Love the corn pudding and I like my pulled pork Carolina style with the slaw. Prairie Fire adds the special touch I enjoy. Good counter service and always quality food.

The best time to go is on a tuesday because they have a rib bone special. Make sure you go early because the run out about 7 pm. I also like their sides.

Stopped in here on Veterans Day. They were providing sandwich platters to vets free. We chose brisket and the sandwiches were awesome. Also came with two sides; gumbo side was excellent filled with brisket, beans with ham excellent and fries plentiful. Perfect lunch. Thanks CityBarbeque powell!!!

Great pulled pork and beef brisket though other meats are available. The sides all taste homemade. The sweet tea is a treat as are the side pickle slices. They do family sizes as well as catering packages. I buy the meats in 1 lb. packages and freeze them for the kids away at college and they turn out as good... More

So, I love barbecue. I know, I know, they are all similar in prep style, serving formats and general decor. Who cares? I certainly don't! I want good barbecue, served hot with sauce options, in a place that is customer friendly. I found another one! City barbecue is my kind of place. The food was hot, server was patient with... More

City barbecue is very simply some of the best BBQ I've had anywhere in the United States. Every dish they make from the pulled pork to the greens is excellent and I really love their selection of "craft" soda.

My wife and I both enjoy City Barbecue. We had lunch with our son and grandsons recently and had Beef Brisket and on another day enjoyed the Ribs. One of our other favorites is corn pudding. The takeout option also works well if you want to take some home.

I love my BBQ and City Barbeque is the place that delivers my favorite. Their Beef Brisket is the best I've tried and I've sampled brisket from all parts of the country. It is moist, has the right amount of smoky flavor and wonderful bark that makes this the perfect brisket. Don't let me forget their other items. Although not... More

My seven year old son and I always stop at this City Barbeque after visiting the Columbus Zoo. The food is always top notch and the speed of service is excellent. The kids chicken fingers are outstanding and who doesn't like self serve fountain drinks. Wrap up your evening after the zoo and enjoy a GREAT meal!
