does top choice have ribs too or just that pulled pork crap?
Yes, they have ribs too....although, I certainly don't think it should be called pulled pork crap...it's delish.

I have never been to top choice, but it would have to be the best BBQ anywhere within two hundred miles to beat Stan's. Stan's ribs are like meat candy. Nobody makes them better. He understands that BBQ is about smoke and adds plenty. if you want bad service go to Ridgewood. Everyone in there is the most unhappy you could be and they don't know the difference between pulled pork and sliced pork.

Ridgewood has great food, but are not all that friendly. Our service was ok, but nothing to brag or complain about. The owners are nice people. LOL It is worth the drive. I love Top Choice. I gave up on Stan's over a year ago.

We've quit going to Stan's. The service has been TERRIBLE our last few times. Last time we were there, we waited over an hour for our turkey salads. We probably would have waiting longer if I didn't keep asking where they were. You put lettuce in a bowl and turkey on top, not that hard, takes 5 minutes. When Stan rang us up, he didn't ask how our meal was or apologize for the bad service. I won't ever eat there again. It's quite obvious Stan forgot how to run a successful restaurant. The equation goes something like this: Great Food + Great Service= Great Restaurant.

Ate at Stan's yesterday for our first, and last time. Iceberg lettuce for salads? Really? Gross. My husband was also very unhappy with his ribs. said it seemed like the sauce was just tossed on top of the meat and did not permeate the ribs plus it had a burned taste to him. Shrugs. That's just my opinion. I've lived where the barbeque is GREAT so perhaps I'm just more discriminating about it. lol

WTH is wrong with iceberg lettuce? Looks like an excuse to criticize. Heaven forbid you let iceberg lettuce enter your mouth.

Top Choice is great. Why not give it a try and then decide which BBQ is best. I go for the food/service and not the "Family".

I don't go to Stans like I used to. Food was adequate when I was last there but their prices are high, the tile floors & furnishings makes it noisy as heck & the service greatly lacked last several times. I would rather pay half the price at Top Choice & eat in privacy of my relaxing home. Top Choice has better BBQ but I like Stans beans & fries.

Top Choice has great food and they are very friendly, but I got tired of going only to find them closed.

Tru dat! That's my only issue with them. They have low overhead so we get great food at great prices but they aren't always there when we need a Q fix! Lol

Iceberg letter has NO nutritional value nor does it taste that good. Sorry but I use one of the darker lettuces (Romaine, etc) and I just think iceberg sucks. IT's just a cheap filler lettuce. Maybe if they had put something else in it except for one small cherry tomato you could have stood to eat it. lol

I didn't pay attention to the prices closely, but I THINK the small salad (which I got) was $1.99. Even Fatz uses the cheap lettuce, but they put enough other veggies in it that it's eatable.

i also agree Stans needs to get it together on service! I keep meaning to try the ribs at Top Choice but something always messes up my Fri rib day plans. Have you ever tried them? Anyone else tried them?
