Mobile ~ Local ~ Family Owned!

Daddy Pete’s BBQ, LLC, is a family owned business operated by Cory & Tarra Davis. We focus on providing delicious, Southern, slow-smoked meats served with a homemade, finger-lickin’ BBQ sauce.  We believe in giving every customer the “The Daddy Pete’s Experience” that not only includes delicious food, but also includes outstanding service & hospitality.

Daddy Pete’s BBQ offers a limited selection of traditional southern favorites with a unique slow-smoked flavor. The star of the party is the slow-smoked meats, but we also provide some darned tasty hand-crafted side dishes and desserts.  A significant majority of Daddy Pete’s menu consists of locally sourced ingredients which are prepared fresh, daily.


It all started with…

…a desire to have delicious, smoked meats, cooked low & slow, southern-style.

That desire to cook for the family sparked an even bigger interest when Pitmaster, Cory Davis won a local barbecue competition.  From there, he knew he had the beginnings of a recipe that his dad, Pete, would be proud of.  Cory also found that his winning cooking process, delectable rub, and sweet BBQ sauce would be a combination people would come to love.

Finally, all that was needed was some hard work and perseverance on behalf of “Mrs. Pete”, Tarra Davis, to bring the business to life with a business & marketing plan, as well as a few delectable side dishes to bring Daddy Pete’s to life.

Now, Daddy Pete’s BBQ, LLC is a family-owned business that is proud to bring it’s fresh, local, southern-smoked meats to the Greater Grand Rapids area!

Ways to Enjoy Daddy Pete's!


The grandaddy that started it all.  In 2013 we purchased a 20′ x 8′ concession trailer with a custom made on-board commercial kitchen and rotisserie smoker.  We have served thousands of hungry food truck & BBQ fans over the years with this trusty unit.


In August of 2016, we were able to open a small to-go location where we serve our same slow-smoked goodness, but at one stationary location!


Sometimes smaller packages are better…and that’s what the Daddy Pete’s Food Truck is.  This food truck hit the road in 2017, serving smaller crowds with Daddy Pete’s same slow-smoked treats. UPDATE: Unfortunately, our long-awaited truck caught fire, so it is currently not available for use…but we WILL replace it soon!


Sometimes, you just want more.  Well, look no further than Daddy Pete’s Catering!  We offer all of our standard menu items, plus more on our catering menu.  Have a group coming for dinner?  Feeding your business clients for lunch?  Contact us!
