We've tried all the burger places in Lompoc and this is our favorite. I took 1-star away only because it's the only burger place with servers. It's nice not to have to leave a tip, and not to wait for drink refills. Other than that-food is excellent! You get SO MANY FRIES! And the A - Z Burger Menu is... More

Nice café with lots of selections. For lunch I had mushroom burger with grilled onions, but with BBQ sauce instead of the regular sauce. The burger was juicy and tasty! We asked if my husband and I should have a half basket of fries - no a quarter basket is plenty - she was correct.

Best burgers in Lompoc ABSOLUTELY. plenty of options actually A-Z a burger for each letter. Affordable big portions and service with a smile. IF you are in Lompoc and are needing lunch go to Toms Burgers you will not be sorry. G and X most popular options. Basket of fries is big enough for a family, get a half order.

This place has been a favorite of mine for over 25 years, maybe closer to 30 years. People associate Tom's with hamburgers, but if you want a surprise go in and try their breakfasts. Great food at good prices.

The menu has a burger listed alphabetically, hence 26 different burgers. There are also a variety of sandwiches and of course along with soft drinks a variety of bottled beer!

Many people told me this was the best burger place in town. I have to disagree. Sure they have some unique burger toppings (peanut butter, ect) but the burger itself is not that great - like a frozen pattie or something. Eddie's is better or take a drive to Village Burger.

"What can I get you, Sweetie?" makes for a great start to top-notch customer service at Tom's... equally matched by the fun menu of "educated burger" choices that each hold their own in the "yum" department. Ordering onion rings is a must... Some of the best I've tasted. A down-home vibe is felt in this cozy, family owned and operated... More

Wow! Many different hamburgers to choose from and hard to decide. I tried the mushroom/cheese burger, and he had the peanut butter!?# Both of us left happy and full. Truly a Lompoc tradition
