A PC Tradition. If you are downtown this is a must! Warm soft bun with a great hotdog topped off just the way you like it. Then a bag of Zapps chips for accompaniment. Can't beat it.

Visiting an antique store nearby when we saw several people going in and out of Tom's. Stopped in for lunch and was glad we did. Several different variations of hot dogs, hamburgers etc. My wife ordered a slaw dog and loved it. I ordered chili cheese dogs. Both were good and reasonably priced. It is a very small place so...

The hot dogs are great, but the chili cheeseburger is my recommendation. Never disappoints. Homemade sweet tea and pink lemonade are also must haves.

The restaurant was over crowded due to there 4 people behind the counter but only 2 working. I don't know if the air conditioner was broken but it was almost unbearably hot. Also one person in our party ordered the vegetarian chili dog which is clearly on the menu and they said they were out of the veggie chili. Then... More

Tom's Hot Dogs feels good. It makes you smile. The hot dogs are great and the people eating there are enjoying themselves. I go as often as I can when in the downtown area.

Tom's is known with us locals for it's hotdogs, but my favorite thing to get there is a hamburger! Dleicious, juicy and topped with your choice, their hamburger is one of the best I've had!

Tom's is a great place to eat hot dogs. Every variety of topping you have ever wanted is there. All the hot dogs I grew up eating: slaw dogs, chilli dogs, chilli dogs with corn chips, and more. Tiny little shop, but usually a place to sit inside or out - or take to go. It is fast food at... More

Friendly folks, good dogs, very limited seating. Small place but worth it. I go here at least once a month.

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
