Back in my high school days we would eat at the original location on Rampart in Los Angeles every weekend. That's how hooked we were on these chili burgers. Since they had one here in Barstow I decided to use the drive thru and order my usual double cheese with extra pickles and chili fries. This is a warning DO... More

If you want your taste buds happy and your cholesterol to go up eat at Tommie's. I had the chili cheese fry which was so good but a bit on the greasy side. My family had the chili burgers and hot dogs.

Tommy's is a great place to enjoy a Chili burger, however, the amount of Chili in the burger will slow you down for a while. The food is great but you might be a little sleepy throughout the day, it feels like thangsgiving after I eat.

Try Tommy's you won't be let down. We stopped at Tommy's on our way back home and we're happy we did! Tommy's has great chili and put it on just about everything. I would suggest sitting down in the restaurant and enjoying it, it seems to be difficult to eat in the car. Tommy's is a great alternative to the... More

I must begin by saying that I took an antacid before I ate there. It's the same food from the 1940's, when the first one opened in Los Angeles. I haven't eaten at a Tommy's in over 10 years, so I knew what to expect. The hamburgers, hot dogs, tamales, fries, all can come with bean-less chili that is tasty.... More

I don't get the Tommy's thing at all but my husband loves it. So on our way to Vegas we stopped in for a quick snack. The place was really clean and the workers were friendly. I got cheese fries which was simply not worth the 800 calories. My husband got some flaming hot burger that he loved. I took... More

This is no better or worse than any Tommy's location these days. That's not saying much. Tommy's used to be quite the place but the quality of the food has plummeted. The burgers are not appetizing & the famous chili is just a foul paste. This place stays in business somehow, though. Maybe it gets some overflow from the In-n-Out... More
