The line starts early (5ish) and their still standing in line at 7ish. I guess I will not be eating there because I am not going to stand in line for Tip Top. Maybe the celeb status will wear off... it always does. Now I am really wanting a CFS and onion rings!
My parents and grandmother have been regulars there since it opened and they told me the same thing they other day. Linda (the owner) said it has been crazy every single day since the Food network show, interesting enough she says it is a lot of out-of-towners/day trippers. Hopefully the line won't be as long after the vacation season is over.
But I think it is great, everytime I am in there...the average age is about 90, and there isn't a single person under the age of 40 in the place. The new generation needs to learn the meaning of "If it ain't fried, it aint' food"

We ate at Tip Top Sunday before last. Hadn't been in there for a few decades. It was 3 pm and 98 degs. We had to wait in line for about 20 mins outside. It was still as good as I remembered. I didn't know about the Food Network thing. No wonder it was so crowded. I asked about weekday lunch and was told to get there at 11 am or be prepared for the same drill. The owner said that around lunchtime the line was wrapped all the way around the building that Sunday.

Default Harry H. Rogers Jr. High

Trivia: Harry H. Rogers Jr. High on Galway housed 1st graders in 1960. I was in one of those classes but can't remember why I didn't go to Kate Schenck until 2nd grade. Anyone know?

Is the owner the one who's mother was murdered recently? If so I saw the " throw down with Bobby Flay" done here in town. The mother helped Bobby make puffy tacos or tortillas anyway. Sad story!
