REVIEWS OF City Barbeque IN Indiana

Michael Dilligaf

Stopped the lunch special, only reason I went. Food was just OK.

Anthony Lillig

Good food, okay service

Alan Schultz - Realtor

Always clean, tasty and relaxing! A great place to get anything barbeque for sure! Located in an easy-to-get-to shopping center and the staff is always friendly and helpful, too! I love the barbequed pulled pork or pulled chicken - plus you can add your own favorite barbeque sauce as you please! Highly Recommend!

Detroit 11

It's ok. Don't really love the bbq. Also pricey.

lynnette johnson

So I went to the restaurant on veteran's day for the special. Apparently so did some other veterans and they sold out of a few items. The young man was so apologic for beening sold out. I told him no worries just give me another side. He gave the the sweet potato casserole I believe and it was delicious. Thank you for serving the public with smile even though we always smile back. Great experience....

Kevin Tsoi

Disappointing overall. Had ribs and brisket, and both lacked any flavor. No smokiness, no spices, just plain overall. If you're looking for super tender, won't be getting that either. Had the cornbread and the Mac and cheese, which again weren't very flavorful. Their draw seems to be a large array of sauce that range from coyingly sweet to heat with no flavor. I will say that they were fast and the service was good. I'd recommend finding somewhere else for BBQ though if you're looking for taste.

Chip Schlemmer

Love city BBQ. For a chain this place is great.


They were out of an item for delivery and didn’t bother to tell me until I arrived at the store. The person I ordered for was extremely upset with me for not letting them know, and the store was upset that the order was cancelled. When I advised the store that they could have prevented the issue with better communication, I didn’t even get an apology. The woman working to ToGo counter just gave me a dirty look. Just Wow.

Teresa Hultz

The food is wonderful. My favorite is the pulled chicken. The baked beans are outstanding. Chocolate cake is heavenly. The staff has always been great. I am a regular and am always happy. If you download their app, you get freebies like desert and money off. Good food, good deals. Win-win.

Adam Gaha

The food is super yummy; the service is excellent; and I recommend the potato salad.

Brigitte Frost

You're treated like part of the family. The owner came out and checked on us and brought us more sauce. The food was wonderful and the salad was so fresh!

bruce Sepielli

It was good. The meats were lean and good portion. The sauce options are nice as well

Kristopher Good

This place never disappoints. Always a fun staff, clean store & great food. I've never ventured outside of pulled pork, sweet bbq sauce, corn pudding, fries and half n half tea.So I can't really speak for the whole menu. If I visit City BBQ, it is for those menu items.

Justin Conley

Good, but a tad expensive. Mac & cheese is excellent.

Jeff Chou

This is usually my go-to venue when I'm craving some good BBQ. Their beef brisket and pulled pork are well balanced in tenderness and flavor. In addition, they have a variety of sauces that are each excellent in their own way.

Michael Kemp

In a word, Incredible. If you're a veteran, please ask for the discount *

Sean Huddleston

I live near this location so it is very convenient. However, they CONSTANTLY sell out of ribs. 4 of the 6 times I have attempted to go there or order for pick up, they are out of their primary menu item. It would seem that they would know to stock up based on their sales, but this is not the case for this location. I'm done with them.

Nick O'Brien

Good BBQ, both the pulled pork and the half chicken. The sides are good as well, and wait times are not bad. The food is rather expensive compared to similar places, but the quality is apparent.

David Johnson

Burnt ends. Yum. Corn pudding. To die for. I wish I could get that recipe. So so good.

Myrna Cantu

Always excellent food and great service

Logan Redmond

Food was good and even though the employees were very busy they were friendly and quick.

Jeremiah Goddard

I have been coming to this location since it was first opened a few years ago. This specific experience was not good, and the last few have not been good. The chicken was slimy and the sides were not warm. I love City BBQ but something has shifted at this location and not for the better

Steve Becker

Spoke with Cynthia Williams prior to making a big order for a party. She was extremely helpful deciding on how much of each item to order. She made it easy to look like a pro at our event with utensils and warmers.

rick taylor

Good stuff!

