If you knew me....you'd know I would like TOMMY'S as my last meal versus anything else...no joke!!! Been a customer for over 35 years and still loving it!!! Seemed like I was gonna faint during the 3 hour trip up but all was FINE once I finished my Mega Combo!!!!!

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

We stopped here to get a bite on our way home from Vegas. They are known for their chili burgers and my daughter said they are good. I thought it was just okay. It has been years since I ate at a Tommy's in L.A. The chili tasted like chili burgers I have had at other fast food restaurants. Their... More

The restaurant is an old diner type, lots of clean tables, but horrible food, service mediocre. We both ordered hamburgers, a double cheeseburger and an avocado burger w/cheese; absolutely no flavor and the buns were old and stale. I had two bites and was done, I wish I would have asked for my money back...that is how bad it was!!!
