I had the pulled pork sandwich and it was spot on, tender, great flavor and little fat. The sides were amazing, I had the baked beans and the sweet potatoes. The beans were close to or as good as I've ever had, with huge chunks...More

We used to always go to Columbus for great BBQ and proffered Smokey Bones, but since this is closer we have become very fond of city BBQ. It always seems to hit the spot when we need that BBQ fix.

Pulled pork can frequently be very fatty. But this was very lean. It was also incredibly tender, with a smoky flavor. But it is dry, so you will need to add one (or more) of their many tasty sauces. The corn pudding was also good...More

Small place, was hoping for a "find". The food was just ok. The fries way under cooked and the pulled rib sandwich was tasty but super greasy. Found hunks of bone, which surprised me. Maybe just bad luck. Won't be back.
