Too hasty with Tops? Yes.

In my first review of Tops Truck, I gave them 2.5 honks because I didn't take the menu as very original, despite generally enjoying my food.  After a return visit today, I realized may have been too harsh because I haven't really held that standard for anyone else.  I mean, take Dorothy Moon for example -- an unbelievable burger scored them 4 honks on the first try, and what's particularly original about a burger (other than DC had been craving a burger truck.)

So today I took the opportunity to make another trip while enjoying some lovely weather at Farragut Square, and man is that chili good!  Not real spicy, but a nice tang with tomatoes, a few green peppers, and pinto beans.  For me it topped french fries and well melted cheese.  Don't plan on eating it all yourself.  Correcting my earlier mistake by bumping from 2.5 to 3.5 honks purely for the chili.  (Sorry folks for the earlier comments, but I really thought the bun needed help.)
