What our customers are saying

"The Meat Falls off the bone"
I have been to many bbq places in WA. The best ribs I have had are at Warthogs Barbeque pit in Fife. The ribs are tender and the meat falls off the bone. You don't even need to pick the ribs up cause you can just pick the meat off with a fork. Other than all the stuffed dead animal trophies all over the walls and ceiling(I'm not into hunting) its a pretty cool place, very rustic. Oh yeah.--> Read More


"One Hell of a BBQ Joint!"
This place is one hell of a BBQ joint! I don't get south of Seattle often but Warthog is a worthy stop.

The Moo, Cluck, Oink is the bomb tip off! Only $9.95 for half a chicken, pork ribs, beef brisket, baked beans, potato salad and corn bread! Insane! It is so good! The smoke is in the meats, not bad meat hidden with sauce!

The porterhouse steak is as good or better then anything in Seattle for two or three times the price!!

If you are on a road trip or just close by this place is a must!! -->Read More


"Their meat is Outstanding"
I have used Warthog to cater more than 15 events in the last 4 years. Their meat is outstanding. My favorites are the beef brisket, hand made, spicy sausage and pulled pork. I can not speak to their BBQ sauce as I eat the meat without it. To me, the quality of meat is most important and Warthog's is divine. The meat is moist, tender and bathed in smoky goodness. Their "nasty rice" is outstanding and heats up well for leftovers. Their corn bread is very good as is the pecan pie. They have full-service catering available, options include  table and chair rentals, special menu requests and buffet set-up and staffing. No one ever left one of my Warthog catered events hungry or unhappy...covered in BBQ sauce maybe, but always satisfied. -->Read More


"It was 1000x better than 3 pigs"
When we got there the place was EMPTY at 1pm on a weekday.  I thought great but within 10 minutes at least 20 people had come in and ordered.  After reading all the reviews, I decided to go with the pulled pork sandwich (ok - not a huge pork fan and love my swimming in BBQ sauce, which I had to go find and put on myself). I really liked the BBQ sauce.  The sweet, salty fries were actually quit addicting.  The beans were good but odd - HUGE pieces of ham hock and onions.  Corn bread excellent.

The restaurant was cute - they do their log cabin theme well inside and out.  It was $14 for me and the little one.  I definitely want to go back and try the brisket (it's probably what I should have ordered to begin with) and some different sides.  It was 1000x better than 3 pigs (and way more reasonably priced for the quality and the quantity). -->Read More


"What a pleasure it has been..."
Dear Gary:
   I would just like to say what a pleasure it has been to do business with you and your staff. I have received nothing but rave reviews about the food that was served here at the Miller Brewing Company's Tumwater Brewery. Our luncheon commemorated 500,000 working hours without a lost time accident here at the Brewery.  It is a very special celebration and we wanted to do something special for our employees. Warthog Barbeque far exceeded all of our expectations not only in service but also in quality food and presentation. Thank you for accommodating all of our needs, including serving 375 people over three shifts. Everyone was truly impressed.
   I will continue to highly recommend Warthog Barbeque to anyone who is looking for a caterer, or just a really good meal. On behalf of everyone here at the brewery, thank you for an excellent luncheon. We wish you nothing but continued success in the future.

"I especially appreciated the professionalism..."
Dear Gary;
   I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the wonderful catering job you did for us at this year's Employee Appreciation Day.
   Our employees were greatly impressed not only with the great food, but also with the terrific presentation. I especially appreciated the professionalism exhibited by your staff and have enjoyed working with you over the past few months.
   Thank you for accommodating our extra guests. I know we estimated for 750 people, but you came through and were able to serve another 125 people. That was great planning on your part.    Thank you again and we look forward to having you cater other events in the future.

"...would not hesitate to contact the Warthog Barbeque Pit again..."
To Whom It May Concern:
   In June of this year the Warthog Barbeque Pit catered a retirement party for our company that was attended by 225 people. I found Gary and his staff to be thorough, courteous and very pleasant to work with. They showed up on time, set up their equipment quickly and followed through with everything that we had decided upon. The food was excellent, pricing was competitive and portions were more than enough.
   We would not hesitate to contact the Warthog Barbeque Pit again should the opportunity arise.
   Very truly yours,
   Northwest Metal Products Company

"It is my pleasure to recommend Warthog BBQ Pit..."
Dear Mr. Kurashima:
   On behalf of the owners of the Southgate Office Plaza 1, Washington Park and the ABAM Building, I would like to thank you for an outstanding job by you and your crew. Our Tenant Appreciation Parties were a huge success this year and I have had a lot of good feed back. Your attention to detail and ability to provide above average service to our tenants to show our appreciation for them was outstanding. Not to mention the fact that we did not have to do anything but show up because you and your crew handled everything.
   It is my pleasure to recommend Warthog BBQ Pit to those of you who are looking to have a party catered. Gary provided us with an excellent service and everything we need. He was easy to work with and was on top of all our needs. Please feel free to contact me at 425-793-4065 if you have any questions.

"The lines went so smooth and fast. Thank you."
Dear Gary,
   I wanted to THANK YOU for the excellent BBQ you put on for us on the 'Capitol Grounds' in Olympia, Washington. What a professional team you have. The food was delicious! The presentation of all the food you prepared for us was very nice...I was worried taking on this job to begin with. But after talking with you and listening to how you run your BBQ, I felt better. Talking with other people you had dealt with made me feel like we picked the right caterer...you served our approximately 300 people, all of them with smiles on their faces...The lines went so smooth and fast. Thank you....By the end of our 'Model 'A' Regional Meet' I think everyone that had gone to the BBQ had talked to one or all of us on the Steering Committee about how great the BBQ was.
   Thank you,
