes is on par with the next. Daddy Pete’s boast a standard of excellence. “we don't make any menu items that we don't like ourselves, Tarra says. “In fact, we have won awards for a majority of the items we'll be bringing with us, so we think, they're all great!”

To kick off your summer with delicious barbecue, join us at this year’s Street Party and try out authentic barbecue cooked low & slow over real wood for hours.
