We love bbq! At first we had a difficult time choosing, but it was made a little easier when we found out that they were out of ribs (huge bummer to the person that originated the stop for that very reason). Good excuse to go back though ;) Three of us had the pulled pork and really enjoyed it-loved how... More

My first time at City BBQ and actually had lots of trouble choosing what I wanted. I ended up choosing the pulled pork sandwich. The meat was very tender and juicy. This is actually the first time where the meat was not already sauced. I chose fries and mac and cheese as my 2 sides. The fries were pretty good,... More

Thanks for the great review! Our fries are to die for when you add cheese & bacon on top... I have been craving them all week! I am glad you enjoyed your first experience with us. Hope to see you soon! More

Came in for the first time and was warmly welcomed by the cashier who gladly proceeded to explain their menu and offered some samples! Absolutely great service! Ordered the sampler which was certainly enough for 2 people. The food came out hot and delicious! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because of the sauces. I LOVE... More

Stopped in after our trip at the zoo... Food was good and staff were extremely friendly. No real complaints.. The meat was really good, but wasn't too fond of the different bbq sauces. Regardless, a good trip and would return!

The food was solid. I wasn't terribly hungry but I needed a quick bite and the City Barbecue turkey sandwich was delicious. They also sell a bunch of craft root beers as well. This place also has solid FREE Wi-Fi as well. I was able to sit and work while eating my sandwich. I have been here a couple other... More

Just came in from Texas and the bbq at City is just as good as anything we had in Austin or Dallas. Had two different kinds of sandwiches when we stopped in and they were delicious. Great sauce, meats cooked well and the servings aren't skimpy. We'll be back.

If you love BBQ, then you should eat here.... you won't be disappointed! All of the meats are delicious, and all of the sauces are amazing as well. I always get 3 little sandwiches (they really aren't little) so I can have 3 different meats. The corn pudding is really tasty too... but I usually don't have room for it!

Moist, fresh, tasty and wonderful meals all around. Was so pleased I purchased meat to bring home for sandwiches tomorrow.The prices for the amount of food served is very reasonable. My husband stopped here on a business trip and decided we were driving over 2 hours to go back for BBQ. Hopefully they will continue to expand and consider opening... More