R Rod

Best bbq I've find in indiana so far. Food is flavorful. Juicy. And fall off the bone good

Tammie Pierson

Food was very good

Muted Xpressions

I think this place is trash! The barbecue is mediocre and the prices are ridiculous! Thank the heavens for sauce options because the meat does not stand on its own!

Bill Esler

Fantastic place to eat. Great barbecue! Very friendly customer service. Would definitely recommend. Also the side dishes are awesome as well.

Angela Avers

The pulled pork was great. The cornbread was a bit dry. The mac&cheese, disappointing. The fries were decent

Randy Gardiner

You need to open one of these in Fort Wayne Indiana

jim b

Outstanding food. This us definately a must stop place.

Justin Jordan

This is my first time in Indiana and I was told by business associates that City Barbeque was the place to try while I'm here for work . I walked in not knowing what to expect and I was instantly greeted by Jeff. This gentleman here didn't hold back answered all my questions made outstanding suggestions! The food here is phenomenal! Also got lucky enough to find out it's rib night. Overall amazing place and when I'm back definitely making ankthan stop! Hope a City Barbeque opens up in Pennsylvania!

The TechGeek

Always great BBQ and service. Brisket and hush puppies are my favorite

David Kaczur

Food was great and excellent service

Ted Chase

Very good

artez Wilson

I Love Everything But The Greens

Scott Morris

Often busy but worth the wait, City Barbecue is the place in Carmel. Amazing brisket, lip-smacking pulled pork, smoked sausage, and chicken, with ribs and every essential side. Try the new citrus slaw. You won't be disappointed.

Karin Barkhurst

This is my go to place for Barbeque!! No one does it better!! The hushpuppies are my favorite side. The pulled pork is incredible! The bark and smoke ring... This is the Only bbq place I have been to where sauce is not needed at all. Try the swine wine its amazing.

Cassie Hull

The food is so good here. The family meal is a good deal. Employees are friendly and helpful. Service can be slow when they are busy but otherwise a great place.

Shauna L. Kenyon

Meat was tasty, but almost everything was too salty. Give a pass to the cornbread and sides. Good sauces. Great service.

Peter Coburn

Wow on a plate, you gotta' try the potato salad... I have recurring dreams about it, everything was outstanding!

Scott Gerding

Great food, clean restaurant and staff that were customer focused. A little expensive ($50/ for two at lunch) but I'll go back again.


Very good. We enjoyed everything. The restrooms were very clean too.

Brittney Berry

Always have a great experience here. Hands down the best location in the state.

Frederic Fransen

Had the brisket (again). Too good to try anything else!

Aisha Cargile

Prices are a little high for what you get but the brisket is the truth. Worth doing on occasion but too expensive to be a regular thing.

William Johnson

I came in later in the evening and they doubled my rib order for free! The food and service is always great here.

Baana Veen

Best barbeque! Judge sampler was fantastic

Luis Rodriguez

HOLY, SMOKES...brisket and pork sandwich. Very good prices and very delicious

Dennis Hyatt

One of the best in Indy.

Jason Dhalle

Food is good but the baked beans leaked all over the inside of the bag. Not cool.

Phoenix Badua

BBQ is fine. It taste as Corporate as BBQ can taste. It's passable but there is no passion or heart put into any of these dishes. And for the price they ask, the quality is just not there. For the same price and long wait time, you could go to Big Hoffa's and get a BBQ meal that is great, for cheaper, and it taste so much better.

Sam Harb

Best bbq in town

Lauren Milton

Very tasty food with a good selection of barbeque sauce. The staff is always nice and helpful.

Jim Neese

Great barbeque.Tuesday's got a great Rib day.

Jim Dantin

Best BBQ around. Competition quality in a chain. Brisket is better than what we usually get at BBQ competitions (we are judges). The selection and quality of side dishes makes this our go to place.

