I have no idea if we got the wrong things but the food was worse than fast food! My husbands ribs were dry and flavorless and my fajitas were so bland and small I just gave up and saved room to eat something else.

From the amazing food to the quirky decor and great atmosphere this iz a stop along the road you must make. The baked beans are full of pieces of their delectable pulled pork, the cornbread is sumptuous, and the half chicken is delicious. The burnt ends wete a new addition this year and they are simply incredible! The owner and... More

This is awesome bbq, but don't expect cheap. They are Popular enough to charge more and they do. Try the fish tacos or the catfish.

Very disappointed... Expected a lot more considering it has the #1 rank in Brattleboro. Brisket sandwich had a lot of brisket but it was very dry and has no smoke flavor... This could have been hidden with some BBQ sauce but they only put on a minuscule amount... Also had the Mac and cheese... $7.95... I've had better M&C from... More

We had dinner at the Top of the Hill Grill while visiting family in the area. I love bbq; but, I wasn't impressed with this meal...nor was my husband. We both had pulled pork with baked beans and cole slaw. The pork was dry and the flavor was so so. I would guess that the beans came out of a... More

What a find! Read a recommendation in a travel book and went for lunch. We had smoked turkey breast, brisket, pulled pork plate and sandwich. All dishes were some of the best I have had; ranks right up there with barbecue in Ft. Worth. Beautiful view of the valley on a crisp fall day. Big portions at reasonable prices. The... More

So we were driving along and we noticed the large crowd at this roadside grill, and we just had to see what everyone was on line for. Well the pulled pork was out of this world delicious , and the baked beans were fantastic! The Mac and cheese was melt in your mouth delicious and it was made with Graften... More
