Big juicy burgers! Great staff! Great bar! Always friendly and delicious! Would never go anywhere else in Davis for a night of burgers and drinks. Restaurant during the day and a fun bar at night! I have been going here every year for my birthday since living in Davis.

These are flat out the best burgers you will find in the area. All the food is great. The staff and Tommy himself are wonderful.

Loved the casual atmosphere of this place. Had a salad one day and an appetizer the next. The waitresses there were so nice. They have trivia night on Wednesday nights and it appeared very popular. The beer was cold, they even had decent wine. Highly recommend if you just want to sit and watch people shopping around the downtown.

Met my daughter here for beer, burgers and NCAA basketball. The staff was attentive and put "my" game on the tv. The selections of burgers were amazing and the buffalo burger was to die for. What a perfect spot for my birthday!!

This is by far the best burger place EVER! Huge burgers. Good prices. Bar and grill but good even for families. The employees are so so so so awesome! I have never ever had a bad experience and I go here often. Even my vegetarian/vegan friend loved their garden burger and said it was the best veggie burger he has... More

Tommy J's is a small restaurant with a split personality. The restaurant, which is usually packed with UC Davis students, is co-located with Froggy's Bar. The bar itself is located at the far end of a room with 15 high tables, a juke box along one wall and 4 wall-mounted televisions tuned to sports channels. No booths. No hanging ferns.... More

Okay! Just ate at Tommy J's again!!!! We had the jalapeno burger & it was totally over the top!!! I'm in burger bliss!!! Tommy J just does it right from the Neiman Ranch beef handcrafted burger to the Oh so crispy buttered buns complemented with homemade toppings. It's amazing that a guy that can turn out such consistently awesome food... More

Another great dive. Tommy J's is actually an independently run restaurant housed inside of a great bar, Froggy's. Very simple menu, centered around burgers, chicken breast, or gardenburgers served in about 10 different combinations, but the burgers take center stage. Juicy, cooked to order, and served on a buttered toasted hard roll, they're some of the best I've had, anywhere.... More
