REVIEWS OF City Barbeque and Catering IN North Carolina

Petra H

Texas barbecue. Best brisket I can only recommend trying some Texas BBQ. Has been my favorite place since I found it and go there every chance I get

Tech Hub

Top notch. Clean and food is always awesome. Staff is kind and welcoming too. Can't say the same for the Garner location; their food is subpar.

Dana Kennedy

Consistently good and fast, great place to eat with a toddler (especially if he likes dipping food in sauce).

Romour Adams

This was our first visit to City Barbeque. The food was very good, employees were very personable, facility was very clean considering the volume of people coming and going. We will return.

Michael Hayman

One of the best BBQ places in the whole Raleigh area. Everyone is super nice and the food is ridiculously good. If you haven't eaten here you're doing yourself a disservice.

Karen Barlow

It was great! The food was delicious, the staff was friendly. We were meeting there to discuss plans for Cub Scout Summer Day Camp. It was a perfect place to meet. We were able to sit outside. We be back again.

Arndraya Jones

Meat was very dry, veggies luke warm service was slow.Very disappointong.

Susan Crudele

Delicious, brisket is some of the best I have had, try it, you won't be sorry!!

Anne Shrode

Love the chicken, various sauces, and delicious sides! Indoor and outdoor seating. Can get busy and the line gets long but it’s worth the wait!

Sean F

Good food. Brisket and ribs were delicious.

Collin Boggs

Recently moved from out of state and have tried City Barbeque twice (in 3 days). As an avid barbequer myself I'm very particular when going out for BBQ. I have to admit I was nervous at trying a chain, but City Barbeque knocked it out of the park! Service is exceptional, all of the meats are spot on with great smoke rings and bark, sauces are all uniquely excellent, sides are fantastic, in fact the baked beans are the best I've ever had! We'll be back over and over again.

Joe Harrison

I think City Barbeque has the best meats. The pulled pork and beef brisket are my favorites. But the turkey is very delicious. The sides are great also. I really enjoy the potato salad and collards. For lunch I like to get the cowbell. It's a beef brisket sandwich with onions, green peppers and provolone on Texas toast. They also offer cooked whole turkeys or turkey breast for pick up on Thanksgiving day. I have bought my turkey for Thanksgiving from City Barbeque the past two years. The customer service is always top notch. This City Barbeque store is run very well. The only complaint i can think of is they need some ice cream to go on their triple chocolate cake and peach cobbler. Do your self a favor and down load the City Barbeque app. You get points for every dollar you spend that will give you discounts on food.

Russell Townshend

Best ribs in Cary. Tasty potato salad.

Sylvia Morgan

Food was was clean...staff friendly

Jennifer Fletcher

May be the best barbeque that I have had

Neils Nygaard

By far my favorite BBQ place in the country. My family always gets the Lo Lo's sandwiches which are delicious, I usually get the brisket sandwich though I can't quite remember the name, however both have very memorable flavors. My wife got the pulled chicken. Last time and it was delicious, though she likes the (I think it's grilled?) Chicken breast sandwich better. Definitely worth the visit, and quite inexpensive for the quality and taste of food!

Michael Grant

Food is good and service is fast. Employees are always friendly. I think the the scary location is much better than the Garner location. Sometimes the bbq is just warn and not as hot as I’d like temperature wise.

sherry Ambrose

Try the brisket on Texas toast, but get some sweet BBQ sauce. Yum!

Cherylann Baker

Awesome place!! Ribs were fall off the bone tender, sides were good too. If in Cary, would highly recommend this place.

Rafael Svelti

First time I visit North Carolina and wow. The food was amazing and the service was incredible. The girl at the counter was so sweet. I loved the place.

Brian H. Frost

I normally don't care for BBQ but had family in town and they wanted it. I had heard good things about City BBQ. They were all correct. We had 6 people in our group and everything we ordered was awesome. Definitely worth it.

adamwoodring1 .

Food was good, service great. Crowded place, makes it hard to get to the soda fountain and other necessaries.

Martha Sawall

Great variety of BBQ meats. Huge sauce bar. Tasty sides. Burnt ends do sell out fast, but they're worth it. The "side salad" is simple, but has good quality ingredients and it is huge. I like adding some of the meat from my plate to the salad - the smoked turkey is my favorite for this application. One meat plate with two salads is a perfect lunch for two people. There are a couple sampler plates available, they are large enough to share for dinner.

