City BarbequeThe Ohio-based City Barbeque chain plans to open its first Indiana restaurant in Greenwood on the site of the former Grindstone Charley's. The chain, which was formed in 1999 by a barbecue competition team, offers a variety of regional styles at its 16 restaurants in Ohio. The new store at 7863 U.S. 31 South, scheduled to open in late summer or early fall, is under construction now. The chain also is looking at other potential locations in Indiana. Anyone familiar with the restaurants?

  • Think GT South's
    My wife and I lived in the Dayton, Ohio area for a couple years and had a City Barbecue down the street. If you like GT South's then you will love this place. Not really my thing, but it's very popular in Ohio.
  • yay!
    Yay! More chain restaurants!
  • What's wrong with chains?
    I realize that independent places like Papa Roux, Jockamo's, Sahms and such are great but what about inviting chains, on a limited basis that aren't currently in town? I would rather have an independent than a chain (in MOST cases) but would rather have a new chain than an empty building.
  • not greenwood
    Don't know a thing about the restaurant.
    However, the location is not Greenwood. It
    is Southside Indy, Perry Township.
  • another bbq joint
    Never eaten there but it better be fantastic because there are already at least 2 other BBQ joints on the southside and on 31, one of which actually is in Greenwood
    • another bbq joint
      I looked at the menu online and it looks comparable to famous daves and we are not impressed with daves, smokey bones is the best on the southside
    • Chains aren't that bad
      I agree, Dave in Indy. While I would rather have an independent restaurant, chain restaurants still have a local owner/proprietor (usually) and employ local people. What's so bad about that?
    • A local proprietor
      I happened to meet the owner of this City Barbeque a few weeks ago at a mutual friend's home. He is a local proprietor and lives somewhere in the Indy area with his family. He was very proud of the restaurant and excited for the opening. If that's indicative of anything, I would say this restaurant and the owner will be a boon to the area. I wish him and his team good luck in their opening.
    • Good BBQ
      We had City BBQ at the Greenwood Football game tonight and it was REALLY good. Give it a try!!
    • Menus
      Just trying to locate City BBQ's menu is a nightmare. I have ate here once, it was good. They are right, it is not in greenwood. How to find the menu?
    • Dayton location
      We have eaten at the City Barbeque close to my daughter and SIL's house in Franklin OH and enjoyed it very much. We were suprised to find another location on the south side of Indy.
