I tried to order online and the website wouldn't work. I called the order in and it wasn't there. Still waiting 20 minutes later.

Love City Barbecue! I rarely eat at the restaurant but love to use them to feed hungry soccer players at tournaments and cater my home parties. The brisket is amazing along with the pulled chicken. You can never go wrong with the pulled pork. Their sides are top notch! Green beans with bacon and sweet vinegar slaw are my favorites.... More

Solid barbecue, but not outstanding. I had the brisket. It had a good bark and smoke flavor. Was tender but not the most tender I have ever had. Solid not spectacular. The sauces were all too sweet for me.

Its easy to order something here to split. The meats are great, and the sides are all right too. They have several different sauces you can try for fun as well.

I was traveling alone on a dreary mid-January business trip in Indy - as my son does not care for BBQ - when out looking for some dinner, I thought I might as well indulge in a barbecue feast since I was dining solo... in the drizzly grey dusk on Rangeland Rd - the bright welcoming lights of the City...

Craving Midwest BBQ I wasn't disappointed. We had ribs and pulled pork- so meaty and juicy, remarkably not greasy! Ribs were my favorite. Terrific friendly service, we did takeout but I'd love to come back and sit down. Somehow we missed the three sauce choices and when we got home had to out our own bottled sauce on. But still...

We enjoyed going with my brothers family from Carmel. All the smoked meat was good and the portions were large. The potato salad was delicious! They had the best Southern Sweet Tea of our trip. We had been before and will go again!

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)!
