REVIEWS OF City Barbeque and Catering IN South Carolina

Johnathan Gilbert

This place will never get old to me. I could eat here daily and never get tired of it.

Lauren Sims

Soooooo good! Just went for the first time. Food came quickly, staff was awesome, food was delicious, pulled pork and chicken breast were really tender. There were a variety of BBQ sauces, kids meals were plentiful and sides were outstanding. Nice atmosphere and very affordable. We will definitely be back!

LaNetta Alexander

Didn't have time for pictures today... too hungry. I enjoyed pulled pork, vinegar slaw and fresh cut fries. Ate in but took some banana pudding home. Everything was good! Very nice wait staff and the location by IUPUI was doing a strong business. Try and bourbon BBQ sauce

Clint Mullins

Great food, but a lil pricey

Ernest Berman

Good BBQ and reasonable prices. Side dishes are good too

Donovan Gibbs

Gotdamn that's some good BBQ!!

Nicholas Pierce

Good flavors, not friendly on the wallet.

Kimberly Toomer

We ordered from City Barbeque through Door Dash. The food was delicious but initially they forgot our barbecue sauce. When I called, they actually sent someone to our house from the restaurant to deliver the sauce! This is far above and beyond customer service we have received dealing with restaurants through Door Dash. Everything tasted amazing!

Nicole O'Sullivan

Delicious and quick to go service, I would definitely go back!

Taylor Utt

Overpriced. Tried it catered and loved it. Let down when I actually ate at the restaurant.

Claudia Komaromi

The place needs some cleaning....the meat was good.

Caramel Candie

I love City Barbecue. I must stop in anytime I visit Indy!

Kimberly DeJesus

OMG! That day gone chocolate cake is phenomenally sinful. Best cake I've had in Charlotte and that's on top of the delicious barbecue. So, so, so good.

Jeff H

Pulled pork was very good. Decided to try different sides. Corn pudding and collards were both delicious! I will be back.

John Floyd

Trash worst brisket I ever tasted all fat won't be back.

william toomer

Some of best customer service I've experienced. Manager on duty for our doordash order on 9/6 drove to our house to deliver the sauce that was missing from our order. It didn't hurt that the food was great. We'll definitely order from here again.

Cameron Howie

Awsome BBQ. Plentiful servings.

Kelsey Greene

I believe the employee who helped my friend and I is named José. He was extremely friendly and helpful. Our food was brought out super fast and was amazing! José allowed us to sample the chipotle rib meat which was so delicious and I ended up purchasing it the very next day. This was the BEST experience I’ve ever had at any restaurant, including any City Barbeque. My friend had never been before and now she is a loyal customer (she wanted to eat at City Barbeque again the very next day on our journey home). This was of course because the food was so delicious, but also because of the fantastic customer service that was shown by your employee, José. I hope I am getting his name correct, it is the name on the receipt, but I want to make sure that he knows how much we appreciate the service that was shown to my friend and I. I noticed that he walked around and checked on the other customers as well which was commendable. I can’t wait to visit the Ballantyne City Barbeque when I am in the area again!

Joey Montebello

Great experience. Food was very tasty and hot. Friendly servers and smiling faces. Definitely will be going back. Brisket is great and the burnt ends were too notch.

john burnett

Absolutely love this place. Wonderful food, beer and great service.

Markus C.

A pretty big place near IUPUI. Went on Sunday before labor day and since it was our first time they gave us free drinks for all 4 in the party. Order at the counter and they call name when done. The Turkey was moist and tender and really good. Brisket was good but crust was salty, pulled chicken was mild and tasty. Collards very good and corn pudding good. Cornbread was ok. Lots of good food. Would come back again. Mac & cheese was ok.


Excellent service, nice food

Dominick Houston

Im not the type of person that orders $5 desserts but I seen peach cobbler so i took a risk that I wont regret. Probably the best ive had! Brisket was almost perfect everyrhing else was OK.

Mike Dennis

The beef brisket was amazingly awesome and delicious!

Kyle Watase

Wide variety of meats on the menu with different portion options. Received food in less than 5 mins and then I got lost in the sauce. "I'll be back"

Mily Vargues

Great price/taste to eat out with entire family

Bill Gates

Every time we visit indy, this a spot we try to hit. Always delicious.

Peter Yacavone

I have always had really good experiences at this location. staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcome, and the food is always fresh and authentic!

Shafter W.R. Baldwin III

Very delicious food ribs were falling off the bone and moist.

Harry Murphy

They got order correct at this location

Carrol Ostendorf

A good experience. The staff was helpful and kind. The food was good. I had the beef brisket tacos, which were good. We came on a night they were holding a charity event for the organization that we adopted our rescue dog from, and we really appreciate their support for the community.


The entrance to City BBQ is to the left of the building you can access off of 10th Street or 11th Street going west

Jasmine Woods

I always leave this place full & satisfied! The service is quick, everyone is nice and the food is to die for. I have nothing but good to say here! Keep up the good work guys.

Duane Kord

We ordered online when we ordered they said 5 mins. We we're expecting a longer wait time but welcomed the fast service. We hurried up and got the kids in the car and drove straight there. We live 10 mins away so I figured the order would be ready. When I walked in the lady said I was just about to call you - we don't have brisket. Do you want us to substitute? It will take us 30 mins to make it... What?!?! A BBQ place that doesn't have brisket ready at 6pm on a Friday??? Even though my order was to be ready in 5min you hadn't called at 10min to tell me. I wouldn't have rushed to get kid my 4 kids out the door to get there. I could have taken my time and got brisket and everything would have been fine. In fact I would have rated 5 stars!! THE FOOD WAS GREAT! The ribs were so so, but the pulled pork was amazing. So were the hush puppies and the bread!

