Since 1983, the folks at Tommy's Hamburger Grill & Patio have been cooking up their signature burgers, sandwiches, and hearty sides from family recipes passed down through the generations. They smother Wholey Moley burgers in guacamole and cheddar and top wheat bread with chicken salad, then pile on sides such as fries, tots, and fried okra—though diners can also upgrade to "frog fries," hand-cut fries buried beneath cheddar cheese, grilled onions, and jalapeños. The menu accommodates eaters of all stripes with veggie, turkey, and slim burgers, with the latter cheerfully labeled “for wimps.” The from-scratch crispy catfish, meanwhile, comes in its own basket—as commonly found in the wild—and can be paired up with shrimp. To wash it all down, diners can order wine and beer or stick with sweet tea and cola.
