The brisket sandwich was tasty, though a little dry. The one-tablespoon portion of coleslaw (really???) side is ridiculous.

Whenever someone is wanting to go out to eat and we are near Tops, any Tops they know I am going to suggest Tops. If I am on the way home and call the bride to ask if she wants Tops always says yes and now says to quit asking. If driving past a Tops just get it. Thank goodness... More

Some of the best burgers and bbq to be found anywhere. Very plain but clean. Usually a line just before opening. Ample parking and seating. Great fries, serve yourself drinks. Never disappointed. Prices moderate, staff friendly.

The dry rub ribs were excellent. The beans were way too vinegary for me & the coleslaw very finely chopped but tasty.

Stopped here on our way back o the hotel as we were traveling back to Virginia. The dry rub on the baby back ribs was amazing especially coupled with the sauce. The beans were a treat! They even had a drive through!

Nothing fancy just down home bbq. We waited about 15 minutes to order but the food was well worth it. My coworkers got the brisket with slaw. I had a burger. I will be there again the next time I have business in Tennessee.

Easy off interstate 40, back on, friendly staff. Reg. BBQ sandwich white bun, chopped pork, Cole slaw and Top's famous sauce. Two sides today, Top's BBQ beans and potato salad (just a little too much mustard for my taste). Last Sunday I had their cole slaw (which I prefer). Total $14.32 for a couple.

Okay so we live in Texas and were passing through Memphis so we had to once again compare Memphis bar-b-q to what we have in Texas. I had the Sampler with pork, ribs, and brisket--the ribs were exceptional. It was not too busy when we were there but all the people in the restaurant--staff and other customers--were friendly and happy.... More

One of the best TOPs in town. It has the standard menu and seems at lunch there is always a line at the ordering station. Since I usually take out orders for the family, it was nice to see that they added a take out window to this store. At first I did not think it would move a "fast... More

Enjoyed a half-rack order of Memphis dry rub ribs, which we shared back in our hotel room. With potatoes and cole slaw it was enough to share if you're not ravenous. Although held in a warming area for who knows how long, the ribs were tasty and tender enough. Slaw was chopped a little too finely but tasted fine. This... More