Ian Godfrey

Decent chain barbecue. Friendly service. Extremely overpriced for what it is. Ok portion size but not for the cost.

Charita johnson

Food good but bri pricey.

David Beam

Unbelievable customer service experience while having a business lunch. Another customer accidentally took my order of burnt ends. It was the last order before they ran out. The staff responded immediately, rectified the situation and made sure that I was happy. They definitely went out of there way here and it was unexpected. Sometimes I feel that customer service is dead today but this restored my faith that some still value taking care of people. Well done and thank you!

Shaked Bar-Tal

The food is delicious I highly recommend the roasted turkey. The staff at City Barbeque is very friendly.

E Murdock

I huge fan of the parmesan ceasar salad...

brett ballou

Great food as usual.

Lane Hatcher

The service is always great at City Bar B Q. I ordered the pulled pork but received what I believe was pulled chicken or turkey. It was tasty but not what I ordered. The peach cobbler is really delicious..

Esther Lopez

The food was good.

Anne Sluder

Friendly, great tasting food for a good price. I like using their app to get discounts!

K Foster

Ribs were tuff and baked beans weren't done! Paid $20.00 at lunch time for pulled chicken and three bones and baked beans! The meat should fall off the bones.

Joy Minich

They bagged up my pickup order. So nice, they give enough food. I had it for 2nd meal. I just wish they would get rib tips.

David Miller

Wonderful variety and some favorites that I haven't had for awhile!

K Hewawasam

This place is amazing. My husband and I decided to stop here and get food to go on the way home (we live like 4-5 mins away so definitely no reduction in quality or anything) and got the $25 family meal. We chose pulled pork, mac & cheese, baked beans w/ brisket pieces, and Texas toast. It came with cornbread and our choice of cups of sauces on the side. Everything was super tasty and the pulled pork melts in your mouth. The sweeter sauce is the best and the hot sauce is great too. The macaroni was fine, nothing crazy, but the beans were perfect. We will definitely be going back.

Debbie Brown

More expensive than i thought. Food was excellent though.

Jessica Richardson

We are very new to Indiana and decided to go down to the Canal Walk and decided to have lunch and when searching for close restaurants the City Barbecue popped up it is within short walking distance from the Canal and let me tell you it is definitely worth the walk! From the moment you walk through the door it smells amazing the food is made from scratch and smoked on site! The pulled pork is perfect without any sauce and the collard greens Omg!! The Collard Greens are absolutely to die for!!! They are the best greens I've ever had at a restaurant, they reminded me of home! Along with the kettle brewed sweet tea!!! The staff was absolutely amazing and very welcoming and friendly they went out of their way to explain everything to us and gave us samples of the meat and the collard greens too that's how I fell in love with this place!! It is definitely my new favorite Barbecue place I will definitely be back!!

Barbara Martinez

Ribs were nice and tender,that's our "staple" meat. Love the cornbread!! Brisket is my favorite. The loaded fries is the boyfriend's favorite-cheesy and lots of bacon. Staff is friendly,they recognize us too,that's how often we go. Nothing like eatin some ribs and watching some sports!!

Deanna Jacobs

Great food. Bbq sauce bottles were sticky. No butter or honey butter for cornbread

Tina M

Best BBQ I've ever eaten!!


Their brisket is delicious

Dee Dee

All i can say is "WOW"!!! Sorry, I can't talk right now... I'm too busy enjoying my food, I'm sure you get the point. Just come on down and enjoy some too!


This is some GOOD food! The pulled chicken was so moist it really didn't need any of the 9 barbecue sauces, the Texas toast was the right amount of crunch on the outside and softness on the inside. THEE

Matthew Kodatt

Fantastic barbeque and friendly staff. Killer pulled pork and ribs. Potato salad and beans were excellent. Peach habanero sauce was exceptional.

Brian Bowers

Great Food and Service.

Jason Maderski

Outstanding BBQ and friendly staff!

Jim Hytken

Super barbecue with plenty of choices. One of the best in the city! Decent portions and very flavorful BBQ meats make for a winning combination! Very friendly staff.

Megan Rittenhouse

Love the brisket and collard greens. Best greens I have had around town. I also recommend the ribs and pulled pork. Try every sauce, they are all delish.

Teresa Bryant-Parks

OMG, the turkey salad is the bomb! Try it with the apple cider vinegar dressing.

John Vigil

Such a great place to eat. First time here as I am from Colorado, but thank you for the experience in phenomenal food!

Sharease Pattillo

Michael R. Wukitsch

Tried their new mac 'n cheese was excellent..a new item for me to consider on "Rib Day" Tuesdays.

Sara Robinson

Everything was so good both the meats and sides were awesome. I personally recommend the ribs and the corn pudding.

Karen Givens

Awesome Q! Friendly knowledgeable staff. Clean. Ample parking. Inside and outside seating. Clean well stocked restrooms.

Elaine Grauer

I did a catering order with the Ballantyne store for an event at my house. Amanda, in catering, was easy to work with. They also sent two people to serve my guests. Everything was first class and the food was delicious.