Kevin L Nacke Jr

Great food and staff, we wished we lived closer

Marcus Dallas

Excellent food and great service

David Bauer

Great fast food barbeque. I have only had the brisket, but the rest of the menu looks just as delicious. A number of sauces are available, so you should find something to your liking. Make sure to save room for the awesome banana pudding!

Bill McAfee

Pulled pork is always a solid choice. Steady business, but lines move quickly

Shelbiisaurus Dude

I absolutely loved everything. I got the pick 2 with ribs and pulled pork. My sides were sweet potato casserole, corn pudding, and Brunswick Stew

Linda Keck

Great Barbecue sauces

Airrione Buckingham

Wonderful experience! The staff and food was perfect!

Megen Osborn

The smoked salmon is incredible! Also had the superfood slaw and I really hope that stays on the menu. Always have a good experience here. The food is yummy, it actually smells like smoke inside (like a real bbq place should) and the employees are always friendly.

Christopher Smith

This place has the best brisket at the moment. Also I enjoy the nehi peach bottles as they give me nostalgia. Angie kavanaugh goes above and beyond when she is working so if you see a girl with blue hair just know it'll be good.

Leanne Stone

The meat is good, the green beans were too salty and the collard greens were too bitter.

Deanna Danford

Everyone here is always so friendly! We typically order takeout, and it is usually ready in under 10 minutes which is unheard of. If for some reason it isn't quite ready when you get there, the staff works pretty hard at keeping you happy by offering you a free beverage while you wait. The best thing on their menu is the side of corn pudding. We will actually order this sometimes by itself and pick it up to go with dinner we have cooked at home. If it is the Fall season, the Brunswick stew is available and it is quite possibly the best tasting thing I have ever had in my life. I'm counting down the days until it is available again! The atmosphere is very laid back, and of course it smells heavenly in there just like any BBQ joint. Highly recommend City Barbeque for an alternative to fast food takeout in the Carmel area.

Ashley Abednego

Good foods nice staff

Ashley Trowbridge

Not bad BBQ for middle of Indiana. Despite the quick serve style approach, it was a little slow. I think they do a hefty carryout business, and that maybe slowed things down a bit for our in-restaurant order. I like that they offer up ribs on a per-rib basis, which is nice if you want just a little bit. BBQ sauces themselves were a little odd...stick to the basics IMO!

Matt Eichholtz

Good fast bbq, for a chain it is a top place to go

Tami Pahs

Pretty darn good barbeque

Nathan Miller

I am currently hospitalized, and specifically ordered food from here (through a delivery service) to get hush puppies. Unfortunately, they they were out, but I couldn't cancel my order. They offered substitutes, but I only placed an order because I wanted the hush puppies. So I paid for food I didn't even want, because they were out of a staple item that I did want. Extremely disappointed at paying for food I didn't want.

Tyler Cornelius

Very clean! Fast and friendly staff!! Love City Barbecue!

Tim Cary-Smith

Good stuff not bad prices..

Karen Otis

Great quality for every dish...service exceptional. Pork sandwich, collards are comfort food Supreme

Jon Hand

Brisket was tender and juicy .

Ashley V

Had the brisket and it was amazing. Got every single barbercue sauce to try - they're all good!! Restaurant was quiet and clean at lunch time. Staff were incredibly kind and enthusiastic. Would definitely go back!!

Tasey Wright

Love going here!! Nick is always so friendly!!!! He is always attentive and remembers my sides!!!

Kevin Large

Quite an interesting place. My first time there. Had the chicken leg quarter served with Texas toast-style garlic bread. More choices of BBQ sauces than I have ever seen! Tasty!

Jerry Gephart

Awesome food, great service. While there a server came by the table and took our trash. This was greatly appreciated. due to my arm ia in a sling. Loved the music.

Zachary Webster

Pretty good BBQ with some good options for sauces. The meat is sometimes dry depending on what you get, but the sides are good. The restaurant floor is usually a little dirty with sticky floors.

Seth Warrick

I always love coming here. The meat is always really good and the service couldn't be nicer.

