While burgers are good,BBQ is below par for area

Tops has locations all around the mid-south area and been around since the mid 50's. While at one time may have been tops in bbq, not so true now. I primary visit for their burgers and fries. The burgers are cooked to order and are juicy, greasy and good. Add a order of fries and it's a good... read more

Never heard of this place but took a chance and the pork was very tasty and tender. I had the pork sandwich combo with slaw and potato salad. Sides were good and the sandwich was excellent. The pork was super tender and moist. Sauces were very good and not overpowering to the flavor of the meat. Topped the meal off... More

As Truckers we eat lots of BBQ all over the country and always like to try another! Granted, they don't advertise that it's smoked BBQ, but it's also tasteless BBQ. I mean no spices at all, just boiled meat. And while it wasn't dry, it really needed something. I think this is a chain. Maybe we should have had a... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner because I was dying for a good burger. The hamburger was just ok. Would've been better if the meat was a little seasoned. My husband had the sampler plate and every bit of the bbq was dry and tasteless. Bbq was the worst I've tasted. Everything was very bland. The baked beans... More

Unique Sauces: We tried all three and the "sweet" was our favorite. Burgers: Hot and fresh patties. Crinkly hot fries. A solid size for our pre-teen kids. Pork: Im not a big pork fan but this was tender and had a good flavor. Not dried out and you could hear them chopping it over the counter. Brisket: Yes - Yes... More

Passing through from California decided to stop and try Tops BBQ. Had the ribs and the brisket between my wife and I. The brisket was fantastic, the ribs however were mediocre at best, & very tough, not at all melt in your mouth as one reviewer had said. Also had the beans and cole slaw. The beans were sweet, but...

One of the best fast food barbecue restaurants around. Right off the Bethel Rd./Hacks Cross exit on Hwy. 78, this restaurant is part of a Memphis chain that was founded in the 50's. Always quick, no-nonsense service, even at peak lunch hours. Tops is known for its chopped barbeque with tart, tangy sauce, though they offer hot or sweet sauce... More

Yes it's fast food BBQ. Doesn't matter, the brisket and pulled pork were melt in your mouth tender, the BBQ sauce comes in three variations, hot, mild and sweet and has a nice tang. The BBQ beans and potato salad were excellent and the crinkle cut fries were hot, fresh and crispy on the outside while fluffy on the inside,... More
