Tasty Pasta with Sauce

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!

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

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!

I really wanted to try this place and when I did we were not happy at all. Service was really bad and they were not busy al all. Pizza was average and not worth the price. For the location I expected a lot better service and taste.

This is a family favorite! We stop in all the time to have lunch; the pizza and calzones are great and the whole place I clean and cheerful. They also have a few old fashioned type video games like pac man and pinball.
