Tops Drive In - Fri, 05/6/11 5:05 PM
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.
