REVIEWS OF City Barbeque and Catering IN Kentucky

Frances G

The food is excellent, The service I received from Jessica was underwhelming at best. I called and spoke to Jessica to add a side of pickles to an order. She rudely stated I needed to call door dash and she can not add anything. Pickles have no charge.!! The door dash does not have a option for pickles. Why couldn't she just throw the darn pickles in the bag?? Poor attitude. Will not order from this store again.

MrItisJim .

Super friendly folks, everything was yummy. Please bring back the sweet potato....

Chris Walsh

Great food with attention to detail. Solid process for picking up holiday catering during busy times (i.e Christmas Eve) or for daily take-out. The business owner is also committed to giving back to the community. Solid local business!

Tyra Gordon

The best Turkey salad in the world

Delena McGuire

Consistently good. This is chain restaurant bbq. You're not going to have a religious experience like at some of the mom and pop bbq joints, but it's still worth your time.

What a wonderful place! I’m really glad I stop by even though I’m not from this region. I wish we had seen barbecue restaurant in Orlando. What a wonderful place! I’m really glad I stop by even though I’m not from this region. I wish we had seen barbecue restaurant in Orlando. The food was amazing, very tender beef

Rocky Millwood

Being from the south, I'm lucky about my barbeque. City delivered everything a BBQ shack should.


The pulled pork is good. My husbands the BBQ fan, me not so much. He liked it though.

Cody McKinney

Pretty good BBQ! Their sauces were great and the atmosphere was pretty nice. Only complaints: Pretty expensive, and their pork was really fatty. But everything else I got was great - definitely get the potato salad.

V-Gail Simpson

The Food was Delicious and the service was even better...

steven Puckett

I love City Barbecue. Great smoked meat and great sauces to dip. Restaurant was clean and the employees were all nice.

LeAnn Krummen

This place has a lot of really good meet you'll have to try it all

Matthew Smith

Always good food! Had some new items on the menu since I had been there last, the person running the counter was very helpful in explaining the differences. It was very busy of course while I was asking him this, he was never rude or flustered or acted like I needed to hurry up.

Andre Kaufman

Excellent food as always. I would still prefer to get waited on for my table and this is the main reason the restaurant wasn't as accepted regionally as it could have been. The pricing is higher than it should be for the serivice. Again this is why a restaurant like CB has failed locally for the most part. A sit down experience would make the restaurant more successful. A small short-term loss of profit would net a gain long term. But unfortunately most business people are short-sighted and more interested in a quick buck, which is why your restaurant will likely fail eventually, which is a shame as the food is quite good.

David D.

Had the smaller sampler (brisket, pulled pork, turkey and sausage with two side [I had collard greens and vinegar cole slaw]). Everything was spot on, including the sausage and collard greens. Was enough food for two for sure. Didn't bother with the sauce...the true mark of great BBQ for me. The sampler was $20.13 tax included without a drink. You won't be disappointed here.

Joe Reis

Great food. Great service. Donna was at the table a few times asking if we needed anything else. This is above and beyond since it's a self service place.

Lou Hunter

Food was really good, nice atmosphere!!

Jo El

Great food and fast service

David Turner

Great as usual, even on mothers day. Very easy to get in and get our lunch.

Ande Anderson

Good food. Been here before. Returning customer.

Stephanie Haggard

Consistently good BBQ at a great price. What's not to love?

William Lindon

I really like this place, I think its great.

Richard Powell

The best Texas style barbecue outside Texas. Wonderful meals from one to one hundred. Bring your appetite because their portions aren't small. Reasonable price for quality food you received.

Christopher Barnett

Food is good but a little expensive compared to other barbeque places. Parking lot is terrible. Really good service and clean. The food is really good.


Good food.Good Service.Lady that took our order helped us get the most for our money.

Jessica Williams

Place was packed at 8PM on Saturday night. But for take out no problem. Staff polite. Food was good. Love the brisket and potato salad.

Michael Hawkins

Great "dine-in" experience. Love the smoked meats.

