I order them this way and on rare occasion I actually get them . Not at Tony Romas .Their Fries came out soggy luke warm... More

This was the only chain restaurant we visited while on vacation last week and it was one of the worst places we ate. Maybe it's because we didn't get the ribs that everyone is raving about or maybe it's because we visited on a Monday, or maybe it's just not that great. The food was so-so, same fair as every...

The waitstaff were lovely and attentive. The food was the same high quality I've had at Tony Roma's in Australia. Best ribs I've had so far

My husband loves ribs so we try different rib specialty restaurants as we travel. However my favorite ribs are right here at home in San Diego. Tony Roma's ribs are tasty and finger licking good. The pork literally falls off the bone. Since we are retired, we enjoy the Tuesday afternoon special where we get individual attention before the crowd... More

Our family ate dinner at this restaurant while visiting San Diego. It was across the street from Catamaran Resort and convenient for a meal without driving in CA traffic. Our meal was very good and the prices reasonable.

Our server was Lauren, she was always out side checking on us. The ribs were great. She also gave us a coupon for a discount which we will use in July, right across from the catamaran resort, and a hop skip and jump to the beach

Had group of 40 people, worked with Matt Mazzella at Tony Roma's and couldn't be happier with our evening out! Mr. Mazzella created a menu with 4 choices (I asked for condensed menu to reduce confusion with large group) for our specific group that included a wide range of items or we could have ordered from the menu. The service... More

Nice familly style restaurant and bar with sports channels playing and quality food. We ate here 3 times during our stay and we were only in San Diego for 2 nights so guess that says it's pretty good!

Tried Tony Roma's as it was close to the hotel and our first night in San Diego. Parking is a bit of a problem but with patience one can find a place to park. The atmosphere was not very inviting and the service very quick and non caring. We ordered the ribs (of course) but very disappointed as they were... More

My family and I ate here after a day at Pacific Beach. Food here is your typical chain restaurant food. We were the only customers in there at the time and my children's french fries were soggy and cold along with my husband baked potato.The steak on our flatbread was good, minus the fact that it seemed extremely oily.
