The theme is tex mex with a local flavour, meats are local, veggies are local or organic, and lots of vegetarian stuff for those that prefer no meat. They are family friendly with a kids menu of smaller portion quesadillas, tacos and burritos. We have eaten here twice with our family of four kids, burritos range from 10 to 15... More

I recently had lunch here with a group of women. I ordered the chorizo and chicken burrito. And I have to admit I was disappointed. The chips and salsa were great --- salsa had nice flavor but the burrito was bland. Waiter was fine....but why the window would be open on a freezing cold day I have not idea.

Quite rightly, Tomatillo's claim to fame is their use of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Stone barns veggies and meat from 'local' farms are featured prominently on their menu and even more so in their specials. So if you are in the mood for a great earthy burrito with tasty beef and spinach or looking for a spectacular veggie soup this... More

This place is overrated. The service is inconsistent, but generally poor. The food is average at best. Unfortunately it is not very clean -- The menus are usually covered in sauce, the tables and chairs are often sticky. One time we had to sit on napkins as otherwise our pants stuck to the chairs.....(I'm not kidding). In terms of food... More

Since updating the menu, this place is much better than it used to be. I've been here several times and would recommend it. The food is fresh and portions are right-sized. My only complaint is that the chips aren't that great and they aren't very generous with how many they give you!

I took my niece out for dinner for her birthday, and she wanted Mexican. I had never been here before so decided to give it a try. Generally speaking, the food was fine. It wasn't great. We started with the house guac. I found myself looking for the salt shaker on the table that wasn't there. It was pretty bland.... More

I love this place. The food is always fresh and delicious. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Their guacamole is to die for!!! My fiancee drives from NJ just to eat there.

Every time I've ordered food from here it's been very good. However half the time I have either gotten the wrong order (e.g. veggie tacos instead of chicken) or have had orders missing (no guacamole). I've called only to be put on hold for minutes. Too bad they're not more attentive to details