Carmen Mitchell

This place is SO YUMMY!!! I always get the chicken breast sandwich but I don't easy the bread. The chicken breast is huge and so moist and tender! My boyfriend loves the brisket. You can NEVER go wrong with City BBQ!!

George Singer

Best bbq I've ever had Corn pudding and baked beans are to die for. I don't.get to go except on my way to snowbirding in the.south but it is a must stop every time.

Madison Jarvis

Quick service and good quality food. We had The City Sampler and it was plenty of food for 2 people.

Evelyn Tubbs

Wonderful meal. Food was delicious and services was superb!

Pamela White

The chicken was very good. The slaw was bad. The green beans too salty. The French fries very good. Baked beans too saucey.

Rob Stevens

Fabulous food. I actually said "wow" out loud when I bit into my brisket, and my French fries. Absolutely delicious!!

Tony Williams

Great food and amazing service


Some of the best BBQ I've had!!! Staff very personable!! Try the banana pudding!!! (even if your not typically a fan, you might change your mind with theirs) YUM!!

Ashley Callaghan

Excellent barbeque and choice of meats and sides. A must visit.

Chris Wetzel

A chain barbeque place that doesn't taste like a chain barbeque place. Some of the best BBQ in the city can be had here. Favorites of mine are the brisket and the corn pudding. Worth the carb coma after lunch!

Lisa M. Valdez

First time visiting this restaurant and we loved it! We got take out but it was great. Next time we will dine in. Nice people as well.

Dina Accetta

Best barbeque place hands down

Chris Carson

Food ok, Way Way OVER priced

Melinda Mcmullin

They have a delicious garden salad with pulled chicken! I love their Texas toast also!

Bryan Jackson

Took a friend there who was from outta town and he was extremely impressed

H Tubbs

First time visit last week, had a smoked turkey sandwich which was piled high with the incredibly moist and tender turkey. They also have great selection of bbq sauces but their warm house bbq was the best. Definitely going back!

Ian Hendon

Very friendly staff. I wasn't there during a busy time, but the food was out almost instantly. Huge selection of different BBQ sauces. Portions were okay for the price, I didn't leave hungry, but I also could have eaten more. Every side dish I have tried been very tasty as well. I will definitely visit again.

Jon Yost

I love city bbq. For a chain, they make pretty good pulled pork. Is it going to beat home made? No but its good for a quick bite.

John Franks

Barbeque is generally good, but each visit has had a disappointing element. We carry out more often than not. The time before last, the ribs were extremely fatty. The most recent time, the trimmed brisket was sliced perfectly while the "full-cut" brisket was sliced with the grain, leaving meat that couldn't be eaten without excessive masticatiom. Next time, I'll examine the meats before I leave the restaurant. The sides have been perfect and the peach cobbler is fantastic.

Cass Johnson

Great BBQ, lots of excellent choices for sides. Try the baked beans... Really great. Highly recommended restaurant.

Jaime Jordan

Great food! Can't wait to go back!

Shawn Batka

Very good BBQ.


There pull pork and fries and there jack mac cheese is really good too my first time eating there i will go back to it

Sarah Schroeder

O my goodness!❤

Michael Jones

The food was very good! you'll get your monies worth and have you coming back for more.

Katherine Jones

Excellent food! Great atmosphere!

Teresa V

Great food and friendly staff. Fast service and they go out of the way to make sure you're satisfied.

Stephanie Amburgey

City BBQ Florence is quickly becoming my go-to restaurant when I don't feel like cooking for the family and just want to grab something on the way home. The food is always delicious. Customer service is above and beyond. And the City BBQ Rewards in their app is a nice bonus. I earn rewards all the time.

Jason Michael

Always great food.

Leron Owens

Great food great service

Melissa McGehee

A great bbq place with a strong variety of meats, sides, and sauces. Pulled pork with swine wine is great if you’re into vinegar bbq; if not, go for the brushfire. Surprisingly good salad too!

