Tom's

37 State Rd., Whately, MA - (413) 665-2931
Posted By Dominick DePaolo on 11/29/2011 12:41:00 PM
I was driving home to New Hampshire from a Thanksgiving holiday break in Connecticut, and I wanted something to eat that would be quick and good. I remembered stopping at Tom's on a motorcycle trip in the fall of 2010, so I sought it out again. I arrived to find that they had expanded and upgraded the entire facility.

I ordered the "Chicago Style Dog" specialty and a side of the homemade baked beans with a Dr. Pepper. Maisie, my dog, had a plain hot dog with nothing on top. Everything was excellent including the friendly service and the prices, which are very reasonable. I spent $10 and change on two hot dogs, a side of baked beans, and a small drink.

The newly expanded restaurant area is great and I'm sure it will help to increase Tom's four-season business draw. Also, there is plenty of space for parking and eating your food drive-in/tailgate style, which is especially convenient if you travel with your dog or other pets.

On this battered tray are four-star eats:  a long dog, fully dressed, and an order of superlative French fries.

Since the last time I visited (summer 2010) Tom's has expanded their restaurant to accomodate customers all year long.  I had the ''Chicago Dog'' and it was excellent!  My dog had a plain hot dog with nothing; she loved hers too.

Stopped in on my way home from Thanksgiving down in CT.  I parked next to the new signage announcing year-round service at Tom's.  My dog waited patiently in the van for her lunch.
