I needed some Lamb recently. Who knew in an area with so many diverse cultures that lamb would be so hard to find in your local grocery store. A Meat Department Manager at Von's once told me about this place. THANK YOU! You'll never have to compromise again when it comes to having what you want, Tip-Top has it, or will get it for you!

Tip Top has been here for a long time and has always been good. I like coming here for lunch. The market is great too. I knocked off a star just because the restaurant is old and really should be updated inside.

This is a great place to buy the best meats and also upscale, imported, or hard to find ingredients and spices. The food at the deli is delicious and inexpensive.

Tip Top is one of my local favorites for their market and little deli. They have the best butcher shop in North County and always have what I need. They have a great selection of European products in the market and hard to find spices and sauces. I love the walk up deli style restaurant. It is super casual and inexpensive with most meals under $10. The veal cordon bleu is a bargain as well as their extensive breakfast menu. You can even buy a steak out of the butcher case and they will cook it for you. Good desserts and bakery items.

A GREAT value, gourmet European meat dishes served lunch counter style. Cheap and good. Not the best atmosphere, in the back of a grocery store

There isn't a word to describe this place. It's like market, deli, restaurant in one. Wonderful product selection, great service, and fun atmosphere. You get to pick what you want and you can either take it home, or have them cook it up for you! awesome!

Generous portions and grilled to your specification. You select the meat and they season and cook it right there for you. They also have a wide selection of imported beer and alcohol. A good place to check out at least once.

This is the place to shop for top of the line cuts of meat or special ingredients for that party or dinner party.This place has a great meat counter and deli where you can try some awesome home cooked meals.This is a popular favorite for locals and those who do catering like myself.You always know that the meat is fresh and tender.Also, if you are trying a new meat , they will instruct you on how to prepare it or they will cook and slice it for you!

We love this place, you can pick out your steak from the counter & they'll cook it right up for you! Wonderful deli & market as well, so you can have a meal there or take home what you need. Nice people too!

Whata deli! A must for any Oktoberfest celebration!! From brats to beer and every mustard under the sun, Tip Top is definitely at the top. Stop in for their all-you-can eat "Big John's" breakfast special....too much food for very little money.
