A clean family type BBQ place. Lots of folks but no lines. The ribs were good; moist and tender. The M&C was disappointing and, sadly, we could not eat it. Overall for us...average at best...

We love this Barbeque restaurant. We ordered Pork rib with brash fire sauce. It is little spicy but very good. Tuesday is half price on pork rib.

The food and sides were beyond outstanding. My guess is high calorie but in the end didn't care. You will love the place

Do not visit Lexington without stopping here and getting the beef brisket. Huge servings of brisket cooked right. I've had san Antonio BBQ and would eat city BBQ over it anytime

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)!
