Top Notch BBQ, The Restaurant, Opens This Weekend
9310 S Eastern Ave. [map]
There are few things like a good steak and vodka that make this writer excited. Thankfully, those are things easy to find in Las Vegas. Last summer, we added another category to the list when we found the Top Notch BBQ food truck.
Yeah, that was the height of the food truck craze, but Top Notch BBQ was different. While there were plenty of good food trucks there were not as many that made our knees buckle like Top Notch did. Top Notch BBQ wasn't just good for Las Vegas. They made some of the best BBQ we've ever had -- anywhere in the United States. We became addicted. Then something awful happened. There was no more smokin' in the desert. The truck went away.
The owner of the trailer they were leasing to own filed for bankruptcy so it had to be sold. Unfortunately, an attempt on social media to save Top Notch BBQ was all for naught. Our Top Notch BBQ addiction stopped cold turkey. There was no reason to try BBQ anywhere else because nothing else could match it.
It's been a long road back for Top Notch BBQ, but the best BBQ in Las Vegas returns this Saturday, December 1 with a brick and mortar restaurant. The Top Notch BBQ restaurant will be located in Henderson at 9310 S Eastern Ave., near Green Valley Ranch. Information on the Top Notch BBQ restaurant has been leaked slowly on Twitter.
Today, they will be revealing their new menu, if anyone needs such a thing.
The opening of Top Notch BBQ restaurant and its location sound like a good excuse to check out GVR and fill our gullet with some delicious BBQ beginning with a pulled pork sandwich, or three. Hey, it's not pool season. We're allowed.
