The old retro atmosphere and awesome wait staff made this place worth going to as much as the good food. We went for a Sunday breakfast and the place was packed full with a line waiting. The portions were large and I have heard the lunches are just as good as the breakfasts. It was obvious that they had regulars... More

First time here on a Sunday morning. About a 10 minute wait. Good breakfast prices and lots of Great Wall photos. Strange parking lot shared with an auto repair shop. Not a great neighborhood either. But inside is very nostalgic and who can screw up breakfast? Worth the drive.

I can't say that anything about Tommy's is "AMAZING!" but it everything you want out of a diner. The servers are fun and friendly, the food is tasty, and the prices are reasonable. I don't know that I would go out of my way to have it, but if I'm in the area again, I will grab some pancakes and... More

Stopped on our way to COSI. Staff were exceptionally friendly and the food came out within minutes despite the place being packed. Food was delicious and prices were reasonable. Would recommend and would return.

Was working out of town and the locals brought me there for lunch. Many (6-8) daily specials all good. Had beef stroganoff that was excellent. Any salad is good, and is enough for two. Friendly old owner that's been there a long time. Old Coke machines and 60's tables, chairs with red sparkly vinyl.

An old fashioned diner that has been in it's present location for years. Great breakfast food and service. If you don't see what meal combination on the menu, just ask. They are very accommodating. Check the "today specials" board on the rear wall before you order!

I brought my Mom, Dad, and sister here for their first Tommy's experience and they loved it. My Dad even commented on how great the food and atmosphere are, which is quite an accomplishment. I love the omelets here and the sausage gravy is especially tasty. The restaurant is always full when I am here and there seem to be... More

I stopped in for breakfast ... Small cute diner. I had their version of a barnyard buster in a bowl. Very bland sausage gravy. Great service though. It seemed to be a lot of regulars, construction guys and a much older generation. It's not a place I'd rush back to anytime soon. I think this place would be good for... More

The wait time was very minimal, great atmosphere with lots of nostalgia. The pictures on the wall and the memorabilia spend many years. Excellent service, friendly staff