Wurks Z

Their beef brisket is amazing and corn pudding is to die for. My favorite place for BBQ beef. They have seasonal beef ribs too. Excellent service and very friendly folks. Always a treat to dine there.

Charles Thomas

Aersome bbq

David Laurence

Got the 1/2lb of brisket with fried okra. Thought brisket was exceptional, it was very moist and tender. Will be coming back to try other menu options in the future. The okra was really good. The okra was not mushy, or over cooked it had the perfect balance of softness and crunch. We were very impressed. Sauces were great too. They’ve got a nice rack of sauces to pick from, so there’s definitely going to be something for everyone. Our order was prepared very quickly. I don’t think we waited longer than three minutes.

Billy Hudgins

Some of the best barbecue one had in a while. The selection is great and the meat is cooked perfectly. I also love trying all the different sauces. Never had anything bad from here!

Judy Young

Awesome place! The people were beyond nice, helpful, and patient. The food was great, lots of flavor and best bbq I've had in awhile, especially from a fast food lol will definitely be visiting again!

Michael Armstorng

The prices are decent and their original sauces allow for easy customization of flavor, whether that means something with more kick or is sweet barbecue preference.

Dan Ng

Excellent BBQ with fair prices. You walk in, take your order and pay, and find a seat while they cook your food. I had the ribs, brisket and fries. Ribs were nearly cooked perfect with both tenderness and not falling off the bone. Brisket was very tender as well. They have various BBQ sauces of which mostly uses Western-North Carolina style BBQ sauces, so they are thicker and sweeter. They do have the tangy eastern-southern Carolina sauce of which is a lot lighter and more vinegar based, but they only had one type of this sauce when I was here. Regardless, good was excellent, so definitely make a pit stop here if you’re near the area. We stopped here twice when we’re here.

mike earnest

The pulled pork is OK, the brisket is much better. Lots of sauces to chose from. Order at the register, food is ready in less than 2 minutes.

Jeff Wakefield

Great BBQ. Burnt ends and brisket are especially good. Sides are also excellent, especially the baked beans with brisket and corn pudding. Service always friendly, they will let you taste samples, 6 or 8 different sauces, management quickly addresses any issues.

Matt Gawron

Great BBQ. Indoor/outdoor seating.

Brian Castellano

My first experience at City Barbecue and it didn't disappoint. I had heard that this was the best chain barbecue restaurant and I can attest to the accuracy of that statement. The food took no time at all to be ready and was some of the best barbecue I've ever had. Highly recommend!!!

Jonathan Moy

Holy Cow!! If you are ever in North Carolina this is a go to!! Amazing food, great service and so many bbq sauces to choose from!! This is what bbq is about!!

Mark Baysden

I'm from Texas and not a fan of North Carolina BBQ. This place has excellent brisket. Baked beans have brisket in them. I've never had a bad meal here. Their pork is easy coast and is good but not my favorite.

Thomas Crille

This place is the awesome!! My family is hooked on BBQ from the food here. I’m glad. The brisket and corn bread are out of this world. Why go to an expensive BBQ joint in Raleigh? This is better.

Eric Kalin

First visit, you walk up to a cashier, place your order, pick up your food and choose a table. The beef brisket with a side of collards and pork was delicious.They offer 8 different sauces and a selection of craft beers, I chose Jordan Lake IPA. The restaurant was very busy for lunch, but there was still adequate seating inside and out. Parking is plentiful because the restaurant is located in a shopping mall.

Osman Toruno

Holly! Made my visit extraordinary! I haven't had southern comfort food in a while and she went above and beyond and really made sure I did not leave without trying some of the many great choices! I'm from AZ and good BBQ has been hard to find, I now have a spot in NC

Audra Smith

So far, best BBQ I’ve had in Raleigh. The property looks so much like a chain but it does not have a chain taste. I’ve had many a Lexington NC BBQ, even places in eastern NC and Winston Salem, and it was so Smokey and juicy! Homemade Mac and cheese. Quick, too! And what’s even better, they have so many styles of BBQ whether you Iike a more vinegar, more spicy, more saucy and sweet, there were more than ten varieties!

Samantha Smith

I was surprised this was a chain! It was absolutely delicious. Can't go wrong with anything from here

Paul Seager

Sure if you like BBQ you will like this place. Food good and reasonable prices.

