Original Tommy’s Burgers, commonly known as Tommy Burger, was founded in downtown Los Angeles, California, in 1946 by Tom Koulax. The original location is still in business as of this writing. Tommy Burger operates a chain of fast food-style burger restaurants in California and Nevada.
Today, the company has 34 locations in two states. The company is famous for making burgers and French fries topped with chili as a standard item. Koulax’s chili recipe tops just about everything made on the menu, including breakfast sandwiches.
Tommy Burgers is still owned and operated by members of the Koulax family.
After having headquarters in Glendale, California, for many years, the company recently moved its corporate office to Monrovia, California.