Linda Kimbley

A very unique place. Prices are affordable!

Jordan Powell

Turkey sandwich was fantastic!

Oye Ajigboye

Wow wow and delicious

Donnie Kilgo

I took my sister out for Mother's Day outing and she loved it!

Susan Gont

Nothing special. Both husband and I had the same opinion. Food came out room temperature. Cole slaw was not favorful at all. Wish I could give it five stars because the staff and waiter we're very sweet.

Bradley Grimm

Best brisket I have ever had this was the most amazing food I have ever had they really are the best bbq in Charlotte

Roslyn Adkins

Their ribs, baked beans and potatoe salad are the best in Indianapolis. They do not sale rib tips and I love tips but after eating a half slab of their ribs, I do not want any tips. Can not add photos because I ate my food to fast. The customer service was great.

Jesse Zellar

This place is consistently amazing. Staff is always incredible, and food is always hot and tasty

Cole Lombardo

Amazing food. Ribs are fantastic and their cake is phenomenal!

Larry Schierl

Awesome BBQ ! The cashier was a snot...she obviously had somewhere else she wanted to be. I will return.


The best part of the barbeque stuff here is they are not strongly seasoned meat themselves and you can grab whatever sauce you want with the meat and however much you want. I tried the sampler platter and it was very satisfying. Will revisit again.

Brian Estes

Awful:: price to much for food tastes changed

Kenneth Simms

Always make a stop when we are in the Charlotte area. Our favorite place to get NC bbq. My wife prefers the brisket. I love it all.

Sabrina F Salters

The mac and cheese taste like Kraft

Robert Harris

City Barbeque has very good barbecue I like their variety of sauces that they had the macaroni and cheese was just okay need more flavor or cheese wasn't thick enough vinegar slaw didn't have a whole lot of flavor to it but the BBQ beans we're good this place it had good barbecue. I do go to a lot of barbecue places. This is not my favorite one but it does have good barbecue.

Eric Martin

Great service and staff!

Jacob Hampton

Probably the best BBQ I've ever had. Don't let the price scare you, their portions are awesome.

Leticia Leggett

Always consistent with excellent sevice and delicous barque!! That is why we always go knowning its going to be great!!!

James Elmer

Great food and great staff would recommend to everybody

Josef Laposa

Slaw and handcuffs fries were better than average. The half rib plate was edible, but average

Stuart Kocher Jr.

Got a little bit of everything, as documented here. Everything was pretty good. The turkey got them the 5 stars though. Oh my goodness was it fire!

Nakaisha Jones

Best barbecue I have ever eaten..

Tracy Johnson

Cashier had a lengthy discussion with an employee prior to directing attention to our group for placing order. Salad ordered w/no onions ... came out w/onions and a lot of the lettuce was rusty. Dining area was not very clean. Otherwise everything was great

Jay K. R.

Food is always great!

Jarred Kight

I have been to this location a few times , and for the most part it is OK , but i was there this past week and the food was terrible. I ordered my usually pick two meats and had the brisket and smoked turkey. The brisket was so over cooked it fell apart and crumbled on my plate, and was so dry. The turkey was also dry and rubbery. Not sure what happened , but who ever was running the pits that day needed some training on how to BBQ. I liked this location over the greenwood location , but now im not sure if i will ever go back to both.

Cortney Bazemore

Wonderful food and fast. We really enjoyed the City Sampler Meal. Perfect for 2.

Melissa Ragan

Delicious food, staff is very friendly and helpful.

Kaye Howi

The food is sooo good!! I had the smoked half chicken and Mac n Cheese. The smoked chicken is good on its own but if you want to try their sauce, go with the bourbon sauce. I don't know why it isn't bottled and sold on its own. It has a lil heat, smoky, savory, sweet and tangy. It's a smooth wonderful flavor and it increased the yum factor of the smoked chicken by a factor of ten. Just yummy food. The Mac was perfection, creamy and cheesy. I can't wait to eat more food from here!

Gary Sharp

Awesome food at a awesome price!

Tiffany Andrews

City Barbecue is top of the list for our Southern experience meals. Love the casual atmosphere and as for the food big tick. Always have mixture of 2 or 3 meats/chicken and big selection of sides (hush puppies are great). Also the ribs are very good.Great selection of sauces. Never leave the place hungry. Big shout out to the big guy (dont know his name.) who is always around the tables . He is a great ambassador for your business.

Jonay Culp

Has a wonderful quality of food and different sauces and different types of food to try from and you can try everything before you buy it it is amazing.

Wes Burrell

Excellent atmosphere and best Bbque I’ve tried!! Bourbon bbq sauce beyond the clouds good!! Nice team!

Steven Pierce

The food was wonderful,and the staff was very friendly.


Good amount of food for the money you pay.

HaeWon Jung

Loved the food, people, and ambience

Timothy Western

Ordered via Doordash last evening. First, the Doordash service was absolutely excellent. As for City BBQ, they were out of every meat except brisket and chicken. Took 3 phone calls from the Doordash driver to change my order to what meats they actually have, the first two calls City BBQ had provided the driver the incorrect information. I also received the incorrect sides. NOT ONE CALL FROM City BBQ to apologize or offer some type of discount. Piss poor service.

Yolanda Hines

I love their food....

