Nice folks and a good place to go for lunch. I work nearby so this is a convienant stop for me. I recommend this place for anybody that needs to get something to eat and get back to work I would not say it's is high class but it's OK

Tomboys quickly serves a limited menu which is all good, and well priced with great service. Their sister Tomboy's diner in Manhattan Beach is also great. It's hard to beat their value, quick service, and great salads and sandwiches.

Chili melts in your mouth! The cheeseburgers are outstanding and their breakfast is a great way to start your day.

This place was right across the street from where we were staying at the Hilton Garden Inn. We walked across The street and shared a club. It was good and they make it to order, good stuff!

Tomboys has been around forever. They are (or were) owned by a local family. Great burgers (I don't eat them but my family does) wish they had turkey burgers. The fries are really good.

Well, It is a fast food, but it is a very good place to just drive up or find a good place to sit down, but if your in an hurry..it is best to go to the drive-thru and pick up some fries and order their PASTRAMI...while it is still half time...so what ever you order keep smiling!
