Tom's Burgers

Tom's Burgers is an unassuming little restaurant on the corner of Manolia Avenue and Jones Avenue. It is very small, but was busy during the lunch hour. With only a few tables inside and two tables outside it can get packed in a hurry.

The menu is rather small and straight forward but it seems like they know what they do well and stick to it.

The Colossal Burger ($3.49) is a 1/4 lb. burger topped with pastrami. It comes with the usual suspets of lettuce, tomator, onions, pickles and thousand island dressing. The burger had a lot of flavor, while the pastrami was lean but had a few morsels of fat to give added flavor. The combination of flavors was rather good although the flavor of the pastrami was not very prominent as they don't give you a lot of pastrami atop the burger.

This is not a bad little burger joint and a relatively good value for the money. If they put more pastrami on their Colossal Burger it would be more reason to come back. Some of the things on their menu might be worth exploring a little more though.
