They do CASH ONLY!!! If you're looking for a good breakfast place, this place is golden. Breakfast and lunch are served here at really anytime it seems like. They also have a very large variety menu...even a few things i have never heard of. Breakfast and lunch are served all day (they are only open for limited hours). Restaurant has... More

Fast service, friendly wait staff, quick table clearing, clean and friendly. Wide variety of breakfast standard choices and daily specials, too. We have only been for breakfast, have heard lunch is good, too.

Good southern food, basic menu, clean, and good service. Prepare to wait in line 15-20 minutes but worth the wait. Friendly people and you'll meet the locals!

I've been going here for years, even under the management before the owners now. I have yet to have a bad experience and the wait staff is attentive. Try the Liver and onions, you will never bee the same; it's that goooooooood.

There is always a line of customers in the morning, however it moves pretty well while your mouth waters from the wonderful smells wafting outside. Friendly, homey atmosphere and attentive waitstaff makes you quite comfortable immediately. Once you peruse the extensive menue, the choices are difficult. Their country dishes are wonderful and plentyful. The table groans with all the sides... More

Get there upon opening or you will be waiting in line. Never have an issue doing such because I know my food will be fresh and cooked to perfection. Never a bad experience..If you want superior home cooking, whether breakfast/lunch/dinner...Tommy's is the place!

We have lived in the area for most of our lives, have heard about Tommy's Restaurant and finally ventured out to try this place for breakfast. We have seen the line of people standing outside before and driven off. We definitely should have waited! The menu is extensive to say the least. You name it and they have it. Prices... More

Nothing spectacular about the decor or the menu but the food is hot, plentiful and served fast. You have a bottomless coffee cup and the waitresses and waiters are extra friendly. The fish and eggs is off the chart good. The combination special breakfast is a cheap goodie when you feel like you want a lot.

I have frequented Tommy's often over the years, especially for breakfasts which it is noted for, but occasionally also for lunch. Recently, having spent my youth in New England , I tried their "fresh fried clams" having been told they truly were fresh. I was not disappointed. These were NOT the portion control, frozen, clam 'strips' you get everywhere else.... More

Tommy's is like stepping down stairs into the family dining area and devouring food that feeds the soul. I am originally from Alabama, and I love the way Alabama folks cook their grits, well, Someone at Tommy prepares those grits the same way. Hospitality is everything. I just wished they carried Italian Creamer for the coffee..
