The décor was retro and the burgers and sandwiches were good. We went shortly before closing time (mid-afternoon) and were not at all rushed. But the area didn't look good, and what looked like a hooker to us was waiting for her take-out order while her flock of kids waiting in the car, running out front. We were going to... More

This diner is always busy, so I prepared to wait, especially because I preferred a booth. The owner is busy greeting EVERYONE that comes thru the door, making sure everyone is 'okay' (he actually asks this), while waiting in line for their favorite meal. There is a small bar in the center of this small diner, with counter seating for... More

A step into the past with the food to match. Tommy's is a busy fun and friendly place to take friends and family. Burgers and fries good specials and quick service. Breakfast lunch or dinner alwsy worth the trip

Whenever I'm in downtown Columbus I always try to stop by for breakfast or lunch. Classic diner with comfort food, daily specials, and Greek dishes. There are no strangers here. Your just as likely to be seated next to a state or city official as the many regulars who frequent Tommy's. Always try to save room for a baklava sundae!... More

Every time my husband & I are in Columbus we try to fit in breakfast at Tommy's. The food is always excellent with good portions for a fair price & the staff is friendly. We called ahead on one visit with a party of 8 & they were very accommodating, getting us seated as quickly as possible. I highly recommend... More

Tommy's Diner is a must experience in Columbus. We're always made to feel at home. Food always great. Interesting atmosphere and Buckeye Pride oozes from this little gem in Franklinton.

The food is great, servings ample, service is great. Tommy is so welcoming - as is the rest of the staff. The prices are really reasonable. You can order off the menu or off the specials board. A real diner. Set at the counter, a booth or table.

My husband and I hit this cozy, family owned restaurant every couple weeks or so - even though it is 45 minutes from our house. The menu is extensive and they always have 4-5 specials on the board for lunch and on weekends for breakfasts. I have noticed that their specials seem to be getting more creative in the last... More

My brother and I just wanted a quick bite, and we went to the right spot. Even with the line at the door, they really moved the line. We sat quickly, and were greeted fast. Lots of daily specials on the big board, and everything coming out looked good. As busy as they were, we were treated like old regulars.... More
