To talk off the top of one's head means to say what first comes to one's mind immediately without much thought.

 

For instance, if I asked people to name an American cuisine off the top of their head, they may say hamburgers or hot dogs because they're the food that people commonly associate with us, and are probbaly the first dishes that they will think of.
