We had the beef brisket tacos and they did not disappoint. The sauce was good, the coleslaw was the good kind of coleslaw and the flavours were awesome together! You’ll need to call in your order a day in advance since they make to order...but that just means everything is fresh. The staff was really nice too. Would definitely consider coming here again!More

I tried the ribs with honey chipolte sauce, chicken wings with the memphis sauce, baked beans and mac&cheese bites. All cooked to perfection and tasty. I've tried all the others who profess to cook this fare but they just don't compare. Stone City BBQ is...the real deal and definitely worth a try. I'll be back to try more of the menu for sure.More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The pulled pork is the best I have ever tasted! The brisket and coleslaw are amazing! The portions are tops. The owners are so friendly. You will not find any better BBQ in the Kingston area. The prices are...so reasonable compared to the restaurants in Kingston. I can't wait to go back. Give this place a try and you won't be disappointed.More

Finally someone in town that does BBQ right! Had the pulled pork and the brisket. The brisket had a nice smoke ring with excellent flavour. It was a little dry but the delicious sauce solved that problem. The pulled pork was perfect. Some of the...best I have had. The coleslaw was very good, and the beans were the absolute best. I don't normally care much for beans. They were sweet with pulled pork mixed in with a tiny bit of heat. Typing this out is making me want to go get some more right now.I was driving to the US to get decent BBQ but no more! This is the only place in town that does BBQ well. If you want real BBQ in Kingston it's Stone City or nothing.More

Was lucky enough to check out Stone City on their opening day, solid city style bbq with decent portions. My wife and I tried the pulled pork and brisket sandwiches as well as their Memphis and Kansas City style sauces. The KC sweet sauce was...sweeter then I’d like but the Memphis sauce worked well in the brisket. Things to watch: lunch hour lines are crazy, with a mix of students and Military crowding this tiny spot quickly. They have also been running out of food often, so it’s either brave the lines and eat, or wait it out and potentially miss out. It’s worth checking out for sure. It’s about time Kingston had some BBQ not attached to franchise name.More
