There are quite a few Tommy's around Southern California. I have visited most of them at some point in time. Recently, I stopped by to eat at the original on Beverly and Rampart, reminds me when I was in high school and we would stop by after a game. The memories....................

Happened to pass by the original location on Beverly today and just had to stop for old times sake. Used to eat here all the time during my college years. What else is open at 3 am? Food just as good as ever but with fewer flies around this time of year!

I've been a fan of Tommy's for 50 years, mainly at the original location on Beverly. When they started expanding, I tried several of the other locations. At first, they were fine, but in recent years I've found them to be of lower and very uneven quality. I was particularly disappointed most recently by the one at Burbank and Laurel... More

This was my 3rd time at Tommys. The burgers and fries are just the best but the fun is in the manner of eating them. Since 1946, you can just sidle up,place your order( there's usually a line) and enjoy your burger in the open air at a counter/stall type arrangement. Totally unique and truly american. Around $8 for burger,fries... More

Tommy's has been around for 70 years now and things haven't changed much. It's usually pretty crowded with a not too large parking lot, although they have a larger lot across the street. They still serve burgers and stuff from the "original" Tommy's stand at the corner of Beverly and Rampart, but also have another building on site with a... More

This place is a place you need to eat at, just for the fact that it has been there forever. Started out as a small building and now they have added another larger building and updated things somewhat. But the food is still the same as it was many years ago. Each burger has chili added, unless you request no... More

Visiting LA but grew up here and have been coming to Tommy's for 50+ years. Some changes to the Beverly Rampart location (restrooms!) but still the ambience of burgers on the grill, assembled to order with thick slice of tomato, onions, pickles and of course chili. It's just magical and addictive. Recommend a double chili cheese--skip the fries as this... More

When visiting Los Angeles you must try a Tommy's hamburger. It's messy but soooo good. It's definitely not a health food but it's great for after the bars close, after football or baseball games or just as a late night snack. It's open 24 hours 7 days a week. You can't say you didn't visit Tommy's when you return home... More
