Great breakfast and entertaining servers.

Great place for breakfast. The omelets are awesome. The servers are funny with somewhat adult humor, but it's a good place to take your family.

Locals love this place. I go for breakfast. The Special-Special is my favorite. I recommend Tom & Joe's to everyone. They are only open for breakfast & lunch. Prices are very reasonable.

For those that don't get it. The sometimes loud and brash waitresses is their shtick. Food is always good and hot. It comes off the grill and to your table in under a minute. Lighten up people. Enjoy the show !
