All of our meats are smoked on-site at each restaurant, hand rubbed with spices, and take upwards of 18 hours to become pure barbeque perfection. Our employees prepare our sides throughout the day from scratch in the restaurant and give it the same attention they would give to their own family. This is barbeque in its truest form, created by people who are dedicated to doing it right. Enjoy your meal in our restaurant or order online for our very popular party pack meals for take out. Having a special event and don't want to worry about the food? We are famous for our delicious and affordable catering.

Folks,this is the REAL deal. Fine meats and fish smoked with real hickory wood slowly until tender and flavorful. My favorite might be the smoked quarter chicken, but then there are those fine yummy ribs!
The potato salad is so creamy. The baked beans which usually are boring at most restaurants, are sweet, spicey and full of fine BBQ Texas style beef brisket. Even the Texas sausage is superb. Take one of those home for breakfast tomorrow.

Now they have added smoked salmon during Lent and it is better than at any seafood restaurant. I've been there 24 or so times.

I've never been regretful that I chose Collin's City BBQ. You'l love it! -- CO2doc

Were just going to grab a quick bite on our way out of town, but stumbled upon this gem. Great variety (if you like bbq), terrific sides, tasty sauces and a fun atmosphere. Check it out!

We tried to go to City Barbecue when they first opened, but the lines were too long, so we waited and went this past week. You order when you first enter, and pick up your food soon after that. I ordered a chicken leg and thigh, mac and cheese, and gumbo. This came with a huge slice of garlic bread. There is extra bbq sauce around the corner with the drinks. Another diner ordered the half chicken, and took much of it home for lunch the following day. The barbecue taste is wonderful and the servings are large - you shouldn't go away from here hungry! They had a great looking apple cobbler that we just didn't have any room for - next time!

This is a great place to eat! Love the pulled pork and the mini cornbreads. They also do take-out so dinner is a snap...So glad they built one in our area:)

We have ate at many local BBQ restaurants and have ended up returning to city BBQ time after time. They have excellent food cooked fresh everyday. Their cookers are some of the state of the art cooking equipment of the day. The portions are enough to have leftovers for the next day.

BBQ in general is pricy but their prices are reasonable for what you get.

The pulled pork is our favorite. I'm a big ribs guy and I would rate theirs on 6 out of a 10.
