“Great Food Huge Portions”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

I was in the mood for a simple dinner, good fast cheap. Tops is tops in all three areas. Had the pastrami as suggested by many others, I must agree some of the best pastrami I have ever tasted. The small onion rings was a mountain of breaded fried goodness. Service was fast and friendly with a slime. Do not go looking for shiny silver and white linen. Go for good food!

“The best Pastrami in the business.”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Pastrami to die for, fast service, burgers that satisfy, fries come in a mountain, onion rings crispy and flavorful. This place is tops. Been back three times, but first review.

“Great Pastrami Sandwich”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Every time I visit Pasadena, I HAVE to stop at Tops! To date, I have not found a better Pastrami sandwich, made like it should be made. They also have burgers and other offerings (portions are huge!), but I'm stuck on the Pastrami.

“TOPS is the Tops”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

The portions here really are large so beware before you order, this is also a small restaurant and gets busy really quick. I was driving by and decided to stop after seeing that it was busy (which is usually a good sign) and I made a good decision, as the food was excellent. We ordered the Tosada Salad with Carne Asada and let me tell you this is not a salad for one person, the only thing is I wished they had better dressing choices (like a cilantro avocado dressing!?) I watched as they put plenty of pastrami on the sandwiches and the burgers looked good sized as well. Come hungry and you will not leave disappointed.

“Beware of the Portions -Huge!”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

Excellent value! The food is great and the portions generous for the price. Be patient though as it can get a bit crowded in the evenings.
