We had a late Saturday lunch at Tom's #22. The decor is surprisingly nice with very comfortable booths. My wife had the regular hamburger combo with fries and soft drink while I had the Taco Salad. Her burger was big, but nothing special. The side of fries was very generous. My taco salad with steak was just so-so. The taco... More

Have visited Tom's for many years now. Their breakfast menu is broad and the portions and value are great for a family of 5. I love their french toast deal - bacon is delicious. The waitresses are attentive as well. They have great weekday deals on lunch as well. Highly recommend.

I had a breakfast burrito which was nicely crisp on the outside but nothing to write home about on the inside. My husband had their special which was a ham and cheese omelet. The omelet was average. The home fries were... More

Had a burger here and truly not worth the time, money or energy. With so many places doing burgers great this place does burgers and fries so wrong. Soggy buns, underdone meat, tough frozen meat, soggy fries. No ketchup or salt included in to go orders.

Tom's has been here for a while, and I like the fries. Burgers aren't bad either. I've tried a lot of things on the menu and they all were above par. Nice people too.

Burger had bizarre texture and tasteless. Have never had this experience elsewhere. I couldn't eat it -and kept wondering what I was eating. Instead, stopped at a drive-thru chain which tasted gourmet after this.
