Enjoyed the pulled pork, corn bread, and fries. The pork was very tender and the cornbread moist and sweet. Very budget friendly.

The meat is about a 6/10. It's decent but needs more flavor and could be served more fresh. I had the brisket and ribs, neither were the best I'd ever had. The sides and BBQ sauce were great, but the meats need some help to...More

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!
