Last time I wrote about Original Tommy’s, I compared it somewhat to “Original Ray’s” pizza in NYC. Lots of folks put “Ray’s” in the name of their pizzerias in NY, lots of folks put “Tommy’s” or some variation of it, in the name of their burger joints in SoCal. There is the “original” Original; just plain Tommy’s; Tom’s Thom’s: Thoma’s”, and on. Accept no substitute, only the “original” Original Tommy’s will do. You know it’s them if they have a pic of their original stand in the logo!
They’re everywhere, it seems. (see location map). Lucky for me, cause I was a might hungry on the way to lunch, and a small order of Original Tommy’s chili fries is just what the doctor ordered. (Actually, my doctor would be horrified, but my lawyer – that’s a different story!)
Now in its seventh decade, Original Tommy’s is the go-to place for burgers, dogs, and fries, smothered in their delicious, original recipe of chili!
