I like BBQ but not here-the food was surprisingly bad. Ribs were cold, fatty and tough. They forgot part of my to-go order. Sides we're mediocre at best. Staff was not friendly. I'll never be back. Next time I'll go to Montgomery Inn or Eli's.

One of the local Cincinnati bar-b-que chains that serves the to-be-expected staples of beef, ribs, sausage and chicken along with a range of sides. My preference is the beef brisket, which is prepared as well as any around, perhaps better than most. The chicken and...More

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!
