About Us

Steve Nolan began Cooking BBQ in the late 80’s with friends in the AQHA and Country music industry. Steve started cooking professionally and competitively in the early 90's and catered VIP parties for KZLA, KIK-FM and KFRG radio. He opened his first restaurant in 1998 in Corona, Ca. He opened Backwoods BBQ & Steak House in 2008 also in Corona. With a great team of family, friends and local kids, Steve grew Backwoods into the largest on-site BBQ catering company in Southern California. The original restaurant operated for over 15 years and was a local favorite drawing people from all over 100 miles. Backwoods BBQ was known for great authentic mesquite fired BBQ, live music, sawdust floors and all the peanuts you could eat.

Backwoods BBQ continues today as an authentic Texas style BBQ catering company that service clients in every Southern California County. Steve treats every event as if it were his own and every client as if they are family. “We have a passion for BBQ and enjoy the sharing it every day.”
