It smelled so good on the outside, we wen in and ordered pulled pork and turkey sandwich. It came to 18 bucks including fries. The sandwiches were plain and the fries were ok. Not worth the money at all..Disappointed.

Even though you can eat in we opted to take food home. Both my husband and I had pulled pork, vinegar slaw and baked beans. It was all very yummy. The service was quick. The staff was friendly. It was a good experience and we...More

I've never had anything which wasn't good. The price is a little high, in my opinion. I wish they were cheaper on their sides - that would help. But, I keep returning.

For my first visit to Kentucky I was looking forward to having good Barbecue. Unfortunately I found both the brisket and ribs to be dry and the sauces unremarkable

Delicious, moist, beautiful smoke ring, above average sauces, and decent service. Their brisket and pork was moist and delicious. This place is a sample of how good Kentucky BBQ can taste. Go for a sample of many meats, because they have everything under the sun....More

Very expensive, $22.99 for a slab of ribs then you pay extra for sides. Wanna beer, by the bottle therefore for 2 12 ounce you'd pay more than you would a six pack. Not recommended unless your rich. (Bryan)

Oh no! Thanks for the great review but we are so sorry to hear that the brisket wasn't up to par the second time around. Would you mind emailing me at jordan@citybbq.com? I'd love to make it up to you!

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)!
