We brought take out from City Barbecue for a friend who is/was in IU Methodist Hospital so she could have have something a little different than the typical hospital fare. What a great meal we had! Pulled pork, chicken, corn bread, mac 'n cheese and more. It transported very well and we feasted heartily. Everything was really tasty and we... More

Ordered ribs, brisket, pulled pork and a bunch of sides. Food was good and staff were friendly. Cornbread and Texas Toast were wonderful. Restaurant was large.

First visit, so we were offered free samples. City Sampler was plenty of food for 3. Meats were tender and tasty. Good sauces at the table. Sides were good - green beans and collards, quite good; Mac and Cheese, not so much.

We have ate at several of the City Barbeque's and found this particular restaurant to be just a little bit better. When we first entered the restaurant the cashier heard us talking about the different kinds of meat and offered us samples of the meats we were talking about. The PR employee's, not just the cashier, but several employee's made... More

We were a group of 6 Europeans wanting to try something (that we at least see as) prototypically american dining. We found the place via TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. The restaurant/diner looks like something you would expect from a movie about diners. The menu offered auite a lot of meat (pulled pork, chicken), burgers and so... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for something for dinner close to our hotel and decided on this place. Upon entering we were greeted by a fabulous smell of a smoking pit. We ordered our slightly overpriced meal and when it was ready we were excited to try it. I had the brisket and she had the pulled pork and... More

Food like this usually gives me heartburn but this meat was amazing!!! I am not from Indianapolis but when I left Indy I was sad that I wasn't going to eat here again for... More

We wanted to try something new and City BBQ was suggested by a family member. The host/cashier, Christian, was very nice and helpful, got the visit off on a very positive foot. He made suggestions for first timers, even suggesting the lunch portion for smaller appetites. Very good 3-rib portion, tender and tasty w/o adding their sauces that were on... More

Nice meat and side varieties for a Party. The restaurant provided the paper products as well as two different bbq flavors. The mac & cheese was amazing!

We needed an affordable but nice dinner for our wedding party after our rehearsal. The room(s) at this location can occupy up to 60 -we had 45 and they provided our own private 'buffet' and it was amazing. Great people to work with and the cost was very fair!!
