Hilltop is a little restaurant that has a nice selection of sandwiches, and changing varieties of soup, but my favorite is the broasted chicken. It has a nice crispy skin and tender inside. You can get it by the piece or as a dinner with sides. It makes for a quick, easy lunch or dinner. Take note: it is closed... More

First, let's be clear. This is a locally run ice cream, sandwich, and fresh fried chicken restaurant. It is not fine dining, nor does it pretend to be. It has been in business over 50 years, and that tells you something. It serves excellent burgers and subs, freshly made sandwiches, and award winning fried chicken; and is also renowned for... More

The Hilltop drive-in has been around forever. Nice place for a burgers and ice cream. I used to bring my children there all the time, now they go on their own.

Hilltop is another Sanatoga (Pottstown) gem. It still holds it nostalgic look of old days. The girls that work there are always friendly and on top of things. You can eat in or sit outside on nice days. The chicken is too die for. OMG so good. I always send people here for chicken.

Huge serving of hard and soft ice cream. My 13 year old granddaughter asked for a triple scoop and they said no you don't, it's too big. The breasted chicken is the best around.

The Hilltop Drive In is no longer truly a drive in but it does have a great 50's feel that is authentic. The food is great and what you would expect. They have the freshest best fried chicken. It seems as though it is always just coming out of the fryer. Ditto for the french fries. They also make home... More

This is everyone's hometown hangout...no matter where you are from. Feels like the '70's, and tastes like everything you grew up with. The best part is the price. You will not break the bank with you and your family. Take anything from the menu and enjoy...tastes like your childhood.

Good drive-in food, fresh made, not fast food. Been going here for 50+ years...since I was in high school...when burgers were 19 cents! You can always count on a great cheese steak, burger, or hoagie. And the soft ice cream, sundaes, and shakes are always delicious. Hilltop has always been a favorite place...used to take my kids there when they... More
