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 of brisket. The only thing I might change is the sauces, I didn't find one that I thought had the perfect flavor, but the original flavor was the best one for me. I will be back!

Went for lunch and had a great meal. Wife got the pulled pork sandwich and I got the pick two meats. My meal was huge and I pulled pork and brisket. Mac and cheese is great. Staff was fast and friendly. Nice beer selection. My only one issue was the BBQ sauces themselves. None of them were great in my opinion but wife liked them. I would have liked to have a more traditional sauce. The great thing is the meat is so good it doesn’t even need sauce. Nice outdoor seating area. So I would definitely go and enjoy great food in a nice place!

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.
