The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food. Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere. So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for! Our menu boasts premium smoked meats such as Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, All Natural Turkey Breast, Texas Smoked Sausage, St. Louis-Style Ribs, All Natural Chicken. Pair any smoked meat with our delicious City Sides for a true 'que meal! City Sides include baked beans with brisket, mac & cheese, corn pudding, green beans with bacon, fresh-cut fries, mixed greens with pork, potato salad, hand dipped hush puppies, side salad, gumbo and corn bread. Finish it off with one of our made-from-scratch desserts: peach cobbler, triple chocolate cake and banana pudding. We proudly dedicate our lives to the pursuit of barbeque and happiness (yes, in that order)!

First time yesterday with business associates. The meat selections come in great quantities and are deliciously prepared. It is cafeteria style and bus your own empties. So it is a very informal setting that puts people in a family outing mood. There is a decent selection of beers, again serve yourself. When my colleagues and I had a chat we... More

We eat there often. The brisket and ribs are great. This time I tries the 1/2 smoked chicken. This was the largest and tastiest chicken i had ever had. The sides are amazing.

Had the wonderful opportunity of dining year with three business colleagues tonight. Brisket was tender the beer cold the side dishes wonderful especially the cornbread and the custom sauces especially the sweet barbecue was indescribable. If you like traditional Southern barbecue in a no-frills family oriented place with some good blues music you definitely want to come and visit here.... More

Got to have their brisket on Texas toast. It is delicious. Two sides were green beans and Cole slaw. Had Unsweet tea with free refills. They have four sauces to add to the brisket. I like the spicy one, it Enhances the flavor of the brisket.

My husband enjoys barbeque. He had the Naked Brisket, baked beans and mac&cheese. All enjoyable. He was disappointed in the BBQ sauces though. He's rather picky. I had to agree that they were lacking. I had the Naked Brisket too, corn pudding, and hush puppies. All yummy.

We had a large office lunch catered by City -- it was really terrific and a huge hit. The pulled pork is outstanding but the brisket and smoked turkey were favorites. It was really easy and the staff was super helpful.
