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

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!!

I've visited Tommys Mexican about every oyher time I visit SF! My aunt, who lived there from 1962 til her recent passing raved over the food! We had to try it out! Its way out on the western end of town, The Richmind, but worth the drive! Parking may be your biggest issue although I've gotten a space directly in... More

If you're into tequila, and I mean really into tequila, this is the place. No frills, but seriously knowledgable and stocked with the distilled fruits of the blue agave. Lots of good tequila drinks on the menu, but these guys prefer it straight. Food is good enough, but go for the bar.

Wow, get over to Tommy's. Be prepared to stand behind the bar, because seats are few and coveted. The bar men are awesome and will take you on a great tequila trip. Watching someone take 5 shots of the homemade habanyero tequila was one of the most funny moments I have had at a bar.

My son recently moved to SF and he discovered Tommy's Mexican Restaurant. He took me there on a visit, and as soon as we walked in, I felt like we were in old SF, which was great. It was a cozy restaurant, and it was a perfect place to sit and have lunch and a good conversation. The portions were... More
