When I say the best barbecue in the world, I mean the best barbecue in the world. They also have the best homemade fries. They have two locations, one in Jasper and another one close to Dora. The original one is in Dora. It is an original barbecue joint that has been there over 50 years.

Always good. Whenever you go other to other bbq restaurants the question is asked : " was it as good as green top?" 9 times out of 10 others don't compare.

The pork barbecue is not only some of the best in Alabama, but the best anywhere.
The sauce has the perfect kick and you can choose from sliced or pulled pork.
The hand-patted cheeseburgers are spectacular and the homemade fries cannot be beat.

Now you have the option of having that most wonderful smoked pork at two locations. If you travel between Birmingham and Jasper, Alabama then you probably already know what a treasure The Green Top has been for many years. The old location closer to Birmingham is exactly what you would picture as a 1950's booths and tables kinda establishment complete with a bar. The brick chimney billowing wonderful smelling clouds of pork perfume lets you know you have arrived. The location in Jasper is newer and doesn't have that old movie feeling just yet but both locations have really good food! You can't beat the pulled pork sandwich with homemade fries served in a plastic basket with a tall glass of iced tea on the side. Friendly servers and excellent pit masters.

My husband and I went to the Green Top in September while visiting family near there. Tony ordered BBQ pork and I had the BBQ chicken. We both ordered cole slaw which was delicious. Tony had fries and I had sweet potato fries. There was so much chicken that I took a huge portion home and enjoyed in for lunch the next day.

My husband grew up around here and had been to the Green Top many times (original location). This is an additional one but The food is just as good.

Our servers were great . . . enjoyed some humor during dinner and can say we would enjoy visiting again.
