The Los Angeles-based Original Tommy’s is celebrating its 70th anniversary Sunday by offering customers a deeply discounted deal on one of its classic menu items.

From noon to midnight, customers can purchase a chili burger and a can of soda for just 70 cents.

The meal deal is only good at the popular hamburger chain’s original “shack” location in Westlake, which is at 2575 Beverly Blvd.

Original Tommy’s dates back to 1946, when founder Tommy Koulax opened his first stand featuring the chili-topped creation on the corner of Beverly and Rampart boulevards, according to the restaurant’s website.

In the decades since opening in L.A., the iconic fast food burger joint has expanded to 32 locations across Southern California and Nevada, feeding some fifty million customers along the way.

More than 10,000 people are expected to visit the original location and take part in the celebration throughout the day, a news release from the company stated.

Other festivities include live entertainment, prize giveaways and an appearance by the Original Tommy’s Classic Car and Race Car.

Members of the Koulax family will also be on hand.
