Me and my kids visited for the first time and as a newby, the beautiful woman (staff) with a sweet smile helped me thru the order. I appreciated that! Food was off the chain! Great experience and will visit again!

We stopped here as soon as we arrived. Great food and reasonable price. Enjoyed sitting outside on the patio even when it was almost 100 degrees.

Have driven by this restaurant many times wondering about its fare. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the shrimp salad. The pork was filled with flavor and heaped high on the bun. The spicy sauce was just right. The shrimp salad was on a bed of mixed lettuce and was very tasty. Seating is outside (only a couple tables inside)... More

we stopped here for a dinner and the service was very good. You order at the counter and they bring it to your table. We had the BBQ Sandwich (we could have split one, they were so big!). The sandwiches were very tasty and they were brought to us quickly. The outdoor seating is in a courtyard (think New Orleans)... More

We had the smoked pulled turkey sandwich with chips and potato salad. Generous portions, turkey was hot and delicious! Potato salad was very, very good! Great service!

My family and I really enjoyed the selection of sandwiches at the Happy Tomato, as well as the seating on the patio which was shaded (a bonus). We liked the Happy Tomato because although almost hidden, one can appreciate the little nook that you seem to find the place is located. The vines over growing the shops around the patio... More
