Where did October go? How is it already mid-November?! For those of you freaking out that we’re already a week away from Thanksgiving (😳), let us lend you a hand. For one week only, November 18–24, 2019, order your slow-smoked City Barbeque favorites online and enjoy free delivery, on us! We’ve partnered with DoorDash to get you your ‘que, so all you’ve gotta do is place your order online or in your iOS  or Android app, and select “delivery” instead of “pickup.” You worry about the big dinner next week; we’ve got you covered in the meantime (😉).

A little fine print: This offer is good for orders placed (on citybbq.com or the City Barbeque app only) and delivered between November 18–24, 2019 from participating City Barbeque locations to addresses in delivery range. Not valid for catering orders.

Let us save you the running around the holiday season: City Barbeque gift cards are the perfect gift for any recipient. Everyone on your list loves slow-smoked barbeque, right? And now through December 31, 2019, with every $25 you spend on gift cards, you’ll get a $5 bonus card! We guess you could gift the bonus card, too, but you’re the one running around shopping for all these presents—you deserve a treat for yourself!

Plus, we’ve got two Double Bonus Days coming up, when you’ll get two $5 bonus cards with every $25 spent on gift cards. Mark your calendar for December 3 and December 4, and get ready for twice the BBQ bonus!

Adding a little bonus to your gift-giving isn’t the only way we can give you a hand this holiday! We’re taking reservations for holiday meals: whole smoked turkeys and bone-in hams bundled with your favorite homemade sides (sweet potato casserole, smashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with bacon, corn pudding… we could keep going). These meals and meats are going quick, though, so reserve yours today! And, if your idea of a happy holiday is one where you can avoid the kitchen entirely, treat yourself this season with our full-service holiday catering.

Here’s the fine print on the bonus cards: This offer is valid on gift card purchases made in store and at citybbqshop.com. Bonus cards will be redeemable in-store January–February 2020 and are worth $5 towards any purchase (excluding alcohol); up to two bonus cards can be used per check. Bonus cards have no cash value, do not carry a balance, and cannot be used for orders placed online or fulfilled by third-party delivery services. No duplicate gift cards or bonus cards will be accepted. Gift cards and bonus cards cannot be used for catering. City Rewards members do not earn points on gift card purchases; the gift card recipient earns points when making a purchase using the gift card.

We’re once again commemorating Veterans Day by treating veterans and troops to a meal on the house. All day on Monday, November 11, all veterans and US military can stop by any City Barbeque joint and get a free sandwich, two sides, and a regular beverage. We’ve been thanking our nation’s veterans with a meal in this way for more than a decade now; last year alone, we served 12,340 free Veterans Day meals, and we’re hoping to serve even more in 2019!

“It’s so important to the whole team here at City Barbeque to honor our military men and women,” said Rick Malir, CEO and founder of City Barbeque. “We’re grateful every day for their service and sacrifice, and we’re honored every Veterans Day to show our appreciation by sharing some quality time and some good barbeque.”

We are honored to serve and support our veterans and active military, both on Veterans Day and throughout the year. We’ve raised more than $50,000 to date for the Resurrecting Lives Foundation, who works to support the estimated 20–25% of troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with traumatic brain injury. We’ve also made significant donations to Mission 22, a campaign dedicated to awareness and treatment of the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries that lead 22 veterans here at home to take their lives every day.

So share the news with the veterans and military folks in your life, and join us on Monday, November 11 in thanking them for their service.

Free meals applicable on dine-in and carryout orders; cannot be redeemed on orders placed online or via third-party delivery services.

We don’t know about you, but the holidays seem to sneak up on us faster and faster every year, and 2019 has been no exception!

Get the whole meal, get just the meat, get us to come out and cater the whole thing: whatever you need this holiday season, City Barbeque is here to help!

Our chicken tenders are awesome: buttermilk-marinated, hand-breaded, and fried to order. But sometimes, you just want that delicious chicken sandwich everyone’s talking about, you know?

Well, you’re in luck, because that delicious chicken sandwich is right here at City Barbeque! Our new Bama Crispy Chicken Sandwich loads up a grilled and buttered bun with those mouthwatering chicken tenders, our fan-favorite pickles, and a drizzle of our housemade white barbeque sauce (that’s the Bama part). This taste sensation is available for $7.49 at participating City Barbeque locations. But hurry: your new favorite chicken sandwich is only available for a limited time!

Ah, October: the leaves are changing, the jack o’lanterns are glowing, and Brunswick Stew is back at City Barbeque!

A total barbeque classic, this tomato-based stew is made with our award-winning brisket, pulled pork, and smoked turkey, as well as homemade chicken stock, sweet corn, black beans, green peppers… and that’s just the half of it! Warm up with a side ($2.99) or a bowl ($6.99), or bring home a pint, quart, or pan to share with the family.

Strike while the stew is hot, though: our scrumptious scratch-made Brunswick Stew is only available at participating City Barbeque locations for a limited time!
