Description: 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)!

This is a barbecue lovers dream! We tried the pulled pork sandwiches love the smokey flavor,french fries( one order enough for 2 people) baked beans with brisket, corn pudding and can't forget the peach cobbler with real whipped topping. The barbecue sauce was finger licking good. Truly the best we ever had and we have tried a lot of barbecue!

Located on Richmond Road at the intersection of Man of War. Great BBQ of all types. Reasonable price and big portions. Today I had a Texas Sausage on a roll and some great seasoned fries. They have beef,pork,chicken or turkey plates. Better get there early as they fill up quick at Lunch.

“Can't beat it for great food & terrific svc.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We visit Lexington a few times a year and this has become a MUST on each of our trips. The BBQ is delicious, the atmosphere very cozy/cool and the ppl very helpful.

You order at a counter when you walk in, but the food is ready quick, you serve your own drinks (w/ refills) and the BBQ AND sides can't be beat. The FF's are rocking, as are the BBQ sauces, so try them all.

“OK but not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013 via mobile

We eat BBQ all over the south, too, and this was just OK. It's a small chain and the staff was very nice, especially the guy relocating from Cincinnati. It's quite sanitary and upscale. The sides were good. Chicken was so-so. Pulled pork (bun, too) were... mushy. Sauces sweet but good. You order and pay at a counter, then file down the line to get your food on a metal tray, then get your drink from a machine, then find a table, but the food is then not hot when you get to start eating. We might go back. We liked the photos and stories on the wall about their travels.
