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

We came for lunch. It was steady, but plenty of seating available. The BBQ, Macaroni, and Mashed Potatoes were delicious! I'm a NC native, and we know our BBQ. I highly recommend! Nice staff and clean. Also, located near the Amish Pantry and Store. Currently the Hale Bale Trail is going on in the area. It was such a fun... More

Got beef and pork. Good smoke flavor. Mixed mild and hot sauces great on both. Fried squash tasty. Hash brown casserole was cold, like straight out of refrigerator cold. If this had been warmed up, would have given at least 4.5.

I LOVE❤️❤️❤️this place! It's worth the drive if you are within 50 miles or more of it! I've not had any that comes close, and I love BBQ and eat it a lot, so that's saying something! We drive the 45 minutes over here a lot. We've even had it catered for a special event! The people are nice, helpful,... More

We happened to be in the area and stopped by for a late lunch. It was really good! My husband had the chicken and I had the beef. It had a smoky flavor, wasn't dry and the sauce is good. The sides were ok. Staff was very friendly and helpful! If we are ever back in the area, we will... More

Nice bbq place right off the main road going to Guthrie from Clarksville. Plenty of different bbq meats to choose from with plenty of sides as well. It took about 5 minutes, if that, to get our food after we ordered. Everyone was very friendly and the hot bbq sauce was good as well. Stop here next time on your... More
