“Proper old diner a real treat”
Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

We visited this place based on a guidebook review and it didn't disappoint. Have the Zweiglers, root beer and ice cream - for 2 we only spent $15 and felt full and happy. Also everything here is original - only one of 8 in a New York chain. This one in Avon was founded in 1955 and still has an original, unique feel. Plus the young staff looked happy to serve which added to the experience.

“His Root Beer brings back good memories”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

TripAdvisor Reviews helped us find this outstanding place. The Root Beer just had to be drank in the frosty cold glass mug....the only way to drink this perfect drink. The Burger was HUGE and delicious. I had the Mushroom/Swiss and hubby had the Wahl Burger. The time of day that we were there was before the mad rush,,,,lucky us. Staff was so helpful and friendly. We were both busting our buttons after our meal....Would go back there in a New York minute.

“Tom Wahl's never disappoints!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

For our July 4th outing we saw "42" - a perfect movie for Independence Day and then went with family for a mid-afternoon meal at Tom Wahl's in Avon. There were 7 of us and we had a variety of treats - sat in the outdoor pavilion and played some games in between main course and dessert (milkshakes and ice cream ate THE BEST at TW's). It was the perfect place for a meal on an all American Holiday.

“Go to the McDonalds Instead”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Let me start with the positive: Friendly service.

The Bad: I ordered the vegetarian burger and a soft drink, and my husband ordered the double burger, a side of curly fries, and had their "famous root beer". We were both baffled by how awful the food was (with the exception of my soda made by another company and the curly fries also probably made by another company and reheated here). My husband spit out the root beer with his first sip and went for one of the conventional sodas instead. This place is baffling for a few reasons: 1. Our order cost almost $20 for such low quality food and 2. This place actually seems popular. In summary, the service was good; the food was not.

“Yum Yum”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

First time here, jumped off the I-390 looking for something now Chain Food related. Loved the place, a blast from the past. Steak sandwich combo was very good. Different, had a slice of ham on it, but it worked. The root beer itself could get you hooked for life.
