This huge marquee will direct the tired and hungry traveler over to the Hilltop Steak House in Saugus. First opening for business in 1961, the Hilltop has some great food and features its side orders family style. The question remains though, who is Frank Giuffrida? 02-08


UPDATE 10/13 : As of today Sunday October 20, 2013, Frank Giuffrida's Hilltop Steak House will open and close its doors one last time. Yes, this Saugus, MA landmark is shutting down after 52 years.

For more information, see Roadside Peek's Spotlight on the Hilltop Steak House. 10-13

West Chester, PA is home to this union of Amish and BBQ. The place was Spartan like a Southern BBQ joint. It is certainly not upscale like Northern BBQ places. I guess this means it is the real deal. Maybe next time I am in the area, I will eat at Jakey's. 06-11
