We were driving by on our way to DQ next door and stumbled upon Tommy's. We decided to go in here for a Malt versus drive thru DQ. The atmosphere is OK, feels a little closed in and dark with the paint color. We each got a malt that was very good and a basket of fries to share that came out hot and fresh. We would come back here again to try the burgers and have another malt!

I love the atmosphere here and the Malts!!! Great place for a date! Or just some family fun! They have the feel of the 1950's and the look too!

These malts are incredible. You can mix any of their flavors and my favorite is the chocolate/coffee malt...YUMMM!!!

They also have great burgers. I seem to usually get the one with portabella mushrooms on it. Service is great, price is great.

I hate to be the buzzkill because I love that a place like this opened in Savage. So here it goes anyway.

This spot has hosted a large number of now defunct restaurants. As I entered I could feel the ghost of Paradise Pizza. OK, not really. Actually the malt shop type vibe is nice for a small place. The sound of blenders is close by if you sit in the second row.

We did not try a malt/shake. Probably should have.

Appetizer Cheese Curds. D+. Very small little curds with too much breading. Nothing like the larger stuff you get at the fair.

Main entree: Burgers and fries. Both of our burgers were thin and a bit overcooked. They also did not have the flavor of places like Lions Tap or even Smashburger. The bun is the star. We tried the regular and Tommy's burger. C

Fries were very good. The regular fries were a step above many places (including Lions tap). Waffle fries had a seasoning with a nice kick. Sweet potato fries were a bit thin and oily. Still, the highlight. B

So all and all an average burger meal. We'll try it again with a shake to see if that helps. Just wish the burgers were thicker, juicier, and more flavorful.

Contradicting a previous comment. Skip the food and go for the malts. To the owners: The service we received was good, though with all the new employees it all seemed chaotic. I understand the malt machines are not the quietest things in the world but the noise is almost unbearable when your busy. Please find a way to deflect the sound away from the dining area. The quality of the food offered needs a looking at. I would gladly pay a little more for a better burger. The malts we had were great, but dont be afraid to add a little more flavoring. It's not a bad start. We will try again soon.
