Used a Groupon to try out Tops and ordered this pastrami sandwich that blew the Hat out of the water and almost $2.00 less. Large variety of burgers, salads, soups and gyros.

I had one of the better pastrami sandwiches here that I have had. It was moist and juicy. Worth coming back for. Service was fast and courteous. They have indoor and outdoor seating here. This place is similar to Lucky Boy. If you like Lucky...More

Best Carne Asada burrito (ingredients and pico de gallo), and best thick, crispy zucchini fries ever! And the flavor! Awesome
