My wife and I drove to Granite Falls about once a week to
eat at the New City BBQ. It's 20 miles round trip, so we were
happy to see they've opened another restaurant in Hickory.
That saves us about 16 miles a week driving since it's so much
closer to home.
We ate there this morning, April 15 2013 and the food was very
The restaurant is spotlessly clean.
The waitresses are as friendly as can be.
The prices are very reasonable.
What more could anyone want?
If you're coming North, go to the Exxon station in Viewmont,
the Windy City area, right before Viewmont Baptist Church.
Turn right at the Exxon, across from Dunkin Donut.
It'll be on your immediate left.
My wife and I eat out about every meal and we'll be eating
at the New City BBQ a lot more often since it's closer home.
We highly recommend it.

is it run by same people that runs the one in granite ?? if so the one in granite has gone down HILL !!

The same people own the one in Hickory, but there are super nice
waitresses, and it's 10 to 1 cleaner and the atmosphere is pleasant.
The 1953 building in Granite Falls, I think that's how old it is, is ready to be torn down. It seems to be held together by
spit, glue, chewing gum and duct tape.
Yes, the one in Granite has gone down hill so much it's actually at the BOTTOM of the hill.
I hope the one near Hickory High School does well.

I've eaten at the Hickory version of City BBQ about 5 times
since I wrote the original Topix.
I've changed my mind about what I said.
This place won't make it until the end of the year.
They're doing so many thing wrong that it will be impossible
I predicted the demise of Section House Cafe and Papa Pesto
recently, and they're both gone.
One waitress, who works at the Hickory and Granite Falls
restaurants, is ruining their business.
The mistakes they're making at both locations will be their
I've only missed the prediction of only one restaurant that
would go out of business, for years.
The Hickory location is one of the worst locations anywhere.
No business will ever make it there.

My brother and his wife, plus my husband and I
went to the Hickory New City BBQ last week.
This building has never had a business that has
lasted. They've all gone out of business.
Why would TNCBBQ choose this location?
It has the kiss of death when it comes to having
a chance of succeeding. The parking is inadequate;
the building is too small, and from what we saw
last week, they don't seem to know what they're doing.
We saw what we figured out to be was the manager , or owner, and he looked as if he was going to have a stroke. He was stressed out to the max.
I hate it for them, but they'll be gone from
this location within a few months.
I think we got the waitress the former Topix
She alone will hasten the closing of this place.
The only chance they have is catering.

Yeah...so sitting in the establishment now.. WOW! Walked in and got glared at. When the waitress finally made her presence at our table she asked for drinks...the first of us said "sweet tea"..she looks at the rest of us and says "sweet tea for you too?"... Then takes our orders and stood there and stared at the pad she was writing on when one said they wanted "fries and slaw" after 15 seconds she was asked if there was a problem and she says "you can't order like that...it's not on the list"... The sides are valid but aren't noted on the "specials board" as we then figure out by prodding simple mindless questions at her.
She has to be high as a kite! I have NEVER in my life seen someone act like that on the job in public. She must be the waitress mentioned above.
I've only been in here for 10 min and have made my decision going forward. New City BBQ, it was nice to meet you but probably never again. If this is the best help you can get then I won't be bringing my business back.

We should feel so lucky as to have the nostradumbazz of restaurants here in Hickory.

I'm guessing you're jealous of anyone who has the money
to eat out, when you have to live in your double wide and
live on food stamps.
Get a Job.
Get off your computer,
and get a life, you moron.
You need to keep your mouth shut.
Your stupidity is showing.

I've read some of Cakeman's rantings and ravings.
I think he needs to get laid and rid himself of all
of his anxiety, frustrations and mean spirit.
It's as if he's spitting venom when he writes on Topix.
You really shouldn't pick on him; he may be retarded,
or an idiot savant, heavy on the idiot.

is it still open?
#11 Jan 5, 2014
I ate at the New City Barbecue with my sister quite a few times off and on from when
they first opened to a couple of months ago..
They close whenever they feel like it even though
the hours state differently.
We went there 4 times when they were supposed to be open and they had closed,
or were closing, with the door locked.
They skimp on their portions.
They increase prices way too often.
They keep trying to make changes to make the business go, but it won't..
I've been there at different times and they never have enough business to
keep their place open.
TCBY made it for a pretty long time, but every business since hasn't.
If the place had 70% seating capacity filled during their hours open they
still wouldn't make it. It's too small.
Their bad management is turning customers away.
As for the Granite Falls New City Barbecue:
The place is nasty and only old hanger-oners go there.
It's about to close, too.
There are too many good places to eat.
We stayed with them for a long time, but we won't eat there anymore.

went recently to try it out, at lunchtime. couldn't find a parking place, as there were just a few spaces in the back anyway, and it sure wasn't because they were busy. sad really. we have too many restaurants, and then again, not enough.

