Me and my family love City BBQ, the food is always great and the portions are always big! The service is fast as well. The only down fall if you plan to eat there, is that there is not a lot of seating. The thing I love to get the most besides the sides is the Chipotle Pulled Rib Sandwich... More

Ate here for dinner while in town on business. Service was fast & friendly and the food was very good. I got a sampler platter with 4 different meats and all of them were good! I would recommend this place to anyone who likes BBQ.

As I travel, I always check out Q joints. City is the best chain I have found yet. Pulled Pork and ribs are excellent. Haven't tried everything, but other customers have told me "it's all good". Prices and portions are reasonable.

We stopped there for dinner, we have been there before. My g/f loves their bbq. I think it is just ok, but this last time there the place was so full of smoke, I could barely breathe. It smelled as if a chimney flu was blocked! We got our food to go and as soon as I got home I... More

We frequent City BBQ about twice a month, and are never disappointed. Food is always very good and the service is friendly and quick. A big step up from fast food quality wise, but the wait time is minimal.

Every time we are in the area we have to hit this place up. Although we have eaten at other locations of City Barbeque we like this one the best. It has ample parking, the best BBQ we have eaten and the atmosphere is awesome. Well worth a try.

Got this Saturday night togo and was not disappointed. We got the pick 2 meat platter and the 3 sides plate and it was definitely enough to feed two people. It was all tasty but the brisket was phenomenal! I will certainly be dining here again when in the mood for BBQ.

Its almost "just fast food" I love good BBQ and this is ok, but not great. You go through a corral to order and are processed through the line quickly and that is what you get. Processed food quickly. Its ok if you are in a hurry but don't expect it to be great.

My husband and myself love to buy food at City Barbeque in Centerville. Sometimes, we eat in inside and most of the times my husband goes on Tuesday night Ribs night ($1.00). Take out. He buys ribs enough for our family of four. My grandson and myself loves the ribs. My husband prefers their brisket. It is excellent. Their barbecue... More

Outstanding service! Quick, correct order, great personalities. Fun with the customers! My wife and I both got the naked brisket, bakes beans and she got corn bread and I got hush puppies. The food was hot! Exceptional good taste. And plenty of food for the cost!!!
