My boyfriend suggested that I try the bbq. I must admit that it was wonderful. The bbq beef platter, shredded beef, was awesome and I got the bbq chicken for my furbabies. The chicken was shredded and had a wonderful smoke taste. The furbabies must have enjoyed it because they ate all of it.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch and we split the city sampler, Nice portions of Beef brisket, pulled pork, sausage, turkey, 2 sides and Texas toast. Was definitely a filling lunch for the two of us. Just none of it was anything special, the brisket and pulled pork was dry. The sausage had a decent tasted but the... More

If you like smoked brisket, pulled pork, chicken, or beef or tasty ribs...THIS is the place. Add some bottled pop (Big Red) or homemade lemonade, or killer iced tea. Try the tasty sides like green beans (with a little smoked ham), a creamy potatoe salad or the zippy BAKED BEANS (OH, YEAH!), or those bread and butter pickles. Maybe you'd... More

The best and only beef brisket I have enjoyed to date. The portions are incredible for the price-point.

We had a great barbecue dinner at City Barbecue. I loved the chicken, it was tender and a great barbecue flavor. My only criticism is that the macaroni and cheese was not hot and the green beans were too mushy. Liked the hush puppies.

Maybe it's not fair to give an average rating to a place I've only eaten at once; then again, the first impression often makes a lasting one. To be fair, I ordered pick up. It's entirely possible that if I'd eaten in, I would have found their food to be fantastic. When I do eat in, I'll let you know!... More

If you like barbeque, this is a good place to go and I think it is probably in the top 3 for barbeque in the city. The meat is good. However, I think they have raised their prices and you definitely get less for paying more. The cashiers are a bit surley but the people loading the food at the... More

This place is a lot like home, from walking in the door, you are recognized immediately to place your order, the cashier is knowledgeable about the menu. Then you pick up your food, it's nice and hot. Nice cold beverage is refreshing, plenty seating options, overall this is a place you want to go. Lots of options on how seasoned... More

More Cowbell was very yummy! Corn pudding is awesome, kinda like corn casserole. Wish I could've had the fried pickles but they were not offered as a side.

Thank Maggie S

The idea for City Barbeque was born as an invitation to all the people in the city to enjoy great barbeque- America's food.
Our award-winning barbeque is made with only the highest quality meats and served with our signature sauces on the side. Huge smokers are loaded daily to guarantee the very best hickory smoked, juicy, tender meat anywhere.

So if an authentic barbeque experience is what you're after, look no further. Small groups of folks like us still believe in honoring quality, generations of tradition and true service. Whether you call it barbecue, Bar-B-Que, BBQ, or barbeque - we've got what you are looking for!
Our menu boasts premium smoked meats such as Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, All Natural Turkey Breast, Texas Smoked Sausage, St. Louis-Style Ribs, All Natural Chicken. Pair any smoked meat with our delicious City Sides for a true 'que meal! City Sides include baked beans with brisket, mac & cheese, corn pudding, green beans with bacon, fresh-cut fries, mixed greens with pork, potato salad, hand dipped hush puppies, side salad, gumbo and corn bread. Finish it off with one of our made-from-scratch desserts: peach cobbler, triple chocolate cake and banana pudding.

We proudly dedicate our lives to the pursuit of barbeque and happiness (yes, in that order)!
