Tom's hot dogs are so great. The servers are so friendly, and since the hot dogs are so great, the place is usually packed. I live the Frito pies, and there are so many different options to dress up your dog. If you're looking for a place to relax and eat a delicious hot dog, this is the place to... More

I ordered chili dogs that were excellent (finally a place that makes them without beans!) and my uncle ordered chili dogs with slaw and cheese. He said he could have done without the slaw as he ended up eating one of my chili dogs and preferring it. My son ordered a bacon cheeseburger and it was large as advertised. We... More

Such a great place to eat. Good dogs and burgers. Cheap and kid friendly, just tiny space so be prepared for a little waiting in line.

Tom's is authentic American fare. Great hotdogs of various kinds, with all the toppings you can think of, as well as delicious hamburgers. The place is small and not much to look at, but it's a local staple for the downtown area. Definitely worth a visit!

Toms has been an institution in downtown Panama City since 1981 and is a classic American food joint. It's great spot to grab a casual bite, but be prepared to take your order to go. There aren't many seats inside, and most are at the counter. There are a few sidewalk tables, which are lovely when the weather is nice.... More

Stopped here to try something new and check out downtown. The food was pretty good and the service was excellent. I would recommend it.

Tom's has been around for as long as I can remember. Best hot dogs in town, along with the hamburgers. Not a lot of seating, but the food is worth it!

Their cheeseburgers are every bit as good as their dogs, maybe better! They are huge, and very messy, but worth every bit of the mess. Just use a knife and fork!
