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.
