Love the BBQ here and the unpretentious surroundings. We often do takeaway for dinner or eat in place but either way the BBQ is outstanding.

What is better than good barbecue?! And they do a great job with the pork and beef brisket. And baked beans! But I dislike their cole slaw and REALLY wish they could get theirs from Frisches.

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!
