Hit the drive thru for a double cheeseburger combo lunch. Chose the fries and beans as sides, fully dressed burger hold the mayo. Couldn't wait to get back to the office to dig in! Double cheeseburger was a real old school treat ! Juicy beef...More

It's difficult to make nondescript BBQ, but Tops has managed to. The meat wasn't very juicy and the sauce was bland. The portions were less than one would expect for a $12 plate.

The food was good, but nothing special. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would have no problem coming back.

Nothing special, but not bad. The ribs and the dry rub were very good. No sauce provided in my takeout, though. Bread was simply a hamburger bun half. The sides were okay: beans, potato salad, and cold fries.

The Ribs needed moisture, but I really hated the flavor of the BBQ sacue. The sauce wasn't much better in the BBQ beans. On the plus side, the sweet potatoes fries were good
