For $10 we got two dogs and a mashed potato tornado. Very good and only a block from our restaurant. There are long lines at lunch and dinner so maybe go at an off time. You won't regret it.

We stopped first at Colliers and bought a six-pack of local Victory Summer Love beer ... A surprisingly hoppy summer citrus ale and the stood in line right before it closed. I had the kraut bowl ... Mashed potatoes topped with sauerkraut and a dog stuck in the middle. Jeni had the tornado dog ...a bun with the same plus... More

Our kids don't mind waiting in line because the dogs are that good I prefer the thin ones, but the multitude of toppings are so fun and delicious!

Tommy's may be known for its ridiculously good hot dogs, but you need to try the mac and cheese! We renamed it stupid mac and cheese because it's so stupid good! The long wait in line is worth it for a Jersey Slaw Dog and mac and cheese. So good!

What a great idea combining hot dogs, a multitude of toppings, wit and the ocean view and breeze. Hot dog Tommy's is all that and more. But be prepared the hours are unusual and you may be on a long line. Check out the hours of operation as well as the menu offerings. We enjoyed this place at lunch time... More

When I got in line I could all ready smell the great food. I have been getting hotdogs and slushes almost everyday. They are my favorite meal at the beach I recommend this place for anyone who likes delicious combinations of toppings and drinks for a refreshing day at the beach.

Great food...owner should let go and let other people do their jobs....lines can get long and from what I saw it's b/c owner wants to do everything instead of letting each person working for him do what they are supposed to do.

You go to Hot Dog Tommy's for the dogs and Tommy's personality, but you've got to try the Potato Tornado...OMG it's awesome! You'll be waiting in line unless you've got good timing, but it's worth it.
