Hilltop BBQ in Manchester

Does anyone know when it's official opening is going to be? I read somewhere that they were having a soft opening during Pride in Manchester week, which was the 2nd through the 8th, but when I ran by there yesterday, the opening soon sign was still up.

        That's too bad, I was kind of excited about a bbq place I could walk to.

          If you're in Manchester, take a quick ride to Little Mark's in Vernon. I've never been disappointed there.

              BTW, and just for fun, I don't recall seeing that avatar before. What a perfect CH presence--a cat peeking from behind the fridge. Love it! :D

            I wouldn't dismiss it on hearsay, especially since a) it's new, b) their friends might have had something different than what you wou would have had or the way you would have liked it and 3) it's within walking distance for heaven's sakes, if you get to know the food and the owners, you might be able to add it to your list of places that you can go to when you're feeling tired, lazy or just hankering. Try everything on the menu and then we'll all know.

              Well, they're actually opened now so I'll check it out and report back
