***** (5 stars)
There’s nothing quite like an authentic Tommy burger. There are imitators all over town, but none of them get it quite right.
There’s something about the flavor of the strange orange glop they call chili that can’t be duplicated. Frankly the stuff might be terrible by itself, but with the slab of tomato, diced onion, and handful of dill pickle slices, it all seems to go together.
Oh yeah, and there must be meat in there somewhere, although who knows what it tastes like.
The fries deserve a shout out, too. They’re not thick or thin, but just fat enough to have a nice crust and soft inside.
Oh, and don’t get that orange stuff on your hands. It never comes off.