Jesse Cole

Delicious quick and easy. Staff is very friendly.

Melissa Stevens

Very good food, catered to our needs with our pup. Friendly service

Shawn and Melinda Ambrose

Great tender and tasty barbecue meat several types served quickly. The Texas toast and cornbread served with it were not as good. The barbecue beans were good. The meat was awesome!

Robert Heider

City Barbeque never disappoints! The beef brisket was smoked to perfection and so tender. The gumbo was perfectly seasoned and a perfect compliment to the brisket. It was a full house and only happy faces all around. Thanks to the friendly staff for a pleasant, delicious experience. We'll be back soon.

Celinda Cochran

Always the BEST!

Don Dyck

Quality bbq every time I visit.

Donna Lopez

All I can say is it's delish

Allison Scarpitti

Clean dining area, tasty food. I recommend the Mac and cheese

sean rosenfeld

I love this food. I eat there whenever I can and the staff is amazing. Nick is great. On my latest trip he took my order five minutes before closing and was very gracious when I grabbed my order and someone else's upon arrival.

Kari Lawrence

Wonderful food and service!! First time there, but will go again!

Anthony Whitaker

Catered a party and everyone complimented on the quality of the food. The brisket seemed to be the biggest hit. We will definitely go back.

Mike Ellis

Overpriced and not very good. Ordered the brisket and got a brisket sandwich. The meat was dry and hard the Mac and cheese was horrible although the potato salad was at least palatable. If you want good barbecue visit squealers.

MichaelJ May

As always great food and a nice selection of choices, decent pricing and friendly staff. A must go place.

Blaze Kabauva

Decent BBQ but is available very quick. Nice and convenient with friendly staff.

bigkid forever

The barbecue here is one of my favorites ,City barbecue is one of the few barbecue franchise 's I will go to if I am craving barbecue. They have a great gumbo bowl for $5 , very savory ,not too thick or runny but just right . I like how this place has a variety of sauces to choose from, I thought I had a favorite but I put pepper in all of them and like them all the same. I found that i order their smoked turkey more than I do than the other meats they offer . The smoked turkey is tender ,juicy and if it was served on a bone it would fall right off. The service is great , employees are patient and friendly with good suggestions if you aren't sure what to order. Also try the desserts they are worth the cheat for the sweetness and home-made taste! .

Sheila Bonham

One of my most favorite places to go I love their food their pork barbecue unbelievable the brisket is great the sausage is great, they're homemade potato salad is to die for the corn cake or corn pudding yum yum I give it a ten thumbs up

Lori Senften

Ask for Kirsten! Hands down one of the most attentive, sweet, and fun servers!

Heather Haynes

The brisket and pulled pork were amazing. The Mac n Cheese looked amazing, but did not taste amazing. It was very bland and flavorless. They were out of hush puppies. Staff was very pleasant! Overall, great visit!


Love this place. Always need more cow bell.

Deb Blake

We went on a Tuesday night for the 40% off ribs. They were out of the RIBS by 7:45pm. HOWEVER, and this is important, they went above and beyond to make sure the brisket was lean and fresh from the smoker, the fries were beyond generous and gave us an up grade on our drinks.

Tonya Tilson

Meats smoked for hours if not days. Great flavor.

Bruce Mair

Consistently good food.

Jason Kline

I always have a good experience their. Owner are awesome if there working they will give you a history of the comm which is awesome.

Cory Parsons

Pork was okay needed a little bit more lean. Sauces were sweet sauces which is good for most but I prefer some that a vinegar based. Service was really good and went overboard for the kids. Also a few more choices of sides would be good. Dessert is good though and very tasty.

Martha Adams

Nice to be able to share a meal.

Keeley Gerhold

The food was delicious and great portions for the price.

