I had the cowbell sandwich, collard greens, & corn pudding for lunch on Monday, January 24th. City had sent me a coupon for my birthday I believe for $5 off. Though I placed my order to go, the young lady assisting me African American) was pleasant. We joked about me working from home & not being in a hurry to get back to work. I forget to take a picture of the corn pudding, but it was definitely good.
I had a chicken sandwich which was great! The fried okra however was subpar. I expected more but expectations are just that. I could have had the okra without frying it. Will likely try it again at some point but not running out the door to try this again. Also didn't get the drinks that came with my order. But portions of the meal was great. Will try again but ain't writing home about it. Will give them a chance to redeem.
I have to admitthis place surprised me. Walked up to the counter of City Barbeque in Matthews, NC to look over the menu. Scott welcomed me and asked me if I would like any sampleswell sure!!! After my samples I WAS SOLD!!! I decided on the Pick Two Meats of Brisket (lean and moist), Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage, some original and bourbon BBQ sauce, and a side of potato salad. What impressed me the most was the lean brisketgreat flavor, bark, and while lean was still moist. Some of the best lean brisket Ive had in a long time. The moist brisket was great with solid marbling and flavors while the Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage was deliciousjust the right amount of heat and great cheddar flavors. The potato salad is a really good side and they take as much pride in their sides as they do in their meats. This place provides some legit BBQ!!!

First time to this particular location as this is a chain restaurant familiar with them when I lived in Ohio. Food was bland besides the collard greens typical chain restaurant nothing special.
The food was okay, ribs and potato salad had really good flavor. Collard greens were good but filled with stems. I seen in another review that the ribs lacked meat. Totally true as you can see from the photos. Also, if you look at my receipt, I order a half slab uncut, but my ribs were cut. The Mac n cheese is not good in my opinion, it was extremely dry. Im giving them 2 stars for flavor and having my order complete on time. I dont think I will eat there again.
