Delicious BBQ Catering for Your Big Event

If you can host it, we can cater it. Graduation parties, weddings, birthday celebrations, tailgates, private parties, race parties, whatever the event, Johnson’s BBQ Shack would be honored to be your caterer.

Whether you’re in Indianapolis, Greenwood, or anywhere else in Central Indiana, we offer everything from our menu and will work with you on special requests.  We can customize any menu, but check out our pricing guide with the most common options to get you started.

Prices are subject to change, and we would like the opportunity to speak with you individually about your needs. We field questions every day about weddings and thought this might help save everyone some time.

Prices may vary based on event venue and location.  Please feel free to call 317-458-4660.
