One of the few BBQ places in town. Food is decent. Place is clean and family friendly. It's a little pricey for a family outing.

Cashier was helpful and friendly! My boyfriend love it and I was impressed by the halh pound sandwitches. However, Boyfriend and I both got a little stomach uncomfortable after having ribs. Wouldn't blame to the restaurant because it could be our health condition was not perfect at that time.

I have not been to their physical location. I was just at a wedding they cateredand it was delicious. I can only imagine it would be even better if you went to their resturant. My favorite was the ribs; best I've ever had.

For Barbeque this is the place to go. The ribs are meaty and the sauce if fine. The corn bread tastes like real corn bread. This is what I like in BBQ.

I have eaten here frequently and I have enjoyed everything I have had. I have had the pulled chicken, the pulled pork, the ribs, the brisket as well as their sweet tea. Although the pulled pork is not as great as I get in North Carolina it is pretty good. Get it with the slaw topping and the vinegar sauce... More

Granted, I haven't had BBQ from the handful of street vendors like Bandit's on Reynolds near Nebraska or Gene's in a parking lot in Holland. But, of the two BBQ-only restaurants in W Toledo 'burbs, City Barbecue is superior. Their selection of sauces is nicer, their sides are good, and their menu is larger. I'm not a BBQ expert, so...

I have eaten here a few times and each time the food was good. I always get the ribs. I have been with people that have gotten the brisket and they said it was good. My favorite sides are the green beans and the coleslaw. The food was a bit pricy but the portions were a very good size. This... More

I just moved to Toledo and have been making the rounds of bbq places. Did this one today. When I got to the door, I was reluctant to continue, as they had an arrowboard sign pointing to bbq places, mostly in North and South Carolina. This is just bubbaque and couldn't even get entered into the Memphis in May contest.... More

This would be a terrific barbeque joint if they would only add a few healthier options as side dishes. As it stands, there is no good way to eat here and not blow your diet or good intentions. All they need is one or two veggies without bacon to add a big notch to their menu!

We have been here multiple times. We are routinely amazed. Not merely satisfied, but amazed. The food is off the charts good. Authentic barbecue like I remember from my southern grandmother making when I was a kid. I understand from their website that they have multiple locations in Ohio and Indiana, but you don't get the "chain" feel. The owner... More
