Tommy's Burgers is a California institution... All of their burgers come topped with this thick, oily chili...Its oily, but absolutely delicious. Be sure to try the chili cheese fries!!

I have been coming here for years, albeit not that often, maybe once or twice a month. I like their chili burgers, and yet would not want to make a steady diet of them. The fries are good, not special good, and sometimes I have...More

We stopped here from San Francisco to San Diego. Worth the drive. For $2.15 you get a hamburger with chili, onions, pickles, and the full condiments. Less than $2.00 for chile fries. I was afraid this place wouldn't be around 35 years later but it...More

Tommy Burger is the type of place that I want to be at 1am when I am smashed and need to lay down a serious layer of grease. Awesome French Fries, great burgers, and mysterious brown chile that is rooted deeply in beans and meat...More

There's a reason Tommy's has been a staple of Southern California for the last 65 years! Great, consistent, delicious food, and prompt service. Great chili burgers, chili cheese fries, and quick service. We did wish they had on-premises restrooms, but were thankful that they pointed...More

Only the second time that I've visited a Tommy's; won't be the last. Their Chili Cheese Dog was delicious - makes Der Wienerschnitzel look sad by comparison.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
