Tommy J prepares some of the best burgers in Davis. The menu includes other items ... but the burgers are always a good bet.

While visiting Davis we've tried a number of places. This place has a cafe mixed with a bar feel. A little different, but it works. Tommy J's (name of the kitchen) is inside of Froggy's Bar so it's a little weird when you walk up if you are in the right place. I ordered the Firehouse Burger. It was very... More

Met up with family and we were a group of 10. It is a small place but they were very attentive and welcoming to us on a busy Saturday. The selection of burgers and flavors is great and everyone in our group was well satisfied by both the taste and experience. Ten days later my husband and I were passing... More

Stopped for dinner at 6 and it was 106 degrees outside so we were miserable. Stepped in and got seated, drinks, ordered and got food within 10 minutes! Food was rockin'! Hamburgers were like the homemade kind- thick, juicy, lots of bacon. Fries were unbelievable and not greasy???!!! Even had a cocktail that wasn't watered down. Servers were pleasant and... More

I've been going to burgers and brews for years. Just went to froggys/ tommy J ,,, OH MY!!! I LOVE The burger, I thought the mojito needed a little more mint and bartender accommodated :) My husband still prefers B and B because they have the better beer selection, but in my opinion tommy j has best burger

Big juicy burgers! Great staff! Great bar! Always friendly and delicious! Would never go anywhere else in Davis for a night of burgers and drinks. Restaurant during the day and a fun bar at night! I have been going here every year for my birthday since living in Davis.

Loved the casual atmosphere of this place. Had a salad one day and an appetizer the next. The waitresses there were so nice. They have trivia night on Wednesday nights and it appeared very popular. The beer was cold, they even had decent wine. Highly recommend if you just want to sit and watch people shopping around the downtown.

Thank GardenDee