Kaili Morse

Some of the best bbq in town. They even rotate out their own creative in house made bbq frequently (in addition to their core options that are awesome).

julie Brandson

OMG I could eat her everyday!! Great Food!!

David Krush

You can't go wrong with City BBQ. The wife and I split the sampler platter which included brisket, pulled pork, turkey and a sausage. The brisket is the star of that platter but it all was tasty and juicy. All of their sides are terrific too. The dining room was clean and their staff very friendly.

Anthony Pate

Great food. Good people

Joseph Nance

My wife and I went here for lunch. For a limited time they have burnt ends available. The have a nice portion for their lite lunch special as well. You are able to choose from 4 main meats and 2 side for a little over $8. If you download their app they also give you an additional $5 off your purchase as well.

Don Lee

Really delicious! I throughly recommend this eatery to anyone looking for wonderful, tender loving care down home style bbq!! Go and then go back!

Dana Davidson

Food was good but the staff appeared to be miserable. Not a single person smiled at us during the entire meal.

Chuck Moeschberger

We love to stop here when we visit indianapolis. Great food. Home cookin. Relaxed atmosphere. Family friendly. Clean.

Shelley Carnes

I went to City BBQ for the first time ever last night after I had been hearing rave reviews about their food for quite some time. I wanted to surprise my husband as well since he had never eaten there either. Well, they were out of a lot of stuff. No ribs, no bacon, and no cornbread. However, the staff was not rude about it and were very accommodating. They understood the situation. I called the manager today and spoke with Kendall who apologized and confirmed that my experience was not the norm. She explained they had had a conference with a lot of people that depleted their food supply. I understood completely. I am giving them a 5 star review based on how they handled my situation. Trust me, its not just food quality that makes you want to go back to a restaurant, its also the atmosphere, the staff, the management team, and how they handle the curve balls the restaurant business can throw your way. I am super impressed with the professionalism I encountered by all employees at this location and while this was my first visit- it won't be my last.

Lars Grom

Little pricey. Ribs are tough. Brisket is good


Um, YUM!! The service was fantastic and the food even better. I especially love the sweet bbq sauce and brisket. Definitely won’t regret trying here!

Melanie Calloway

Someone recommended City Barbeque to us. We were quite underwhelmed. We ordered the combo plate which was expensive, small portion, and somewhat dry. Lancaster's is much better but too far from where we live. My husband liked the peach cobbler but that was it. We probably won't go back.

ashley toler

Great food with lots of options! Great service, too! By the time I finished paying, my order was already complete! (Ps. The smashed potatoes were delicious. They should be featured full-time on the menu!) Everything was so good!

Weston Bonczek

Delicious barbeque at an affordable price. I left sated and happy.

Anthony Guzman

Best barbecue in Indy lots of BBQ sauce to choose from

Jonathan Gutierrez

A bit on the pricier side but I love coming. The food always tastes great and City Barbeque fries are some of the best you can get. They're great along with the barbeque sauces and the meats make delicious sandwiches. This particular location gets busy for lunch but it's not too crowded at dinner time. I'm definitely going to keep coming back.

Jackee Hill

The burnt ends are PHENOMENAL!!! The corn pudding is good too. #MyGoTo

Andrew Moss

The whole team was fantastic. The quality of the customer service is outstanding. From the moment you walk in, you are greeted like family, and that’s just the beginning. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and go the extra mile to provide excellent service. From bringing out free samples to the table next to us because they were new to the City Barbeque experience (as they did for us our first time) to offering suggestions the entire ordering process doesn’t feel rushed but rather part of the experience and atmosphere. My order is always correct, hot, and ready quickly. The dining area is always clean and welcoming, and I love the pick your sauce station. The lemonade is a family favorite, and it’s really good by itself or mixed with Mountain Dew... seriously, try it mixed with Mountain Dew. These people are awesome and I couldn’t ask for a better time when I’ve got the need for some good barbeque!

Indiana Homestead

So so. A bit too smokey flavored for me. Servers were great but the gentleman preparing had an attitude of pure laziness. I found it a bit comical that he even showed up to work.

Kelly Galligan

Great service and delicious meal


Great smoky flavor and plenty of food!

Sherry Nelson

Great BBQ !!!They Catering And Service!!❤❤❤Our First Trip Here And Food Was All Soooo Good❤❤❤We Even Got Free Deserts!!!

Don Huff

Best pulled pork I've had in a while

Sam Chupp

This lovely BBQ place has the atmosphere of an indoor cookout. You can order in person or through the app, and you can sample any of the side items to see if they are to your liking. I had the brisket, but I tried many of the sides as well. The baked beans, macaroni and cheese, hush puppies, cornbread and peach cobbler were all top notch. The brisket was melt-in-your-mouth delicious and the panoply of sauces was amazing!

just me

Amazing. Delicious food. Helpful staff. Wonderful sauces. Highly recommend.

Blackout Legion

Food was excellent. I may have came in after a rush because most of the tables were dirty.

Sean Hogan

It is delicious! The food was cooked just right. The people who work there are very nice, the atmosphere of the place is awesome. I recommend coming here and checking it.

LaRell Humphries

Need to cook ribs, chicken & sausages a little longer, ribs not done enough, chicken still a little pink by the bone & sausages are to tough

Seazun Tyler

I only go herr for they banana pudding and it is always delicious

Brandon W

Solid lunch menu at a decent price. Fast service with a clean dining area. I have never been disappointed going here. The brisket is always super juicy and the sides are great. Can get crowded during lunch but they seem to serve really quick. Has an outside sitting area.

