Atlanta's Newest 'Que: City Barbeque

Screen Shot 2019-02-21 at 3.27.30 PM
When it comes to ‘que in Atlanta, we expect the best because we have some of the best BBQ restaurants in the country. Our standards are high, which only works in our favor and attracts more delicious BBQ restaurants to join the Atlanta food scene. One of the newest BBQ spots on the block is City Barbeque. The restaurant has opened in Decatur and Johns Creek and they smoke low and slow just as we expect. City Barbeque uses hickory in their smokers and smoke their meats 24 hours a day. All sides and desserts are made from scratch at each location. No wonder there are lines all hours of the day! There are no short cuts at City Barbeque- it takes about 18 hours to smoke their meats and they won't serve anything less than award-winning quality. You can truly taste the difference in the care and quality they dedicate to their food.

City Barbeque is now open in Johns Creek and Decatur, and a third location will be opening in Sandy Springs in September. We will debut this pit-fired goodness at Food That Rocks Saturday, June 8th. Our 4th annual event will be held at the City Green in City Springs featuring 30+ restaurants, beer, wine, cocktails and live music. More to be announced soon on!
