One of Springfield's Best Kept Secrets Intends To Stay That Way!

One of Springfield's Best Kept Secrets Intends To Stay That Way!

On the way to work today I stopped for breakfast at a non-descript little white building known to most Springfielders simply as "Tommy’s". I have been to Tommy’s before, and have waited in line with utility workers, police officers, yuppies, and even a guy who I was pretty sure was homeless. Over a nearby cooler, which holds the orange juice, milk, soda, and beer, is a sign that says "No Beer Before 7am" which, I was assured today, is not meant as a joke. Another sign suggests if you don’t like the food or service, you can continue up the road to Krystal’s.
