We've been to several City Barbeque restaurants and this one was great. It's difficult to keep a place clean in a high traffic dinner time but they do it well. The rest room was a little cruddy but there were a lot of people. We...More

Love love love this BBQ! I love that it is dry rub and you get to test different sauces. Corn pudding, hush puppies and tangy coleslaw- maybe I just need to move closer. Don't even start on the banana pudding, it looks so good but...More

We had sandwiches (pork and sliced beef). Both were good but not great. Would I eat it again? Yes. Would I go out of my way to eat it again? No. The tea and lemonade were the best aspects of the meal. We chose it...More

Four of us ate here and were not impressed. Two of our group had eaten here before and were surprised that the brisket wasn't near as good as the last time they ate here. It had a salty/burned wood taste that we had to cover...More

This was some of the best BBQ we ever tasted. The servings were enough to share. Between my crew we got ribs, brisket, the sampler and sides - it was all very good. We recommend it highly!

It smelled so good on the outside, we wen in and ordered pulled pork and turkey sandwich. It came to 18 bucks including fries. The sandwiches were plain and the fries were ok. Not worth the money at all..Disappointed.

I've never had anything which wasn't good. The price is a little high, in my opinion. I wish they were cheaper on their sides - that would help. But, I keep returning.

For my first visit to Kentucky I was looking forward to having good Barbecue. Unfortunately I found both the brisket and ribs to be dry and the sauces unremarkable

At City Barbeque, we are 100% devoted to the craft of barbeque. All of our meats are smoked on-site at each restaurant, hand rubbed with spices, and take upwards of 18 hours to become pure barbeque perfection. Our employees prepare our sides throughout the day from scratch in the restaurant and give it the same attention they would give to their own family. This is barbeque in its truest form, created by people who are dedicated to doing it right. Enjoy your meal in our restaurant or order online for our very popular party pack meals for take out. Having a special event and don't want to worry about the food? We are famous for our delicious and affordable catering. Our catering teams specialize in catering wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners, catered company events and picnics, party catering, holiday catering, graduation party catering, and all around fun.
