Had our normal sort of time there(good). The family and one of our kid's friends were with us (our kids are adults and so was the friend). Just what we expected - good food, a nice time. We were able to sit a while and talk - it's not too noisy there. I am in their rewards program, and they... More

A-OK says it all: It's okay and nothing more. People seem to crave the City BBQ, I really don't know why. It seems to me it's the Hot Chicken Takeover of BBQ in Columbus. The pulled pork always seems dry, no matter what location we visit. The brisket is a little better but not by much.The St. Louie cut ribs... More

I get carry out of ribs, brisket and sides monthly. Baked beans are the best I've found. Interesting choice of sodas.

This by far is the best City Barbeque location (600 S. State St, Westerville, OH). I really appreciate the outstanding service I receive when ordering my food. I also appreciate that the staff remember me every time I visit this location, they are always friendly and helpful. Other City Barbeque locations should take lessons from the 600 S. State St,...

I've been coming to City Barbeque since they first opened down on Cleveland Ave just south of I-270. I was really happy when they moved to this location in the heart of Westerville. This is a place where you order at the counter and wait for your order to be ready. Then you find a table, get your drinks, silverware,... More

City BBQ is a consistent quality place to eat. It has something for everyone but the pork BBQ is outstanding with excellent sides to choose from. You order at the counter and they bring the food and drink to you in a timely fashion. Try the banana pudding. So good.

I am picky when it comes to BBQ because I grew up in Memphis. The BBQ here is just as good if not better. I loved the brisket and the pulled pork. I ordered a salad with ranch dressing and mixed the BBQ sauce right into the ranch. Great food and place to hang out with friends.

Great Barbeque, pulled pork, sausage, beef brisket are all very good. They have several sides to choose from at very reasonable prices. The inside was very clean and staff are very friendly. We enjoyed our lunch.

Just a great little b-b-q place. The food is excellent and while it's not the sit down take your order type place, once your settled its very easy to relax and enjoy the food while you listen to the blues that play in the background.
