Visiting LA but grew up here and have been coming to Tommy's for 50+ years. Some changes to the Beverly Rampart location (restrooms!) but still the ambience of burgers on the grill, assembled to order with thick slice of tomato, onions, pickles and of course chili. It's just magical and addictive. Recommend a double chili cheese--skip the fries as this... More

When visiting Los Angeles you must try a Tommy's hamburger. It's messy but soooo good. It's definitely not a health food but it's great for after the bars close, after football or baseball games or just as a late night snack. It's open 24 hours 7 days a week. You can't say you didn't visit Tommy's when you return home... More

It is a cool experience just eating at the counters outside. There is not a inside part at all at the real original. It is a good sloppy burger. The fries are really plain though. If you got a few minutes to grab a burger, try it at least once but there are better burgers.

Recently, I took my 10 and 12 year old boys for their first Tommy burgers and they loved the food and the experience. The lines can be long, but the service is quick. There are no chairs or tables, so be prepared to stand while eating. The chili burger is very good with a nice blend of spices and a... More

We grew up by the one in Inglewood and was sad to see it turned into a McDonalds. So when we came back into town we came back to this one. Felt like coming home with the chili on every thing. So glad we came back to our roots!

Old and funky, be sure to get a double double, heavy on the chili. Sit on the curb across the street and eat....this place is classic LA, and is always good, any time of day or night.

I drove 3.5 hours for the worst fast-food dining experience of my life. The chili tastes horrible. I ordered the chili cheeseburger chili cheese frie and tamale.

The sandwich did not disappoint but more messier than I remembered. Most of the chili and cheese was left on the wrapper. I took my son who had never eaten one but I think this is it. So long, old friend.
