    Made famous in the movie, Dazed and Confused, this drive in burger joint is as local as it gets. The grill is so seasoned with age that you probably could make anything cooked on taste amazing.

    Quick and cheap good food. Loved the cheese burger and fries. The burgers are more towards the well done side though.

    New ownership has updated the menu with fried okra and green beans, but otherwise Top Notch is a local fast food restaurant still frozen in time – and that's why we love it. Get the Longhorn special.
