Hilltop Steakhouse

The Hilltop Steakhouse, founded in 1961 by Frank Giuffrida, was a at one time, America’s largest restaurant, both in number of customers served and sales volume. On a typical Saturday, the Hilltop, served up to 7,800 meals. It served nearly 2.4 million customers annually, three times the volume of the nation’s second-largest restaurant.  This is a sketch of the locally famous sign on Route 1 in Sagus, Massachusetts. A giant, 68 foot tall neon saguaro cactus sign that is still standing today well after the restaurant closed it’s doors.