Tracy cook

I've been going to this place for a while and usually get the same thing. Well, my last two visits were the same order of brisket. In the past the brisket has been moist and tender with some fat attached. The past two visits the brisket has been very dry and hard. I don't know what has changed, but I'm not a fan of it. You might have just lost some customers.

Dennis Minch

Brisket and ribs were wonderful. Bought supper and ended up with supper and lunch.

Johnna Leslie

Everything they have is delicious!!! Wasn't sure about ordering their collard greens but boy I was sooo glad I did they were out of this world have to say some of the BEST I'VE EVER HAD!!!

Bryan Lambert

Great BBQ little pricey

Adam Gross

Over the years, City BBQ has served up excellent food, done a great job catering various events, and has always been charitable in the community. I give them a well deserved A+. I've been to this particular store more times than I can count and have always, without fail, had a great experience. Keep up the great work and thank you for being so generous in giving back to our community!

Brittany Dunn

Definitely one of my top favorite barbecue joints! The only thing I don't recommend from here is the mac and cheese. The only other issue is some days the meat is better than others.

Julie Farmer

Excellent carry -out service

Regina McIntosh

If you don't get the peach cobbler, you are denying yourself a piece of heaven on Earth. Just saying! Made nachos from the pulled pork. Will definitely be back!

Nichole Hopkins

Great food and really nice people

Margaret Ryan

My family and I love this place! Brisket is off the charts good! Atmosphere is relaxed and down to earth. Several different bbq sauces to choose from so something for everyone. Planning to use their catering for my next family function <3

Eric Moore

Great people. More Cow Bell is all I need to say.

Christina Dunnigan

Excellent flavor. Loved all of the sauces. Definitely come hungry!

James Scott

Good basic barbecue. Staff is friendly, if a little short when busy. It's a part of a chain, so the food is basically good, but nothing amazing. Prices are higher than a fast casual place but cheaper than a higher end shop. Plan on spending around ten bucks per person. The cowbell is pretty good, and the sweet tea is some of the best you can find this far north

shaun beauchemin

This place is amazing . I loved the flavor profile of there meats , there bbq sauces were awesome, the sides were great . I had the brisket, chicken, mac n cheese and fries. You won't be disappointed

Amanda Hemphill

Always amazing food! Pulled pork was decadent!

Luke Imperato

Always a good meal, can’t go wrong. Like if you agree! I usually get the 2 meat platter with 2 sides. You end up with a full meal and lunch for the next day! Delicious...

Carla Nicole Smith

We ordered the sampler that included smoked turkey, turkey sausage, brisket and pulled pork. My favorites were the turkey items and the sauces. While my man preferred the other two meats. All of those sauces were so delicious. I tried all of them and wish I could eat with them all the time at home. I really don't like BBQ sauce. But one tasted like a flavorful green BBQ salsa. I was hoping the brisket would be more tender though, to be honest. That's why I went. So my search continues for the most tender BBQ brisket.

Jason Scheer

This is the best BBQ I have had yet, anywhere. The people are also great. If you are in the area I HIGHLY recommend eating here. Definitely try the collard greens, they were amazing!

Lynn Gordon

Quick place to stop for some good food!

Hannah Jurgelis

We came here for dinner while visiting from out of state. We got the shredded pork family meal and a half slab of ribs. The fries were very good. They were like fair fries. They do need salt, but it's great like that you can add as much/little as you want. All the food was good, but my husband and I liked the ribs from Texas Roadhouse more. You seat yourself and there are no servers. So tables are first come first served kind of thing. It was a good price, and the ribs are on sale on Tuesdays for a dollar and some change per bone. Good place for a family dinner.

Brian Sayatovic

Catered Mac and Cheese was great! There was a small wait at pickup because of a large catering order being picked up just ahead of ours, but when our turn came, it was quick.

Stacy McGuire

#Best brisket ever

Ryan Armbrust

Always good bbq. Love the brisket.

Thomas Hurtt

First time here. Excellent food! Had a half slab of ribs that were awesome. Also the sides were great too!

