Comprehensive selection of tequilas, outranked only recently by newcomers Tacolicious.
Skip the food, go for the margaritas. You can get a serious education in tequila here.
The owner called me fat. When I was leaving the restaurant the owner called me el gordito. He may have thought that I dont understand spanish but I do. This is rude and unacceptable. Let him call his own family fat not the customers.
The best neighborhood hang out!. I became a member of the tequila tasting club about a year ago. I have never gone to Tommy's and not had an absolute BLAST! Julio and Eric man the bar and make you feel like a part of the family. These guys are just hanging out, serving great tequila to adoring regulars. Make it there at least monthly if you can.
Outstanding tequilas and a festive atmosphere distinguish this longstanding Mexican restaurant..
At night, boisterous 20- and 30-somethings fill the red vinyl booths and a small bar gets crowded quickly. With fresh ingredients and the best selection of tequila this side of the Rio Grande, Tommy's makes a mean margarita. The vast Mexican menu includes combination platters as well as Yucatecan specialties like poc chuc (broiled pork served in roasted tomato sauce).
Regular Diner at Tommy's.
I have to disagree with the overly negative review previously posted.... Tommy's is in my "hood" and my wife and I regularly take out of town guests to Tommy's.
The margaritas are great , food is excellent and the portions are massive. Very reasonably priced, to boot.
Parking's tough, but, hey, this is San Francisco, right?
There's a lot nearby where you can park for $10.00.
fresh limalicious. I love their chimichangas....accompanied by a pitcher of margaritas and a couple good pals. It's fun, noisy, and tasty! The alphabet soup was kind of strange, but the chips and salsa, tequila, and guac more than made up for it.
Tommy's. I have to say, going to Tommy's Mexican Restaurant on Geary was one of the best times I have ever had at a restaurant. Julio Bermejo was at the bar and gave us a total run down on 100% Agave Tequila's. He was extremely articulate and hilarious. I recommend this place to everyone going to San Francisco. By the way, I ordered a shrimp dish that was out of this world!
Hay Caramba!. Open since 1965, I finally got to try out this institution. Thursday night was jammed, took about 20min to get a table. We started off with a couple of pitchers of margaritas, very smooth and delicious. This place has a huge selection of tequilas, you can't go wrong. Moved on to a small salad covered in a spicy tomato vinagrette and then my prawns ojo, grilled with onions and a side of blackbeans. Food was fresh and tasty, lighter than most other Mexican I've tried, portions average. Dessert was a luscious flan. Overall, a good experience but due to it's popularity, hard to get a table and difficult to have a chat.
Margaritas. For a good, STRONG, margarita- you have to go to Tommy's. They also have the largest selections of Tequila I've ever seen- infact they even advertise it. The food is great! If you've seen that movie- Once Upon a Time in Mexico- remember the "pibil" that Depp's character always ordered? Well, the pollo version is served up here and it's magnifico.
Best Margaritas. If you are in San Francisco for business or just visiting, you HAVE to make a trip to Tommy's. The Best margaritas in the world, and I've had quite a few margaritas all over the world.
Do Not Go. I loved this place five years ago when I moved out of SF. Now that I am back, I hate it. They significantly increased the cost of the margaritas, there is no room, the food is below average, and I saw the waitress charge an extra guacamole on a bill after the people had seen the bill and given her their credit card. Go to Tia Margarita several blocks away. Great food, great bar with space, and the margaritas are just as good.
