I don't think of Mexican Food when i'm in SF.

Our son lived in this area for a while and suggested Tommy's for dinner after we worked up appetites playing in Golden Gate Park. We live in California's Central Valley and are very familiar with a wide variety of mexican food. It looked and smelled very familiar as we entered even though it... read 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.

The staff was friendly and welcoming. Freshly squeezed lime juice is used to make excellent margaritas. Yucatán steak was flavored perfectly. Would definitely go back.

I was recommended for the tequila offering which is amazing, I ordered the special of the days which was a culinary mouth explosion, the balance of flavour was genius thanks to Julio and team for a great experience

A nice, family-run and family-friendly joint with a great tequila selection! I like visiting here with friends young and old - simple, good, and pleasant.

The bright side of Tommy's, the food is amazing and the margaritas are delicious. Downside, they have so many people who come in that the service is rushed. I enjoyed my food but felt like they were trying to turn the table over quickly. If you want a yummy fast dinner though, I would recommend.

If you're a bartender and/or a fan of tequilas, then Tommy's Mex Restaurant is basically a no-brainer. A must visit if you're in San Fran. Great easygoing vibe and best margaritas I've ever had. Thanks Julio for the awesome service!

We were just looking for something good to eat and Tommy's had good reviews. This is an older establishment and the locals were hitting it hard. They serve authentic Mexican and Yucatecan cuisine. I'd say not as much Mexican food as the Yucatecan flavors really stood out. Kind of Mexican with a twist. The food was very good and different...... More

What more could you ask for then what they offer at Tommy's. Owner is good guy and very knowledgeable. If your looking for a real Mexican meal come here. On the next trip to San Fran let everyone know you are a city insider. Drink here!!
