Red Top is absolutely great. The decor is simple and rustic, and the people are simply the friendliest you could ask for. Quick service, friendly people, and of course amazing BBQ. The sweet potato casserole is stupid good. Pass up Red Top at your peril.

I stopped in with a co-worker. The manager recommended a couple of sides that I wouldn't normally try, but I gave it a whirl. I ordered the pork sandwich, green beans, and red garlic potatoes. It's the best pork I've eaten. The BBQ sauce was incredible as well. The sides, were surprisingly delicious. The area was very clean. I received... More

I'm a NC native and a BBQ snob. Although Red Top BBQ is not vinegar based, it's extremely good! It never disappoints. I usually get the BBQ plate. It comes with two sides and a roll. The macaroni and cheese and sweet potato casserole are delicious! In the Fall, Guthrie has a Hay Bale Trail. We enjoyed Red Top BBQ,... More

Stopped in for lunch. Cole slaw was excellent and BBQ was on point. Overall fairly priced for a good amount of food. Came with 2 sides and corn bread. Lunch can get pretty busy so there may be a slight wait.

This was very good! Tender pulled pork, choice of mild or hot sauce. Many sides to choose from including my favorite, green beans. This is right on my beaten path so I will definitely be back for more. Chicken or broker next time.

I got a pork sandwich plate with green beans and garlic red potatoes. The cornbread was my favorite! Will definitely return!

The staff is friendly and kind. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back. The BBQ, Hashbrown Casserole, and Mashed Potatoes were delicious! I highly recommend. It's close to the Country Pantry and Amish Bakery which makes for a fun day with friends or family. I am a NC native, and pretty picky in reference to BBQ, this place is really... More

We really were looking forward to having BBQ and had good recommendations on Red Top BBQ so we drove 45 minutes to get there. The pulled pork was ok, a little dry and little if any smoke flavor. The two sauces, medium and hot, had almost the same taste and really no "hot" bite in the "hot sauce". The sides... More
