This was highly recommended. Little disappointed. Menu mix of BBQ and Mexican. Outside dining but there is a covered portion and also a rustic building with electric stove and a dozen or so tables. Food okay. Nothing spectacular. A little pricey.

This roadside restaurant is amazing. You order at the kitchen and get a playing card. When they call your card you pick up your meal & proceed to an outside deck area that is great, it even has a tented area. The view is wonderful...More

We saw this advertised and as in area for only one night thought we would try it. You order at counter and get called when food ready. We sat on the outside tables (limited under cover) enjoying the food (delicious BBQ fare) and views. Recommend.

My wife and I got attracted tot his place by the smell, having parked nearby. We were not disappointed with our meals and the place seemed quirky and fun with their outdoor seating and their use of playing cards instead of order numbers.

Our 1st visit in the area. Food was good, nice view & outdoor seating, and friendly service. There was quite a wait to order because it was a busy Friday night. But considering how busy they were, the food didn't take too long to come...More

My wife and I were looking for a new place to eat lunch, and both of us LOVE good barbecue. After reading the reviews we figured Top of the Hill would be an absolute no-brainer, however, that wasn't the case. I ordered the 1/4-chicken lunch...More
