Tom's is as part of the neighborhood as the subway. Good for families!

An institution, no, not in the lunatic asylum euphemistic sense, but in that it's been in the neighborhood for forever (and yes that means long before Seinfeld use the exterior and the tourists began to arrive). It's a diner, to be judged as diner food. Generally good, but, yes, it varies. The service, in my experience, is fine if you give the staff a chance. They deal with a lot of tourists who know they'll never return and are notorious for not tipping. Some students (not all) are the same. Treat them with decency and respect (they have a rough job) and you'll probably have a good experience. If not, not. The eggs are good, as are the burgers and fries. Not gourmet, no, as some complain, but good. The prices are reasonable if you're accustomed to New York prices, and insane if you're not. It's a matter of perspective. Yes, the shakes are formidable. A good place, with good people.

I've been there lots of times. I worked nearby and it's a good place

As I ate my burger deluxe and looking at the Seinfeld and Vega memorabilia, it hit me that the a fast food chain's third pounder and fries are not that bad after all.

This place is overrated, you never feel welcome here, the food is really disapointing, i went many times, I'm sure even my dog wouldn' t eat the leftovers if i brought them home, and my dog is the kind of dog who eats anything. The service is poor, she is very agressive, she yells at customers and insult them for no reason except that we can't understand what she is saying. Don't go there.

Toms is so great. The food is so yummy for anytime of day or night. We usually go late at night, and it is still busy with a variety of people. The place is comfortable, the service is fast, and the portions are just right. A few of our favorite foods there are the chicken tenders with fries, the milkshakes, and the best is the cream of turkey soup! Just know that it's cash only. The counter is perfect for a morning bowl of cereal and a muffin. Great place to bring friends for a great meal, great conversation, and great service!

As stated in an earlier review, this compares directly to the chain diners of the west coast, and Toms wins on all counts. Better than average food, better than average prices, service people seemed a little strange, but hey half of NY people seem a little strange to me, hehe. The interior has quite a few Seinfeld posters, which I find to neither be a pro or con. In contrast to the west coast counterparts, this is one place you can actually get an egg salad sandwich....
