“Good BBQ and Great Host”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

The BBQ at Top of the Hill is always a great treat being in an area that is not known for smoked pulled pork, brisket and ribs. I usually go with the pulled pork but this time I decided to try the brisket with the hot BBQ sauce and was pleasantly surprised. The meat had good flavor though not much actually smoke flavor but that was fine. There were both large and small chunks of pork mixed throughout the plate so it was not the typical pork mash you find at some cheap BBQ places. The hot BBQ was great with a good kick but not to the point where it masked the taste of the meat. All of the sides were good with the beans being the standout. My Dad got the rib plate with the same sides and the ribs were a little dry but still very good especially with a little sauce. The real treat came at the end when Jon brought both of us out a free sample of the new house made Andouille sausage which was excellent with excellent flavor and a great casing which provided a perfect "snap" when bit into. Top of the Hill is and will continue to be my go to spot in Brattleboro for food of any kind!

“great food, good price, awesome setting”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

My favorite is the tempeh wrap, the mac and cheese is reaaly good also! I can't wait for this place to open in the spring. Well worth the trip and an amazing place to eat lunch and birdwatch from the balcony over the river.

“Mind blowing”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

I think about this place all winter and get excited about them opening in the spring. Everything on the menu is excellent (my favorite may be Nikki's Wrap, or perhaps the chicken burrito). BYOB and be prepared for a lin in the warm summer months.
