Pizza and Trivia

Wednesday trivia (8pm) is fun, but crowded- Get there a hour early. The pizza is pretty good too. They sell slices, which is nice. The intercom system could improve because listening for your "card" to be called can be difficult, especially on trivia night.

The thing I like best about Tomato Jake's is that you can order individual slices of a wide variety of pizzas. They have all the traditional combinations and some signature pizzas as well. You order at the counter and then pick up your meal and take it to your seat. There are free refills on all the soft drinks. Great... More

Salad and pizza available. The food was good. It can get noisy and there are a lot of kids, so it is not a relaxing environment. Good for catching a quick bite along the ATT.

This place can be iffy. I guess it all depends who is in the kitchen. This trip was good and bad. The slice of pizza was good and my husbands chicken philly was awesome. I usually get the italian sub that comes with their homemade italian dressing and it's usually good. This time it was horrible. There was so much... More

It's really tough to find a family friendly place to eat where the food it not only good but worth the price. We live in Greensboro NC but every time we are in Raleigh we have to stop here. Our three children all love Tomoto Jakes and even my picky wife can't find much she won't eat. This is a... More

Aka Spaghetti :-) very good. Great food, great atmosphere, cool music, not so great customer service. the young lady came off as annoyed and ready to go home. What happened to service with a smile? I sure hope her day gets better.... over all food is really good!

Fantastic pizza joint, the cheeseburger pizza is a classic but plenty of options to make your own and the crispy crunch fries are fab

I must admit that the primary reason I go to Tomato Jake's is it's local and the people who work there are so friendly. Is it reasonably priced? Probably not. It is certainly not New York style pizza and as good as their pie's are they are still more expensive than a similar pie in NYC. We had a large... More

Have eaten here several times, since I work in the area. The pizza is great, made fresh, daily. There's always creative pizza combinations on display, and they offer a by-the-slice combo. I also appreciate the fact that Tomato Jake's offers a discount to those of us who work nearby. Highly recommend this place for the food and fun atmosphere!
