Drinks good, Food so-so

If you like to drink, this is a great restaurant. However, if you like to eat, then no. We were not really impressed with the food here, but our margarita were pretty strong.

This place is a real hidden gem in the Richmond area of San Fran north of Golden Gate Park, and off the beaten tourist track. Boasting an incredibly large selection of tequilas, and excellent Mexican food, it's a real treat to experience. Definitely recommended for the traveler looking for something different.

This restaurant is awesome! A must go in SanFran for food or tequila! They have it all. Friendly staff and great ambience as well. Suggestion: Ceviche and enchiladas.

We were recommended to Tommy's as a placed that served great margaritas, so thought it would be rude not to try it out. Beware, this restaurant is a fair trek out of the city centre - it took about 20 minutes in a cab. We did not expect this (our hotel suggested a 10 minute walk) and although our intention... More

Carne asada was delicious and came with no dairy in the sides like I asked. Friendly staff. This place rocks it with tequila if that's your thing.

Okay Mexican food. Service was great. Waiters and servers were very personable. I had a beef burro which came with rice in it. Beef was overdone and I dislike rice as a filler in a burro.

Amazingly strong margaritas. I love that they are family owned and the owners daughter gave us souvenir shot glasses since we were visiting from Texas for our anniversary. Very personable staff even though they were so busy. Good food and met some great people eating nearby.

For anyone who likes great tequila then this is a place of pilgrimage. An incredible selection of tequilas lovingly assembled and curated by Julio Bermejo. The bar is tiny and regularly pretty bustling with locals, tequila-heads and a motley crew of hospitality people. They have an Agave Appreciation Society that you should join and learn while drinking. Or drink while... More

This place boasts being in the world's top 50 bars list some years ago. That may very well be. However, it would also probably make a bottom 50 worst Mexican restaurants. Which is inexcusable for a city like San Francisco, which is teeming with Mexican eateries. I think Tommy's has been resting on its laurels far too long. Sure, it's... More

After walking for miles we really needed a quick dinner that the entire family would enjoy. Tommy's was it. It's the only Mexican restaurant we could find for blocks. We're from AZ, and pretty spoiled when it comes to Mexican food, but Tommy's was good, basic Mex.
