Description: 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)!

The wife and I ate at City Barbeque today. I had beef brisket and she had pulled pork. My brisket was top notch. I've had good and bad brisket, and this stuff was done right. Tender and smokey. Yum yum. The sides were just ok. I had cornbread and mac & cheese. I found both to be a little bland.... More

Our family travels together a lot. Wherever we go we're interested in good bar-b-que. City Barbeque in Blue Ash (Cincinnati) is GREAT. One of our two favorites nationally - consistently. We're in Cincinnati at least four times a year for family events and we always stop back. The food is slow cooked and all food choices are options - pork... More

Our go to bbq joint! I could make a meal on the baked beans and corn bread, but save room for the pulled pork. It is awesome! Have tried the barbeque chicken and the pulled chicken and those were great too. Great mac and cheese and love the deep fried pickles. Nice atmosphere with picnic tables, a choice of sauces... More

Have been at here many times and it still continues to deliver. Got the pulled port Carolina Style and it was great. Always get the corn pudding... Better than Mom used to make.
