I was pleasantly surprised by this place, as I normally don't do chain BBQ restaurants. I would definitely go back for more of this! I enjoyed their ribs, which were quite tender and very fresh, fast service, friendly workers. I ordered to go and did not have to wait more than a few minutes to have my order bagged and... More

We are accustomed to Four Rivers Smokehouse in Florida. This restaurant would be able to compete no problem. The food was reasonable and very tasty. We enjoyed the Judge's Sampler Platter which had barbecue ribs, chicken, brisket and 2 sides plus garlic bread and cornbread. The restaurant was clean and the staff was very friendly.

Couldn't decide so we shared a city sampler. Brisket was great, practically melted in your mouth. Turkey was also very tender and tasty. Before we got there I didn't realize it was more of a fast food style restaurant, but the food was definitely worth the stop.

Very friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere. The pulled pork and chicken was amazing, very moist and great portion sizes (our family of four had extra to take home). This was our first time visiting City Barbeque and we were not disappointed! If we are ever in Cincinnati again we will definitely make this one of our stops. As a military... More

City Barbeque did a wonderful job catering a party for 60 people. They delivered and set up the food at the promised time. The pulled pork, smoked turkey, baked beans and macaroni and cheese were delicious. We were very pleased with the service, quality and price.

I was excited to see a City Barbeque and dined there twice on my one week stay. I love the pickles and flexibility with the menu. One of the best BBQ places around!

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.

Thank baharker

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)!
