Great barbeque and a fair price. Food is excellent and the portions are ore than fair. They also offer turkey for the holidays which is nice. Location not so great but the food and staff make it worth the while.

Very tasty. Closest to N. Carolina BBQ you can get up North. I love the pulled pork sandwiches. Wish the slaw was chopped up finer. Try slaw on the sandwich like they do down South.

Fantastic, will definitely be back! The ribs, brisket, and baked beans were awesome! Quite a menu to choose from, and look forward to my next visit.

I have visited the various City BBQ restaurants around Columbus. All of their food is excellent. My favorites are their beef brisket, corn pudding, vinegar slaw. The Mac and cheese is great too. It's not a fancy joint but if you want something good to eat where you can get in and out quickly, this is one of the best... More

We pick up food from here at least once a week. I love the chicken and ribs. My hubby loves the green beans and the hush puppies are everyone's favorite.

I smell it from the street upon approach! My mouth waters as I turn into my parking spot! City BBQ is affordable, fast, friendly, and ooooh, soooo, tender and deliciously prepared, including the famous 'smoke ring' present on their meats. MY FAVORITE ORDER: 1/2 slab of dry rubbed ribs, (sauce is served on the side), potato salad, pulled pork infused... More

So I heard great reviews from various websites about how good the food was at this restaurant. I was headed to Scioto Downs and wanted to mix it up from my normal routine so the lady and I decided to stop in. It reminded me when I walked in of Dicky's in Lewis Center, so I was immediately excited. The... More
