The establishment is very nice. I loved the atmosphere there. It was cool, calm, and charming. I thought the staff there were wonderful. The food, man, out of this world! When I am back in town, this is one of the first restaurants I am visiting! Outstanding!

I really enjoyed the smoked turkey salad with potato salad on top. So delicious and unique for a BBQ joint. My husband didn’t think the pulled pork sandwich was anything special compared to most places; however, we thought the hush puppies are some of the best we have had.

We love City BBQ, but this location is the best! They make the most delicious food and the customer service is outstanding. We met with the manager while here for dinner and were extremely impressed by the level of care taken in the preparation of our meal. Highly recommend the brisket, ribs, and chicken tenders, but honestly, everything is delicious. We will be back!

The food is good, truly, but only if they get your order right. My husband and I have gone to this location numerous times since it opened and nearly every time there is some sort of headache-- which is especially frustrating because it's a bit pricey as well. Most often it's when we get to go orders: either an item gets forgotten or we place an online order, get there, and they can't fulfill the order but no one calls to let us know. However, even if you are eating in, be prepared to do a lot of waiting! It's kind of mind-boggling how long it takes them to get through a line and then deliver food to a table. Some of the staff are incredibly nice people but something just doesn't work quite right at this location.

Great food at decent prices. Served fresh and fast. You can see into the kitchen from the line and see the food being carved/plated/served. Most meals I've had there end up costing $10-$12 depending on a drink, for lunch and $12-$14 for dinner. Very reasonable. And the fries travel decently (sturdy, but crisp). Many gluten-free options as well. Very friendly staff. Lots of sauces available for the meat.

Love this place! The chicken is always tasty. The potato salad is worth the whole trip. Real homemade banana pudding. The chocolate cake looks to die for. Did I mention I love this place?

Great prices. Great food. Great service. Cleanliness 4/5. Workers had gloves on. Cashiers were manning the registers instead of touching money and cards and then preparing your food. Food preppers were wearing gloves (one or two hair nets?). Tables needed a little more attention however it was pretty crowded so they focused on addressing the dinner rush which was fine with me. Service 4/5. The cashier was a little spacey and seemed confused, but was kind and forthcoming and didn't have any issues with our order. Food came out fast! Quality 5/5. This food tastes great! So many sauces to choose from. So much smokey goodness (love it) baked right into the meat! Price 5/5. You can buy a rack of ribs at Harris Teeter for $14 - $16.99. And you'll still have to cook them. But here, they'll do that part for you for around $5 more and it'll taste better. Not a bad deal, and the ribs were meaty. Not small like baby carrots. We will definitely be back.

Melt in your mouth delicious bbq! We ordered the beef brisket, pulled pork, collards, potato salad and corn bread. Everything was cooked well, tender and loaded with flavor! The staff were courteous and quick. Highly recommended! If we have the opportunity we will definitely go back!

The full cut brisket is amazing! And the fries are really good as well. Other than that, the BBQ beans are pretty good, but were not a huge fan on their BBQ sauces or pulled pork. The full cut brisket as stated above is the best I've ever had however. This is one of 2 spots that always comes to mind when we think of BBQ around the Durham area

We stopped here last. Igor for dinner , food and service was incredible. I spoke to the owner while we were leaving and he insisted that we try the ribs , so he stopped what he was doing and went and got us a rib sample and even gave us some rib rub to try at home. We will definitely be returning soon.

Omg! The food is amazing! The meats are tender, the ribs come right off the bone, the smoke flavor in the meat is on point. The peach cobbler took me back to my childhood days, eating at my great grandma table for the holidays. Excellent customer service. I will most definitely be back.

Really good variety of BBQ food and sauces. Limited beer selection. But the quality of the food is TREMENDOUS. The quantity is good, I could have used more pulled pork on my sandwich but sides were a good size. Atmosphere is fun and great service. Highly recommended for that area between chain BBQ and roadside shacks.

BBQ is awesome. Good flavour, hush puppies are always served hot and they have a tone of sauces to pick from. Friendly staff and good prices. I will definitely be coming back.

Really good barbeque! Wide selection and combos, super stew, corn pudding & peach cobbler! Lots of spicy topping choices. Helpful staff. Comfortable laid back rustic style interiors. Expected, reasonable pricing.

I'm just relocated to North Carolina and I was surprised when they had great sliced brisket. It was very delicious. Definitely recommend! Didn't take long (probably helped that it was 8pm)😂 Also decorated nicely. Over all very great restaurant!

I've gone here a few times and they never disappoint (except when they're sold out of those delicious ribs)! The staff has also been really great. I really wish I remembered her name but the cashier I had the other evening was very personable and fun.
