The Nakuru Top Fry AllStars, commonly known as Nakuru AllStars, Top Fry AllStars or simply Top Fry, are a Kenyan professional football club based in Nakuru, that competes in the Kenyan Division One, the second tier of football in Kenya.
In 2010, Kenyan Robert Muthomi reformed and revived the club and its name with a selection of players at under-15 level. Muthomi is a player's representative who includes Kenyan international Patrick Oboya amongst his clients. The club receives media attention from Denmark as prominent sports website Bold.dk co-founder Pierre Vendelboe is an investor in the club. Vendelboe was part of a consortium which purchased the football club AC Nakuru, and included and merged it with the rest of the Nakuru AllStars club.
Among the members of the new technical staff is Sammy Nyongesa who was a player with the original team in 1969 when it last won the league. He has also previously coached the Kenya national football team and is known in Nakuru for running the Youth Olympic centre that produced such as players as Ambrose Ayoyi and John Muiruri.
In 2011, the Nakuru AllStars played in the FKL Nationwide League. When the new owners owners came in the former team had amassed 9 points from 12 matches and were firmly in the relegation spot but by the end of the season the team had gained 39 points to finish in position 10 out of the 16 teams that made the league under the tutelage of former Kenyan international Simon Mulama.
On 8 May 2013, the Nakuru AllStars signed a sponsorship deal with Menengai Oil Refineries, and through their Top Fry brand, changed the team's name to Nakuru Top Fry AllStars.
