After being told about it again and again, finally DB and I made it to Tops Bar-B-Q for a late afternoon lunch. We went to the location in the University of Memphis neighborhood.

On the way over, I asked what I should order. “Well,” DB said, “Either a pulled pork sandwich or the hamburger.”

“A hamburger?” I asked. “How can it be? They serve hamburgers and bar-b-q?”

They do.

We both ordered #1’s which come with your choice of two sides. I chose fries (highly recommended by DB) and beans. He chose fries and chips.

The restaurant was very chilly so we sat by the window. When our order was called, DB went to go get it. It was bagged up.

“Did you want this for here sweetie?” the lady cook asked. DB said “yes.” “Of course you did,” she said and popped the order taker up-side the head. She put our order on a tray and sent DB back to our table.

The sandwich was the best pulled pork I’ve had in Memphis. The meat is topped with slaw. The beans have chunks of meat in them. I suggest spooning them upon the sandwich as I did.┬áSuperb.
