Small place but locals love it

It was recommended to us and it was the best BBQ we've had so far. Good food. Our door seating as well. Big portions. Tight fit but it's worth it. Lots of locals, so you know it's good. Dress is very casual. If you are upscale dressed, take the tie off and roll your sleeves up. Enjoy!

We have been going to this restaurant for years. It is extremely popular with the locals so go mid-afternoon to get in. Best BBQ you will ever eat! Excellent catfish, hamburgers and everything else on the menu. One of a kind, family owned, very friendly service. Drinks are served in Mason jars. You will not regret making this a meal... More

This is a down home place and come as you are. There was a 30-40 min wait, but worth it. The BBQ pork dinner was excellent, beans were good and so was the slaw. Sweet tea was exceptional. Come early as there was always a line. Lots of take out people. BTW they dont even answer the phone on the... More

Top Hog has great food. Their Barbeque is awesome and their portions are large. They make the best hand patted hamburger around. You also can not go wrong with the catfish.

We're in Florida for the winter and can't wait to get back for that touch of Hog. This place "is what it is". If you love BBQ, here it is. Don't order a salad. This is BBQ territory. You WILL get full I'm just a simple guy that loves pork, but their ribs are good too. And get the potato... More

You can't beat Top Hog!! No where in this country has better barbecue at any price! Fantastic service! Hometown, folksy fun place. Rustic decor! Noisy--only because everybody is having so much fun!

Great food no matter what you order. I love the pulled pork with hoe cakes! They have other food for the non-BBQ fans. The fruit tea is also great
