Great Bar-B-Q brisket sandwich!

Have only been here once for lunch and it was bustling. I sampled as much as I could off other's plates and everything was very tasty. I had the BBQ brisket sandwich which was smoky, super tender and delicious. Will return.

Ate at Urban Barbeque this past Sunday for lunch. I was able to find a parking place right out front which was a pleasant surprise. There is also a small lot next door. We were seated right away and the waitress took a drink order quickly. The menu was varied offering sandwiches and dinners. My companions had been there before... More

I went for lunch on Saturday, 12/12. The place was a little slow with a few of us at the bar and a few at tables. The menu is pretty good; decent selections and prices. I went with the sampler and tried the pulled pork, ribs and brisket with bbq beans and slaw for sides. Condiments (bbq sauce - 3... More

Nice place overall with friendly staff. The ribs and brisket seemed to have much more fat than we are acustomed too.

This place is fantastic. The meats are smoked to perfection, the sides are all equally good, and the choice of 3 bbq sauces are so good - sweet, heat, and Carolina style. An absolute MUST try are the honey jabanero chicken wings - they are really not very spicy, but the flavor and texture are the best wings I've ever... More

I never thought I liked it, until I tried theirs. Not sure what they do to make it so moist and delicious..but I love it! I usually do sides of Mac and cheese, collard greens and bread when I go. So bring your vegetarian friends. They can still find amazing food options at this place.

My friends and I come here every couple of months because it is unbelieveable!!! The flavor and quality of the food is consistently delicious! You must try the honey habanero wings for an app. The blackened fish tacos and ribs are fabulous! The bar has a pretty good beer selection too. The best part is how good you smell when... More
