Whats our Story?

It Started, Quite Simply, Like This...

After opening its doors in 1978 the original Hilltop Restaurant established itself as a renowned family restaurant in Hamilton. Located in the Mountain Plaza Mall, over the course of 33 years it became known for its home style breakfast, delicious Greek dishes, and many other tasty lunch and dinner options. At the same time it catered many events either in its banquet room or offsite locations. Owners Bill and Julie Spyridonakos served and became friends with many customers, all of which they considered their Hilltop family.

In June of 2009 it all came to an end as the restaurant was forced to close its doors due to the restructuring of the plaza. Over the next six years Bill along with his son George grew restless and tossed countless ideas back and forth. Now six years later Bill and George have re-opened the Hilltop but in a much smaller takeout setting, the Hilltop Express, now located at 1400 Upper James Street.

Bill’s many years of restaurant experience combined with George’s desire to offer fresh and healthy options in a takeout setting made the decision to finally re-open an easy one. Whether you are looking for an authentic Greek dish, a salad cut fresh in front of you, one of our homemade prime rib burgers ground right at the store, or our deliciously marinated BBQ chicken, we promise to provide delicious food with the same friendly customer service.

In addition we offer delivery and of course catering to meet our customer’s individual requests. Come in and try some of Hamilton's best mix of Greek and North American food, or feel free to give us a call at 289-520-0607 to pre-order or for any inquiries you may have.

Smaller Place, Same Great Taste
