The food is outstanding from the beef brisket to the chicken and pulled pork. all of the sides are well prepared and very flavorful. I have visited many of their locations in other cities, as they have grown, and find them to be of like quality. several clients have enjoyed their stile of prepared dishes.

Reminds me of the authentic atmosphere of generations old K.C. BBQ places I grew up with. The food is really good, too!

We visited this City BBQ location while visiting in the area. We've eaten at several City BBQs in other locations. Overall, this experience was the tasty, consistent BBQ we've come to love at City BBQ. We spent a few years living in Texas and enjoying that local BBQ and sorely missed the BBQ when we came back to Ohio. City... More

We were bummed that they were out of some items but we would still return. Big portions at a fair price, fast service, enjoyed the food and different BBQ sauces. Casual: seat yourself after ordering in line and grabbing your own utensils. (Had a problem with 1 thing but manager took good care of us and did her best to... More

OK BBQ. Nothing fancy and not much atmosphere, but good sandwiches and sauce. A little on the expensive side for sandwiches. El Chompo bites again!

I think this place is looked over because of its simple laid back atmosphere. The other BBQ restaurants in Toledo feel like weekend dinner date night places with waiters and waitresses and that's not what bbq should be. This place nailed how we do bbq in Texas. The restaurant is full of Texas bbq restaurant photos and souvenirs because the... More

The BBQ platter is the best value here. You get a sampling of all of their BBQ dishes (brisket, chicken, & ribs). They have an extensive selection of individual BBQ dishes also. Very good!!

Normally I am a huge fan of City BBQ, but this location is far below the standards I have come to expect. The location was out of ribs, brisket and pork. When my wife ordered a large salad, she was given a small size (with the wrong dressing), charged for the larger and was argued with about what she ordered... More

We asked for sandwiches they charged us for meals and added sides. The food was poor quality and the cost was way too high. This place has gone down hill a lot.

My family and I have been here several times now and everytime we are blown away. The smell alone when you open the door is enough to make my mouth water. The food is awesome, I lived in Memphis for 5 years and I have had A LOT of bbq and this is right up there with some of the... More
