Due to current circumstances, we’ve made some temporary modifications to our menu. These changes are made in an effort to simplify operations, so we can focus on the stringent health and safety measures necessary to keep our guests and team members safe in these challenging times. Click here to learn more about those health and safety measures.

This means some of your favorite sides and desserts may be temporarily unavailable. We appreciate your understanding as we work to keep our teams safe, healthy, and ready to serve you when everything gets back to normal.

With everything going on right now, we all need to be taking care of ourselves. And we just don’t mean washing your hands and keeping your distance from others (please do those things), but real acts of kindness to yourself: calling a friend, connecting with your homebound kids, treating yourself to some slow-smoked barbeque prepared with meticulous attention to health and safety.

We’re doing everything we can to keep you, your family, and our team members safe (read more here), but that doesn’t mean you can’t safely enjoy all your City Barbeque favorites! Here’s how:


Staying close to home these days? We totally understand—that’s why we’re offering you free delivery on orders of $25 or more! You can even request a “no-contact delivery” when you enter your address, which means your meal will be packed up tight and left outside your door. The only thing you need to do is decide what you want and when you want it: order now!


Say hello to curbside pickup! Here’s how it works:

  • select “curbside” when placing your order at or in the City Barbeque app
  • give us the make, model, and color of your car
  • give us a call when you’ve arrived at the restaurant and parked
  • get your slow-smoked, safely prepared, securely packaged barbeque—without leaving your car

Sounds easy? It totally is: order now and see for yourself!


While our dining rooms may be closed, every City Barbeque location is still open for carryout orders! Place your order online, over the phone, or even in person: we’ll prepare it with care and pack it up securely so you can pick it up quick and enjoy that smoked-on-site barbeque in the comfort of your home.

No matter how you choose to order, know that we’re committed to getting you your barbeque in the safest and most convenient way. Stay safe and take care—we’re looking forward to serving you soon.

At City Barbeque, the safety of our guests and team has been our number one priority since 1999. This has never been more important than it is today. We want to keep you updated on all the things we’re doing to keep our guests and teammates safe.

We’re making sure our teammates are healthy and ready to work:

  • We’re checking all teammates for flu symptoms before every shift
  • We’re providing thermometers to check teammate temperatures before every shift
  • We’re checking to ensure no teammate believes they’ve been exposed to COVID-19 before every shift

We’re maintaining proper social distancing:

  • You’ll see a greeter at the door and/or curb during peak times to manage guest flow
  • We’re limiting guests inside at this time (please note that these limitations vary by location)
  • We’ve placed Xs on floors to ensure proper social distancing
  • We’re offering curbside pickup for your convenience and to limit folks inside the joint (learn more here)

We’re providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): 

  • All teammates are required to wear provided gloves
  • All teammates are required to wear provided masks
  • We’ve placed plexiglass barriers at cashier stations and pickup areas

We’ve upped our stringent safety and sanitation procedures:

  • We’re performing coronavirus cleaning/sanitizing three times per day
  • We’re just calling guest’s names when orders are ready to limit unnecessary discussion
  • We’ve moved condiments, lids, and straws behind the counter
  • We’re using secure bag closures to ensure our packaging is tamper-proof
  • We’ve closed our self-service beverage stations as required by local authorities

We’re making sure you can get your food in the way that feels most comfortable to you:

  • We’re offering free delivery on orders of $25 or more placed via or the City Barbeque app
  • We’ve introduced new and improved curbside service so you can get your food from the comfort of your car (learn more here)

We will continue to act in accordance with the most up-to-date guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, as well as work with public health officials in our communities. While some aspects of your experience with City Barbeque may change during this time, we will do everything we can to ensure any disruption in the service you receive is minimal.

We appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and trust in our teams. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to serving you soon.

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.

Say hello to the Big Bone! This massive beef rib is back on the menu Saturdays only through the end of March 2020.

Not only is the Big Bone genuinely huge, it’s big on flavor, too! It’s marbled like a ribeye, rubbed by hand with our with signature dry rub, and (of course) smoked low and slow, right on site in our joints.

We serve them up by the bone, and trust us, you’re only gonna need one: a single bones can weigh a pound and a half! We’ve only got space to smoke a few of these every day, which means supply is limited. You can pick up a Big Bone for yourself for $20 per pound at all City Barbeque locations. Get in and get yours before they’re gone!

Get your chili spoons ready: everyone’s favorite chili is back at City Barbeque! Our mouthwatering Brisket Chili is chock-full of our smoked-on-site brisket (duh), hand-diced jalapeños, green chilies, chipotle peppers, black beans, and homemade chicken stock. And as if our chili wasn’t good enough on its own (spoiler alert, it totally is), we top it off with shredded sharp cheddar, a dollop of sour cream, and a bright slice of fresh jalapeño before scooping it up by the cup for $3.99 or the bowl for $6.49.

Our delicious take on this classic winter warmer is available now, but hurry: this scratch-made fave is only available for a limited time!
