Stopped at this City Barbeque location while travelling between Florida and Cincinnati. There turned out to be a "Fat Tuesday" special - ribs for $1 each. That and the Pick 3 sides made a good meal for the two of us to split at a...More

Very expensive, $22.99 for a slab of ribs then you pay extra for sides. Wanna beer, by the bottle therefore for 2 12 ounce you'd pay more than you would a six pack. Not recommended unless your rich. (Bryan)

Oh no! Thanks for the great review but we are so sorry to hear that the brisket wasn't up to par the second time around. Would you mind emailing me at jordan@citybbq.com? I'd love to make it up to you!

We eat here at least once a week. We have never had a bad experience. No matter what you order, you will be satisfied.

Located close to several medical facilities. I think I've found a new go-to restaurant for when I have a local appointment. It was fate. I love Mark's Feed Store, but the one I remembered had closed. When I asked about it, someone commented that City...More

Atmosphere is OK. Food is very average. I ordered pulled pork sandwich, green beans and side salad. The sandwich was really puny, I mean quite small. Fit nicely in the palm of my hand. Got medium fountain drink. Paid $10.57 Way overpriced for the amount...More

We tried quite a few items. The chicken and barbecue were both very good. Good variety of sauces to try.

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! Our menu boasts premium smoked meats such as Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, All Natural Turkey Breast, Texas Smoked Sausage, St. Louis-Style Ribs, All Natural Chicken. Pair any smoked meat with our delicious City Sides for a true 'que meal! City Sides include baked beans with brisket, mac & cheese, corn pudding, green beans with bacon, fresh-cut fries, mixed greens with pork, potato salad, hand dipped hush puppies, side salad, gumbo and corn bread. Finish it off with one of our made-from-scratch desserts: peach cobbler, triple chocolate cake and banana pudding. We proudly dedicate our lives to the pursuit of barbeque and happiness (yes, in that order)!
