Kids will love the place. I loved their selections and sides but watch out for those chunks of Pork in the Baked... More

Had our normal sort of time there(good). The family and one of our kid's friends were with us (our kids are adults and so was the friend). Just what we expected - good food, a nice time. We were able to sit a while and talk - it's not too noisy there. I am in their rewards program, and they... More

A-OK says it all: It's okay and nothing more. People seem to crave the City BBQ, I really don't know why. It seems to me it's the Hot Chicken Takeover of BBQ in Columbus. The pulled pork always seems dry, no matter what location we visit. The brisket is a little better but not by much.The St. Louie cut ribs... More

I get carry out of ribs, brisket and sides monthly. Baked beans are the best I've found. Interesting choice of sodas.

I also appreciate that the staff remember me every time I visit this location, they are always friendly and helpful. Other City Barbeque locations should take lessons from the 600 S. State St,...

I've been coming to City Barbeque since they first opened down on Cleveland Ave just south of I-270. I was really happy when they moved to this location in the heart of Westerville. This is a place where you order at the counter and wait for your order to be ready. Then you find a table, get your drinks, silverware,... More

City BBQ is a consistent quality place to eat. It has something for everyone but the pork BBQ is outstanding with excellent sides to choose from. You order at the counter and they bring the food and drink to you in a timely fashion. Try the banana pudding. So good.
