Yes, they had been cash only until recently, and it speeds things up a bit now that credit cards are accepted. I usually get a BocaBurger, with the goop sauce on the side --- makes the burger a lot less messy. The banana shake is great. Get yourself some tater tots, too, and you're all set!

I haven't ate there for a couple of years and I'm not really sure why other that I have been trying to clean up my act. That being said it's still not an excuse to stay away from an honestly good burger. Treat yourself to a good old Goo Sauce burger once and a while. Great fries and shakes also.... More

I have been going to BIg Toms for over 50 years. there used to be several locations now down to just one. If you are passing by Olympia it is a must stop. The goop is to die for on everything. The staff is great

Went here for lunch. Staff came out to car and was very friendly. Took or orders and said they would take them to us at the outdoor seating area. The seating area has an ice cream shop there where we ordered a banana split (yum!). The tables had dinosaurs on them and there were buckets of Dino toys for my... More

We went to have a 'goop' burger and fries, and they didn't disappoint. They're always prompt with taking your order and receiving it also in a timely manner.

Visiting daughter and grandkids in Olympia on a cool but sunny March afternoon. Weather nice enough to sit outside to eat so we stopped for lunch at Big Tom's. Great fresh fast food. I had chicken sandwich. Wife had big burger. Both with fries. All great. Hot and fresh. Decent coffee. Kids splayed for over an hour in Tardis and... More

Lets face it, Big Tom's is a local tradition and they earned it! The special sauce, the scrumptious burgers, it's as good as it gets!

Finally gave this place a try after hearing so much about it. Put of trying because it is cash only but found out they have a very convient ATM on the site. I'm a big fan of Han's and Van's and now I'm a Big Tom fan too! Goop is not what you think when you hear fry sauce... Think... More
