Hamburger Wars

Harkening back to my college days, the go to place for the best hamburger of course was Tommy's World Famous Original Hamburgers (shown here ), the iconic hamburger joint in LA since 1946 famous for chili burgers.

Not wanting to let a good idea go unstolen, a proliferation of knockoffs erupted in the late 70's trading on this success all with the same tag line and bright red decor -- Thomas's, Thoma's, Tomy's, Thammy's , and this one, Big Tomy's. Most have gone by the wayside while the original has prospered and thrived.

This works so wonderfully in B&W. Interesting history to go with the photo - so good to know that the original is still prospering!
