It will be the 39th restaurant for the barbecue chain. The old Applebee’s location covers about 5,000 square feet and can seat about 90 people inside and 30 more outside.

The menu includes a variety of smoked meats, included beef brisket, pork, turkey, chicken and sausage. St. Louis style ribs, several sides, salads, desserts and drinks are also offered. Carry-out is available and so is catering.

According to its website, City Barbeque’s roots came from a competition team and it’s first restaurant opened in 1999.

City Barbeque will be open Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
