The Dearmore Story

Dearmore's Bar-B-Cue started as a family run business over 35 years ago in the heart of Ventura County. Starting as a small "friends only" catering endeavor, the business soon took off as Southern California developed a taste for the delicious Santa Maria style Bar-B-Cue. The first in Southern California to bring the "pit" to you, Bobby Dearmore was known for his original Bar-B-Cue pit design, grilled to perfection tri-tip and his above and beyond customer service.

Bobby passed away on June 12, 2008 leaving his passion for Bar-B-Cue to his head chef of over 23 years, Miguel Gomez. Miguel has perfected the Dearmore style Bar-B-Cue process and proudly serves over 10,000 original Bobby Dearmore dinners a year.

Thank you for inquiring about our services. We hope we can make your event a very "special one". Please give us a call if you have any questions. We hope to hear from you soon.
