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 barbecue 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 their establishment’s cleanliness 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.

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 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 opening, Rose retired from twenty-one years as an international flight attendant to run the business. Wayne retired from the Metropolitan Police Department in 2015. Wayne now runs the business with plans to add another level, ‘BBQ on the Potomac” on their party pontoon. The hickory wood flavor permeates the meats to the bone. Their homemade potato salad is a real hit with the customers.
