“A step into the past”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012 via mobile

This is a great diner. The food was great, service was nice and fast. People were friendly and made me feel welcomed The place was like blast from the past, like old diner when I was a kid ( 56 now ) lots of old memorabilia on the walls that took me way back. I'll go back again real soon. You should try it instead of fast food.

“Classic 70's diner with awesome food...and Tommy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

I can't believe I've never written a review for Tommy's. We've been coming here for the past 5 years, mainly for breakfast. I've had waffles, pancakes, omelets, eggs benedict, etc....ALL GOOD! Tommy is from Greece so he makes a mean gyro also. He's usually there working the floor. Tommy's is helping to keep that neighborhood from going downhill. They are only open for breakfast and lunch.

“Great Diner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

Love this place. It is a true diner. Great diner food with different specials every day. All of the staff are very friendly. Tommy, the owner, is always there taking peoples' payments and mingling among patrons. Do yourself a favor and check this place out!
