It has been years since I have been here but it is just as good as I remembered it to be. The burgers are terrific as are the fries and onion rings. I had forgotten how great their homemade root beer is too! Great local place, I highly recommend anyone in the area to give this place a try!

It's certainly not a place to go if you want health fare. My family has gone there a few times and we always get the cheeseburgers and fries. They give you a frosted mug to use when ordering root beer. Tom Wahl's also serves ice cream for those who somehow still have room after all the food. That place is... More

This place would normally get a 4 out of 5, but not this time. They have raised their prices again. Hubby and I went for lunch. He ordered his usual cheeseburger, fries, and root beer. I ordered my usual "plain" chicken breast, macaroni salad, and diet Pepsi. Hubby enjoyed his as usual, I on the other hand had one of... More

Always a GREAT burger! and love the fried Mushrooms & Onion Rings. They make their own Rootbeer and even serve it in a frosted mug if you wish. But I really do miss their fried Green Pepper rings. I wish they would make their own. Good entertainment in the warmer months.

Their root beer is the best! It is homemade! Their burgers are good but greasy. Try their hot sauce, good flavor and spice! You get a lot of fries with your order as well!

We live in Avon so getting our fix of T Wahl's is not a problem. My only complaint is sometimes they could cook their burgers a little longer. It's not that they are undercooked but to experience a true delicious burger it needs to be charred on the outside where it's crispy. So now when I order I say very... More

We visit this place often during the summer months. The quality of the food has diminished for the price. Today's lunch was poor at best. Hubby had 2 cheeseburgers, I had grilled chicken breast, macaroni salad, and we shared a small order of fries. The cheeseburgers were as dry as the macaroni salad. The salad had no eggs, no veggies,... More

Gooey, melty, tasty, greasy cheeseburger on a hard roll. If it clogs my arteries, I will die happy. Warning: if you order a milkshake, it's yummy and malty, but watch out...it's huge!

One of the best places for Fish Fry in this area! Great place to sit outside and in the summer they have live music. All the food I have ever ordered there has been very good.

we have been going to Tom Wahls for many years. Favorite on the menu is the haddock mini fish fry, available every day of the week. Perfect batter and awesome french fries and salad to go with.
