Great pizza- I especially love their sauce. I don't think you can beat the value for the price of the per-slice options. I've tried veggie and pepperoni options- I think that they do the veggies better. Service was good, too.

Hate to write a bad review but Tomato Jake's needs to step up its service. This is a very popular place near Southpoint Mall and is very popular with families. Ate dinner with my daughter and there was a long line to order. You order at the counter and then pick up your order. Well the first problem is they... More

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

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.

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
