Sometimes fast food manages to hit the spot that no other food truly can, no matter how hard you try. So, if you have a cheat day coming up and want to plan something special to indulge in then head over to Tom Tom’s, the neighborhood’s own fast food joint that sells a variety of American Style fast food with plenty of sides and great service.

Tom the owner is somewhat of a local celebrity so if you spot him, make sure to take a picture with him to remember your trip!

Their hotdogs, burgers, and sandwiches all have a cult following that makes people keep coming back for more. Everything is made fresh, so you’ll never be sold any pre-made food which is says a lot about the establishment.

In particular their Reuben sandwich is something that we recommend because many locals regard it as their favorite.
