Good service

Good service and and good burgers. We each had the regular cheese burgers. If you have not been here previously make sure you know what comes standard on the burgers.

These guys put chili on their burgers, its supposed to be the signature thing that makes them special. I went for it and got a chili-fied cheese burger. The chili was bland and had the consistency of sticky peanut butter. It went everywhere. The burger was so/so. French fries tasted like they came out of a freezer bag.

On way to Las Vegas, I needed a place to stop for the night. The Tommy Burger location made the decision easy. The burgers were awesome, just as I remember (I now live in San Jose, so no Tommy Burgers around here...). They did a good job at creating the burger in all of its awesomeness. I can almost still...

When driving in to visit California from Las Vegas, we always make this place a must stop for lunch, the Chili Burgers are Fantastic, always fresh Fries too, good prices and fast, easy in when every other place is hammered with people.

Got in late to Barstow so was looking for a restaurant that was open. Thankfully I remember Tommy's which I had in LA. It was as I remembered. The burger was huge and though I was hungry could not finish it.

I stopped here on the way back from Nevada, just went through the drive through to bring some food home for later. The chili fries with cheese and tamale with cheese were almost as good heated up an hour later. That chili just can't be beat, so good and filling. The service was quick and accurate, no issues at all.... More

A great place to stop for gas and a meal is Lenwood Road in Barstow. They have all of the major gas stations like Chevron, Shell, etc. They also have a huge selection of restaurants to choose from. We normally stop at Del Taco so I can get my Bun Taco and Combo Cup, but we decided to eat at... More

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
