Not a lot of bar-b-que in our area. It was ok but over priced for portions and quality. Restaurant was clean and had a fun vibe. Would rather go down the road to Carolina Brothers. They have good bar-b-que and reasonable prices. No frills and good food.

Though anyone who lives here knows that's less than stellar. C'mon, this is the south, good BBQ should be part of the landscape. Sadly, not so much. Anyway, Urban BBQ is really one of the better places around. I gave it an average review because there was just nothing in between average and very good. My son and I split... More

I love BBQ (it's my choice for birthday dinner) and was excited when I heard a joint was coming to our local plaza. Sadly, I was disappointed when I ate there. The service was friendly and helpful but the food was just average (Famous Dave's is better). The beans were slightly better than Dave's and the brisket was tender. The... More

First off: full rack of ribs was great! (better be at $24). Common decor. Serve yourself does save tip $. Pulled pork was warm, not hot, and chewy in part. Sauces are unoriginal. Collards delicious. Cole slaw adequate. Cornbread very good, with bits of corn no less (nice touch!). Appetizer "Soul Rolls" very strange: fried tortilla filled with cheese, beans... More

I was terribly disappointed. I had heard radio ads about this place, so my wife and I went out of our way on a Saturday for lunch. Yuck. Cold food. I understand that potato salad is cold, but not the meat! Terribly disappointed.

Enjoyed a heaping sliced beef brisket sandwich and fries at lunch. Very tasty with large portions. If you get a sandwich by itself -- split an order of fries as there will be plenty. You can order meat by the pound for take out as well. My first visit as I was only in town on business and was recommended... More

Good coleslaw, good barbecued ranch beans; pulled pork was so so, room size about 50 X 50 with no dividers. 3 or 4 booths on each side wall and 6 tables in the middle of the floor, walls covered with unattractive stuff. Not a particularly pretty place, but as a fast food joint it's ok. Nothing I would rush back... More

First of all, don't expect great pork barbeque when their are lots of Texas logos. Texans don't understand that pork barbeque should be a redundant term! That being said, the pork is ok, but (not surprisingly) the brisket is better. The wing "drumsticks" were about the same size as the actual drumsticks on the chicken - seriously?!? The side dishes...

Probably the worst $15 I have ever spent on BBQ ever. Ordered 2 meats combo at the Norbeck branch - 1/2 rack ribs and sausage. The ribs had hardly any meat. The meat was dry and was probably cooked yesterday. The sausage was soft - probably again carried over from yesterday - zero snap. I left the corn bread aside... More

We are a barbeque loving family and this place was great - reasonable prices, good selection, fairly quick service. Order at the counter and the food is brought to your table. The brisket was wonderful, served with choice of sides and cornbread. Lots of decor on the walls and the flags of each branch of service hanging inside. When I... More
