Top Notch Austin uses its vintage inspirations to evoke a sense of nostalgia in those who visit it, and the restaurant's chicken burger recipe is able to add to that effect.

The restaurant itself has not changed since it opened in 1971, with red chairs, vintage paper cups and a generally nostalgic design being featured throughout. It features a chicken burger with a "secret recipe," but what is known is that it is cooked in a milk wash and with seasoned flower -- making for a soft crust and moist interior. The burger is offered with classic toppings including mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce and pickles.

By keeping an air of mystery surrounding its chicken burger, Top Notch Austin is able to emphasize its nostalgic quality.
