Great place for bbq and burgers. Excellent burgers and good service. Sit where you want. You can go get when ready or they may bring to you

This is a fast food type restaurant and doesn't even compare to true BBQ food or restaurants. Overpriced for no more than you get.

One of the best places for bbq and all the fixings. The bbq is cooked just right, slaw is good, beans are ok. The hamburgers are just ok to me but I know many people that love them.

BBQ was chewy, not tender. Tasted as if they had freezer burn. The price was good, but the flavor wasn't worth it. Locals tell me that Tops best menu item is their burger. Would likely not eat there again.

This was my first of many visits. The food is awesome. You have to try their cheeseburgers as they are delicious. Great service and friendly atmosphere.

While this place claims to be the best barbecue in the Memphis area they must be dreaming. The meat was boiled and had no flavor. You couldn't tell if it was pork or beef as it all tasted the same and looked the same. Had to drown it in sauce to have any flavor. Don't recommend this place to anyone.

Stopped in based on reviews...they claim to be the best but I don't think they deserve a 5. I had a brisket platter...the brisket was ok but a little fatty (also they chop it up not slice it) so the sandwich is the same thing but cheaper??? Beans had a good flavor but sweet. The potato salad was pretty good... More

The food is great - mouth starts watering as soon as you get out of your vehicle. They have very friendly service and the orders have always been accurate.

The cashier wasn't very friendly. She just stood there as if she wasn't happy with her job. Didn't greet customer with a smile
