“The best dogs are bad dogs!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

LOVED Tommy's dogs! They come in 2 sizes: bad dogs (all Angus beef and large) or leaner wieners (regular hot dogs). With many different topping selections, it was hard to choose but we found the reuben dog and the Jersey slaw dog to be excellent. You may be standing in line awhile, but it's worth it!

“Lunch at the beach!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

I finally checked one off my bucket list! Stood in line behind the "yellow ropes" and was entertained by the owner with his wit and funny personality! The "bad dogs" were delicious! Once you learn the lingo, and order your dogs you are served with a smile! Will be back again before the end of the season!

“Great Dogs!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

The absolute best part of Tommy's is Tommy - at least that's who I thought was wearing the hot dog chapeau! He was delightful and made the end of the long line a marvelous experience. I had a Bad Dog with brown and kraut. It was fantastic! I also had the mac and cheese; it was good. My wife was disappointed that the mashed potatoes were instant. The "cups" don't seem to match the quality of the dogs. The menu has plenty of hot dog creations; if one of them doesn't suit, make up your own. The orange cream slushy is great! I would stand in Tommy's line again.

“Great place to stop for a quick bite”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Heard about this place through trip advisor and decided to stop. I wasn't disappointed. They had every type of hot dog topping imaginable and then some. It doesn't hurt that the hot-dog-hat-wearing owner (Tommy?) was friendly, quirky and entertaining. Good food-decent prices. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area!