New city bbq in hickory is under new managment as of january, much better food, better service, and cleaner site. Daily specials, and more choices hopefully coming on the hot bar. Come in and make New City BBQ in Hickory your favorite eatout spot. Food is prepared fresh as ordered if in a hurry please call ahead.

I haven't seen any of "cakeman's" Debbie Downer (SNL) type
Hopefully he died.
His rantings and ravings were putrid.
What a piece of rat dung he is/was.
#15 May 15, 2014
My brother and I ate there 6 or 7 times in the past few months.
We stopped going because of the inconsistences in about
Their hours change every week or so , it seems..
The food varies too much.
My brother ordered a double cheeseburger on two
different occasions. One had two generous patties
one time and two very small ones on the other.
The large sandwich was worth the money, but the
second, small one, wasn't worth half of what he was
The menu changes almost daily.
They are out of certain foods and drinks too often.
They offer the cheapest paper towels to use as napkins.
The air vents blow right on you, almost anywhere you sit.
The waitresses, except one, should not work at that job.
The windows are filthy and looked like they've never been
Sometime when we ate there the place smelled like
Workers bring their children to work.
The parking lot is too small.
This location has never been a good one.
The yogurt place was the last one to stay there very long.
No way this place will be in business later than Christmas of
Probably not that long.

Ms Mary new city barbecue is a great place to eat the menu changes only for the hot bar it's different daily they have great food excellent waitress funny you say it won't last but my dear yes it will if you don't like it go else where but we will continue to eat their on a daily basics and so will all my family and friends
#17 May 18, 2014
My dear, uneducated Kathy,(NOTICE THAT I CAPITILIZED YOUR NAME, as it should have been.)
I've used CAPITAL LETTERS to accentuate and point out your errors.
New City Barbecue (CAPITILIZED) is a great place to eat .(PERIOD)
The (CAPITALIZED) menu changes only for the hot bar ( AND) it's different daily.(PERIOD).
They (CAPTALIZED) have great food (AND) excellent waitress(ONE WAITRESS ?..DO YOU MEAN WAITRESSES, PLURAL?)(PERIOD)
Funny ,(CAPITALIZED)(COMMA) you say it won't last (COMMA), but my dear(COMMA) yes it will.(PERIOD)
If (CAPITALIZED)you don't like it (COMMA), go else where (ELSEWHERE IS ONE WORD)(COMMA), but we will continue to eat their (THERE, NOT THEIR) on a daily basics (DAILY BASICS?....(You do mean DAILY BASIS, don't you?) and so will all my family and friends .(PERIOD)
Where, in God's Name did you go to school, honey child?
If you were graduated from high school,(even a GED is doubtful) they should burn it to the ground , because of their (this is where you use 'their') failure to give you a proper education.
I'm guessing a lot of your friends that were in school with you are working at McDonalds, Burger King, or Hardees,'slinging burgers'.
Didn't they have English and Grammar at any of the schools you attended?
I'd wager mucho dinero that you say, "I seen him", "He done that", and use"like", "you know" , and "whatever" , a lot.
Double wide....junky car...food stamps....like beer, booze and drugs,
and probably fat as a fatting shoat?
Am I right, or am I right?
ha ha ha ha ha ha

MS MARY U HAVE A FOUL MOUTH ON YOU. THIS IS REVIEWS FOR RESTAURANTS NOT FOR U TOO MAKE FUN OF SOMEONE. U NEED A LIFE OR A MAN. LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE.
#19 May 20, 2014
Mary you know nothing about me so keep your mouth shut. You are the idiot! Just because you don't like something don't mean everyone else has to share your opinion. Why would you wish something would burn down that's really not nice. I think you are the bad person here.We try to support a local business.no not on welfare or drugs not even alcohol so maybe your the one with the problem trying to hide all your secrets by accusing other people of what you really do.
#20 May 27, 2014
Ashley, by dear, this Topix site is for whatever I say it's for.
I'll put a cake recipe on here, or explain how to reset your
oil change light on your vehicle if I want to.
It's my choice.
So there !
Picture me sticking my tongue out at you, wagging my head,
with my eyes closed, saying "na na na na na" (in sing song.)
You're intimidated because I've pointed out how you and the other
dummy probably have an IQ of about 90.(100 is average)
I never was a whiz at English and grammar in school, but I
can't imagine anyone like you two who undoubtedly never opened
a book in school.
People writing as you did, above, makes me want to puke.
You don't need all capitals.
That's like shouting all of the time instead of simply talking.
Both of you should be put in a home for the terminally brain dead.
You're simply low class trash and will never be anything but a burden
Now, put that in your pipe and smoke it, retard !
Calm down. I'm just having fun,'pulling your chain.'