Joseph Kurilecz

Best place for barbeque in the area. I have had everything on their menu and enjoyed them all. Meat is always moist and comes in generous portions. They also honour our veterans by giving a free sandwich and two sides to us veterans on veterans day.

Steve Hughes

We usually get the pulled pork sandwich and I get a side of potato salad to go with it. The sandwiches are always huge and full of sweet smokey meat. The potato salad is the best anywhere! The service and atmosphere are very friendly and encourage an enjoyable meal. We prefer this location over the Garner location.

Dora-Lee Ober

Delish! Whole family loved it and already talking about what they want to order next time. Thank you!

marque1313 .

Good BBQ for a chain restaurant. Can be a bit pricey, & their brisket can be overdone/burnt, and a bit dry sometimes. Other than that its an OK place to grab some quick BBQ.

Sean M

Great BBQ

e m-b

My husband is from Louisiana and likes this BBQ style the most. Food is plentiful, service is quick n clean.


Delicious barbeque, some of the most tender and flavorful I've ever had in the area. Wait times aren't bad and they have a lot of options. Great place for a family outing or a small lunch.

William Rogers

Decent pulled pork but didn’t cook the pork in the sauce and didn’t even have any NC styles to choose from at the counter. Then again... it is Cary.

Jason Beck

City BBQ is consistently good. It's our go- to BBQ place now. The hush puppies are the best I've had, the beef brisket is tender, juicy, and full of flavor, the vinegar based Cole slaw may also be my favorite. They had less sauce options than in the past, which I was disappointed about, but they still had at least 5, which is more than most. The Mac and cheese is solid- it's not The Pit good, but the brisket is better, so it's a fair trade. The pulled pork is just ok in my opinion. We had the sausage for the first time and it was fantastic! I will choose sausage and brisket again next time. I love the bottled soda selection they offer- Big Red, Nehi Peach, etc. It's hard to find some of those, so it's fun to have them at City BBQ.

Bonnie Gaskill

Quick service! Great food! Friendly people!

Ebony Gorum

I haven't been here in a year. We came in at lunch time and although it was busy, service was fast. I had forgotten the sandwich I used to order when I described it the cashier new exactly what I was talking about. I ordered the Cowbell and my husband ordered ribs. We also learned that Tuesday was 40% off on all ribs.

Vince Runyan

I live in Dallas, and this is better than any BBQ I’ve ever had in Texas. Amazing ribs, incredible brisket, and a great variety of incredible sauces.

Ashwin Pasumamla

Great BBQ place. The ribs are insanely good. Don't miss the Tuesday's 40% off deal on ribs!!!

Cyrus Haggerty

Stopped in for a quick bite. Had the beef brisket and it was delicious, not to mention quick

Ellen Holmes Steeves-LeBlanc

DELICIOUS BRISKET......Really good Unsweet tea.....friendly service and when you ask for Brisket with less fat they do it. Perfection ❤

Nancy Domnic

The brisket is fantastic. Hands down. Their BBQ sauces are amazing. Corn bread is perfect.

Andrew Fitts

Best chicken and side items are good too! Highly recommend!

Kevin Smith

Love the barbecue at this place. I think most of Cary knows this, by looking at how many people are here. Excellent barbecue, the ribs are wonderful, and the staff are really concerned that you have the best experience possible. You need to expand this into other locations, specifically Charleston, SC. I would definitely be a regular.

Kriket G.

My fav bbq near me

The Real Shawn Gottie

Coming from Kansas city style and STL style BBQ, THIS IS AMAZING FOOD!

John Spagnolo

Good food and extremely friendly staff. Very downscale. There is no wait service, you go to the counter to get the food when they call you. The food again was good. Mediocre really. It was nothing special but not bad at all. We had a party of 10 and nobody was disappointed but nobody was blown away either. Overall though worth every penny. Very affordable and you won't be disappointed with anything.

Angela Evans

Visiting from Maryland and our first time there. The food is absolutely GREAT!!! Staff was wonderful!!! Keep up the good work

Michael Leary

Delicious food, quick service, nice rustic atmosphere and decor.

igustowski .

Delicious BBQ food and great service!!

Chris Hendrickson

I'm consistently impressed with the service I receive at City Barbeque. The meat is always juicy, flavorful, and perfectly cooked. I'd recommend the corn casserole and Jacked Mac side items.

