Tommy's Burgers Lake Forest

24310 Swartz Drive
Lake Forest, CA 92630

Good news! The Tommy's Burgers in Lake Forest is now open! No longer will us "South Countians" have to drive up to Fountain Valley to get a Tommy's burger. I headed over to the new location last Friday for lunch. It was packed! Even though it was crowded, the line still moved very quickly. They also prepared the food in a flash! There were tons of people there, but I think I still got out of the restaurant with my food in less than 5 minutes.

For those of you not familiar with Tommy's, most of their food items, including their burgers, hot dogs, tamales and even breakfast sandwiches all automatically come with Tommy's famous chili, mustard, pickles, tomatoes and onions. You can ask them to leave any of these items off if you prefer.

I ordered a cheeseburger and chili cheese fries ($5.05 together), a chili tamale ($2.90), and a chocolate shake ($2.00). I ordered my items without tomato. They were all fantastic. I only wish I had a bigger stomach so I could have actually eaten all the food. I know I ordered too much, but I couldn't help it. I was excited!


(Tamale....yes, there's a shredded beef tamale under there)

I agree. I was looking over these pictures before I posted them and thought "These don't look very appetizing." Tommy's sure does taste better than it looks!

Tommy's is something you need to eat at 12 AM so you can go to sleep and not worry about the upcoming indecencies that your stomach will create. :)
