This restaurant was featured in the movie "Dazed ad Confused". A classic curb-service joint with excellent food and service. Bar none the BEST fried chicken in Austin! Don't be drawn into the new places - go for the original classic!

Top Notch is known throughout for its tasty fried chicken and charbroiled burgers. But I always come back for their hand breaded onion rings and their addicting fried pies! This is a no-brainer if you want comfort food, friendly service and that diner or drive-in...More

I went because my favorite movie of all time was filmed there, but I strayed because the food was actually really great!
