Hill Top Café
The decor is roadhouse funk with a side of live music at this former gas station, where bluesman Johnny Nicholas and his wife, Brenda, have served up delectable Cajun-Greek fusion dishes for over forty years. Some of our recent favorites include the pan-sauteed Gulf shrimp on a bed of pilaf with stewed okra; juicy chicken-fried steak with an excellent crust-to-steak ratio; and a righteous New York strip topped with Gulf blue crab in beurre blanc. Kefalotyri saganaki—flaming Greek cheese—is a fun starter, particularly when paired with some mixed olives. Texas sheet cake is for dessert purists, but we opted for the Almond Joy Bomb, made with chocolate cake, coconut ice cream, toasted almonds, and chocolate syrup.
