Let me start this off with very nice locals that were all very friendly. From there it is downhill. I travel and enjoy eating at a lot of greasy spoons, but this was the worst of that genre. My wife had the fish and chips special, which consisted of factory fish that was perhaps 70% batter. The fries were good.... More

There are many good restaurants in McMinnville... many of them are a bit too pretentious or fancy for my tastes. For breakfast, we tried Tommy's Restaurant after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor. Seriously: everything was great. The meat Lover's omelet had bacon, ham, sausage and cheese, and I added mushrooms. It was like a party in my mouth; all... More

How do I explain the decor, it's kinda like a local cafe/truck stop/funky little restaurant. But, great food! I hear their chicken fried steak is fabulous, but I'm not a fan so I had a cheeseburger and fries. Better than most places in McMinnville and the prices are unbeatable. I think they got everything right.

This used to be our favorite breakfast place in Mac until celiac disease became a part of our lives. Everything is cooked on the same grill so nothing can be certain to be gluten-free, if this is an issue for you. The bacon is the absolute best of anywhere in town, and the portions are very large. Always good for... More

A great place to eat, and the place is always busy. The food is very good and the staff are always ensuring coffee is topped off and meals are brought out hot.

Good food at reasonable prices! A nice restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. My mother and I ate lunch there and we also decided to go back and try out breakfast there. Both were very good and we plan to be going back when we can to try out other items and meals!

The restaurant only has limited hours (breakfast and lunch during the week). The food is great and worth the wait when there is a line. Tommy's is frequently very crowded when it is open so be prepared.

I've eaten here several times and took my wife for the first time today. I had my usual chicken fried steak which is always over the top. My wife enjoyed her meal as well. She already asked when we are going back so it must be a winner for her. The service staff was very attentive to our needs and... More
