I remember my first Tommy's burger as clearly as my first kiss (which thankfully, did not occur on the same day). I was 11, and my grandmother was at Good Samaritan Hospital. Out of frustration with the cafeteria - or maybe just to occupy my sister and me - my dad dragged us to the famous little stand on Beverly and ordered us up the messiest burgers I'd ever seen: laden with chili, onion, mustard and a big slice of beefsteak tomato. These were all foods and condiments I wasn't especially crazy about - but somehow, in that burger - they worked. Years later, Tommy's expanded to a chain, all with that messy combination of goodness. There have been imitators - but nothing compares with the original.

I eat here A LOT.
Put it this way...we go to Tommy's after every USC victory.
There's nothing better than a Tommy's burger after a game, spending time with our fellow Trojan Family. There's usually a pretty long line, but it's so worth it. It's under 5 bucks for a burger, fries, and a drink. Don't bother to get chili fries because you can always dip them in the chili from your burger.
Feeling drunk? Tommy's will help you sober up!
I once came here with a friend who had a stomach ache, and after Tommy's, she felt better! True story
The bottom line is, Tommy's is a Los Angeles staple. Forget pink's, Tommy's has the best chili in LA.
without trying the Original Tommy
Experience. The double cheeseburger or tamale covered in
chili and beefsteak tomatoes and
onions are messy and irresistable.
A small hamburger stand with a
constant line day and night. Stand-
up eating room only. Get lots of
napkins and enjoy! L.A landmark.

I think fasthorse is just on meds. Tommys is the best. It has been for years! I love everything on their menu. Hot dogs, hamburgers, chili-fritos, chili-fires. I cant belive fasthorse gave such a bad review. Obviously her and her husband arent used to eating good quality food if she is used to pouring hormels all over her burgers. Sounds like she should have paid attention in home economics. Tommys is not just a burger joint it is a landmark. Millions of other people have been satisfied and in love with their burgers for years. I would recommend their breakfast sandwich! it is only served until 11am. but it is to die for. IT is only like $2 dollars and you get a delicious heartattack on an english bun prepared by the chatty spanish speaking crew!
