stopped in for a sandwich while on a recent visit. Had the barbeque sandwich and it was delish. HUGE portion and I like that they gave me lots of pickles. It's hardwood smoked and had excellent flavor. Served with chips. My husband had the BBQ plate and the potato salad was very tasty. Awesome outdoor seating in a beautiful shady... More

Delicious! Fresh and perfectly cooked/seasoned meat. 1/2 chicken with baked beans and slaw. Enjoyed every bite. Pork was excellent. You get a lot of food for the money! Also the owner is super friendly,funny, and welcoming! The only negative is that there isn't a Happy Tomato in Wisconsin (where we're from). We will be back next year for sure!

The courtyard was sunny and comfortable. The food was deli style sandwiches. Inexpensive eating on a nice day

Great lunch stop! The BBQ was recommend as the best in the area and it sure was. The shrimp salad was wonderful and very fresh. Most of the seating is outdoors.

If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault. Great friendly staff and a huge sandwich. We got the sweet BBQ sauce with our sandwiches. Lean, tasty and just right.

All I can say is that Happy Tomato has spoiled us on ribs anywhere else. They are HUGE, smoked impeccably, and with terrific sauce on the side. In addition, they have amazing cole slaw, baked beans, and terrific chicken and tuna salads, if you are looking for that instead. They are only open until 5, so make sure to get... More
