Turkey Burgers at Tommy's

For some reason I don’t go over to Coventry when I’m looking for a place to eat. Last week my brother-in-law Jason was doing some work near there and wanted to go lunch. He was actually closer to Shaker Square but there aren’t that many options for lunch in square…er circle; especially with work clothes.

Since it was such a cold day I figured we’d try someplace with warm food (as opposed to subs).

I suggested we go to Tommy’s where the menu is huge. There’s something for everyone, whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or an omnivore.

I ordered the Sharpy burger which is spiced turkey burger on a hoagie roll with Pizza sauce, mozzarella / provalone / parmesan blend, lettuce, tomato and side of pickles, along with an order of fries. It was actually very good. I don’t eat a lot of turkey burgers (my favorite of all time is a place called Barrister’s in Southampton, NY) but this one was pretty darn tasty. The side of fries was huge.

Jason got the burger and a cup of the chili. He seemed to like it; but I think the chili was a little overpriced.

It’s pretty basic menu. I’m not going to act like it’s the greatest place on earth. It isn’t. Tommy’s puts out a quality product at a decent price. If you’re toting kids along, which I don’t have, it would be a great place to go. All in all, it’s a great locally owned restaurant.

  1. The next time you're looking for a lunch spot near Shaker Square consider Flying Cranes. They have great udon noodle soup. I've also tried a couple other Japanese dishes and I've never been disappointed. They have some American food but I've never tried any of it.

  2. Stuart, you and I are going to lunch at Flying Cranes. You tell me when and I'll be there.
