Fall is officially upon us. As temperatures drop, scarves make their reappearance, and leaves begin to change, satisfy your craving for a great meal with a view at the Tip Top Grill.

Located in Bluff Park just six miles from Samford University, this old gas-station-turned-restaurant has been attracting locals for years. And it’s easy to see why – the food is very reasonably priced, with hot dogs at just $1.65 and cheeseburgers only $2.25.

But we all know that a good restaurant is not just about the food – it’s about the atmosphere. While the inside of Tip Top Grill is eccentric, as it is decorated in a retro style, it’s really the outside view that keeps locals coming back.

Caban Irbine, a new employee at Tip Top, can’t recall a time when he didn’t come to the restaurant on a regular basis. “I’ve been here as long as I can remember,” Irbine said.

Another new employee, Joey Digiorgio, commented that there are many regulars that come in every day for a cup of coffee – which is only $0.95. The same people have been coming in for years.

“It’s a Tip Top thing,” Digiorgio said.

Whether stopping for a hearty meal or a light snack, you’ll surely find something for the right price at Tip Top Grill. While the locals recommend either the hotdogs or the cheeseburgers, Tip Top serves a legendary breakfast as well.

With such competitive prices accompanied by amazing views, you can’t go wrong with a taste from Tip Top!
