Digital Storytelling and Visitor Analytics for City and Cultural Institutions
Not much has changed at Top Notch. The red chairs, red trays, and curbside service have all been at work in this family owned restaurant since 1971. Hey - "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
The most popular item on the menu has stayed the same since 1971: the #2 cheeseburger.
Filmed here in 1993 is Matthew McConaughey's first line uttered on the silver screen. Wooderson pulls up in a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS nicknamed “Melba Toast,” and invites our main characters to a party.
Once the pretty girl in the driver's seat accepts, Wooderson says his most iconic line: "Alright alright alright."
You can see the scene for yourself below.
Top Notch is open 11:00AM to 10:00PM seven days per week.
