Remember (or heads-up, if you didn’t know): Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 10! We love taking the time to recognize moms, grandmas, stepmoms, and honorary moms, but we know everyone’s celebrations might look a little different this year. That’s why we’re partying all weekend long with the mother of all offers: double points on every Motherload from Friday, May 8–Sunday, May 10, 2020. (For those doing the math, that’s enough points to automatically earn a $5 reward!)

You’ve gotta be logged in to your City Rewards account when you place your order to earn your points, but other than that, you don’t need to do anything special. Just make sure there’s a Motherload in your cart for curbside pickup or delivery this weekend!

And since moms love BBQ, Mother’s Day is always a pretty busy one for us—that’s why we’re opening this one up to pre-orders as well. Pre-order your Motherload today for curbside pickup or delivery Friday, May 8–Sunday, May 10. As long as your order is picked up or delivered this weekend, you’ll earn your double points!

You don’t have to be a mom to redeem this offer, but make sure to thank the maternal folks in your life for all they do. Pre-order your Motherload now and celebrate mom with slow-smoked barbeque!

Double points offer only valid on purchases of The Motherload fulfilled May 8–10, 2020. Points will appear on City Rewards account just prior to order pickup or delivery: you may not see them appear when you initially place your order.

We’ve made some tweaks to our curbside pickup that we think you’re gonna love!

Just like always, you’ll want to start your order at order.citybbq.com or in the City BBQ app.* Then it’s just four simple steps:

  1. Select Curbside under Order Options and give us your car’s make, model, and color (if you’ve used curbside before, this bit hasn’t changed)
  2. Share your location when prompted (we’ll prompt you)
  3. Tap “I’m on my way” when you head out to the joint (so we know you’re coming)
  4. Get ready for your food: we’ll bring your ‘que out to your car as soon as you pull up (just like magic)

That’s it! No phone calls, no waiting: just us getting you your BBQ as fast as possible. And we do mean fast—order now and see for yourself!

*Curbside pickup is only available on orders placed at order.citybbq.com or in the City BBQ app. If you want to be able to share your location and let us know you’re on your way, just make sure your mobile number is attached to your online ordering account! If the phone number on your account is a landline, you won’t be able to take advantage of these improvements.

What’s better than sitting down to some hand-crafted, slow-smoked barbeque? Enjoying that barbeque with the whole family! It’s almost Family Time: all day long on Sunday, February 23, 2020, kids eat free with an adult meal purchase of $10 or more. Best of all, there’s no coupon needed: just tell us you’re here for Family Time and you’re all set!

Now all you need to do is decide what to order. Does your little one have a classic kiddo palate? Make their day with our curly mac & cheese and hand-breaded, fried-to-order chicken tenders. Have an adventurous eater? Well then we’ve got a smoker full of choices! Order them some juicy turkey, St. Louis–cut ribs, or even our snappy smoked sausage. And don’t forget to pick up a piece of Triple Chocolate Cake: every joint will have frosting and sprinkles at the ready for kids to make their slice (or even their Banana Pudding!) their own.

So load the kids in the car and swing by your local City Barbeque on Sunday, February 23. We can’t wait to celebrate Family Time with you!

And the fine print: Free kids meal with adult meal purchase of $10 or more on Sunday, February 23 only. Valid for dine-in or carry-out only; not valid for orders placed online, over the phone, or via third-party delivery services. No coupon needed.

A new year means a new refillable tumbler here at City Barbeque, and 2020’s tumbler is our best yet (if we do say so ourselves)! Starting January 6, 2020, buy a new limited-edition $10 tumbler at any of our joints and, as always, we’ll donate all profits to the Resurrecting Lives Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans living with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Not only are you helping vets with your purchase, you’re getting a double-walled, BPA-free tumbler with custom art and a flexible straw—plus free refills with any purchase through March 31, 2020!

We are honored every year to help raise funds for Resurrecting Lives, and are inspired by their commitment to our veterans. An estimated 20–25% of troops return from Iraq and Afghanistan with TBI, and Resurrecting Lives is committed to helping them all transition to a post-military career and life through advocacy, aid, fundraising, and research. We’ve donated more than $56,000 to this organization to date, and can’t wait to extend our support into the new decade!

We’d love for you to help us support the work of this incredible organization, but hurry: these limited-edition tumblers really are limited-edition, so snap yours up before they’re gone!

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.