Milicent Wright

I love this place‼️ Deluxe comfort food. ALWAYS good service even when the food isn’t the best. Kind people that know their product. I recommend this place and that says a lot! An asset to all the Downtown neighborhoods

D Givens

Bbq is really good!! Would recommend

Marsha Paitsel

Great bbq and sides. Quick service.

Jon Harsin

We placed our order and waited at least 10 minutes while they kept filling orders placed after ours. Finally I asked girl if they fill orders in order that they was placed. She then finally turned around and asked guy that was filling orders about our food. Seems they have our food to someone after us. After waiting several more minutes she gave me part of our order. She gave me a red card with a number and said that they would bring out to us. After another 10 minute wait i went up to see where the rest of our food was. This place is a joke. Way over priced for the service, quality and quantity of food. This was our first and last trip to city BBQ.

Keith Alrick

I got the City Sampler (Beef Brisket, Pulled Pork, Sausage, Turkey, 2 sides and Texas Toast. Was a little disappointed in the brisket which hurts because that should be the highlight of any BBQ meal. The sausage was actually really good and the sides were good (I got the baked beans and corn pudding). Probably deserves another try, might have just been an off day.

Bernard Wilson

Order as much or as little as you want. Dinner or by the pound. A bunch of different sauces to use. Food was really good.

Candee Fast

Great atmosphere, eat for affordable price, execelent service

Shawna Hallworth

Very friendly and fast service. Food was amazing. Would go back again tomorrow. Thank you


Good food, good service

BG Malamut

absolutely spectacular. You may have to wait, but it's worth it. Great pulled pork. Ribs were perfect except a bit too blackened for my taste. Only thing I'd suggest is to swap out a sauce and make one a little less sweet and thinner

Tonique Smith

The City Barbeque was okay. I can appreciate the signs to let customers know in advance if you are out of a certain selection. If management is aware of a popular dish or meat item, how much trouble is it to prepare more the next day. That way your satisfying your customers need and not leave them disappointed if they can't come in first thing in the AM. With that said, the brisket was overcooked (dry) and my husband didn't care for the hot links.

Brittany Caudill

I like all the food other than the pulled pork. I always find it dry. But, overall good food.

Lou Noujaim

Came here for the first time today after passing by many times and gotta say I was extremely happy with the BBQ and especially the friendliness and warm nature of the staff that took care of us. I had the brisket lunch which was tasty, flavorful, and not too lean, not too fatty... It was juuuusst right.

Arthur Thomas

I am a big fan of City BBQ. So this place was no exception. Great food. There is some hustle and bustle at night. It was cold and they had the extra room closed, so it was a little tight for the crowd.


Tasty food, but I wish they had more vegetarian options.

Bitsy Ramsey

They really have delicious food! Everyone there was friendly! Nothing better than to see everyone with a smile! They made all of us feel Welcome!!! We were a large group too! A lot of other places don't act to happy when we come but they did. There was almost 20 in our group at that!

barbara Paulson

Best bananna pudding ever. Beef brisket wonderful.

T Gailes

Wil rocks!!! Great service; fast

tavaris Stephens

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The ribs were tender and had great flavor.

Preston Guillot

Pulled pork was great and the price is right. It’s counter service only, but I’ll gladly bus my own food for this kind of quality and price.

Vanessa Burgos-Byrd

Food was good but there weren't any forks and someone was sleeping on the patio. Tons of flies

Diana Hedgers

Service was great and food was good

Donnice Smith

It wasn't bad, it just didn't have any 'kick ' in the flavor of the food. I ordered the breast and wing (came with Texas toast) , pulled pork, baked beans and fries. Bland to say the least.. and the not worth the prices they charged. Everything is al la carte.. The sauce bar was my highlight.

Judy Smith

This restaurant came to my job as a new vendor. They have only brisket, pulled pork, and pulled chicken sandwiches. Lunch is 12 - 2 and I went about 12:45. They had no buns so there goes the sandwich. They weren’t knocking off anything price wise so you just got naked meat. I paid $2 for. Side of mac n cheese and got 3 1/2 small slices of brisket and an ice cream scoop of stove top mac

marlon h

Very good. The cashier was kind of dry. But everyone else's attitude fixed my experience

Jonte Mcbride

The food was nasty tasteless... and the mac and cheese is like kfc mac and cheese. It isnt real cheese

Cheryl Ray-Williams

Great experience. Friendly staff and food is always delicious. I enjoy going to the IUPUI location.

Joan Granny

City BBQ catered my nieces wedding. It was delicious! I loved the green beans and bacon, the pulled pork, and the BBQ sauce. It was all good.

Ben Cornwell

We frequent this location for dine-in and to-go food. I have always had a great experience here and recommend it to all my colleagues that live in the area. If you want great BBQ for a great price, this is the place for you! Will definitely be back soon!

Kedly Burns

City Barbeque catered my wedding this past May! I can't thank them enough for the amazing food and service! The food was hot and fresh, the set up was beautiful. I couldn't have been more pleased. The staff was so kind! They really spoiled us on our special day. Big thanks to City Barbeque! You made our wedding that more special! I still have friends and family ask where you guys are located and if you have locations near them so they can go eat there!

