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.

I've heard nothing but great things about this place in all my 43 years of living here in Panama City. Well, my 10 year old son and I decided to try it out. We went about 3 on a Saturday afternoon. It was a little crowded but we did find a seat. Two ladies were working behind the counter and... More

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

My husband loves their burgers! I really like the dog with chili. It doesn't look like much at first... but dig in and enjoy!!

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.

Great place to pop in for a Hot Dog. There's usually a line out the door but service is quick so don't let it scare you off. You can get 6", 8"or foot long. Chile kraut dog or chili cheese dogs are excellent If you're jonesin for a dog this is the place

The menu is limited. The food price is low ($2.69 for a chili slaw dog) although at $1.89 for a medium Pepsi, I think the drink prices are a little out of line (gotta make your money somewhere). I have no problem with the atmosphere - I would describe it as quaint - it's a hotdog stand after all. I... More

We have been in Panama City since 1996 and the only thing disappointing about Tom's is the lacking of indoor seating. The cheesedog is great, wonderful burgers, sweet tea, chili, etc. If you want a good hotd dog or burger, you won't be let down.
