About The Original Tops
The Original Tops, celebrating 60 years in business, is a restaurant steeped in history and tradition and a local symbol of the “American dream.” Founded by a hard working immigrant from Greece, Steven Bicos, who sought out to provide good “family food,” this former old school coffee shop turned bustling walk-up window was one of the first pioneers to create the fast casual concept of true American dining. Today, the restaurant, now owned by Steven’s sons John and Chris, still prides itself in making everything “from scratch,” using the freshest ingredients and staying true to the philosophy of homemade food at reasonable prices.
“They say you only turn 60 once. So my recommendation is to be there on Oct. 19th and or the 20th and order the Tops Special. It’s great at it’s regular price, but at 60 cents it is a special NOT TO BE MISSED. Cheers to Tops on turning 60!” –Mr. Pasadena
