I frequently pass through Memphis on my way home to Arkansas. I have passed Tops barbecue in Marion, Ar (I55) for many years saying, "I need to stop and try that!" Well, yesterday I stopped and was disappointed to say the least. The prices were very reasonable and the service was ok but the food was nothing to write home about. The meat on my pulled pork sandwich was tender but basically flavorless. Adding sauce didn't help either. I've had a lot of barbecue in my day and Tops was the absolute worst.
What barbecue is supposed to taste like.
This place is definitely not fancy, but it's right on the mark. I travel all over the country and this is probably one of the VERY best sandwhiches I've ever had. You can't beat the price.