Deborah Lebretton

Brisket was little dry. Noisey. Did not care for how you ordered the food. Prices OK no butter for cornbread. Potatoe salad OK

Jessica Strasinger

The Florence location is my favorite! Love the 'More Cowbell'. Haven't had a bad item. The ranch is great as well! Service is always fast and friendly.

Tara Wyatt

Not to my taste but it is popular with people I know. S eww ats are not comfortable and doesn't encourage relaxing.

daniel caruso

Great food! Very consistent.

Marci Seletas

Pulled pork and green beans were spectacular! I will definitely be back!


Why doesn't Cleveland/Akron have Citi Barbeque?? They are yummy for the tummy. Ya'll serve it up well in Florence, KY

Lou Larson

Smoked turkey and chicken with sides. We had some complementary brownies that were very good.

Giovanni Firmino

The best (in Florence KY)

Eric Gammon

Visited 3 times in 4 days, absolutely great bbq. Tried the ribs, pulled chicken, brisket, Turkey and sausage. All were juicy and moist, abundance of different sauces. Great food, will be going back

John Brown

Great food ice cold beer

Andy Robinette

Pulled pork was good, but slightly dry. Nice variety of sauces to compliment the pork including a bourbon bbq sauce.

Anthony Plummer

They serve good meats at reasonable prices. Portions are a bit on the small side compared to a sit down, full table service restaurant but the price reflects that. The sides are better than you expect, they're pretty much all better than they should be.

Jeremy Baker

"Pull your phone out Dad this restaurant gets 10 stars from Scarlett" - a quote from my five year old daughter as she chowed down on delicious pulled pork, Mac n cheese, and green beans

Joshua Hahn

Amazing food. We went because Logan's had a two hour wait. A local gave me directions to "The best BBQ in town." Glad i went.

Mrs. Davis

Food is awesome and plentyful

Alex H

I was told by a friend to stop here on my way north to Cleveland. I'd definitely go back next time I pass through!

Fredd William

ALWAYS a pleasure going there great food and service

Steve Kirkland

I'm a Texan and therefore a barbecue snob. We have incredibly wonderful barbecue in the Lone Star State and it's always a challenge to find anything close to it while traveling. Today I found it right here at City Barbeque! What wonderful, melt-in-your-mouth brisket with incredibly perfect flavor! The fries and collard greens were pretty dang good as well, but that banana pudding was the grand finale! Well done Kentuckians, I am highly impressed!

Nathaniel Bauer

Great bar b q ! We came in a Saturday night. It was very busy but staff seemed to still work in a professional manner and take care of their customers. I will always return because of this

Betty Navarro

The cake was very fresh the food had seasoning on it

Morgan Sheeran

Pretty good ribs.

Joe Lahner

City Barbeque catered a "Celebration of Life" event after my father's funeral. I cannot express how pleased I am with their performance, food and pricing. From the very beginning Jennifer was a pleasure to deal with and later Tom helped with some last minute adjustments and even donated the warmers. From ordering, the delivery and setup and the exceptional quality of the food City BBQ in Florence hit this one out of the park. Everyone at the dinner commented on how good the food was and several had also commented that they would use them for their events. I am already planning two other events that need catering in the coming months and will look no further than City BBQ! Great job to everyone on your team and thank you for taking one more worry off my plate and replacing it with brisket!

Maryanne D'Anna

Sad by the time I arrived the brisket was sold out! The pulled pork and ribs were very good. If you like vinegar based sauces, definitely have the swine wine! It was so good we got a bottle to take home! There were many sauces, have fun trying them all. The bourbon and peach habanero tied for my second favorite. I enjoyed the hush puppies and the Rhinegeist Cheetah local beer. I usually take tons of photos but I was so hungry I eat immediately. Lastly, the manager Chris had AMAZING hospitality that went beyond words! Absolutely worth and visit. If I'm back in area I will definitely return!

Amanda Hanke

Good dinner with family. Enjoyed the fresh cut brisket. It had a nice bark and smoke ring. Moist and flavorful without any sauce. My first time having a bell peppers in my slaw, different but good. Happy BBQING

Francis Fletcher

One of my favorite places to eat!