Dave Dearth

Never had a bad meal from here yet. Great food Friendly and helpful staff Clean building Easy parking and building access

Nate Jones

Went to City Barbeque on Sunday with my son. The meat had good flavor but we weren't impressed with the sides. The fries were fresh and hot, macaroni and cheese was very plain with no taste, the greens were salty and the potato salad taste more like mash potatoes with a hint of potato salad taste. The banana pudding was good but I had better. I was expecting more after spending $48 for two people. We both ordered two meats with two sides, a drink and one desert (banana pudding). Won't be doing this again

Amy Lovejoy

Favorite bbq place in Charlotte, love the brisket and desserts.

Sarah Puls

The food has been great every time I go. Highly recommend the hush puppies and brisket. You can mix and match to get exactly what you want!

Carla McIntosh

Yum! Really good barbeque. We all had a different protein and they were all delicious. We shared the fried pickles which were very good as well. Lots of sauces to choose from to appease all tastes!

Jerry Anthomy

I had the two meat plate and the portions were generous, I had the brisket and ribs. My beautiful bride had the Turkey, the restroom was very clean and the employees were very kind and helpful for our first time visit. It was so good that we did go back the very next day to eat there again. I give it a five star and then some!!!

Montrial Harrell

Great food and service.


The young girl taking the order was amazing.. had brisket tacos nice taste but a little dry but with the condiments it's good.. wife really liked the brisket but it's broken up not sliced. Mac and cheese was better than a lot of other restaurants. Didn't care for any of the sauces but not terrible by any means..

Eric Robinson

Outstanding food. Shared the Judge's Sampler. Personal favorites were the ribs, brisket, potato salad and cornbread.

Mylissa Compton

I've always got a great meal from City BBQ. Today I got my usual; brisket on bun, macaroni & cheese and the collard greens. My BBQ sauces are bourbon and brushfire. I usually mix them together for my own unique blend of sauce. They have a nice variety of sauces I'm sure you'll find something you'll like. The last time I was here they were sold out of the collard greens. Hmmm they must be good or something

Kole Mason

This was my first visit and I plan to return. I had the burnt ends sandwich - it was delicious and perfectly cooked. The restuarant was clean and the service was fast. They also offered a wide variety of sauces for different tastes. Highly recommend.

Brenda Applegate

Ribs not as tender as in the past. New cook??

Shannon Rice

Very tasty. Great for the whole family.

Konstantin Vulfov

Good food good service wish more cities had it. If you agreed to have more City BBQs write your own comment about it.

Ashley Finkley

If your checking these reviews because you’re indecisive on a good BBQ place look no further!!!!!!!!! The food is amazing here, so tasty! My family and I recently moved to the area and we visit city bbq quite often and every single time the food and customer service is top notch. I can’t get enough of the chipotle rib sandwich on Texas toast!!

Tarang Gupta

City is a nice family style restaurant. I recommend their barbecue to all. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

Jo Applewhite-Strickland

best sweet tea i have tasted in a very long time and the staff is amazing.

Vilma Rosario

This is my first time in Indiana and in this restaurant nice excent experience.

Steven Favory

Salmon was incredible. Perfectly smoked.

Peter Martina

The barderque pork was some of the best I've had in a long time and the price was right on.

Felicia Jenkins

City Bbq sells good tasting food, sides are priced right, but catering is a bit expensive. Once I tried to resolve a pricing issue and it was not resolved.


Excellent ribs and brisket(reminded me of home-TX). Friendly and efficient staff


Chicken, pulled pork and ribs are incredible. The brisket isn't the best I've ever had but not surprising. The Carolinas aren't brisket country. But the food here is awesome. Don't read this wrong. It's the best bbq we've found in the area.

Miss ShawnaBoo

The food there is awesome. Some of the best barbeque I've had in a long time.

Katie Smith

Decently priced and quick food. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite. Plenty of sauces to test out too.

Qamar Shafeek

Pretty good meat. Great sauce. Staff is AAA+. They give you plenty of samples to help make up your mind.

Cory Castor

First off, I haven’t had ribs in years. It’s been so long, I’ve forgot how they taste. I am beyond blessed to have had broken the “ribs dry spell” here at City Barbeque and and Catering. Everyone working today was smiling and friendly, the food was incredible. I’m going to buy stock, and probably be back tomorrow for lunch. - Cory Be OOTO! Out Of The Ordinary

Denice Harris

The service was great at this location. The food was delicious and you get a lot for the price. Dine in and you can try several different sauces.

Kim Co

Wonder ribs falling off the bone. Multiple sauces. I loved the original sauce. Everything smelled so good and so many choices on menu from roasted chicken to smoked brisket and fried corn. I had a wonderful pulled pork sandwich while I waited for my slab of to go ribs. I loved that staff didn't use the crowd due to the holiday as a excuse for lackluster performance. Everything was CLEAN, COOKED TO PERFECTION AND ACCURATE AND SERVED WITH S SMILE. Unlike the some of these so called king of ribs. I loved City ribs and can't wait to return again!

hannah Peiffer

Great atmosphere. They offer a large variety of different sauces and the food is phenomenal.

Tim Miller

Great meats! Great sauces too!

Jonny Sweeny

Love the food, staff are great, very friendly.

William. Sollenberger

Love this place so much. Why did you make the sides more expensive tho ?

Teri Hazel

The beef brisket was awesome.

