Opened in 1938 and passed down through three generations of the same family, the Tip Top was brought to national attention in 2008 by the Food Network’s Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. Its 15 minutes of fame never went to the restaurant’s head, however—it’s still the same down-home spot, serving generous portions of dishes like roast pork, chicken and dumplings, and—the most praised—chicken-fried steak. The house-made pies are a big hit too. Note: This isn’t an after-hours diner. The locals come early, and the place closes by 8pm on Saturday night.
