If you like really greasy chili burgers and don't mind being in the underbelly of the City of Angels this is the place.

I firmly believe that you have not experienced life until you have eaten at Tommy's.

Put it this way...we go to Tommy's after every USC victory.

There's nothing better than a Tommy's burger after a game, spending time with our fellow Trojan Family. There's usually a pretty long line, but it's so worth

I have been coming here since I was a teenager. I stop by at least once a month to help "last nite's" hangover or as a pit stop after a long nite out. I get the chiliburger with a huge side of peppers. not the healthiest meal but so

Regardless of the time of day, this place is great for a quick meal. I recommend it, but avoid times like noon and 2am when this place is jammed pack. Service is great and the burgers hit the spot, especially is you like chili burgers, which appears to be their specilaty. To top it off, prices are very reasonable.

Sorry, folks, but the emperor has no clothes! This is truly the nastiest-looking excuse for chili you will ever find. It looks like something you'd see on a baby's diaper, and doesn't taste much better. Vastly overrated.

This is the original Tommy's burger joint. I used to come here when you had to sit on the parking wall to finish your lunch. Our workplace made a trip every other month just to get our Tommy fix. Great burgers. Not like your run-of-the-mill burger. I have taken out of town guests for a burger. When I described the burger, they didn't seem very excited, but when they tasted it, they loved it! Looks real messy. The burgers are real messy, but well worth it! Sometimes it is difficult to find a parking place at this location. You must order fries with your burger for the complete treatment!

PROS: Yum!

I remember the first time I ate a Tommy's Original World Famous Hamburger, I could not eat the whole burger. It was so Big. I think they were using truck driver buns at that time. Through the years, this original location has expanded and the size of the burger is a little smaller. However, the service is just as great and fast. The burgers have not lost that original taste, oozing with chili, thick lean ground beef, firm tomato slices with onions and pickles. Several locations have opend through ot the county and years, but the Beverly Blvd location is the original.
