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."
"Tom's has no indoor seating, but there are nice picnic tables way around the back."
"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."
