They arrived later than anticipated per the host. Food was very good. Pork and chicken with different sauces. Sides were great also. Host made the salad or munchies beforehand. Desert was provided by a bakery.

Always a good place for lunch or dinner. Larger portions. Nice to have outside dining option. Was crowded, but we found a table and enjoyed the meal with large family.

A good mix of meats and side items await you at City Bbq. They have several bbq sauces from carolina style (slightly vinegary) to spicy spicy hot!! You will be sure to find something you will like.

Get a full cut beef brisket on Texas toast and you will not be disappointed! We've pretty much TRIED everything from the greens, potato salad, and brisket baked beans and... More

Had the sampler platter. Vinegar slaw and potato salad sides. Platter had brisket, pulled pork and turkey. Turkey was a little dry but otherwise very good.
