The barbecue pork is tender, savory and very good. The green beans are homestyle cooked fresh green beans, although I would prefer they allow diners to add their own salt and pepper instead of seasoning in the kitchen.

Lots of options, very fast service, friendly people, great barbecue. The bbq sauce itself is definitely competitive with other local bbq places. They have generous side dish portions, all of which are very tasty. Their corn pudding is soooooo tasty. I recommend getting a variety of different BBQ sauces with your order. A little on the pricey side but nothing... More

My husband and I LOVE to eat here! Everything we have had is great. The Texas toast is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I always purchase extra to snack on later.

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.
