Going once, going twice…

You’ve got two days—Friday and Saturday, October 19-20—to snag an Original Tops burger for 60 cents in celebration of their 60th anniversary.

The TOPS special is a 1/4 pound hamburger with lettuce, tomatoes, sweet red onion, dill pickle, and homemade Thousand Island dressing, topped with pastrami, mustard, and American cheese.


The Original Tops was founded by Steven Bicos who had emigrated from Greece. He took an old coffee shop and turned it into a walk-up window eatery. He is said to be “one of the first pioneers to create the fast food casual concept of true American dining.” The restaurant is now owned by Bicos’ sons, John and Chris, who still “make everything from scratch, using the freshest ingredients and staying true to the philosophy of homemade food at reasonable prices.”
