Being a Southern California native, I grew up loving Tommy's World Famous chili burgers.   In fact, it is probably my favorite hamburger on the planet.  So imagine the enthusiasm I had for a stop at Tommy's in Henderson, Nevada, during a recent Vegas trip.

Tommy's in Henderson is one of only a couple locations outside of California (the other also in the Vegas area.)  The restaurant was clean and, being 11am on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, nearly deserted.  All the better for my chili fix.

While I dove into a double cheeseburger and some chili cheese fries, my wife (not a chili lover - shame!) decided to try an advertised side burger special, the California Classic.  This is basically the Tommy's burger sans chili, plus spread.  Here's a pic:

She said it was tasty, although I can't imagine how without the chili.  Of course I can.  Those big ass beefsteak tomatoes and all the other fresh toppings still make a great sandwich.

As for me, I am still holding out hope that the Nevada extension is just a first step toward branching out to my local home town, Phoenix.  I know there are hundreds, if not thousands of other California transplants who are hoping for the same.
