City BBQ is one of my favorite restaurants. Great BBQ and all their sides are delicious and unique and nice sized portions, too. Also a great alternative for those who eat paleo/primal. I eat here at least once a week.

The service is always great not to mention the food! The brisket sandwich (I order it naked, no bun) is a pretty large portion and of course it isn't complete without an order of hush puppies! My husband has a health appetite and never leaves hungry like we do at other BBQ restaurants. The chocolate cake is to die for!... More

I love to go for lunch and get their brisket sandwich lunch deal. I always get their green beans, Mac n'cheese, and corn bread with it. The corn bread is sweet, moist, and buttery.

Love this place. Food is always excellent. The sides are just as good as the bbq. The corn pudding is scrumptious. Price is right. Restaurant is clean and staff are friendly. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Excellent BBQ food. I love their chicken, my husband and family love the pulled pork. It's expensive but worth it for a treat.

Walk up, quickly place your order and pull a couple of ice cold Shiner Bocks from the ice chest. Great start to an excellent dinner. After a sip or two, your order is completed and ready to enjoy. It's hot and tasty! I prefer the brisket served in slices versus chopped. A personal preference, but still enjoyed it.

Good pulled pork. Good ribs. Sides are terrific. We have eaten in and taken out. Great family place. Order at counter, self-seat. Graters next store for dessert!

Yes, it's made a Texan happy! Brisket is my personal fav with potato salad and Cole slaw. But my husband loves the chicken, ribs and pork as well (he's from South Dakota, so not as picky about BBQ). Download their app for points and rewards!

We ordered two family meals and brought them back home. Once again you have out done yourselves. We had this same meals four years again and it was good then as well.

This place has great barbecue! I love the pulled pork and the half chicken. They also offer a great variety of sides. Service is always fast and friendly. I love the outdoor seating on nice days.
