I ordered from UberEats. I got the 1 pound Chipotle BBQ which came with 2 sides, 4 hamburger buns, and cornbread. In the app, it also comes with 4 oz of sauce. For my sides, I ordered slaw and baked beans. It came with cornbread and 4 hamburger buns. I am constantly searching for a good peach cobbler so I ordered that too. That came with whipped cream and it served 2. The slaw and baked beans were good. The brisket in the beans, however, was tough. As was the BBQ. No sauce was included. The BBQ could have been saved had it come with that container of sauce. The peach cobbler - didn't eat it. I'm not a huge fan of biscuit type cobbler. That's what this was. I prefer pie crust type cobbler. But the type of crust wasn't the issue. The issue was the big blob of BURNED cobbler in the 1 pint container. See photo. I tasted it just to see if it would be *candied*. Nope. It was burned. It tasted burnt. It smelled burnt. Unfortunately, I'm a super taster so every part of the dish that the burned parts touched also tasted burned. And it wasn't on top. It was wedged in there. Wasted $6 plus tax and 15% tip. Overall, not pleased.

Got some brisket, collards, mac and cheese, etc. My usual, because this place has great food. Opened my bag - there was cornbread. I didn't order cornbread because I don't really like cornbread. I prefer rolls. Anyway, I got home and decided to give one a try. OMG That.Was.The.Best. No more rolls.

I don’t recommend any of their desserts or sides, but they have some of the best brisket and ribs in the city. On Tuesdays ribs are like $1.50 each or something like that. It’s pretty awesome I do hope for that they are able to get grass fed and local meat onto the menu with whatever necessary price increases gladly accepted in order to support local farming And black owned farms in the area.

BBQ restraunt near the mall. The food was pretty good. Big selection of BBQ to choose from. Had a number of sides, too. The wait for the food was very long. I'm not sure if a little under staffed. Wasn't rally that busy. Service was ok! Overall, it's not a bad BBQ reatarunt to try.

What a treat this place. The barbecue and chicken were delicious, hand torn with choice of sauces!!! Texas toast was soft and smooth, while the corn pudding was nicely done. Brisket was a little dry but good while the Mac and cheese was a good filler but not your favorite aunt good, but not bad. Overall, it's a little pricey. However, I would dine again as I thought the food was good. A small increase in overall portion size would justify price. Nevertheless, I would still recommend this place to anyone looking for a good quality restaurant with barbecue, chicken, turkey, brisket, and fixings.

Enjoyed this place for a quick lunch on last Saturday! I had the pulled chicken with Mac & Cheese and cornbread! I would definitely need to check this spot out again. This was only my second time eating here. The food could have been hotter but it was good! I really appreciate the staff putting my bun and meat separately. There is nothing like getting home and having a soggy bun! I totally forgot to get coleslaw but there is always next time!

Well the City Barbeque in Durham NC is outstanding, no extraordinary. About a month ago I sat down with Stephen with manager explaining we were having a birthday party and I explained what we needed and he made a lot of suggestions to improve what we wanted. Well the party was yesterday and the food was the hit of the party. The barbeque was outstanding, chicken on the bone, sausage, the the baked beans with the brisket, Mac and cheese and the hush puppies. Then Stephen added 4 different barbecue sauces, rolls and everything we needed. Stephen said corporate headquarters sends out pins but I say he needs a bonus, raise or even a promotion to where he travels around the country teaching customer service. It was because of Stephen did we go to City Barbecue. We have 4 barbecue places closer to us but we traveled over 30 minutes because of the excellent service and food.

Been there on a weekend for lunch. We were six in number. So we ordered a lot of food. They have lots of sauces. The decor is cute and rustic. Me being a vegetarian on that day, I tried cole slaw, potato salad, fried okra, corn pudding and peach cobbler. All tasted great. Will come back for sure 😊

We ordered takeout for our Sunday family dinner. We tried almost everything. We had smoked turkey, brisket, BBQ, ribs, smoked sausage, chicken, mac n cheese, greens, cole slaw, baked beans with brisket and corn bread. Everything was very good. I ordered several family meals and that will allow you to try different foods. We also got the sampler. We enjoyed everything. I didn't get to take pictures of everything. The pack everything neatly and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was ready on time. We loved cornbread so you may want to order extras.

This was my first time eating at City Barbeque and I'll definitely be going back! The NC BBQ and slaw was perfect. The atmosphere was laid-back and pleasant. You order your food at the counter and then it's brought to your table. Everyone who worked there was super nice. The only drawback for me was there wasn't any beer. I got the only Coors light and that was it. Of course, alcohol is required to enjoy this Durham gem.
