Sitting at 2570 Beverly Boulevard this little hut russles up some amazing old fasioned burgers, If like me you have a brittish size of apitite a burger and coke will be enough. Now there are burgers and there are sloppy burgers These are real sloppy you will nead the napkins/paper towels! A fine burger topped with onion tomato cheese and a good dolup of chilli.

Seating? well there wasent any but there is a bar type affare set up around the perimiter/parking lot??(dont think you can park here).

google the address and you will see what I mean in street view.

If you are looking for the latest gourmet style burger in trendy surroundings then this is not the place for you. This place serves up good wholesome old fashioned fair at a cheap price.

go grab some history

Good quality chili burgers prepared and served with passion. Looking forward to coming back to this place next time I'm in town. Very clean restaurant. Friendly service. Tasteful chili on a juicy burger along with fresh fries.

For a buck or two more than a Big Mac, upgrade to a Tommy's Original Burger. Wow. No comparison. Loved the chili sauce and fresh lettuce and tomato.

Went to Tommy's, although not the original location. Burgers are still great, the chili will smell for many hours afterwards. Brought back great memories. Thanks for a great burger.

Mayo? Don't worry. You won't need it.
I have been going to Tommy's World Famous for over thirty years now, and it is still better than most burgers in fast food land. Don't forget a side of chili-cheese fries (OMG-BLISS!).
Just ask for a double-double-extra-extra, and you'll get a chili cheese burger with extra chili, extra beef patty and extra cheese with a fresh slice of tomato and onion. The chili compliments this burger like halos and wings compliment heaven.
The burgers can be a little high in the calorie and fat department, but keep in mind that if you want decadence in a burger Tommy's is the place to go.
During my college days, I wouldn't hesitate to drive sixty miles out of my way at 2 o'clock in the morning for a study break to devour a Tommy's burger and chili-cheese fries.
If I were a billionaire jet-setter today, I wouldn't hesitate to get on a private jet to fly to L.A. for a 2 a.m. burger at Tommy's - It's just harder to stay awake that late now.
If you're hungry and you're looking for an easy and inexpensive place to eat with really good food, go ahead and give it a try. Just don't cancel your gym membership.
