Tom & Eddie's gets “Dressed To The Nines”

Take a couple of former McDonald’s execs, put ’em in the western suburbs of Chicago, and what do you get? Tom & Eddie’s!

This new burger place is not what you’d expect from Mickey D vets. Cara Carriveau told me they stopped by the WTMX studios yesterday and she was blown away by their burgers. One of her favorites was the Islander, made of Ahi Tuna (pictured). See? Not what you’d expect at all.

Neither are their promotions, which start today with their grand opening. From the moment they open their doors at 10am until Tuesday, September 7, they’ve got deals and contests ranging from a free meal if you wear a tux or an evening gown, to a classic car show during “American Classic: Tried & True” Day, to giveaways of iPods and iPhones on “An Apple A Day” Day.

Take a look at these promotions and you may want a burger a day!
