I have been coming to Tops for over 30 years. It is clearly nested on Colorado Blvd. off the 210 Freeway offramp / onramp. This establishment is probably one of the best burger locations around. The service is quick and the burgers are very tasty....More

We stopped here for a quick late snack. Ordered the chili cheese fries, sweet potato fries and chicken taco. All were excellent. The chili cheese fries (small) was huge and could easily been shared by 2 people. The chicken taco was very flavorful.

So surprised the food was good. We happened to run across this food stop by accident while driving through Pasadena late one night. The cashier recommended the taco and pastrami burger. Both were equally delicious. We would not hesitate to eat there again..

Eat in, drive thru or order out. Sitting on old Route 66, this is an authentic classic place to visit for your burgers, dogs, sandwiches and fried sides (fries, onion rings, veggie sticks). This place is busy and I know why. The food is excellent!...More
