To celebrate their 60th anniversary, The Original Tops on East Colorado in Pasadena will be rolling back the price of their Tops Special Burger, which means diners can land a delicious deal: The burger will be a mere 60 cents Friday and Saturday (October 19-20).

It's one of the most popular items on the menu at Tops, which opened in Pasadena in 1952. The Tops Special is a quarter-pound old fashioned hamburger, and is served with lettuce, fresh tomatoes, sweet red onion, dill pickle and homemade Thousand Island Dressing, and is topped with Tops' Pastrami, mustard and American cheese.

Of course, it's not exactly a burger free-for-all--there are a few restrictions. The burgers are available while supplies last, the limit is one Tops Special per guest, and is available for dine-in and take-out only (not in the drive-thru).

If it's been a while since you've had a burger in Pasadena, Friday and Saturday might be good days to take care of that!
