City Barbecue is a great place to get all kinds of barbecue. The pulled pork is simply delicious and probably something that is often overlooked is that the sides are also delicious.

I eat at City Bbq quite often, but always in Beavercreek. This Centerville location is not even close to being as good. I pretty much always have the pulled pork. It lacked flavour. The fries and potato salad were also less tasty.

It was a nice large location, the barbecue was good, and the prices were a tad on the higher side. Decent variety of sides, and everything is ala carte. Clean with indoor and outdoor seating

The barbecue pork is tender, savory and very good. The green beans are homestyle cooked fresh green beans, although I would prefer they allow diners to add their own salt and pepper instead of seasoning in the kitchen.

Lots of options, very fast service, friendly people, great barbecue. The bbq sauce itself is definitely competitive with other local bbq places. They have generous side dish portions, all of which are very tasty. Their corn pudding is soooooo tasty. I recommend getting a variety...More
