The wide variety of sauces are so delicious, not one bite is the same as the other. Always smells like a bar b q.....and staff seem to handle themselves well...great family gathering place so everyone is happy.

The last few times we have purchased take out from CBB the meat has been completely dry. The pulled pork on December 8 was as dry as anything we have ever had. It was not tasty or juicy. This place used to be first rate, but they now charge more and deliver less. We are done with CBB.

My wife and I stopped in for dinner tonight, as we do every 4-6 weeks. She had pulled pork and several sides while I had a half slab of ribs and sides. The meats were smoked to perfection, fall off the bone tender, juicy, and more flavorful than ever! The place seemed to be operating more smoothly than we've seen... More

Brisket, Pork Butt, Ribs and Chicken. You can't go wrong. Plenty of great sides. My favorite is the corn pudding but the baked beans and green beans rate right up there. Picnic table seating this place has sprouted up all over town. Never had a bad meal.

We found this restaurant, close to our hotel, on our GPS, so we decided to give it a try. Upon entering we saw it was cafeteria style but we prefer sit down. It's not the type of BBQ we are accustomed to. The line was not bad. We ordered and our. meals came soon after. I prefer ribs which are... More

We enjoy every trip to City Barbeque. An assortment of smoked meat from which to choose, chicken, pork or beef..... they are all good! The staff is always helpful explaining the different "plates and combos". I've never had a bad meal here. They offer a choice of bbq sausages at your table..... Even the sides are excellent. Whether it's the... More

Forget the Montgomery Inn, this is the real deal for barbecue in Ohio. The brisket is fabulous and in the Winter they make chili with the Brisket. I have eaten in the restaurant and had takeout. The sides are great and the beans are a must. This is real barbecue, slow smoked no sauce until you add it yourself but... More

This is a good place to come to if you want quality food at quality prices. Order your food at the counter, pick your food up, and find yourself a place to sit. Easy in, easy out without problems or having to worry about anything other than what sauce you want to put on it. It's a Good Place to... More
