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)!

Great tasting BBQ. Order at the counter and take it to your table. Three different sauces at your table. All were extremely good. I even mixed a few. The brisket was delicious. Beer is available too. Good place to eat when in the area.

We had a pulled pork special (coleslaw on it) and a pulled pork sandwich. It had a little different smoked flavor and different bbq sauce. The sandwiches were good but not outstanding. However, the potato salad was really good, as were the beans. Two sides came with the special, otherwise the sides were a little pricey for the serving size.... More

We found out about the City BBQ in our travels visiting Columbus, OH. Now we always stop & take BBQ home when we are traveling by Columbus because one of the restaurants is very close to the Polaris exit off of I-71. The brisket is to die for!!!!!! My husband loves the pork. We have tried many of the sides... More

Day 1 @ 1700. Tuesday ribs are 40% off. Very worth it. Ribs are so tender you have to eat the meat with your fingers because the meat falls completely and cleanly off the bone. Good smoked flavor and very lean. Possibly best I've ever had. Mac and cheese - either they have managed to make made from scratch M&C... More

We travel to this area several times a year. I always make a point to stop here for lunch at least once. Very good brisket. It get very busy at lunch, so be prepared. It could take up to 15 minutes to get through line and your food. I've never sat there and eaten, only take-out. They also offer good... More
