I visit Lompoc a few times a year to see family and Tom's is always a must on our list. My father-in-law introduced us to this place. He is an old fashioned country boy that loves the homemade sausage patties. My husband is also a fan of the country gravy. I believe they make everything from scratch and the portions... More

Lompoc has a couple of non chain burger places but Tom's is the original and the place my out of town friends want to visit. Tom's menu features a burger variation for each letter of the alphabet. My favorite is the "E" Burger with fries and onions rings combo.

I went to meet up with family at Tom's for a late night meal. Tom's motto is "Home of the Educated Hamburger". I drove by Tom's a few times because it is on a side street strip-mall. Inside is small but packed, which is always a good sign. The menu lists items for breakfast, lunch/dinner. One third of the menu... More

Visiting family from Colorado we followed their recommendation to Tom's. I had the jalapeno burger and my husband had the double cheese. Both were delicious! We got the half order of sweet potato fries and they were enough for two. Best burgers in a very long time.

My wife and I visited Lompoc, CA, to have something to do on a Saturday and were referred to Tom's by a local merchant. The restaurant isn't particularly easy to find since it's on a bit of a side street but it was definitely worth the effort to find it. The restaurant has a nice, open layout and there was... More

We've tried all the burger places in Lompoc and this is our favorite. I took 1-star away only because it's the only burger place with servers. It's nice not to have to leave a tip, and not to wait for drink refills. Other than that-food is excellent! You get SO MANY FRIES! And the A - Z Burger Menu is... More

Nice café with lots of selections. For lunch I had mushroom burger with grilled onions, but with BBQ sauce instead of the regular sauce. The burger was juicy and tasty! We asked if my husband and I should have a half basket of fries - no a quarter basket is plenty - she was correct.
