A full menu (including breakfast anytime!) satisfied everyone in our party of eight! We were too full for dessert so took a homemade pie home for later. Would love to come back and sit at the retro counter.

This diner is busy! I always see lots of people there, but the line goes quick and the staff are nice. Food is delicious and though you think of old, cracked or out of date with 24 hour diners....this is not the case with this one! Highly recommend when you're in town for the State Fair/horse races/concerts.

Good meals no matter what time of the day. Also have excellent carry out chicken! We enjoy going even if just for a cup of coffee.

We took the family (seven of us) to Tommy's for a late dinner on New Year's Day 2017. The menu has many great choices (including breakfast and children's menu). Service was great and very accommodating. We will be back.

Thank Bruce W
