Tommy's has earned cult status in LA thanks in part due to its famed double chili cheeseburger. Two well-seasoned beef patties, cheese, pickles, a glop of hearty chili and a thick slice of tomato have kept this chain going since its first store opened on Beverly in 1946, and still draw crowds at more than 25 locations in California. Not into chili? They're open early for breakfast burritos and hash browns as well.

Tommy's Burgers is an L.A. institution. I remember my parents eating there when I was a child. Lines used to form around the block at the original location on Beverly Blvd. and Rampart. Several imitators popped up and there was a lot of discussion about the "Original" Tommy's.

As a college student, my classmates and I often enjoyed a double chili cheeseburger after a night of studying. After all these years, the original Tommy's still stands in the same spot and serves their famous chili burgers 24 hours a day. They taste just as good as I remember. Their chili packs a lot of flavor and they cut the fattiness well with lots of pickles and mustard.

The burger is definitely a several napkin meal.
