Beef brisket with BBQ sauce 👍🏻 we highly recommend this. There is a queue system in this quirky restaurant (we didn't need to queue) which tells me it gets busy at times. Staff were helpful for us first timers. Essentially, choose you meet which they...More

Food was delicious. Whatever you buy GET the BBQ sauce. Special ingredient must be illegal cos that shiz is next level. Great grungy atmosphere here.

How do I know they serve the World's Best Turkey Leg? I don't, but I know they've been serving them for over 50 years! I enjoyed my first one in 1964 and my latest one in July 2017, so I'm clearly somewhat biased. Unfortunately, the...More

Thank you for your review. The Turkey Legs are available when they are in stock. We currently run a $5 turkey leg special on Tuesday. We make them fresh every day, but we tend to run out fast because they are popular. We use the...More

Service reminded me of school lunches; queue and get your tray of whatever you're having. Serving is superefficient, a little confusing if it's your first time there. Once you have your food, there are more quiet places in the back if you find the main...More

Heard about Tommy's from TA and Pinterest and decided we had to go. It's about a 15 minute walk from Union Station and only slightly dodgy. Food is counter style ordering and FAST. I had my first pastrami sandwich with Swiss and the meat melted...More

My husband and I had lunch here today. He had a pastrami sandwich which he shared with me because the roast beef sandwich I had was so tough I could not eat it. It was a great disappointment

We thought it would be same as Lefty's. But unfortunately it was not. The good was ok. Hope they will do better.

Somebody had told us to go to Tommy's Joynt while we were in San Francisco for their brisket sandwich and I'm glad we did! The meat was cut right in front of us and the BBQ dipping sauce was to die for. The side dishes...More

This is basically a hofbrau and it has been around longer than Santa and the food is pretty solid and a taste of the old city.
