“Good food, good price”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

My husband and I eat lunch often at Tipton's. The pork bar-b-cue is good, but we opt for the pulled chicken sandwich. Tipton's white slaw is the BEST I've ever had in any restaurant; I sometimes buy a pint of slaw to take home to serve with my own food. Their homemade potato chips are delicious and the the fries are fat pieces of spicy potato instead of the usual grease puffs or dry crinkle fries that most restaurants serve. However, I do not recommend the ribs. Everything else we have ordered here has always been good.

“What a JOKE== No chicken on a Friday night ARE YOU SERIOUS?”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

This past Friday night at 6:40 p.m. we entered- having never eaten there but looked at the reviews and thought we would give the chicken a try...well NO CHICKEN available- have something else the gal said- ARE YOU SERIOUS? We came here for chicken-- well it will be 30-45 minutes before we have any---this on a Friday night and they were not packed- mildly busy.

“Good food, friendly staff, huge portions”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

Tiptons has a huge menu selection, with all the food that I tried being good or very good. The portions are absolutely huge, so no worries about going hungry.
