The food is awesome here, I love the bread and the sandwiches are amazing. The staff is so friendly, Jenna and Justine are wonderful girls. This place is lucky to have them. I drive miles just for the sub's. A must place to stop for great food.

Just about everything at Tommy's is good. Recommend the grilled chicken salad, french fries, hot dogs, ham sandwich, panini sandwiches, burgers, chili... Service is friendly. What I don't like is that they always run out of everything, so by the end of the day, you have extremely limited choices. Poor planning, but the food is great.

Fantastic subs. The service stinks. Makes for a very quick review. As always, we were ignored after ordering, then had to chase the server down to get the bill. The place is run down, and dirty. My nephew dropped something on the floor, and when he got up from getting it, he was filthy.

Good food and prices. Great service. Family owned. Staff exceptional. My mom is disabled and they take such good care of her. They go out of their way to help and she loves the food. They take time for her and it keeps her going. Please patronize this restaurant.
