Famous for... making you ill?
There are many Original Tommy’s around the LA/Las Vegas area, but I have only braved the Hollywood Blvd. location, right by the 101 freeway. I can see why so many people like Tommy’s Burgers, but for me I’d rather just eat a stick of butter and drink a can of $0.99 chili. Tommy’s is ‘famous’ for their use of chili on EVERYTHING. I’d say more like infamous, but sure enough, you can get chili on your fries, your burger, your hot dogs, and tamales… probably in your soda if you ask nicely. I like myself some greasy, bad-for-your-heart food, but when it brings your digestive tract to a full stop, maybe it’s time to re-think your meal. It may be a landmark, but I think that if you say "We're a Landmark!" enough people will start to agree with you.
