Great as always! Brisket sandwich, corn casserole and sweet potato casserole. Love it, best brisket anywhere. I wish I had room for chocolate sheet cake. I wish we had city BBQ where I live. Definite repeat visit.

We stop in for lunch periodically. I have found it to be hit and miss, with more misses in the last year or so, but the pulled pork and brisket one day this week were the best I have ever had here. The flavor and texture were great. I hope it's a trend.

We used to live in Columbus and I was looking forward to eating here. It was very busy the evening we were here. We ordered the City Sampler and they were out of turkey, so we had to order extra of another meat. I thought the brisket was too dry. The pulled pork was moist and the sausage was OK.... More

Been going for 10 years and the same consistent slice of heaven! From pulled pork sandwiches, French fries that are consistently fabulous! Sweet tea to make Scarlet happy and all sides that taste homemade!

We get takeout semi frequently from here and it's always great! We love the ribs, brisket, and pulled pork.

Greasy bbq that is nothing special. People in the area rave about it but I think of it as chipotle bbq. Too much salt, no enough true bbq style. Lots of sauce.

Jordan F, Guest Relations Manager at City Barbeque, responded to this review

Hey Jasson! Thank you for the feedback. Just wanted to make sure... when you say "lots of sauce," your meat did not come with sauce, correct? We do not serve sauce on anything except the pulled chicken, plus we lightly brush the chicken and ribs. Anyway, sorry you're not a big fan. If you're willing to give us another try... More

GREAT B-B-Q! Several sauce choices including a really good Carolina sauce they call 'Swine Wine.' From the brisket, to the corn pudding, to the collard greens to the service...you can never go wrong at City Barbeque.

I went here a couple of times for lunch when I was in the area for business for a week. Very good barbeque. I had chicken once and pork the other time and both were good although I thought the pork was a little better. The fries were also particularly good and plentiful. If you're in a BBQ mood, it's...