Vivian Fish

Nice atmosphere. Good sides. Lolo's chopped BBQ was full of slabs of fat....more fat than BBQ.

Pamela Schmalenberger

I've only had carry-out or delivery, but the food is amazing. The bananna pudding is an excellent treat to end your meal!

Edward Sieminski

Very good meats cooked properly. Best selection of BBQ sauces in the area including bourbon and apple. Good variety on the menu. Server quickly.

Anna Scarborough

Best BBQ and ribs I've had in years. Went for mother's day with my in laws and my mother in law got a piece of chocolate cake for free. We will be back soon.


Some of the best barbecue I've ever had. Brisket had just the right amount of fat, and the ribs were perfect--almost but not quite falling off the bone. Good portions for a good price, though they were out of the turkey and burnt ends an hour after opening (about 11:40am) on a Thursday, and were packed with a line out the door half an hour after that, so you may want to plan to get here early if you want in on those. I particularly enjoyed the Cheerwine barbecue sauce, and the corn pudding was to die for. I'm probably not going to be in North Carolina for a while, but I know I'm going to be thinking of coming back for that corn pudding for ages.

Jason Chamberlain

I went here as a part of a fundraiser for a "Spirit Night." The food is tasty, if a little pricey. My brisket sandwich was delicious, albeit rather greasy. That made it pretty hard to eat. We got some loaded fries and they were quite good. My kids both got loaded mac and cheese with brisket and thoroughly enjoyed them. I liked the potato salad and the baked beans. Their hush puppies are "golf ball" style. They're fairly tasty, but I don't like the dense texture as well as the "fritter" style you get at a traditional NC BBQ restaurant. It gets pretty loud inside the restaurant. The patio is the way to go on a nice evening. However, the sun does set on some of the patio, so it's not going to be great on a hot day.

Michelle Jacobs

Got the City Sampler this time and it was GREAT! The sausage and the turkey are super delish! Plus they do a lot for the community. Awesome place!

Anthony Li

Excellent. Quality food and service. Great atmosphere. The Judges sampler is a great way to try most of their options.

Audriana Zehra

Oh my yum this place is AMAZING! BBQ is so flavorful and they have a variety of BBQ sauces to go with it. I got the brisket sandwich and it was so good I even took one home with me and got it through airport security

Jessica Hager

Amazing food. Potato salad and okra is to die for. And the brisket was, well AMAZING

Brad Parker

The sauce was not good and it was really expensive. Not a fan.

Monica Leigh

I love this place! Best southern bbq in town. I love the variety of bbq sauce they offer. The sides are delicious as well. Sweet tea to die for! Just be careful getting the fries to go because they get soggy easily. Pretty much anything fried is that way. They have cornhole out front and lots of outdoor seating. 10/10 would reccomend!

John Jones

This place is great, I absolutely love City BBQ... The brisket is good, the sausages are tasty and the smoked turkey is scrumptious... Oh, don't forget the corn pudding and hush puppies.. some of the best I have had in Raleigh. The atmosphere is fun and exciting and the constant smell of spices and BBQ is over the top... If you want to enjoy real BBQ this is the place...I highly recommend this City BBQ...

Jimmy C Baker

Really good BBQ. Worth the drive. I will return.

Hayden Schulstad

This is the only real BBQ in town. They have vinegar based if you want it, but they have the real southern sauce that I'm used to


The sides are the star of the show at City BBQ. I have many friends agree that the fried okra is the best anywhere. Collards are wonderful, gumbo is insane. Also, there is a variety of sides (like 8) that change seasonally -- so there is always something new to try. So, you will love the BBQ here, but the sides steal the show.

Adan Calderon

Good place. Quick service.

Julie W

Disappointed their wake county sanitation rating has gone down. I look at that when entering a restaurant now. Quite pricey for lunch. They don't have enough lunch deals either.

Lindsey Elizabeth

Always delicious! Corn pudding and the LoLo pulled pork sandwich are my favorites. The new chili sauce is delicious!

Sarah Bohrmann

We had City BBQ catered for a party. It was absolutely excellent! Our guests raved about the food. The service was also amazing. We communicated with Lynn beforehand to get our contract, and she was very professional and easy to work with. Lyndon did an incredible job at the party setting up, serving food, and packing up. We could not be happier with how everything went, and we highly recommend City BBQ for catering (or anytime!)

