There are two Tops in Pasadena. The other one is at Allen and Walnut. Of the two, the better one is this one on Colorado. Why? The flavor of the hamburger is just better. I don't know if they have common ownership or not. I eat at both, but given a choice I will go out of my way to... More

Sweet Potato Fries with Chipotle mayo, regular fries with or without chili, jucy burgers, and a menu so vast i have lived here forever and have not been able to try them all. The Tops I visit is the one on East Colorado. There are tables in and outside, I usually do a drive-through.

I only order the breakfast burrito and I love it. Sausage is my favorite. Cannot speak to anything else, because I've never cared to venture away from the breakfast burrito. Sold all day.

The food is great, the girl in drive thru can use some communication/customer service skills! At least the food makes up for it!

I return here each year just for the Pastrami and Burgers. This year was as good or better than last year, if that's possible. The Pastrami was lean, tasty, and perfectly cooked with generous portions. Ordered fried zucchini and chili cheese fries as sides. Everything was fast, perfect and inexpensive. Why would anyone choose McDonald's or any other fast food... More

We showed up with 19 people. 9 adults and 10 kids. Within ten minutes we were all eating exactly what we ordered. Nice salads and burgers. Yummy sweet potato fries. Large portions. A great fast food option, but there are also great salad choices.

If you’re single, order small and you’ll still probably have enough food for several meals. If you’re a couple, order small and you’ll have more than enough to feed both of you. One thing, while the steak sandwich has all the fixings of a “Philly Cheesesteak”, the steak is real solid steak, not the finely chopped and mixed mélange that... More

We were in Pasadena for a quick errand and was looking for dinner! Saw this joint and noticed a lot of people and drive through lined up with cars! Told my husband they must be good because there is a lot of people. Checked the place - nothing unusual - looks like a dive but husband saw that they were... More

I was in Pasadena for a quick trip and was starving when I arrived late at night. As I was driving towards my hotel I noticed a restaurant named Top's so I decided to hit the drive thru before going to my hotel. I ordered the Tops special which is a burger loaded with pastrami. As soon as I got... More