Marcia Lahens

There is no table service, but rather counter ordering. Keeping in mind this is my opinion, based on my preferences, the pulled pork was okay, but not remarkable. It was a bit on the dry side. The baked beans with brisket (where was the brisket?) were sweet, but the overall flavor was rather single-noted. We asked for crispy fries, but they were on the more limp side, but they had a nice potato-y flavor. Will we return? Probably not...there are better options elsewhere.

Ann Brown

Enjoyed the atmosphere. Lots of barbeque sauces to mix and match. I did not like the Mac-n-cheese; however, the Gumbo was very tasty. Beef brisket gets two thumbs up along with the pulled pork. Loads of food, nice portions. Lots of doggy boxes on the way out.

Phillip Amburn

My favorite barbecue in Charlotte North Carolina... they're not trying to serve just Carolina q but doing the best from the barbecues they tried around the country... They're pulled pork has a memphis-style rub on it so you give a crust, their brisket copy Blacks from Central Texas... Great sides!!! I would and have recommended and have taken people to see barbecue when I was in Charlotte.

Larry Griffin-Sledge

One of my favorites....always grade A in my book!

Tom Bowers

The food is good, but the atmosphere is quite noisy. Not a place for a quiet conversation.

Adoree DeLuca

Omg! Now I've had some pretty amazing bbq in my life and all over this country but this place here is AMAZING!!!!! From the secret pulled rib (not on the menu) to the variety of different bbq sauces (including an apple bbq sauce) EVERYTHING was truly excellent! The homemade mac n cheese was actually creamy... The turkey was better than my grandma's on Thanksgiving... They have pulled chicken that melted in your mouth. Even my 8 year old son ate all of his beef brisket. You have to try won't be sorry! We will be back!!!!

Chris Headford

The best place in town to get bbq, hands down!! You won’t be disappointed!!!

Arik Scott

Decent BBQ, very reasonable prices!

Richard Street

This was my first time trying City Barbecue, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. Their barbecue isn't as good as mine, but I have to say it's very good.I really liked the greens, the mac and cheese was good also.

John Sutherlin

Great ribs. Friendly service.

Nicole Forler

My very first visit and I was extremely pleased. I ordered the pick 2...pulled chicken and ribs. The ribs fell off the bone and the chicken was so juicy and flavorful

Damon Dycus

Slap yo momma good!!

Angie Freeman

Would be awesome if they lost the salt bottle for the side Items, Food was way over salted. BBQ was good, Service was Awesome

Debi Ursery

Food is good, the overwhelming smell of meat and smoke over take your senses when you walk in. I am a neat water and that smell was making me feel sick. We took our food to go. My mom got the more cowbell, she said it was quite good. She agreed that the smokey smell is too much, they need to ventilate, the restaurant better. For that reason and the staff wasn't the most professional it gets three stars.

Briauna Wisler

Wow! Ate with three others and no one could complain. Brisket and ribs I can personally say are amazing! Great atmosphere, clean, good customer service, and delicious food. Don't change City BBQ, you're doing everything right.

Mike P

Awesome gumbo and brisket

Ericka Mason

Clean restaurant. Good food. A little pricey but not too high for me to stop going. Friendly staff. In a strip mall so parking lot shared with other establishments.

rock hernandez

Great food

Angela Williams

Amazing BBQ and fried okra. Yummy! Ordered family pack for 6 had leftovers. So good.

Judy Jones

Food good food prices reasonable

Jessie Turk

Friendly staff very fast, they put my to go order for 30 people in 10 minutes or less . Food was excellent, this place

Jeff Thompson

Fast, friendly, and flavorful.

Tina Folson

I have not had a bad experience at this City Barbeque. The service and food was good as well. However, I have only been twice at that location, and once at the one on west Rockville Rd. I will visit again.

Timothy Shaw

The positive: the food was good. The BBQ, being the main point of the restaurant had good flavor and wasn't dry. The collard greens were delicious, some of the best I've had. The variety of sauces we're also quite delicious and on par with the various other places in the city. The meh: the price is al a carte so it can get pricey quick. The BBQ I didn't feel warranted the higher price compared to other places in the area. However, the collard greens did. In other words, the price will limit my regular attendance in favor of a lower cost location. The poor: seating space, for what is apparently a popular place, there didn't seem to be adequate seating to match.

Jes Wells

Its yummy my first time, and I love it

Eric Johnson

That chocolate cake the best so soft and delicious

Nikhil Sanil

The sausage is really good. Not many spots in Charlotte do it right. The place is low key.

Charlotte M

Went yesterday our food was delicious. Except for the fact about an hour later my husband was violently ill. I am a nurse and he has all the signs of food poisoning. He had the turkey which he usually loves at bbq places. Please make sure your meats are refrigerated properly and not out of date you can literally kill someone.

John Bull

Jacked Mac n cheese is the greatest thing ever !

Marc Miller

Outstanding BBQ, especially the chicken and brisket. The okra is particularly fresh and delicious. The cornbread and the Mac and cheese were not up to the same standard; dry and a bit bland. Famous Dave's BBQ sets the standard for cornbread. The City BBQ can't even come close -- but the heavenly meats more than make up for that.

Alistair Oliver-Paull

Good food prepared quickly.

Mike Hartleb

Great food and great service.

Darla Nine

Great tasting food with high energy atmosphere.

