Folks at City Barbeque have been acting pretty jolly, and for good reason: ‘tis the season… for barbeque! We know that barbeque’s really a 24/7/365 lifestyle, but summer feels so BBQ-y. And—while we love having folks in to eat with us at the joint—we know that sometimes, a pulled pork sandwich just tastes better when you’re eating it in your own backyard. Planning your own start-of-summer party? Here are our three best backyard BBQ tips!
First things first: don’t run out of food
Can’t have a BBQ without BBQ. Whether you invited four folks or the full neighborhood, we’ve got the perfect Party Pack for your backyard party!
Look like a pro: carve it at home
Picture it: you bring home a whole brisket or pork shoulder and carve it up at the party. Everyone will be super impressed, plus you’ll be the hero handing out sandwiches. (And we won’t tell anyone you didn’t smoke it yourself, promise!)
Maximize your party time: skip the line
Got your Party Packs all picked out? Once you’ve got the menu set, just order your favorites online, pick ‘em up at the joint, and get the party started that much sooner!
We want to help you celebrate your mom, stepmom, grandmom, any mom! Bring her in on Mother’s Day for the city’s best barbeque, and we’ll treat her to a piece of our triple chocolate cake, on the house.*

Baja Turkey Salad is back and we’re stoked!
Summer may be Barbeque Season, but it’s also the time of year when a fresh, healthy salad sounds sooo good. What’s a ‘que fan to do?
Come to City Barbeque and order up a Baja Turkey Salad! We start with a fresh spring mix and load it up with cukes, tomatoes, and a flavor-packed housemade corn salsa. Then we add the hot stuff: freshly fried tortilla strips and our award-winning smoked turkey. The whole thing gets topped off with our addictive chipotle ranch dressing and a lime wedge for some DIY seasoning.
Sound good? It’s great! The crisp veggies, the crunchy tortillas, the warm turkey, that salsa [heart eyes] But it’s only available for a limited time, so hightail it into your local joint and get your greens on!
Class of 2018: Congratulations on your graduation—and your upcoming graduation party! Our catering experts have literally thousands of grad parties under their belts, and we’d love to help you plan yours.

Just give us a call to get started (and to schedule your free catering tasting).
Prefer to pick up the spread yourself? No problem! Our Party Packs are perfect for shindigs of any size—just call ahead or order online, pick it up at your local joint, and set it up yourself for an A+ DIY party.
And since we’re total grad party experts, we’re also full of advice! Here are our top five graduation party tips:
Congratulations again—we can’t wait to help you celebrate!
City Barbeque’s menu is always full of incredible ‘que, but we gotta admit that we sometimes play favorites. And lucky for us, two of our favorite limited-time items are back on April 4th!
We smoke a brisket for 18 hours, sauce it, shred it, and smoke it again for a taco unlike any you’ve ever had. These Double-Smoked Brisket Taqos are served on grilled flour tortillas, topped with homemade smoked corn, tomato, and chimichurri salsa, and come with a freshly charred jalapeño and house-pickled red onions on the side.
These taqos are smoked daily in small batches, and if we run out, it takes 20 hours for us to make more… and we always run out! Get here early, pick up three taqos for $9, and thank us later.
Looking for a greener take on a taqo? We’ve got just the thing! Our Baja Turkey Salad starts with our crisp spring mix, crunchy cukes, and ripe grape tomatoes. Then we add some of that smoked corn salsa, a bunch of freshly fried tortilla strips, and our national award–winning smoked turkey; the whole thing comes with our addictive homemade chipotle ranch and a wedge of lime. It’s like our Smokehouse Turkey Salad went on vacation… and, like a vacation, the Baja Turkey Salad can’t last forever. Get you one (or two, or ten) today!
We know what your Easter table needs: one of our artisan-cured, bone-in, hickory-smoked hams! And, even though Easter is April 1 this year, we aren’t fooling when we say you need to reserve your ham now: quantities are extremely limited, and we sell out every year.
Each ham feeds 10 folks (with plenty of leftovers!) and costs $69. While you’re ordering that ham, don’t forget to round out the meal! Green beans with bacon, corn pudding, potato salad—we’ve got you covered.
All City Barbeque locations will be closed on Easter—hams will be available for pickup on Saturday, March 31.
