We enjoyed home cooked meals at Tommy's. At our table we had the roast bef plate, the philly cheese-steak sandwich, and a breaded pork tenderloin. All portions are generous, we could have shared a meal. The food tasted like it is prepared in house which is a wonderful change from most restaurants. We finished off the meal with homemade strawberry-rhubarb... More

This diner is busy! I always see lots of people there, but the line goes quick and the staff are nice. Food is delicious and though you think of old, cracked or out of date with 24 hour diners....this is not the case with this one! Highly recommend when you're in town for the State Fair/horse races/concerts.

Good meals no matter what time of the day. Also have excellent carry out chicken! We enjoy going even if just for a cup of coffee.

We took the family (seven of us) to Tommy's for a late dinner on New Year's Day 2017. The menu has many great choices (including breakfast and children's menu). Service was great and very accommodating. We will be back.

Great price! Delicious food! Yes, the bathroom was a bit rough but it wouldn't keep from coming back by any means. I'm going for the food, not the bathroom.

This place reminds me of the diners one would have seen in the 1950-1970 era. The menu is diverse, and the service very friendly. The food is a good value and was cooked to perfection. A quiet atmosphere with the throwback feel. I have been back 4 times and never disappointed. This place serves breakfast all day.

The food was actually pretty decent. But flies everywhere driving me and my kids crazy. The smell in restaurant was terrible. Had to take my toddlers to the bathroom and they were BAD. So dirty. Would never go back.

When I visit small cities my concern is always no open restaurant after midnight. There is no problem in Grand Island, NE, They have Tommy's. Breakfast and lunch menu is very good.
