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.
