Hilltop Carryout


July 11, 1992|By Miles Gwyn

600 E. Fort Ave. Hours: 10 a.m.-2 a.m.

Sundays to Thursdays, 10 a.m.-3 a.m.

Fridays to Saturdays. (410) 752-1971. This small and friendly neighborhood restaurant between the Inner Harbor and Fort McHenry makes the best pizza I've ever eaten. Owners John, Michael and George Giorgakis were finalists in a 1991 statewide March of Dimes pizza contest.

A 10-inch pizza starts at $4.50, and the 16-inch Hilltop deluxe (10 toppings) tops out at $14.50.

The last time I was there, the neighborhood policeman stopped by for lunch. I figured he knows where to eat in South Baltimore. He ordered a chicken gyro, so I did the same. (It's $3.70, as is the regular gyro). It was big, thin-sliced, tender and smothered with a honey mustard sauce. The regular gyro is served with satziki, a Greek sauce of sour cream, garlic and cucumber.

The Hilltop offers a long list of subs. A half cheese steak (rib eye) is $3.45, a whole is $6.90. On pita, it's $3.70. Other subs include Italian steak, pepper steak, hamburger, roast beef, turkey, Polish ham, Italian sausage, meatball or cold cut, tuna, shrimp and crab cake.

Spaghetti dishes, with garlic bread, come with marinara sauce ($3.95), meatballs, meat sauce or mushrooms ($4.75) or veal cutlet ($5.25).
