I had a craving for ISLANDER (AHI TUNA) Wasabi Mayo, Fresh Avocado & topped with Fried Wontons on a Sesame Seed Roll. It's still the best sandwich in my opinion a little smaller but still great!

Catering order came in while we were there and we waited over 30 minutes to get our food or an explanation. Had less than 8 minutes to eat. Manager came over and offered us a free cookie for our troubles, some of the food was cold (fries) and it we got the short end of the stick because of the... More

We stopped for lunch and had a burger and a chicken sandwich and both were very good. Nice option instead of bigger chains. Seemed to appreciate our being there and again, the food was very good. Will stop again and do recommend this place.

Tried it for a late dinner the other night while next door having some drinks at the Beer Market. They advertise free delivery there since no food is sold at the Beer Market. Well I picked the one night they wouldn't bring it over because they claimed to be short handed. Ok fine So I went and got it and... More

Stopped by for a burger on the way home. Menu is complicated, I mean, I just wanted a burger, not a special creation. Ended up ordering a blue burger(?) but minus the avocado, garlic mayo and cream cheese. What was left was not impressive. Menu said it came with homemade potato chips. What I got was three(!) chips on top... More

First time experience at Tom & Eddie's! It's a casual place with a unique menu of burgers & sandwiches. I enjoyed the cool vibe; ordered seared chicken sandwich. My wife ordered the Caesar salad, and my sister order the tuna burger. After taking a bite of my sisters tuna burger I wished that I had ordered that instead! With a... More

OK, I like the place. The "South of the Border" burger was good, but it is unquestionably expensive. And for the price, I'd only say that they're average. There's a friendly little bar near my home in WI that has a bigger and tastier steak sandwich in the same price range. On a positive note, the staff was friendly and... More

T and E was founded by two former McDonald's executives - but there the similarity abruptly ends. These guys know burgers and they took their experience to new levels, producing made to order fresh beef burgers with many varieties beyond basic. One bite of the swiss and baby mushroom burger did it for me - YUM

Ever kind of burger I could want but a Juicy Lucy and at the desired temperature. On Monday, the half pounder is priced as a quarter pounder. Haystack onions complete the image. Just tell them how you want it and enjoy. Beer, wine, and infinite soda choices complete the flavor spectrum.

You are able to dine here and still eat healthy. Unique burger options available. Waited a while when I dined in but they were quick with my to-go order.
