Visiting family from Colorado we followed their recommendation to Tom's. I had the jalapeno burger and my husband had the double cheese. Both were delicious! We got the half order of sweet potato fries and they were enough for two. Best burgers in a very long time.

My wife and I visited Lompoc, CA, to have something to do on a Saturday and were referred to Tom's by a local merchant. The restaurant isn't particularly easy to find since it's on a bit of a side street but it was definitely worth the effort to find it. The restaurant has a nice, open layout and there was... More

We've tried all the burger places in Lompoc and this is our favorite. I took 1-star away only because it's the only burger place with servers. It's nice not to have to leave a tip, and not to wait for drink refills. Other than that-food is excellent! You get SO MANY FRIES! And the A - Z Burger Menu is... More

Nice café with lots of selections. For lunch I had mushroom burger with grilled onions, but with BBQ sauce instead of the regular sauce. The burger was juicy and tasty! We asked if my husband and I should have a half basket of fries - no a quarter basket is plenty - she was correct.

Best burgers in Lompoc ABSOLUTELY. plenty of options actually A-Z a burger for each letter. Affordable big portions and service with a smile. IF you are in Lompoc and are needing lunch go to Toms Burgers you will not be sorry. G and X most popular options. Basket of fries is big enough for a family, get a half order.

This place has been a favorite of mine for over 25 years, maybe closer to 30 years. People associate Tom's with hamburgers, but if you want a surprise go in and try their breakfasts. Great food at good prices.
