Every time I get to this area for work I eat here. Everything is delicious! Have a hard time deciding. So when in town like this week I ate here 3 out of 4 days. Great variety of tasty meats and nice selection of sauces. Can't go wrong with the fresh cut fries, and my favorite side is the corn... More

We ordered the family meal with pork bbq and everything was great. Our daughter wanted mac n cheese and we thought it could of been a little better but one of the workers brought us a free Coleslaw after not finding any on the toppings bar. Also we had to wait a few extra minutes on fries so they threw... More

Excellent pulled pork and ribs. The sides are wonderful. Green beans are the best served anywhere. The corn pudding is the bomb. Mac and Cheese too runny for my taste. All the meats have a great smoked flavor, with a choice of 3 or more sauces

The ribs are tender and the Sausage were big and juicy. I just stopped there again to take some on the plane with us. The sauce is Ok.

Took my son for a quick dinner before heading to a baseball game. Saw the Smoked brisket taqos as a new option on the menu. You get three and they are the bomb!!!! Absolutely fantastic. As a side note, the rewards on my app were not working properly. The staff behind the counter was fantastic in resolving the glitch...a credit... More

Visited for lunch with three co-workers... Order at the counter. Wait for your order to be prepared. Get your beverage and pickle slices. Find a seat. Eat. Pretty simple. They run a lunch special with a smaller sandwich and two normal sides - beverage is extra. IMHO they should down-size the sides to match the sandwich. I got the pulled... More

We eat here on occasion and always enjoy the food. It is well prepared and you have a variety of tasty sauces to try. The service is pretty quick for a barbeque place. Last night I chose a large salad with smoked turkey. It had a nice mix of greens and other flavorful toppings. The others got the meats and... More

In Gahanna for the day and we wanted to try a place to eat that we have never been to. Casual setting, family friendly, cool atmosphere, order at the walk up counter. Modest price, and quick service. The best part of our meal was the hush puppies and hand cut french fries. We ordered the City Sampler, the turkey was... More

Jordan F, Guest Relations Manager at City Barbeque, responded to this review

Hello and thank you for your review! We are definitely disappointed that your meat was dry. We strive to serve the best barbecue in town, and it sounds like we missed the mark on this visit. Would you mind emailing me at jordan@citybbq.com? I'd love to make it up to you! More

Took my father who is from Virginia last month. We both enjoyed our meals, especially the smoked sausage....wow! The sides were out of this world - hush puppies and vinegar cucumbers. One of my favorites places to take out of town guests. You won't be disappointed.
