Since 1965, Tommy's has been serving San Francisco with authentic Mexican and Yucatecan cuisine.

Tommy's also proudly pours the most extensive collection of 100% agave tequila outside of Mexico and makes what many believe to be the best margaritas on Earth.  Though often imittated, Tommy's has been at 5929 Geary Blvd. for its entire history.

In 1965 Tommy Bermejo and his wife Elmy focused their culinary talents and realized their long-time dream of opening a family restaurant specializing in the cuisine of their native Yucatan. To the great fortune of the city of San Francisco and visitors world wide, Tommy's Mexican Restaurant was born. Thanks to three decades of immeasurable dedication and an intense commitment to excellence, the Bermejos have built Tommy's into the extraordinary San Francisco institution that it is today. Just ask one of the countless regulars -Tommy's authentic Yucatecan cuisine, outrageous premium margaritas and an always-friendly Bermejo welcome, combine to provide an experience that is truly surpassed by none.

Ah, but there is so much more to the story! One cannot discuss Tommy's without acknowledging their reputation for housing The Premier Tequila Bar on Earth. Their dedication to providing the absolute finest selection of 100% agave tequilas is world-renowned. Consider yourself a tequila novice? Never fear - simply inquire and you'll soon find yourself on the fast track to expert, otherwise known as one of Tommy's elite group of Tequila Masters.

Although less than 5% of people who already drink tequila are knowledgeable about the exquisite qualities of a 100% agave tequila, Tommy's remains steadfastly committed to pouring nothing else. After all, how could Tommy's emphasize the significance of 100% agave in the creation of a superior tequila libation and not pour it exclusively for their customers? Case in point, when 100% agave tequilas were relatively unknown, they did the unthinkable. Tommy's became the first restaurant in the United States to serve Herradura Silver as their "house tequila" - arguably the finest un-aged 100% agave tequila on earth." As for the choice of Herradura, Tommy's has the utmost respect for the 130-year tradition of Tequila Herradura, and for their undying commitment to producing the finest tequila in the world.

Whether this is your first visit to Tommy's or your fiftieth, the Bermejos extend to you their warmest welcome, sincerely hope you will enjoy the Tommy's experience, and look forward to your return.
