City barbeque is a great restaurant. That smokey flavor with their fire sauce is recommended. Be sure to try the city sampler.

The food was excellent. Pulled pork and brisket sandwiches were so tasty!!! The ribs were "fall off the bone" tender. We tried many sides: beans, corn pudding, green beans, and mac and cheese.... prepared just right!!! Try it!!!
