Business lunch Had the chicken which was good. For sides I tried their version of corn cake which was not edible in my opinion. The green beans we average. I would go back but maybe just get meat.

One of the better BBQ places I visit while travelling the Mideast of the US. Ribs shouldn’t fall off the bone. They should gently hold on to the bone when you bite. Their sides are good. The side salad is huge.

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!
