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...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...More

Tops still has great bbq, there are several throughout memphis but this location and the union Ave location are by far the best. The burgers and pull pork are always on point. Great flavor and great service.

My first time trying this location. They were busy, but only using one register. Wait was a little longer. I tried the jumbo pork shoulder sandwich. Came with two sides and fountain drink for only $8.64, including tax. I ordered the baked beans and fries....More

We stopped in for lunch on our way north out of Memphis. Busy place. Not at all fancy. But very good food, and pretty quick stop.

Every time I go back to Memphis, I have to stop in at Tops and get a cheeseburger and a jumbo BBQ sandwich and they never let me down. It's always great. The people that work there aren't huge on customer service, they're more like...More
