It took me a while to even learn the name of this Burger joint. For about three months it was known as ‘new burger place’ and it was an infrequent stop off on our lunchtime burger circuit. This particular Tom & Eddies is in Deerfield Square, way up in the suburbs near to the Deerfield Metra station and is one of five locations in Illinois. Tom & Eddies tagline is “good taste in everything we do”
There are many signature burger options that are well worth getting, but it is often nicer to just play it simple and ‘Build your own’, in this case a simple Cheeseburger, fresh handmade patty of 100% angus beef with (in this case) swiss cheese. This was a good choice, but on the menu my favourite so far has been the ‘3 Mushrooms and Swiss’ Apart from the Angus burger this one is topped with Grilled shitake, cremini and oyster mushrooms, with swiss cheese, red onion and truffle ailoli on a gourmet roll. Just one of the many signature options.
If you fancy something slightly healthier then I would recommend the Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich. It even looks healthy in the picture, that is a lot more salad than I would normally allow anywhere near my plate in a Burger Joint. Here at Tom & Eddies this sandwich is a grilled chicken breast, a larger slice of prosciutto, melted swiss cheese, those mixed greens I just mentioned, a smear of garlic alioli and dijon mustard, all on a toasted ciabatta roll. This one of my faves at Tom & Eddies.
Its a pretty good small chain burger and sandwich joint, a little bit pricey, but probably value.
This Tom & Eddies is at 740 North Waukegan Road in Deerfield
