The Beverly neighborhood has a relaxed small-town-in-1965 feel, and one of the contributing reasons is this dose of Americana, both old enough and friendly enough to be your grandmother. The namesake burger is old-school minimalist, a deeply satisfying quarter-pound patty of fresh ground round sauteed in its own juices and served with the simplest toppings—grilled onions and ketchup-mustard-pickle on a feather-light bun. Just as good are the fresh-cut fries, cooked in beef tallow, and as long as you’re dining as if it’s 1965, finish up with a thick chocolate shake.

Their grilled cheese tastes like my childhood. Almost literally nothing has changed in 20 years. . .
This place reminds me of Mel's Diner! Its a very nostalgic experience to dine in. Everything is from the 60's! However, I was impressed with the burger. It was tasty and for a neighborhood spot, very affordable to feed the family.
This is the classic hamburger pared down to its juicy, mouth-watering essence, the primogenitor per excellence. This is the burger you want when you don't want the latest chi-chi version with bells and whistles that take away from the taste of good beef -- the epicure carnivore's choice. A proper sesame-seeded bun, grill toasted, wraps handmade grilled beef cooked to the doneness of your choosing, with the appropriate toppings that enhance rather than distract. Excellent hand-cut fries. Yes, one of their terrific milkshakes would be great, but just as great is a classic Stewart's cream soda (less filling, too) that allows you to add well-made onion rings to your order. Sure, you could substitute the rings for the fries, but why choose when you can have both? Save the milkshake for another occasion. the rest of the menu's good too, but this is really why I go to Top Notch: they always do the beef justice.
