“Great Taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

A bit pricey for a "fast food" atmosphere, but the food is good. Barbecue can be a little fatty, but unless you make your own, that's what you'll get. The restaurant folks will not take the time to trim off the fat the way I would at home. Many sauces to choose from, too, so every visit can be different!

Great tasting sides, and unique bottled drinks help round out the dinner. Located next to Graeter's Ice Cream--a perfect finish to the spicy sandwiches.

“OK BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

First time I have been there in awhile. Not bad, but not the greatest. Not cheap but not the most expensive.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

The food is good and prices are reasonable. The sweet tea is delicious, and my husband loves the corn pudding. Their sauces are very flavorful and meat is good.

“Wonderful flavour, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I'm kinda new to the whole American BBQ style (I'm an Aussie) but this was a great experience.
I loved the flavour, it had good atmosphere and the decor suited the establishment perfectly.

“Family Pack is a great deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We bought the family pack (I believe it serves 6) recently with the beef brisket, two sides, buns, any and all of their three bbq sauces, and cornbread. What a deal! The sides we chose were redskin potato salad and green beans, but I've had them all and they are all delicious. The brisket is so tender, and not fat--really excellent. I've had brisket at other bbq places that isn't nearly as good as City BBQ's. Highly recommend this place. We live in Centerville and will keep going back.
