We are your local family owned and operated neighbourhood Southern BBQ take-away joint! Proudly located in EAST END Kingston, Ontario – hidden in the back of the barriefield drive-thru carwash! Yep, the best bbq is always a tiny, hard to find joint & in a weird spot! We’re serving up all yer favourites – pulled pork, brisket, brined wings, baby back ribs, smoked chicken and more! All our meats are sourced as close to home as possible, smoked in-house daily (& all nightly) and the BBQ sauces are made right here from our tried and true authentic southern recipes. Git here early ’cause we are a real deal BBQ joint which means: “When it’s done, it’s done, & When it’s gone, it’s gone!”
BBQ, barbecue, or however ya want to spell it is cooking low and slow, low temperatures, usually with some wood smoke, for very long times. No one is really sure who or where it originated, but it was born out of necessity as a traditional method of cooking, which renders a tough, fatty or undesirable cut of meat, like brisket or pork butt, into some of the best stuff you’ll ever put in your mouth! The process is a combination of science, know-how, art, love and some luck.
We are currently open Thursday thru Saturday. Open at 11am on Thurs & Fri, noon on Saturdays.
This is the most common question, and the short answer – until we sell out. See SOLD OUT above. How long we remain open during a day is wholly dependent on all y’all. Some days everybody is in early buyin’ lots of BBQ, waitin’ in the parking lot before we even open! Other days lunch time isn’t as crazy and we’re open a while longer into the afternoon. Best to check on Faceboook as we post our SOLD OUT notices there, or give us a call if it’s mid-afternoon so y’all don’t make the trek to find we ain’t got nothin’ left.
We are a real BBQ joint, we fill the smoker to capacity, smoke up as much BBQ as we can each and every day we are open. That means everything y’all get is fresh and delicious, no yesterday leftovers passed off as fresh. The BBQ credo: “When it’s done, it’s done. When it’s gone, it’s gone!”
Quick answer, get here early! If y’all can’t make it in early, give us a call to reserve some delicious BBQ for a bit later. Best times to call – the hour before we open or after the lunch rush (1:30ish). Callin’ during the rush will likely lead to unanswered calls and disappointment.
This place is fantastic!!! The owners are lovely, generous, and always provide top quality service. And the beans, OMG THE BEANS!!!, the best in town for sure! Do yourself a favour and try them out. 🙂

It is all great! If you are not sure what to get, or incredibly hungry, get the trinity poutine! You will not be disappointed, although you maybe slightly uncomfortable if you eat it all yourself 🙂 (probably better to share)
The best pulled pork and beef brisket sandwiches in Kingston

Oh my,,,, I had trepidation going into a bbq joint attached to a car wash but was I wrong. I had tried ’bbq’ in ktown once before. Not at Stone City though. It was inedible. Shoe leather. Stone City is the perfect blend of flavour, moisture, texture and friendly. I ordered brisket and pulled pork and wow! I’ll be back next weekend. Amazing deliciousness. Thank you!!!
Great southern food with friendly helpful staff. Had the Frickles - love the dipping sauce, Beef Taco , Mac &Cheese bites, a side corn bread and a Pulled Pork Reg Platter. Would 100% recommend it to anyone.
Amazing food and even better service. I highly recommend!!
Super tasty food. Brisket was smokey and tender. The pork tacos we great.
Happened to end up here by chance. Glad I did! Food was excellent. Will be back any time I'm passing through Kingston
Whoa - Heck Ya. You guys are amazing. We have a smoker and can't get a brisket to turn out like yours. Just amazing. The owner is also super chill. Pre Covid we had a few good chats. Great people great food.