James White

Food is always great, freindly and nice place to eat. Would be nice to have a Salmon or Seafood option for Pescatarian diets.

Robert Lucerne

Just in town for a short time. Ate there twice. Outstanding food and service both times. Highly recommend this BBQ to anyone that loves BBQ.

Jeff Sterling

Excellent bbq and great selection of sauces!

Susan Shibley

Second time we've stopped in while driving south. Excellent beef brisket and sides of potato salad and cornbread casserole.

Stephanie Hanson

Loved this place! Recommend it highly! Clean. Great service. Delicious food. Go!

Lauren Hull

Best barbeque out there!

Jared Barhorst

Great portion sizes. The pulled pork is easily enough for 2 heaping sandwiches. I only ordered the pulled pork sandwich and was surprised with 3 samples of sides and 2 cups of BBQ sauce upon opening my carryout bag. The staff was very friendly and more than happy to answer my questions. Would definitely recommend and will be returning regularly. It's hard to comment on the flavor of the food as every BBQ varies as much as people's expectations but it is very tender and juicy.

Bob Dees

Always good quality at a fair price. The consistency of good food is the staple here.

Andy Lamb

For a BBQ chain,. This is my fav. Stop Everytime I pass one.

Benjamin Anderson

This was a legitimately good BBQ place. For the price, you'll be hard pressed to find a better joint. I got the brisket and the ribs. Both were done quite well. I tried most of the sauces, however, my favorite turned to be the original. The others were just a tad too gimmicky for me. However, just my opinion. I still highly recommend this place.

Lora Sullivan

Great, smoky flavor. Friendly people.

Halle Little

The food was AMAZING! The manager Chris treated us so well and made sure we got everything we wanted. This place was great so glad we got to eat here!

Dawn Kudron

2 meat plate with brisket and pulled pork was delish

Jason Weiland

Really good BBQ, best chain BBQ around

Dana Bordeaux

Best place in theworld for good barbecue not cooked at home! Huge portions for the money!

Cynthia Byrd

Quick service and the pulled pork was very good!

Rick Mendenhall

So many great flavors it's hard to choose my favorite. Great family friendly.

Bud Pennington

Wonderful bbq, and Beth was a great server and hostess....

somi lomi

I was really pleased with this place, especially since it is a chain. Had the ribs and jacked mac and cheese with brisket. Loved the ribs and the sauces that I tried were delicious. They were light on the brisket (upcharge), but the dish itself was very tasty and indulgent. Would definitely come back and get a slab of ribs and some brisket by the pound.

James Keenan

Great food at a good price. Love the pulled pork! Kids meals are reasonably priced and come with a drink. Don't forget to use the App. Reward for every $100 spent.

Dan Stryker

Good food but no brunswick stew? Took a star off for that...

Linda nickles

I wanted a rib sandwich and they had a boneless rib sandwich; it was so good! I went back the next day and bought another one and took it with me to work for my lunch.

chrys smith

Love city bbq. Best ribs around

Chefk Andy

You have to try 18 hour brisket melts in ur mouth. I'm a picky chef. I crave this bbq!!!

Al Siebert

Ribs were good but could have been more tender.

K Andy

I'm a picky chef. I'm in Love with the 18 hour cooked brisket...melts in your mouth... Yum if you want great bbq at great prices!! I love all their bbq and sauces!! Homemade pickles yummm...Love it!!

Erika Oliver

Great spot for quick casual dining. Menu is a little odd/pricy in that you had to order sides separately. I had the More Cowbell Sandwich. It was very rich and filling!

Judi Hudson

Excellent service and great food. Good serving portions.

Natalie Patrick

My family got the Cowbell sandwich, pulled pork sandwich, burnt tips, macncheese, collards, potato salad, green beans and cornbread. The cowbell is brisket between Texas toast, and has toppings that you would find on a cheese steak sandwich. It was delicious. Pulled pork sandwich was perfect, and we all enjoyed tasting the different sauces available. My favorite was the peach harbarnero. I enjoyed the potato salad and collards were just like my grandmas country cooking(not a fan of the sweet cornbread, but that is because we do not do it sweet at home). Daughter also liked the macncheese. We enjoyed our meal, and by downloading the City Barbecue App, we were able to get $5.00 off of our meal. Large portions, so remember when ordering.

