An Evansville eatery has been named the "Manliest Restaurant in America." The men's lifestyle Web site Asylum.com, which is operated by AOL, says the Hilltop Inn has won the honor for 2009 in an online vote. The Web site's editor says the fried brain sandwich helped put the restaurant over the top. He says there's something about it "that's guaranteed to put hair on your chest."
Our partners at the Evansville Courier & Press reports the owners say they sell 13,000 pork brain sandwiches a year.
The Hilltop Inn captured nearly 67 percent of the 50,000 votes cast online.
It beat out restaurants from San Francisco, Boston and Arlington, Virgina in the final round of the competition.
