Riverfront Times' Description

This Soulard hole-in-the-wall offers standard bar-and-grill fare - burgers, steaks and sandwiches - as well as a few Serbian dishes, courtesy of owner Djorde "George" Korac. Cevapcici are meaty Serbian sausages, served here over grilled pita rounds with red pepper, tomato, onion and feta cheese. The same sides accompany the shish kebab, basted with a smoky, mildly sweet sauce. The fried chicken, too, is a standout. Overall, the menu is executed well enough to have earned Tip Top Food & Spirits the RFT's award for "Best Bar Food" in 2008. This proficiency in the kitchen may also be a reason why Tip Top has gone a different path than many of its dive-bar competitors: Smoking is no longer allowed here. There are two lovely patios (one covered, the other open) for dining, and drinking, al fresco.

Owner Djordje "George" Korac's nods to both halves of his Serbian American heritage. Enjoy... More >>
