We recently traveled to Tennessee to help our daughter and her husband move to Utah. So happy to have them closer to us! Happy Happy! While we were there, we celebrated her birthday by going to dinner at their favorite BBQ place, Top Hog BBQ in Gallatin, TN. It was a delightful, homey place and the food was plentiful and delicious! Our server welcomed us with southern charm. We were obviously not the only ones to love this place as even though we were seated right away at 11:30 am on a Saturday, before we left there was a fair bunch waiting to be seated. Our daughter said there is often a 30 -60 minute wait on a weekend evening. SO worth the wait!
Barbecue there seems a little different than here in Idaho. The sauce is much thinner. The sides were different as well! So much fun to try different foods! I enjoyed BBQ Smoked Pulled Pork, Hoe Cakes, and Onion Rings, and I tasted Keeley's coleslaw that was close to the best I've ever had! I sampled my daughters Deep Fried Catfish - so moist and delicious! It would have been fun to try the turnip greens, baked beans, mac and cheese, potato salad, white beans, deviled eggs, - but a girl can only eat so much! Drinks were served in wide mouth quart jars. Fun!
One of these days I'd love to go on a food-tour. In the meantime - I'll enjoy sampling delicious food in the area's we do get to travel. If you're near Gallatin, TN near meal-time, a stop at Top Hog BBQ should be top on your list!
