Seven for dinner. We all enjoyed the meaty ribs, pulled pork, and chicken. (even the kids loved the ribs) Great sides too. City BBQ locations are one of our favorites.

I go about twice a year because there aren't many BBQ options around, and am always a little unfulfilled. Most recent visit, ribs were meaty and tender, but sausage and brisket seemed ordinary to me.

They arrived later than anticipated per the host. Food was very good. Pork and chicken with different sauces. Sides were great also. Host made the salad or munchies beforehand. Desert was provided by a bakery.

Always a good place for lunch or dinner. Larger portions. Nice to have outside dining option. Was crowded, but we found a table and enjoyed the meal with large family.

A good mix of meats and side items await you at City Bbq. They have several bbq sauces from carolina style (slightly vinegary) to spicy spicy hot!! You will be sure to find something you will like.

We moved to Ohio in February and discovered this place. NOW WE'RE HOOKED! THE sweet tea is perfect..the lemonade is better than Chick-fil-A's lemonade and the brisket is so yummy! Get a full cut beef brisket on Texas toast and you will not be disappointed! We've pretty much TRIED everything from the greens, potato salad, and brisket baked beans and... More
