This is an original and must stop when LA. The burgers are good and inexpensive. It is a great place to people watch especially after midnight.

I have been going to Tommy's since I was a kid. I live out of the area now, but this is one of two places I'm sure to visit when I'm in town. Hot dogs and hamburgers are the best, but you just have to have chili on them, including pickles and onions and mustard. That's what I get, and it's so delicious! Don't forget the chili fries, too. Obviously, the food isn't fat free, and it tastes like it -- WONDERFUL. Tommy's is not in the best of neighborhoods, so I would recommend going during the day, rather than the evening. Do try Tommy's, as it's a million percent better than the usual fast food

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.
