This is a small place with some seating inside and a table or two out. The hot dogs are good and the experience is worth the trip.

Not a lot of choices for food on this street, so we took a chance and once again, found a hidden gem. The food is delicious and the staff/owners? are very obliging and will give you whatever variation you want. My hot dog had sauerkraut and onion with their special chilli sauce on the side. Yum!! I could have eaten... More

They are known for their hot dogs. However, I absolutely crave their chili and chicken salad!! When I worked close by, I would have lunch here two or three times every week. This is saying a lot because I am not a person that goes out for lunch very often. The staff is always friendly. I have been coming here... More

Small little place with big flavors! If you can make up a hot dog, they will fulfill your wish! The frito pie is amazing!!! Not a whole lot of places to sit but stays pretty hot when ordered to go.

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.
