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)!

Great BBQ in the north!

Being sotherners, we were apprehensive about trying BBQ in the north but we were pleasantly surprised. GReat BBQ and homemade sides made it a wonderful meal. This is definitely a do-over. My husband and I each had the pork BBQ sandwich and it was delicious. We also enjoyed the vinegar slaw. I... read more

Was in town on business and this is within walking distance from the Courtyard Marriott. EXCELLENT BBQ! Casual, fun atmosphere. Order at the counter and grab a seat. I had a tasting platter called the City something, which included brisket! Chicken! Ribs, cornbread and 2 sides. We shared between 3 people and it was plenty.

Good service but food was just so-so. Potato salad was very good but the beans were cold and the meat was overcooked.

This was the first time going to City Barbeque, I would definitely go again. The restaurant was very clean, Staff was very helpful. Great setting for Family and friends together inside or on the Patio. Very easy to feed 4 people for under 30$.

This place smokes their meat on location. Let me tell you, these are one of the best tasting ribs you will ever get. Not to mention the pulled pork, HEAVEN! No servers, but it's worth it, great place to sit down and a large outdoor patio exceptional for dogs.

We stopped in for a late dinner during a baseball tournament with about 20 people. It was during last hour of service and the food was excellent. The pulled chicken and gumbo were outstanding. Nice atmosphere, you order yourself and pick up the food yourself. Very cheap - $20 for 2. They also have beer and wine. Would definitely eat... More

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