Lauren Rodriguez

This place is phenomenal!!!! I’m visiting from Florida and wanted some real BBQ and they were so friendly, real southern home feeling. Not sure if Jason was the owner but he certainly cared like one. He was kind and asked me how I was doing, and even treated me to dessert! If I’m ever back in this area, this will be my first stop. Not to mention the food was AMAZING definitely recommend the green beans

Sarah M

Really good. I enjoy going here. The brisket is a little fattier than I'd like to eat, but that's my only complaint. Everything else I've had is tasty.

Skip Bishop

Food was very good. Serving sizes of sides are large. Organization at the door and the ordering process is very confusing. The food delivery across the same counter as pick-up / take-out orders are passed across is mayhem. No real organized system of ordering, paying, receiving is apparent!

James Rinehart

Delicious BBQ!! Was in town on business. Wanted to find a good place to dine. Googled food near me and saw this location. Wow isn't a big enough word. Fantastic food. I had the 2 meat platter with pulled pork and brisket. I got mac n cheese and the baked beans w brisket. Delicious. If you are in the area or live in the area give them a try. Its great!

Siah Da Great 12

Food was off.....couldnt figure it out...abd i am a south point and cary location

Lisa Oxendine

Best Ribs and BBQ ever. That's saying alot I'm a Southern girl and have eaten lots of ribs & BBQ but seriously delicious

Danielle Vazquez

So yummy. Best bbq around.

Ryan Lundeen

As a Texan, I was pleased with this place. Great pulled pork and brisket. Not too dry, and they have a sauce bar to customize your flavor. Rudy's meets Franklin's. I left full and happy.

Annette Gruenstern

This place is SOOOO good. Everything was delicious. The chicken was the best I've ever had.

Natalie Woodland

Good food. Just a bit crowded during the lunch hour rush! Corn pudding is the bomb!!

Tony Schloss

Always great food, reasonable prices. Gets a bit crowded but worth the wait.

Erica Shafovaloff

I'm so thankful for City BBQ. I can do a lot of things and cooking isn't one of them. I know I can go to this location and leave with a big smile because the staff is great and the food is delicious. Thank you City BBQ for bringing delicious flavor and great service to Cary:D!

John Kotleba

Food was very good, staff very friendly.

Sarah Thornton

Take out food was delicious. Very short wait time. Nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff .

Chris Bern

An awesome surprise. I just discovered this place and liked it so much I ate there two days in a row. Classic southern BBQ with some unique sauces and great sides. Will definitely come back whenever I am in Cary!

Danielle Hilton

I tried this for the first time yesterday and was very disappointed. I got the pulled chicken with mac and cheese. The first bite into the chicken I got a hard chunk of cartilage. So I looked thru the chicken and found a bone about 2 in. long. Grossed me out that I couldn't attempt to eat that anymore. Moved on to the mac and cheese which tasted like fake cheese sauce. Out of the $12 lunch, the only decent thing was the banana pudding!

John Bryan

City BBQ is the BEST! Meats for days! Cooked to perfection! Best Peach Cobbler, not too sweet!

karen Isaksen

Delicious brisket sandwich..creamy dreamy coleslaw

Jazmine Chesson

They are catering my wedding and I can't get enough!


Their food was amazingly delicious. My whole family enjoyed our lunch. I didn't realize it was sauce for the brisket until I was done but it was delicious without it.

Taylor Callegari

We have small kids so it was super chaotic there. It was packed and there was a line out the door on a Saturday night. There aren't waiters there, you have to serve yourself and so next time we will just do take out. The food was incredible though!

snake pliskin

Subjecting someone to this chain que would be like visiting Maine, asking for lobster and being dragged to a Red Lobster. 2 stars because the sides, while overpriced, are OK. We're in North Carolina, folks. No reason to settle for this mess.

Tammy Gregory-Daughtrey

Straight up the BEST brisket I have ever eaten. The baked beans and collards were also very good. There was plenty of food for 3 with leftovers. But, man, that brisket. Perfect.

Latasha Lorenzo

Very good food. First time going here, have seen it several times from the road passing by. Glad we finally stopped. I got the bbq sandwich, corn, hushpuppies. Everything was fantastic. Customer service was great to.

