We were driving to Dayton and got hungry for BBQ when we saw the roadsign for City BBQ. The staff were great in making recommendations to us "first timers" and we were not disappointed. All the food is homemade and tastes that way. The BBQ was amazing but so were all the sides. Next time we drive past we will... More

Very casual (sandwiches served on paper wrapping) but the food is almost southern comfort good food. Seasonal sweet potato casserole is very good as is the corn pudding (rich and creamy) . I really like the self serve pickles, too!

A bit pricey for a "fast food" atmosphere, but the food is good. Barbecue can be a little fatty, but unless you make your own, that's what you'll get. The restaurant folks will not take the time to trim off the fat the way I would at home. Many sauces to choose from, too, so every visit can be different!... More

First time I have been there in awhile. Not bad, but not the greatest. Not cheap but not the most expensive.

The food is good and prices are reasonable. The sweet tea is delicious, and my husband loves the corn pudding. Their sauces are very flavorful and meat is good.

I'm kinda new to the whole American BBQ style (I'm an Aussie) but this was a great experience. I loved the flavour, it had good atmosphere and the decor suited the establishment perfectly.

We bought the family pack (I believe it serves 6) recently with the beef brisket, two sides, buns, any and all of their three bbq sauces, and cornbread. What a deal! The sides we chose were redskin potato salad and green beans, but I've had them all and they are all delicious. The brisket is so tender, and not fat--really... More

While visiting family in Dayton, we visited City Barbecue. I tried the pulled pork sandwich with a side of potato salad and french fries. The pulled pork sandwich was excellent and more importantly the bbq sauce was fantastic. I liked the variety sauces available at the table and decided my favorites were the original and sweet BBQ sauces. The potato... More

We love to eat at City BBQ in Centerville. The BBQ is awesome, they have great sides and a decent beer selection. It's a great family restaurant. Prices and serving sizes are good. Very wonderful types of BBQ sauces are available. The service is outstanding. We do carryout sometimes too, always a great meal! We highly recommend this place!!

IMHO, this is what a bbq place should be. Nothing fancy but excellent food at reasonable prices. Everything is a la carte so no extras you don't want. Cafeteria style ordering. Reasonable 5 minute wait even though it was really busy. Plastic, help your self utensils. Regular tables & chairs. We had a beef brisket & a pulled pork sandwich.... More
