Hilltop Inn

A south-city staple since 1939, Hilltop Inn, on the corner of Morganford Road and Loughborough Avenue, draws mostly a bar crowd at night, when the menu offers made-to-order burgers grilled right before the diner's eyes. Stepping foot into this neighborhood hangout calls to mind a place "where everybody knows your name," with smiling regulars and a warm atmosphere, dimly lit by the low neon glow of more Bud signage, a corner jukebox and flat screens, always tuned to the ball game. During the day, Hilltop's lunch specials provide a chance to enjoy homestyle cooking on the quick. Specials vary depending on the day but range from rigatoni or top round beef on Monday to chicken breast and pork loin on Thursday. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come prepared: Hilltop only accepts cash.
