It was all I had heard and more

Finally, after hearing people at our church rave about it, we tried it. My husband and I both had the pulled pork sandwiches with potato salad and green beans. The potato salad is the best we have found outside my mother's kitchen! It was great. The beans, too. The pork was tender and tasty; sauce... read more

Overall pretty good BBQ. I tried a sampler plate of pulled pork, brisket, sausage, and turkey with TX toast and 2 sides...I chose slaw and baked beans. The brisket was my favorite meat...the beans were fantastic! They put chunks of brisket in them. I did think their spicy BBQ sauce could've been hotter...but it was still tasty. I was kinda... More

Wow! First of all, they let us sample the brisket when we said we'd never been there...then we ordered the city sampler and they brought us a sample of every side dish and smoked meats! A bargain even without all the extras they gave us! Make sure you are hungry!!!

We get take out here quite often. We know we will like whatever we order. We're not big eaters, so we often share the 1/2 baked (grilled?) chicken dinner with 2 sides. Delicious! We like the medium and hot sauce. I have ordered large orders for a family reunion; all were happy and full; did not disappoint. My husband often... More

I've eaten at a number of City BBQ restaurants, as well as the one in Centerville. Overall it's very good que without having to drive to Eastern North Carolina to get it.
