New Hutto is about to get a taste of Old Austin. Iconic burger and fried chicken restaurant Top Notch will open a location next year in the Hutto Co-Op District, a 35-acre mixed-use development that will also be home to the new Hutto City Hall.

The new location of the longtime Burnet Road burger joint memorialized in “Dazed and Confused” will join Co-Op tenants Southside Market & Barbecue of Elgin and Flix Brewhouse.

The owners intend to transport the classic feel of the original to the new location, including aesthetic and service touches like the neon signage and car-hop stations.

Frances and Ray Stanish opened Top Notch in 1971, and Frances sold it to the team behind Galaxy Cafe in 2010.