Nicole Hoopengarner

Great date place

Paul Williams

Tried the pork sandwich this time and loved it even more than the brisket! With a side of hushpuppies, you really get a lot. My coworker got the brisket chili and superfood slaw and sId they were a great surprise. The atmosphere is alway low key and friendly there whether your picking up or putting down. I've never had room for the deserts but they really seem to be a big hit with my coworkers. I would definitely recommend checking the place out if you are in the mood for some serious comfort food!

Linda Gallardo

Food Delicious!!!! and on Time! Friendly People ♡

John Day

Best barbeque this side of Houston.

Cade Milburn

Food was very good bathroom was clean

Ryan Kesler

I have to give them credit: it's actually really good barbecue. Stereotypically chain barbeque isn't great, but City Barbecue does it right! I'm kind of a snob when it comes to brisket, but they do it right. The sides are great, nothing to complain about! Also, their catering is excellent!

Jaime Neibarger

Very good BBQ, I recommend the sampler dish

Joe Romero

One of the best barbecue places I've ever been to . Smokey and juicy and perfectly seasoned . Their sauce selection is so diverse that anyone could find a barbecue sauce for them . If you ever thought of going here I think you should do your self a favor and enjoy some amazingly barbecue.

Lisa Crandall

Delicious. The bourbon bbq sauce is awesome.

Andrew Okerson

The best barbeque around. Hands down.

Matthew Latty

The "More Cowbell Sandwich" is fantastic. Great sides, nice staff. Excellent condiment and bbq station

Trevor Bergman

The food was delicious as usual but came out very slowly. It looked as though they were a little understaffed. Once we got to the dining room the cleanliness of the tables was less than optimal and my wife and I had to keep swatting away annoying flies from landing in our food. We enjoy coming to this location but this visit was just a little off the mark.

Aimee Hudson

I finally tried City Barbeque and I loved it! We tried brisket and chicken, macaroni and cheese, baked beans and gumbo. It was delicious and service was prompt.

Trevor Corey

Fantastic BBQ. Descent portions, great combos, and a choice of many amazing sauces. Love this place, the food , and the service.

Nicole Beverly

Great food, clean and fast service!

Tony Bilek

We ate lunch here on a Saturday and it was great. I got the three meat sampler. Brisket pulled pork and turkey. Try the bourbon BBQ sauce. It was my favorite. The collard greens and hush puppies were fantastic.

Jain Waldrip

Their barbecue is well made, and they offer a great selection of their own sauces. You can also get your barbecue selection served "naked" (on a plate, no bun) if that's what you're accustomed to.

Josh Helderbrand

City BBQ is always great. Have never had a bad experience at any of them. The parking lot is tight and can be difficult to find parking during lunch here would be the only gripe.

Ed Staubach

Delicious BBQ. A good variety of sides as well.

Gary Barth

Great place to eat.

Jason Hagen

Great lunch experience! Food was excellent, fast service and clean dining area. I'll be back!

Lisa Hood

Wonderful food, courteous staff

D. Ferguson

BBQ done well, ribs are always cooked really well. I personally not the biggest fan of baked beans they offer, to much bbq and runny. I go to City BBQ mainly for the meats, not so much the sides. They do have good side salads, sweet potato casserole (seasonal), and few other sides are not bad. Garlic Toast is pretty good, especially if get extra butter. Also enjoy the Sweet Tea they offer, refreshing and cold !!! Brisket, ribs, pulled pork and Turkey are all very enjoyable.

Russell Byrd

Enjoyed the smoked turkey, great spicy sauce, sides were good. Tried a few, slaw was different from the usual bbq places, liked the flavor of this one. Staff was very engaged, helpful and pleasant.

Andrew Utter

City barabeque is amazing!!! Make it a point to go there every time I’m in town and I love it! Staff is always friendly, and the bourbon bbq sauce is bomb! Their reward program is very generous, as are their employees. Eat here, you won’t regret it!

Jason Pearce

Food is good, but their cleanliness has gone downhill. Both plates and silverware were gross and had leftovers from prior uses. If they better cleaned their utensils, they’d be four stars.

Tim Kershner

Excellent fast food barbecue. Had the ribs and collard greens and both were awesome. The service was quick and polite.

