Dazed and Confused Memorabilia, Annual Screening

Top Notch Burger hosts a Dazed and Confused movie viewing every year on April 20. They show it on the "TV" painted on the outside wall. They also have a showcase of memorabilia from the film.

Car Hops, Burgers, Dazed and Confused

Literally the best burger I've ever had. Fries were on point too. Order the "top pick," sounds weird but it's perfect.

Burger love is notoriously subjective, but Top Notch is an Austin institution, and was a location in the 1993 film "Dazed & Confused."
