I'm glad that I make my way to SoCal anywhere from one to three times a year so I can partake of one on my favorite foods at an Original Tommy's. If I'm driving it's pretty much a guarantee that I will stop in Santa Clarita either on the way down or heading back up. If I fly down I... More

Made another trip to SoCal and HAD to stop here. It's almost as if i NEED my Original Tommy's fix and this is the first one you can get to from NorCal. The blend of their chili in a double cheeseburger is heavenly. Would love it if they expanded to the East Bay and they certainly would pull in the... More

Walking into this Tommy's brings back memories of late night runs to the Original Tommy's on Beverly and Rampart decades ago. And there is nothing that brings back those memories than the distinctive smell of the chili. One can have the chili on their burger, on a hot dog, on fries, or just as a stand-alone dish; it is the... More

Since we moved from the Southern California area we have missed eating at Tommy's ... the ORIGINAL Tommy's! When we stay at the Best Western/Valencia Inn while visiting, we get our "Tommy's Burger Fix"!

I absolutely love the chili. I wish I could replicate the flavor. I've tried many times. It is super yummy!

Ridiculous that this "restaurant" is even in the top 10, or any top 10 for that matter. This is merely "fast food", and never more. Customer service is at best average, Quality is even LESS than Tommy's I've eaten at outside of Santa Clarita. I recommend eating here out of convenient proximity, as opposed to the Del Taco & Jimmy... More

i'm another person who was introduced to Original Tommy's in 1974 when i went to college in SoCal. the late night jaunts to Beverly and Rampart are still seared in my mind with Fast Eddie shouting insults to the customers and the sodas served in bottles with many of them ultimately shattered in the parking lot. as with many who...

Great place for a chili cheese burger. If you are looking for something else, then I recommend somewhere else. Although the chile cheese fries, and tamales aren't bad either.

Does Tommy's need a review??? If you grew up in SoCal, this place is a landmark and the food is disgustingly delicious. Some people say the food is different at each Tommy's, but I think it's just the ambience of the original versus all the others that makes folks seem like the food is different. Either way, you can't go... More

If you love greasy chili burgers and chili cheese fries, look no further... this is your place. Great place to chow down after a night of drinking. I even like their chili covered tamale.
