I usually go here for lunch on my own and it never disappoints. I always get the smoked sausage, it's among the best I've ever had.

Did I hit here on a bad day? Or is this a sign of things to come. First let me say in the Columbus area this is the place for Bbq. I've visited several of the locations and had great food. Even with this low rating for this visit, you should give it a shot as I hoping it was... More

Walk in and place your order at the cash register. Move on down the counter and wait for your order. The people are friendly and fun to joke around with while waiting for your order. Has decent lunch menu. A little more than your traditional fast food place. Love their pulled pork sandwich, italian green beans with bacon & onions,... More

Food is good. Really like the mustard BBQ sauce. Great place to go for quick meal that is fairly priced. Great for take out party events.

Just a fair experience. Most all the sides that are listen on their website for gluten free they only have seasonally. So apparently fruit is only when seasonally they decide to carry it. Not a really good day for them when I went. The meat was tough and lacked flavor, too burnt. Go somewhere else if you have the choice.

Live in Pittsburgh but travel to Columbus monthly. Tripped on this through trip advisor. WIN! First the tasty aroma hit us the minute we opened our car door! We felt certain we would not be disappointed. City Sampler, plus some fries more than fed me, my husband and two hungry teenagers. Ribs and chicken were moist and tender. Baked beans... More

This is the way smoked meat is suppose to be prepared. My Grannie said, "If I want my food dirty, I'll throw it on the ground!" But Grandma never tasted City Barbeque. They have numerous locations around Central Ohio (and even foreign countries like Kentucky, Nothing Carolina and exotic Indiana) BUT their particular recipe is meticulously prepared every time and...
