Had my final lunch at Tom's Tavern last week. The are closing for good tomorrow. It was nice to see a line out the door for people waiting for a table, just like in the old days and I've been going to Tom's since I moved to Boulder in 1968. Tom's is a no-frills, basic burger joint. Did they serve the world's best, most creative burger? Nope. But it was fresh, cooked perfectly and the fries were excellent. So was the "dip" of salad. The unpretentious decor was truly refreshing and the servers were efficient and didn't feel the need to tell you their name. My favorite was the Valerie Perrine look-alike from the early '80s. I'm going to miss this Boulder icon.
