I was really looking forward to eating at City BBQ after reading the reviews. Atmosphere was great and service friendly. The problem was the ribs. I ordered a half rack and 1/4 was inedible. Fatty and tough (see pic).

While a bit on the pricey side got a casual lunch, we always enjoy our meal at City Barbeque. This location has outdoor seating which made for a very enjoyable meal!

My 11 yr old granddaughter loves ribs! She & her daddy wolfed down a slab. My pulled chicken sandwich with sweet sauce was most excellent. A terrific selection of sides! Not a fancy place, but definitely flavorful!

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!
Our menu boasts premium smoked meats such as Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, All Natural Turkey Breast, Texas Smoked Sausage, St. Louis-Style Ribs, All Natural Chicken. Pair any smoked meat with our delicious City Sides for a true 'que meal! City Sides include baked beans with brisket, mac & cheese, corn pudding, green beans with bacon, fresh-cut fries, mixed greens with pork, potato salad, hand dipped hush puppies, side salad, gumbo and corn bread. Finish it off with one of our made-from-scratch desserts: peach cobbler, triple chocolate cake and banana pudding.

We proudly dedicate our lives to the pursuit of barbeque and happiness (yes, in that order)!
