Washington DC Carryout & Catering

Rosebud’s BBQ provides carry out and catering in the Washington DC area. Located in Capitol Heights, Maryland, and specializes in hickory smoked meats from whole pigs to the best ribs, chicken, turkey, and beef in the area.


Rosebud’s BBQ is the product of much hard work by the diligent team of Wayne and Rose Marable. This hardworking husband-wife duo, was determined to create a barbeque catering with a bit of a different flair from the typical.

The emphasis on customer service, a great tasting product, and a sharp eye on the cleanliness of their establishment, were all important elements in the original design of Rosebud’s BBQ. The right smoker oven and the right mix of hickory wood and TLC have also made Rosebud’s BBQ what it is today.

Washington DC Carryout & Catering

While in the process of renovating the building, Wayne and Rose tested their meats and side items on friends, family and Wayne’s coworkers by providing brown bag lunches to the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Dept., attorneys, judges and staffs. Rosebud’s BBQ officially opened its doors on June 22, 2002, with a customer base in place.

Soon after the opening, Rose retired from twenty one years as an international flight attendant and Wayne is still policing and plans to retire in about nine years. The hickory wood flavor permeates their ribs, chicken, turkey, beef, and pork to the bone. They feature the creamiest macaroni and cheese in the area, and Rose’s homemade potato salad is a real hit with her customers.
