Could do much better with condiments - I HATE having to open small pastic wrappers...Hot Dogs good, better if you have school coupons to use.

Although small, huge on quality of food and service. Line is sometimes long, but it moves. Not only hot dogs but hamburgers and many other choices are offered. Almost everything is "home-made." Nothing out of a can. You may think the prices are a tad high, but everything is fresh and quality. Great place for dogs.

Tiny restaurant, very good hamburgers and hotdogs. Wish they had fries. Large selection of chips. Free drink refills. A landmark eatery in Panama City. Great staff.

There are very few old fashioned hot dog counters left. The food is basic but good. It is worth the effort if you just happen to be in old downtown Panama City.

Tom's is a great spot for a quick local lunch. The turkey dogs, chili cheese dogs, and burgers are outstanding. It helps to know to eat early (or late), the dining area is small and cannot seat too many people. Be patient with the line and the to-the-point cashiers and sit back and enjoy local lunch at its finest. You... More

Tom's is part of what makes American great a small, family owned business with excellent food. Yes they serve amazing hotdogs but it's the specialties like chilli pie and soups that make it great. We stop here a few times a month and have for years.

Good dogs, anyway you want. I liked the Chicago dog. Sauerkraut was awesome with New York dog. Family Owned and run. Really nice people. Clean and friendly.
