Original Tops is a fast food restaurant that serves giant sized everything. Being a first timer here, I aimed for a “safe choice” and got a cheese burger, bun-less. So it’s the patty, lettuce, tomato, onions, thousand island dressing (mm my favorite burger dressing!). Pretty simple burger, so it almost feels as if I’m eating an In-N-Out burger. The taste is good. The meat has a spicy and smoky flavor to it.

Since everything is sold separately here, I ordered a side of onion rings, thinking it’s just a handful little rings that I’ll probably still have room for with the burger. Lo and behold, when they called my number to pick up my order, I got…scared…looking at the huge portion of giant sized onion rings on my tray. There must’ve been like 15 huge and thick deep fried battered onion rings that could feed my entire group of friends. Granted, they are delicious – crispy just the way I like my onion rings. But it’s just too much. I was only able to eat two. Even with sharing, I still had a lot leftover to bring home. Sometimes you feel like this is how you get your money’s worth, but is it worth it blowing up your stomach over? 😛

My friend was in the same shoes, but she went for a large order of fries. She probably didn’t know it was actually really large. 😀 These fries are good, however. I always love shoestring fries because they are crispy, not too filling, and easy to eat.

We also shared these chilli cheese fries. The so-called “small” sized portion is also huge. I’m starting to question this restaurant’s comprehension of the word “small.” But I was impressed that the fries, buried under layers of chilly and cheese, managed to stay crispy.

Deep fried zucchini. Also delicious. Though the batter they use makes everything really crispy, at the same time, it is just a little too filling. I’d love to eat every single piece but I had to consider my …heart. 😛

Yup. I was surprised we were still able to walk after all this food. 😀
