The Italian hot dogs were delicious!! I ate it so fast....lol. They don't have a big variety of food. My cousin wanted a cheeseburger which they did not have. So she ordered the chicken sandwich. She said it was ok. I told her they only specialize in hot dogs....lol

Haven't been in years. Will return before I leave town. Big tasty sausage sandwich. Worth every penny. Had to wait and worth it. Hotdogs are excellent and worth 2 bucks. Potatoes in a cup are the best.

In town for a high basketball game. Alkyds turn to trip advisor for great food suggestions! This was a winner. Good hot dogs. Great sausage sandwich on even more awesome bread. Love the potatoes! Santa was even there to greet us!

When I was in grammar school I used to go to Tommy's for lunch with my girlfriend every Friday. The Pizza is amazing and so is the service. They always deliver and you feel at home.

This is by far the BEST Italian Sausage Sandwich (or Hot Dog) you will get in New Jersey. I've been going here since I was 7 years old and they are still the same. I now live in PA but visit Elizabeth regularly and love coming here. You will not be disappointed.
