Original Tommy’s Hamburger

Aloha Everyone,

Today’s lunch took us back to memory lane.

Original Tommy’s Hamburgers was established in 1946 by Thomas James “Tommy” Koulax in Southern California. It is still a privately held restaurant chain known for its chili burgers.

As college students with a limited budget, J.J. and I, along with our friends, frequented Tommy’s in Los Angeles, known then and now for quality food at reasonable prices.

Today there are a total of 33 restaurants all in California except for 3 in Las Vegas, Nevada. One of them is located in the shopping mall just across the street from KOA Las Vegas.

While J.J. feasted on Tommy’s Original Hamburger and fries, I asked for a veggie wrap with no chili sauce. For our lunch, we paid $13.00 plus tip. Still very reasonable for 2018.

Aloha -- Cathi