Aron Echols

I don't give many 5 stars but the chicken breast is so moist sure stalker CDD 2057nc. Would give a thumbs up...

mark fachorn

This place is fantastic. Everything I've tried there is amazing especially the ribs and brisket chili. It is a must try. Guarantee you if you try it you will love it.

E Schronce

Good experience for me and my friends. Even though the line was long It went quickly. The food was fresh. My only complaint was that the pulled chicken I ordered was mostly fat and not much chicken. It reminds me of the chain "Mission Barbecue".

chapshooter16 .

I got there 30 minutes after they open on a friday which was pretty full but they moved everyone along quickly. I got the brisket and ribs with fries and the jacked mac with bacon. The ribs were pretty good i enjoyed them. The mac and cheese was phenomenal. It was so cheesy and had a great texture. Fries were great as well but the star of the show was the brisket. That thing was juicy and fall apart tender. It was a fatty piece too which is where all your flavor is at. City bbq does it right. If you want some good bbq then this is the place for you.

Wm Anthony Harrelson Sr

The Ribs the food the pulled pork was Delicious. love the place 5 stars

Richard Wu

Food is fine but store forgot items for my delivery order and since they used Doordash to deliver the food, doordash could do nothing to give me credit or a refund for the missing food. Called the store ten times during operating hours to try and get a hold of them but they apparently don't pick up or have a downed phone line. Currently unable to get to the store like I typically do but that's why I got delivery in the first place. So basically, I paid for food that I never got and I can't contact anyone from the store so I guess I'm out of luck. Not even going to bother disputing with the card company for this one. Lack of ways to contact the store is annoying.

Kristine Gonzalez

Excellent as always! Best BBQ around. Staff is so helpful and friendly

Michael Clancy

Meat was super tender and moist. Definitely coming back before I leave the area. This City BBQ has amazing staff, super friendly, and awesome attitudes! Thank you for the great BBQ experience!

Christine Yerger

Great food. Good atmosphere.

Matthew Donaldson

The best damn BBQ in the land. You must try this place at least once. I recommend you ask for lean brisket, turkey, and their creamy mac and cheese.

Anthony Frevola

Its a legit BBQ place pulled chicken I got was pretty good even with out BBQ sauce on it. My other half got pulled pork she liked it our 4 year old got chicken and fries. My only complaint is Mac n cheese was not good but ice tea was homemade and pretty good would recommend it and will go back.

alfredo olivares

Never tried city bbq until one of your employees dropped off samples at our store location. The food is amazing especially the corn bread! Will order some tomorrow for lunch!

ted buckner

Very casual eatery with great food. I was delighted to get a carry out container for leftovers made of compostable material.

Eboni Maynard

Awesome food great customer service.

Steve Maygar

They have some of the best overall bbq. Most of their selections are better than average; pulled pork, ribs are good, Turkey and chicken very moist. Had the brisket twice and it was a bit dry both times, but the burnt ends were flavorful. Cornbread pudding is fantastic(corn in cornbread)

Dave Brodie

Good Food. But messed up the order and didnt seem to care.

Steven Naylor

It is amazing food and good people working here. I come up from Florida every so often to visit my sister and family and we always go here. Try anything you won't regret it!

Riley Rose III

'Fast food' BBQ. Good prices and selection, and great tasting food.

Megan Perkins

Everyone here is always friendly. They even catered my wedding! I typically get the brisket and it's always really good. They also offer a wide variety of sauces and toppings to jazz up your meal if you wish. Dropping one star because on busy days it can be a bit confusing to navigate inside and is a bit hectic. Download the app in advance for good deals frequently.

Guy Grundman

Great food and service at reasonable prices!

bigtata84 .

Excellent place overall. Food was really good and the staff was very welcoming and open to helping you with anything you need. A bonus is if your curious if something on the menu, you can a free sample on the spot to try it before you buy it. Epic place overall.

Belinda Gilmore

I love brisket and so far this place has the best. Very flavorful, tender and moist. Potato salad was pretty good but no place is as good as mine. The service was suprisingly fast and the place was very clean. I look forward to going back.

Donald Pizzoli

It's great BBQ.

Brandon Chauvaux

Good food and good friends! The staff was amazing and very very friendly!

