Tried it for a late dinner the other night while next door having some drinks at the Beer Market. They advertise free delivery there since no food is sold at the Beer Market. Well I picked the one night they wouldn't bring it over because they claimed to be short handed. Ok fine So I went and got it and... More

Stopped by for a burger on the way home. Menu is complicated, I mean, I just wanted a burger, not a special creation. Ended up ordering a blue burger(?) but minus the avocado, garlic mayo and cream cheese. What was left was not impressive. Menu said it came with homemade potato chips. What I got was three(!) chips on top... More

First time experience at Tom & Eddie's! It's a casual place with a unique menu of burgers & sandwiches. I enjoyed the cool vibe; ordered seared chicken sandwich. My wife ordered the Caesar salad, and my sister order the tuna burger. After taking a bite of my sisters tuna burger I wished that I had ordered that instead! With a... More

OK, I like the place. The "South of the Border" burger was good, but it is unquestionably expensive. And for the price, I'd only say that they're average. There's a friendly little bar near my home in WI that has a bigger and tastier steak sandwich in the same price range. On a positive note, the staff was friendly and... More

T and E was founded by two former McDonald's executives - but there the similarity abruptly ends. These guys know burgers and they took their experience to new levels, producing made to order fresh beef burgers with many varieties beyond basic. One bite of the swiss and baby mushroom burger did it for me - YUM

Ever kind of burger I could want but a Juicy Lucy and at the desired temperature. On Monday, the half pounder is priced as a quarter pounder. Haystack onions complete the image. Just tell them how you want it and enjoy. Beer, wine, and infinite soda choices complete the flavor spectrum.

You are able to dine here and still eat healthy. Unique burger options available. Waited a while when I dined in but they were quick with my to-go order.

I was very impressed by this place. Not a whole lot for vegetarians, but all you really need is the edamame burger. I was going to order the fried onion straws but the gentleman taking my order let me know that they are deep fried in beef fat. I really appreciated the knowledge and the fact that he shared that...

I was looking for a store along a certain route but I was going about this along the wrong lane.

Eat here quite often. Very swift, friendly service. Can make the meals your way (build your own). Sweet potato fries are fantastic. Use the frequent diner card as well!
