This is essentially a fast food version of BBQ. The brisket sandwich was very good, as were the side of beans and potato salad. Presentation wise, your getting your food wrapped in paper or in small plastic containers. I've eaten at several restaurants the specialize in BBQ, not all very elegant, but most very good. Tops is just average, which is okay for fast food.

Mouth watering good is the only way to describe the food. All local bought and fixed that day. The meat melts in your mouth. Love that the sauce is served on the side so what you taste is nothing but smoked meat.
