Meh. Not really seeing what the buzz is about. We're new to the area and were told we have to try Tom Wahl's- that it's an institution in the area. We figured go big or go home, so we went to the Avon location. I...More

I’ve been here before and get a white hotdog meal and it’s good. This time it was horrible! It looked gross and tasted gross. My dog wouldn’t even eat it. Very disappointed. I hope this was just a fluke.

Tom Wahl's is a family tradition. They have burgers, dogs, and chicken. It is a bit nicer than a fast food restaurant and prices are higher. Save room for ice cream!

I stopped last week while on business in Avon. The malted milkshake is my favorite and has been since I was a boy. We would stop on the way home from my dad’s alumni weekends at Geneseo and this was the highlight! Great burgers, shakes...More

Tom Wahl's (or Bill Gray's, depending on where you are) is a good place for hot dog stand type food: burgers, fries, onion rings, hot dogs and milkshakes. They're good but pretty standard but the custard is creamy and delicious - the best part!

Stopped by Tom Wahl's on the way to the finger lakes. Nice little drive-in right off route 5. Or so we thought. Inside the place is huge. It can easily fit a couple hundred people in that space. Very organized layout and super delicious food....More

I was not at Wahl's recently, but my wife is in the Rochester area right now and she reminded me of one of our all time favorite fast food places - one we wish we could transport to our current location in Joliet, IL. We...More

Stopped in for lunch and it was very busy, the wait time was very reasonable. Had cheeseburgers with fries. The food was very tasty, the fries were cooked to perfection, the burgers could have been a little warmer. I would still return here and recommend...More

Tom Wahl's in Avon has been a family tradition for upstate New Yorkers since 1955. Customers have been known to travel great distances just to enjoy a juicy Wahlburger™, hot crispy fries and a frosted mug or two of our delicious handcrafted root beer. Today, we still mix the root beer in each store by hand, the same as Tom's first batch, but we now have 9 upstate locations.
