This diner has been in Beverly since 1942, and any burger joint that remembers Kominsky Park and has outlasted both Daley administrations deserves our respect and admiration. The burgers at Top-Notch aren't particularly life-changing, but they are tasty, and there’s scientific evidence that eating a burger and fries with a shake that comes in one of those giant metal mixing cups can automatically increase serotonin levels by 56%. Our go-to order is the basic beef burger, which comes with lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, pickles, and either grilled or raw onions.
