Barbecue..Yum!

I've been here several times. The food is really good, service is fast, prices are fair. We took our church seniors for lunch in April and this place took care of us very fast. I will go back again!

My boyfriend actually recommended this place to me while we were visiting. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it does have some very, very tasty pulled pork! Staff were friendly; it was a cozy environment and well kept. A variety of sauces were placed on the table and everything was extremely convenient. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich... More

Quick supper stop on the way home from Dayton. Great food and friendly employees. Will stop again when in the big city might just get some to take home also!!

I love this place. They have the best BBQ in town, and their side dishes are delicious. My wife loves the pulled port. I love the ribs, baked beans and mac & cheese. My only complaint is that I like to be served, rather than ordering your food and sitting down to eat. But I didn't lower their rating because... More

Let me start this by saying that this is not a traditional sit down restaurant. You get in line and order your food. You also get a cup & serve yourself your beverage of choice. Don't let this fool you though. The food is very good. I love the brisket and my husband loves the pulled pork. There are several... More

Trip Advisor led us here, and it did not disappoint. We both got the pulled pork sandwich, which was delicious. They had 3 different sauces to chose from and they were all yummy. Their french fries were very good too. The meat was very tender and the prices were reasonable. It is cafeteria style, and the line moves quickly. We'll... More

City BBQ offers some of the BEST pulled pork I have ever eaten, and I have sampled BBQ pork from many restaurants and private entities. I was surprised with the taste, and the three sauces are all very good. The vinegar cole slow separates itself from others', and they overload you with delicious fries if you choose that for a...

What a wonderful and flavorful experience is to eat here. The portions are well priced, nice and fast service. "The meat seems to melt in your mouth"

Going to City Barbeque is a real treat! The food is prepared on site and it is delicious. The restaurant does not "cut corners" in the quality of food that is prepared. The food is consistently good all the time. The beef brisket is "out of this world"! During Lent this is the place to go for catfish! Outstanding!

Having tried this a couple times, I'd say I can give an accurate review: to start, the quality of their meats is great! Very tender, thoroughly cooked, and well-seasoned! The sides that I have had, including Mac and cheese, hushpuppies, baked beans, coleslaw and so on, have been consistently good (the hushpuppies are always fresh and hot!). Now I'm used... More
