Doing things the hard way

At the heart of

Who we are

We’re proud to serve the flavor of America. Every day, we’re smoking tastes of the nation, from Kansas City to the Carolinas, and sharing our passion for the art and soul of BBQ.

Our Values

We're passionate about barbeque, but our first love is really our core values: 

Safety first

Nothing matters more than the safety and well-being of our teammates and guests

Treat others with integrity, fairness, and respect

We treat everyone, guests and teammates alike, how we should all be treated in the first place

Deliver quality without sacrifice

We aren't exaggerating when we say we've been doing things the hard way since 1999

A note from Rick

When we opened the first City Barbeque in 1999, we thought we wanted to serve folks the best barbeque they’d ever had—but it didn’t take long for us to realize we wanted to serve more than just great food. Today, our goal is to serve and create happiness, and we look forward to doing just that for folks across the country for years to come.

Why we give back

We're serious about supporting our friends and neighbors in the communities we serve. That's why we host thousands of fundraisers for local charities and nonprofits every year (and donate 10% of our pre-tax profits).