Charles Ball

Awesome BBQ and sauces. Absolutely loved it. Please open location in Gastonia!

Perry McMurren

Awesome bbq and sides!!

Jonathan Andrew

Food was good but the experience is pretty much fast food.

Dawnyele W

I had placed an online order valued at ($29) and when I got there a few minutes early (scheduled pickup @ 315pm). The cashier asked for my name. I said my last name and she turned around and asked someone else if that was my food. I said is the coleslaw in the bag she said yes. Well I order the family meal (my 2nd visit) and the way they package the food. You can't tell what's what. My finance took the bag and I bought a drink (which should have been included in the price but it wasn't it). So I didn't think to look at the receipt stapled to the bag (Duh!) nor did the cashier. The biggest take away is that my fiance doesn't eat PORK. We didn't figure that out until half way through. Fries were cold, very salty and soggy. Bad experience but when I called up there I had to explain my story 3 times until I got the manager, Steve. He needs to learn how to listen to the customer. Have a pen and paper ready to take notes. Then resolve this matter. I'm supposed to go back up there to get my order at 6 pm but I really just want my $$ back. Not happy with the service.

Dennis Swender

Food was great, but the prices seemed a little high for the portion sizes. Maybe it was an off day for service sizes? Booth I sat at was broken.


Don’t eat pork ‘ dirty ‘

Macer Boogies

Bit pricey for what you get, wish it was portion a bit better

Robert Mullis

My sweetie always loved it when we get to eat lunch at City barbeque. Happy wife happy life!

Dustin Taylor

Excellent service and great food

Courtney Borman

Best peach cobbler ever!

ruth easley

Gross. The meat without sauce was salty, my fries came cold and greasy. This is NOT hardly the best BBQ in this city- Will NOT Ever waste my money here again based on other ratings!

John Stephens

Pretty good BBQ. Probably a little expensive for the overall experience.

Esther Kasprzyk

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good HMMM I can't wait to go back real BarBQue REAL good I would eat this food in a hat I would eat it on the moon. Not only was the BarBQue AMAZING but the side dishes and drinks were really something special YUM YUM YUM. You haven't lived till you have eaten here.

Bill Radcliff

First time and great bbq. Had the pulled pork, baked beans, and loaded mac & cheese and it was great. Now a go to lunch stop.

Danielle Dillon

Love the food, quick service. Collard greens are on point and the tea is always good

Mike Zaino

Great food and great service! Reasonably priced.

Mike Kavanagh

At first was disappointed no Ribs but the was coming up fresh so I waited. Was satisfied with cleanliness and greeted with respect.

Anita Revilla

This place was awesome! Went there by chance on veterans day and received two free meals! We had no idea it would be free for us we thought we might pay a little but free? It was very tasty and a ton of food!

S. I. G-A

I always come here when I’m in town. So excellent. Go early otherwise things will run out since it’s freshly made and takes 12-18 hours to prepare.

April Montgomery

A must visit place! Ice tea us fabulous too!

Robert W. Terry

The best pulled pork..!!

Tamara Thomas

Food hot and delicious, employees friendly

TJai's Notes

Food was good--the sides top off the meat. Potato salad, corn pudding, sweet tea (add lemonade) and turkey!! Sweet bbq sauce tastes great too!! A little pricey...

Brad Mattson

Good NC BBQ. A little pricey by the time you add a side or two.

Steven Senart

Cant say enough about this place its amazing food is great people are amazing.. Just perfect on all accounts love you guys

Akira German

The absolutely most tender meat I've had in my life. I went to one before and I wasn't too happy with it but this one was definitely exceptional. Some of the sauces was missing a little bit of spice to it but that's easy to Ram up if you want extra spice add some jalapenos. They have fresh ones available to use as you please. The staff was unbelievably sweet and kind. They checked on us a few times to see if we needed anything. We had some chicken that I felt wasn't cooked thoroughly enough, the staff was able to switch it out for turkey with no issues.

jim sladicka

Good bbq..gave samples of meat to try..very popular place

Carla Moore

The best corn pudding I've ever eaten

Blake Myers

Food is absolutely delicious, but in my opinion it's a little expensive. I may be wrong, but it seems like you have to buy sides separately from your meat. Like I said before, the food is delicious though, and the Apple BBQ sauce they have is SO good!!!!

Cheryl Moss

Truly the best BBQ I have ever tasted...desserts are to die for as well...this was my first visit and definitely will not be my last...highly recommend

Michael Bates Sr

Outstanding bbq. Tasted as good as it smelled walking in to the building. Ribs were done perfectly, and their bourbon sauce was excellent

Jay Auzenne

The food was good great customer service.

vannah mobley

I've have gone to other City BBQs, and this has been the best one by far! The staff was super kind & personal. They managed to make the food quickly and it was so fresh and yummy.

judy gessner

Served City Barbeque at a party I gave today for over 30 people. Jose at Ballantyne helped this northern transplant plan the menu, and he was spot on! The pork and chicken were a big hit as well as the vinegar slaw and mac 'n cheese. Look forward to trying more of the menu selections soon.

Colin Wilson

Tried the Brisket to go. Luckily I asked if the bag included sauce. The guy says no, now why would you not say that and tell customer what options they had. On a good note the lady in front asked about the dessert they sitting there and he handed her one to have with her dinner. So maybe I experienced that brain dead moment, worth revisiting. Brisket was excellent.
