Close to the Flying J. Nice change of pace compared to mainstream burger places. Super nice service. Love their style of chilli.

I never miss a chance to stop at this Tommy's on rips to Southern California. Great food! I wish they'd come to N. Cal. Good for breakfast too. Get the burger without chile if you're eating in the car.

We always have to stop to get our fill of TOMMY'S! It is the BEST Tasting Burgers with the Best chili and fries! I always request extra chili on the burger. The people are always so welcoming, friendly with sincere appreciation of our visits. We travel from UT to CA frequently & look forward to this stop going back and... More

You will love the friendly service you get at Tommy's. Their specialty is chili, but their chili is not everyone's cup of tea, so don't be afraid to hold the chili on your burger or hot dog. Best hot dogs in town and the tamale is another offering you won't find in many places.

If you love chili, Burgers, french fries. Okay, chili anything. It's Original Tommy's. I've been eating Tommy's since my late night party days of the 70's. No better place to pig out than Tommy's. If you don't want chili (why are you here?) you must request "no chili".

If you don't like chili, then you don't need to go to Tommy's. Going to college in SoCal, I was introduced to Tommy's after late night fraternity parties. I like chili so this was good midnight eats. Now living in Arizona, I always stop by Tommy's whenever there's one on my way to Cali. Tip: Since all burgers and hot... More

So as many people know the Linwood exit is an easy place to fuel up on both food and gas. We were on our way back from California heading to Las Vegas when we made a pit stop. Family wanted some "FAST" food but what we got is a long line and some rude people. (not all the uncommon at... More

A chili cheeseburger is the right answer to so many questions - even for breakfast in Barstow. A breakfast burrito for good measure - and some chili to take home? The start to great day's drive north.

These guys put chili on their burgers, its supposed to be the signature thing that makes them special. I went for it and got a chili-fied cheese burger. The chili was bland and had the consistency of sticky peanut butter. It went everywhere. The burger was so/so. French fries tasted like they came out of a freezer bag.

On way to Las Vegas, I needed a place to stop for the night. The Tommy Burger location made the decision easy. The burgers were awesome, just as I remember (I now live in San Jose, so no Tommy Burgers around here...). They did a good job at creating the burger in all of its awesomeness. I can almost still...
