This place is okay, the BBQ is good not the best and it's pretty dirty in there. My husband likes it a lot but I would pass...

Walked into mostly empty restaurant to order takeout. Girl at register was deeply involved in what was very obviously a personal conversation. Tried to be patient and waited for them to finish. Man finally suggested to her that she take my order. She immediately turned around to go converse with people in the kitchen. When she returned a few minutes... More

They claim to be the best Bar-B-Q in Memphis since 1952 and I believe it! I had the sampler platter and it was all I could do to finish it (I managed). The ribs, pork, and beef were indeed delicious and even the potato salad and beans were excellent. The staff was courteous and helpful and the prices were reasonable,... More

Bland, Dried out, Canned sides. Tea was good though. Sauces were pretty good. You will need A LOT of sauce to give it flavor. I had the sampler with Ribs, Brisket, and "Pulled" pork that was absolutely minced into powder. Beans were more of a soup, cole slaw was terrible.

I found out today that this Tops oven cooks it's brisket. No smoke ring. They also boil the rids and oven cook them. No smoke ring. The jumbo pork was good. But little meat. Beans where good. Service was good. Tops wake up and start smoking the meat. That's what BBQ is.

I have been several times. The pork bbq is always hit or miss. Sometimes the meat is fatty other times it's good. Slaw ok. Beans ok but not the best. Service not the friendliest.

Over priced for the amount and quility. I've had a lot of BBQ and this was fair at best. Service not very friendly and the place was dirty. Not goin back .

Ordered two number 1's the meat in the sandwich had so many hard items in it we weren't sure if it was bones or just meat left on the stove over cooked, hardly any BBQ sauce in it. very dry had to wash it down with the drinks. Finally gave up and fed the rest of it to our dog.... More

Passing thru Olive Branch & had heard about this place, so we stopped. I was a little skeptical because of some of the reviews here, and the lack of atmosphere didn't help, but the ribs were excellent!!! The sauce comes on the side which I liked because it gives you a chance to taste the meat, which is dry-rubbed "Memphis"... More
