Can't wait to get back...

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... read 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

My husband and I had a few minutes before we had to pick our children up from school and decided to drive around and check out the various restaurants in Gallatin. We did not know this place existed and it's right in the middle of town. The BBQ was very good and cheaper than the chains per pound. I tried... More

I left out Great Burgers also, my mistake. I drive 20 miles from where I work once a month to eat lunch here. It is worth the time. This is one of those restaurants where "the locals" go and eat. A true down home experience. Not fancy, but the service and the food are excellent. The problem I always have... More

I travel for work and have occasion to visit Gallatin. Every time I am in town I make it a point to stop and eat here. Great pulled pork. Sauces are tasty and the corn cakes, turnip greens (spicy), and baked beans are fabulous. Highly recommended.

Absolutely the best option when wanting good down home eating! This BBQ place is a must. Best BBQ, catfish and cheeseburgers. Just remember cash or checks only. We go to Top Hog any time we are going anywhere close to Gallatin and sometimes even when we are not so close!

TOP HOG has some of the best BBQ I have ever put in my mouth. The meat is tender and has the perfect amount of hickory smoked flavor, it is great as a sandwich or all alone. The slaw they offer adds to the experience and they have other options that are equally tasty, such as fried catfish with all... More

My daughter and I stopped into Top Hog for the first time this week!! Must say this place is top notch. Service, food, atmosphere and price is really good!! If you are looking for great BBQ definitely stop by Top Hog but make sure to bring cash because they don't take credit cards
