Good old neighborhood joint. Popular by area patrons for years. Busy on weekends. The fried foods are good, folks from miles around come in for their signature brain sandwiches.

Hilltop is one of my favorites for a good 'homecooked' meal. The fish, chicken and brain sandwiches are one of the best. They are always very busy but the service is still very good.

I don't like them myself, never tried one and am too old to start...but apparently nobody else has this sandwich so we go here. Other than that the menu is varied and mostly uses homemade recipes when possible. There is a small salad... More

The decor is old and the place is a bit run down but the food is excellent. My husband gets the brain sandwich and it is great every time. I was also surprised with how delicious the fried chicken is. It is always fresh and juicy and worth the wait for some of the best fried chicken you can get.... More

I lived in Evansville for 4 years and since moving away 3 years ago, this was my first choice of restaurant to come back and eat at! I brought family with me to enjoy this hidden gem on the west side of Evansville. They had heard me rave enough about the brain sandwiches and fried chicken, so that's exactly what... More
