This place is fantastic! One of the last best drive in food places Ive been too! Cheap eats that are delicious brought right out to your car. Not to mention it's a nice piece of history for the area as this location was used in the film Dazed and Confused as a hangout spot. I am a huge fan so wanted to come pay tribute, but the smells got me and the food was fantastic! Worth a stop for a movie buff or foodie fan.

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 concept in Austin!

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

when ever we go to Austin to visit, we always make a stop at the Top Notch, ever since my first visit back in 1999 we have had Top Notch burgers several times while we are there

Grilled Chicken sandwich with cheddar is the best. Very filling with some onion rings on the side. They should open one down south.
