Our reputation for quality began in 1967. That's when Nelson Gongwer invented his patented Port-A-Pit cooking unit, systematically dipping meat into a family-secret sauce while being grilled to perfection over an open flame. His innovative technique has truly provided us with an edge over our competition, allowing us to provide that same quality and consistency for our clients throughout central Illinois for more than 25 years.

Since opening in 1995, we've offered the best quality catering to Peoria the entire central Illinois area. We have catered to every kind of event including corporate events, weddings, home parties, birthdays and picnics.
