You have to go pretty far south to find better bbq than City BBQ. A couple years ago I was in Lexington with a group that wanted to go to the best BBQ in their city. To my surprise, it was my hometown favorite, too. Besides the best food, you don't even have to clean your own table, just like... More

I'm not a huge BBQ person, but I love occasionally splurging to eat here. The food is great and the place smells heavenly.

My 2nd visit, the brisket sandwich on Texas toast was delicious this time. Meat wasn't fatty, as was my 1st experience, and had great flavor. My only complaint with my meal this time is the same as the last, my sides and the sauces are just too salty for my taste. I got baked beans and fries, both loaded with... More

Had the pleasure of eating dinner at City Barbeque the other night. It's an unassuming looking restaurant, just what you would expect from a casual BBQ restaurant. I would say the decor is indoor country fair. I liked it! The menus are written/painted on chalk boards which keeps that country feel. The menu is BBQ sandwiches. and sides. I got... More

I usually go here for lunch on my own and it never disappoints. I always get the smoked sausage, it's among the best I've ever had.

Did I hit here on a bad day? Or is this a sign of things to come. First let me say in the Columbus area this is the place for Bbq. I've visited several of the locations and had great food. Even with this low rating for this visit, you should give it a shot as I hoping it was... More

Walk in and place your order at the cash register. Move on down the counter and wait for your order. The people are friendly and fun to joke around with while waiting for your order. Has decent lunch menu. A little more than your traditional fast food place. Love their pulled pork sandwich, italian green beans with bacon & onions,... More