Shan Dee

Chris was so amazing! The food was delicious and the service was great. 11/10 would recommend to anyone who loves some good BBQ.

constance bell

Excellent customer service as always!! I had the brisket sandwich and two sides. The greens were a little crunchy this time,collards should be soft and smooth in my opinion. But other than that it was Delicious!!

Regina Elliott

Great food, great service, ALWAYS!!

Scott Nichting

Always good. Sides are great too. A lot more food than you think.

john s

They were out of 2 meats and a few other items so having to resort to getting pulled chicken while eating the chicken there was a Lrg sharp bone stabbed into my mouth. See pictures. I would not recommend the pulled chicken. I had to wipe down my own table as well as sticky stuff off the booth seats. There BBQ sauce warmer was also broken and after informing them of the issues they did not seem to concerned about it just saying well it happens. Overall I would recommend one of the many other better BBQ places close by.

Stacey Noble

Yum!! Good value, great service, delicious food!

Johnny Quest

My wife and I both ordered beef brisket. She ordered hers naked and I with bun. My wife got more beef and I got skimped on. Won't be back.

Shonda Lucas

Quiet barbeque dinner with the family.

Bradley Reeves

Really good food and great sauces with a wide selection.

Christopher Groh

You can not go wrong when ordering any of the famy packs. They throw everything you need in . From all your utensils to sauces. Plus they super friendly. Thanks again City Bbq. You have a great team !!

Colby Yoder

Friendly Service, Nice Atmosphere. They offered samples as we walked into the door. Loved the different selection of sauces. All of their sides are big enough to share between two people .

Taneka Myrick

Taste Good and nice portion sizes!

Stephen Hassert

Ever since I tried the turkey breast sandwich, it has been my go-to entree. And this time, it did not disappoint!!! So tender and moist...add pickles and a little of the bourbon bbq sauce and I'm in heaven. BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE! my sides were the hugh pile of fries and the Gumbo. Yes, Gumbo was on the menu and boy was it good. Just the right amount of heat, too. I had such a big amount of food left that I had enough for lunch the next day...except the gumbo cuz that was eaten right away while it was hot. Great job Florence City BBQ!

Latefa Woods

Amazing food served with excellent service.The greens & cornbread will make you smack ya momma! You will be sorry you missed it if you leave Florence without grabbing a bite.


Amazing food, best barbeque around!

Leah Hon

I had the pulled pork sandwich. The potato salad is the best I've had, although ALL the sides are wonder. Definitely going back!

Brian Buschman

Great and fast BBQ joint I'm impressed with the quality of Barbeque from a chain restaurant. I wish this chain was available in my area. This location was very easy and convenient to use when I was traveling. I only got take out but they prepare the food quickly and packaged it well. I appreciated the brisket the burnt ends and the chocolate cake as well. I wish I had time to enjoy more of the menu.

Sarah Walls

Some of the best pulled pork I've ever had

Michael Reuter

City Barbeque is definitely got good food nice place to go clean quiet respectable.

Gina Ramage

Wow. I always loved the food and service here. Ordered the "Motherload" meal for a family of 4, and sides were in smaller containers than the sauces. $60 is not a fair price, and City BBQ is no longer a good value for the money. Sorry guys.

Wes Blevins

I love this place. The meats are outstanding, flavorful, moist. This afternoon I watched my brisket being sliced fresh from the smoker. How does it get better than that? The sides are surprisingly varied for a chain restaurant, also very good. The staff is friendly, the sauces complement the meats well and the drinks are bottomless. I’ve had the privilege of eating in some fine restaurants both locally and while traveling, and enjoyed those experiences immensely. My enjoyment of City Barbeque’s food is up there with many of the finer restaurants I’ve been to.

Keith Nelson

Had the ribs and corn pudding,best ever.
