Popular barbecue chain closes Reynoldsburg eatery to build new location in the same spot

Jack McLaughlin

City Barbecue’s Reynold’s eatery is temporarily closed, and by the time it reopens an entirely new building will welcome customers.

That’s because the eatery, located at 5979 E. Main St. in Reynoldsburg, is razing this location in order to construct a new one with a fresh, new look.

City Barbecue announced that its Reynoldsburg restaurant would temporarily close for the construction in late July. It officially closed on Aug. 3, and construction began several days later. The new eatery will likely open later this year, although an exact date hasn’t been announced.

The new building will be constructed at the same location.

You can check out a video of the construction posted to the eatery’s social media pages below.

City barbecue operates multiple other locations in the Columbus area, including restaurants at Polaris, Upper Arlington, Gahanna and more.