Tanya Basulto

Friendly staff and food was good.. Did not have to wait long

Ramin Shahriari

Great and delicious, same as always. Whenever we have guests that want to try a southern food, our go-to is City BBQ, because the quality is great. And access is easy.

Jessie Woodyard

Terrific place for BBQ. The sauce bar is great, so many varieties to try. Very friendly staff and great overall service.

Michael DeHaan

While I'm generally interested in NC BBQ, I'm willing to give other places a chance. The pork here is incredibly greasy and smokey tasting, and I could not finish it.

Charley Westphal

Good, but not as good as other local bbq...out of the pulled pork sandwich, ribs, green beans and banana pudding, the green beans were my fave.

Thomas Viñas

Top notch place. Get the More Cowbell and regret nothing. Definitely try all of their sauces.

Shelbe Holben

Always a favorite! Amazing southern BBQ without the hassle of going to downtown Raleigh, the food is delicious and keeps me coming back!

Sarah Edmondson

The More Cowbell sandwich is always on point. Their offerings are yummy. The only issue we had was the flies. We ate inside and we still defending our food from them.

Patty Haley

We go every Tuesday for Rib Bone Tuesday, Ribs are 40 % off. Love their collard greens, green beans fresh cut french fries. All their food is delicious. Very friendly, everyone always has a welcoming smile. They even have a Rewards program.

Lino Roberto

Love going here. Food is always on point. Great customer service.

Ruth Corder

Great place to eat outside. Great food

Tamillia Davis

I order the beef brisket, corn pudding, & bake beans. The beans was an little strong for my taste but I in up getting another corn pudding. I really enjoyed the corn pudding & the brisket was wonderful.

Nick Overby

I love City BBQ!!!! I got hooked on their brisket so bad I had to buy a smoker and make my own! Every time I'm working in the area I make sure to eat lunch there! I eat there so much, they know me by my name when I come in!

Kelvin Wright

Have been to this location multiple times. A great cross section of smoked meats. Love the Cowbell sandwich. The sides at ok, my favorite is the baked beans. As with most spots the banana pudding is the generic variety, which to us old fashioned banana pudding fans is a vast disappoint which is why this is a 4 star review. Any place advertising banana pudding that isn't the old fashion way automatically gets a demerit for getting my hopes high. Yes, I love banana pudding, and those who do, understand my dwelling on this subject.

Chris Poole

Update- I have tried the new Mac n cheese with bacon and it’s much better. Glad to see the business is watching reviews and taking time to comment and hear what the customers like and what they think needs some improvement. Great job City BBQ! I have been here three times now and I’m addicted to this place. The pulled pork is good. First time I ate it without bbq sauce and it was good. Second and third time I tried with sauce and it was even better. The Mac n cheese isn’t the greatest but it’s good. I’d definitely eat here over and over. The wait times can be kind of long but I can see why and I’d rather wait for good food than go to some place like Cookout and get some slop on a bun that tastes like cat food. Wait in line, try this place out. You’ll be happy you did.

Wes Swan

Never disappoints. Don't go expecting a typical "NC Joint"- kinda Vibe. This place is more about selection and trying different styles and fixins'. Yes they have pulled pork but they also have so much more. I recommend smoked turkey sandwich if you've never had it.

alyson Le

Great service. I'm not really into bbq so I shouldn't be judging. Atmosphere is casual and cozy.

Jason Jesrani

I love this place one of the best in the country

The place was clean and the cooks talked to you about the sauce. Meats were hit or miss, chicken was great, Turkey was great, sagauge was bad (might have been over cooked and dry), the brisket was good needed flavor. The sides were good for the most part. Cornbread and good but dry. We got the 60$ family plate and was lunch hour and we still got the meal right away. Overall a great experience. 4stars

Fantastic brisket and ribs, several choices of sauce. Brush fire sauce is sweet and spicy with a hint of smoke. This is one of the best "traditional" BBQ places around, for anyone who grew up outside North Carolina. The lines are often long, but the service is speedy and friendly. Definitely one of my go-to places.

In the land of Carolina BBQ, it’s always nice to have a reliable BBQ joint. I understand they are a chain, but if Carolina style isn’t your thing, City always has good food and sides. They have a good outdoor seating area at this location as well, partly shaded and umbrellas on the ones that aren’t under the overhang.

Great fresh food.. brisket falls apart it's been cooked so long. Lots of sauce choices. I definitely will be back.
