Tommy’s Red Hots first opened its doors in early 1980 at our original location in Chicago, IL. Since then, we have expanded to 6 different locations to better serve the people of Illinois our delicious subs, sandwiches, beef, sausages, and more! We believe that our customers deserve great food served by great people. And of course, at even better prices. 

To make your dining experience even more affordable, we offer a daily special that features some of our most popular items off our menu, so that you can get your favorites at the best price. From polish sausage and Italian beef sandwiches to jumbo shrimp and baby back ribs, you are sure to find something you love on any day of the week. And that doesn’t even include our everyday special, 2 hot dogs, fries, and a drink for the low price of $8.00, or our value meals! Looking for something a little lighter? Don’t worry, we also have fresh salads, delicious pasta, and various side orders, so you can eat exactly what you want. 

We know how delicious our food is, and our reviews and customer testimonials confirm what we believe. Our customers only have positive things to say about Tommy’s, including:
