Decided to give this restaurant a try since it was close to the hotel we were staying at for the night. We did read the reviews and were a little mixed about eating here to say the least. There is not a lot of choices of places to eat at this exit, so that was our main reason to eat... More

Tried to eat local while traveling. Big mistake. Everything we ordered was really bad. Ordered ribs, barbeque, coleslaw, beans, rolls, and tea. After trying two bites of everything, we wound up trashing it all and resorting to the cantaloupe and honeybuns that we had in our cooler. It might have been just a bad night for the restaurant, but it... More

I stopped off here on the way back to Little Rock from Alabama, keen to try something other than McDonalds or Burger King. What a pleasant surprise. This little place serves food with heart. I ordered 1/2 rack of ribs with potato salad and BBQ beans and a large iced tea. What I got was a box groaning with food... More

This is a chain, and while good, is not consistent. The Mississippi location near the Memphis border was very good and so I wanted to try again. This time I choose a location in Memphis, and the BBQ brisket was more fat than brisket.

Never heard of this place but took a chance and the pork was very tasty and tender. I had the pork sandwich combo with slaw and potato salad. Sides were good and the sandwich was excellent. The pork was super tender and moist. Sauces were very good and not overpowering to the flavor of the meat. Topped the meal off... More

Tops has locations all around the mid-south area and been around since the mid 50's. While at one time may have been tops in bbq, not so true now. I primary visit for their burgers and fries. The burgers are cooked to order and are juicy, greasy and good. Add a order of fries and it's a good meal. Now... More

As Truckers we eat lots of BBQ all over the country and always like to try another! Granted, they don't advertise that it's smoked BBQ, but it's also tasteless BBQ. I mean no spices at all, just boiled meat. And while it wasn't dry, it really needed something. I think this is a chain. Maybe we should have had a... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner because I was dying for a good burger. The hamburger was just ok. Would've been better if the meat was a little seasoned. My husband had the sampler plate and every bit of the bbq was dry and tasteless. Bbq was the worst I've tasted. Everything was very bland. The baked beans... More

Unique Sauces: We tried all three and the "sweet" was our favorite. Burgers: Hot and fresh patties. Crinkly hot fries. A solid size for our pre-teen kids. Pork: Im not a big pork fan but this was tender and had a good flavor. Not dried out and you could hear them chopping it over the counter. Brisket: Yes - Yes... More
