City Barbeque has done it again by coming out with a two pound beef rib - calling it THE BIG BONE! Now historically, City Barbeque was not my favorite of the BBQ places in Cincinnati - but when we're talking about a ginormous rib - I'm willing to give it another shot! (Thanks to City BBQ for providing my meal - all opinions are my own.)
President and co-founder of City Barbeque, Rick Malir grew up on a farm in Kansas and has always had a passion for agriculture and an appreciation for food and where it comes from. After teaming up with a local BBQ competition team, he made the leap from his day job at John Deere, to follow his dream of opening a bbq joint. In the early days, while the first joint in Columbus, OH was under construction- Rick and his team would book catering jobs by passing out flyers at football tailgates and smoking the meats to fulfill those orders in his garage, borrowing neighbors’ ovens to produce enough baked beans. Today, Rick has built a team of craftspeople who have the same passion for competition quality food and backyard hospitality that has helped the company grow fantastically across multiple states.
City BBQ serves delicious, scratch-made side dishes as well as a variety of bbq meats. It's a fast casual restaurant where you order at the counter and then they bring your food out to you quickly. In addition to the meats & sides - they also have desserts that somehow - I resisted!
Let me say too - Monty and the staff at the Eastgate location were great - he was super friendly and very accommodating. He's a great ambassador for City Barbeque!
purchase the sauces online too.
We were there for the rib but Monty generously brought us out an assortment of sides and a sandwich for us to try as well.
The BIG BONE is only available on Saturdays - they cook up a rack of them and when they're gone - they're gone. I think it's $20 for one rib - but it's definitely enough to share with 2 people and worth it. The beef is very rich and just oozing with flavor - I didn't even touch any sauce - it was perfection on it's own.
And who can have this big of a rib and not have a little fun with it?!
And now - you get to try it! Thanks to City Barbeque for providing a gift card to give away to you!
