We stopped for lunch recently and happily noted that the restaurant was very busy even though it was way after the lunch hour. We got brisket, pulled pork and several sides. The brisket was as good as ever, but my pork - retrieved from under...More

The proteins are pretty good. A little overdone for my taste but very good. The sides are outstanding especially the collards green, beans and seasonal gumbo

Had lunch and enjoyed everything we had. Good ribs & pulled pork sandwich. Cornbread was really fine. Different sauces from which you can choose. Won't go wrong here if you're looking for good BBQ.

No reservations, but if you know if you have a big group - we'd love to talk to you ahead of time to see what we could do. We do have several locations with party rooms and/or patios that you can reserve :)

The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food. Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere. So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for!
