Good Burger and Fries

Had their special, the Italian Mafia Burger, which was quite good. The cheese fries were quite good, really liked the cajun seasoning they add.

If you are looking for the best burger in town, Tommy's Burger Stop is where its at. Very friendly service. I normally get my orders to go because it could be really crowded in there. I have been here few times and I love this place.

This place was disappointing. Service is slow. The burger was pretty ordinary. Could've been a Costco patty. Side order of fries would not have filled up the smallest fry container at McDonalds, and was about the same quality. A popular hangout for young and hip...but nothing special about the burgers.

Every once in a while you just need a great burger and when you do, go here! There's a reason why Tommy's is voted best in town/best in state, the burgers are awesome! It's a tiny little place with just a couple of tables in a sketchy part of town, but well worth the visit. In the summer they have... More

Don't come for atmosphere, ambiance, or romance. Come for the burgers! And the onion rings. From the perfectly grilled buns to the fresh tomatoes, these burgers are crafted with love. Best described as a dive, the cramped dining room and uncomfortable seating were soon forgotten when we wrapped our lips around some of the tastiest burgers around. The onion rings... More

Burgers are good, but I've been told twice now that wait would only be 15 mins and I ended up waiting over an hour. I won't be back.

Called for a pick up order at 10 am- treating my staff to lunch. I was told that it would not be ready until 1:30- then was hung up on. Phone service was rude- I remember the food being pretty good 10 years ago when I lived in the neighborhood. I was also drunk every day and used to sip... More

Definitely a burger joint. Small, cramped, very little seating. What seating there is consists of a few small plastic picnic tables (inside). There's actually better seating outside. A good selection of early sixties rock and roll on the house speakers. A consistent flow of patrons picking up to-go orders and dining in. Definitely a local favorite. Service was very friendly....

I searched for this place because I had read that it had the best burger in Alaska. I guess I am going to have to disagree with the majority of the other raters because it definitely is not the best burger in Alaska. I'm not sure what is but this isn't. It was an ok burger. It appeared to be... More

Tommy's in my opinion, is one of three best joints in town for a burger. It's not fancy, it's not refined...it's just good, beefy, messy and daring burgers on a bun. And don't be a wallflower while you're there. Talk to poor guy who has no choice but to sit at your little plastic picnic table cuz there is nowhere... More
