Tommy's is a surprisingly good restaurant located "out in the country" in Jackson / Millstone. It's right by Six Flags Great Adventure but that doesn't seem to effect the crowd there as much as you might guess. I have to admit I'm a "regular" there and when we come in the bartender knows us by name.
That being said, the food here is top notch. The Ribs, the Burgers, the Nachos, the Chicken Parm, everything I have ever had here has been a-one. There are live bands on some Saturday nights and some are quite good. There is a great Computer Juke Box that I drop 5 bucks in every time I go so I can listen to the Bodeans, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, Chili Peppers, etc.. Kareoke night is on Friday night and to be honest sometimes drives us out as the absolute worst singers in the world seem to be drawn there.
The decor is real cool, it's like a big log cabin and that rustic yet polished look carries throughout the place. The bar is separated from the dining room, but I'm always in the bar anyway. There are several TVs for watching sports or something else if you prefer, just ask and they'll change it for you. The owner, Tommy, is a good guy and always greets us warmly when we arrive. I'd be remiss and lying if I didn't tell you that one of the main reasons we go here, besides the fact they have great food, a nice atmosphere, and the place is almost exactly equidistant between my house and my late buddy Chap's house, is the Barkeep, Tracy. She is real pretty and dresses just right each and every night. She is friendly and great to talk to, and she tries to chat with us even when she's really busy. If you see her you will know what I mean. But unfortunately she is "taken" and somebody, I won't say who is a very lucky man. All in all a great place and we always have a good time here.
Some nights it was just meant for you to end up alone. So the other night I went to my local hangout, Tommy's.
I had a few Corona Lights, (gorgeous Tracy bought me a round) and got a peperoni bar pie for dinner. The pizza is like half Mexican and half Italian, I forget what Tracy called it, something like Fajita Pizza. It was delicious but nearly impossible to eat without a knife and fork. Extremely thin crust, maybe the thinnest I've ever had. The weight of the ample cheese and peperoni were too much for it to bear, so I used my utensils instead, probably a first for me with pizza. I had a shot of Patron Silver and a shot of 1800 Tequila, and presto, my blues are gone!
The new Juke Box is really cool, I put in my usual $5 and instead of getting to play 6 songs, like on the old one, I got like 12! I was the DJ for most of my time there. Played a bunch of Chili Peppers, Bruce, Roger Clyne, Foo Fighters, BoDeans, Marley, and Bob Seger too.
Of course the highlight of any visit to Tommy's is my favorite barkeep in this world or any, the Fabulous (with a capitol F) Tracy! Good conversation, and dazzling beauty are a hard combination to beat!