Melissa Segner

Service was fantastic and the food was very delicious! Will definitely go back! Highly recommended!

Judy Bauerle

Food was very good. They were busy but we still had good service.

Michael Eisenhut

Middle of the road BBQ. Not awful, nowhere near great. Stay away from the mac and cheese, it has about as much flavor as a saltine cracker minus the salt. Seriously, I've had better vegan Mac and cheese... Price per meal is reasonable although flavor per dollar isn't as good as North End Barbecue (in Nora) only ten minutes away. If you've got an extra $2 to spend on the meal, go to North End and the food will be twice as good.

Justin B

Great food i eat it everyday almost

Tom Conley

Dangerously slippery floor, not wet just slick. Food only fair. Pulled pork was flat tasting, detected hardly any smoke. Texture was rether stringy and rather dry. Flavor should come from the meat not just the BBQ sauce. Overall, overpriced and under-flavored.

Helene Albano

Great food. Friendly service!

Amber Morgerson

By far the best BBQ place I've had since we moved back to Indiana! The food was delicious, the portions were huge and the price was surprisingly low! I was able to feed my entire family for under $40 AND we had to take some home! We will definitely be back!!!

Alan Schultz

The people there were very pleasant. The food was made piping hot and just right. A little bit pricier than some other places that serve the same but certainly worth it. The restaurant was clean and everything was available and the condiments were all filled. I had an enjoyable experience for a late lunch here

Sam C

I know that I shouldn't have had any expectations of vegetarian protein options when I entered the place, but it was getting late on the 4th of July, and most places weren't open. So, I browsed the menu for sides. Green beans have meat in them. Cool. Mac and cheese has meat in it. Great. I ended up landing on the Southwest slaw (which was really good), and a side of fries (standard/sub-par floppy fries). We made our way to the table, which was quite the trek. The floors are covered in a thin layer of grease. Seems like they might use the same mop in the kitchen and dining room and the poor thing is ready for retirement. Everyone in the dining room was "skating" around, like it was some sort of inside joke among patrons. Not bad, I guess.

Ben Browning

I was very impressed! This is great barbecue!

Michael Paul

It's a little pricey but aren't most barbeque restaurants? However, the food can't be beat and in my opinion it is the best in town when compared to other "Famous" barbeque places. City Barbeque is more fast food like though since you order and get your own drink before sitting down.

Mike and Ros C


Derek Tenney

Good food good portions and great atmosphere

Patty Bragger

Tasty food, kid friendly, and low carb options

Tom Marvel

Can't go wrong with City BBQ. I would recommend getting the brush fire sauce on whatever BBQ you happen to order. It has a great spice to it while still being incredibly flavorful. They are always quick to get the food out which makes it a convenient spot for a quick lunch before heading back to work. I've had the pulled pork multiple times and have always been extremely happy. Other people in my part have had the ribs and they've been devoured each time.

Jenny Hallman

Food 5/5 even though spiral noodles are not my favein mac n chz. Service 5/5. Cleanliness 3/5. Overall it totally hit the spot.

Josh Riedy

Love the food and it's normally pretty fast and friendly too.

Scott Levine

This is a small chain. If you're a regular patron, you'll find everything to be familiar. Expect counter service. Meats are smoked quite well, sauces are nice, and sides are of good quality. If you haven't been to City Barbeque in awhile... the quality of the meats is slowly declining - for example, a few months ago, they added the option of leaving the burnt pieces on the brisket (which they serve by weight), followed by not asking, followed by making all of it being sold "full thickness". Now, it's containing LARGE, thick streaks of fat, and slices are cut thicker to keep the slices whole. Still a tasty meal, but I'd watch for further declines in quality.

Tammy Sullivan

This is great BBQ. The flavor was awesome and the sauces so much to choose from. Highly recommend

Dorothee Dellamorte

Better than every barbecue place I've been to.

EWC Home Services And Interior Design

Great selection of meats, vegetables and drinks.

Kim Garmany

I love the greens
