Grilled Chicken sandwich with cheddar is the best. Very filling with some onion rings on the side. They should open one down south.

It's hard to be the best at anything in a food cultured city like Austin, but Top Notch delivers. They use charcoal and it makes a huge difference. The vintage store front only adds to the taste. I think these burgers are easily the best...More
