Tops Drive In Fri, 05/6/11 5:05 PM (permalink)
Home of the Teen Twist, anyone remember tham, there was one in Bethesda, Md., great place to cruise chicks, when Hot Shoppes opened down the street, it put a hurting on them, but they had a lot of loyal teens ordering their fare...now they both are gone, easy to get into a fistfight at either place, LOL!

    The Teen Twist was the Hot Shoppes ham & cheese sandwich. Tops had a similar one but I can't recall the name. Their burger was The Topper.

      Dang I remember it as a kind of steak sandwich, oh well, old age!

        CTF,
         
        Here's the early Tops menu (p6) and some history:

        You probably remembered steak because their burger was called the Sirloiner. It was the Topper in a platter.
        I think they were sponsors for the Milt Grant show on channel 5.
         
        Good memories.
