A good alternative when all of the other places along the beach are packed on a busy summer evening. Same food you'd find at any of their places, but at least we were seated and fed in short order.

When we finally got our food, it was really good. Unfortunately, the waiter informed us 30 minutes after we had ordered that he forgot to put our order in with the kitchen. We weren't even offered a percentage off the bill, just some rolls and butter to keep us quiet.

We came for the $10 pound rib special. We waited a good 30 minutes even though half of the restaurant was empty. When we were finally seated it took forever to get our order taken. Then it took forever to get our food. But once the food came we were not disappointed. The ribs were amazing. No fat whatsoever and... More

Visited Tony Roma's twice, in the same day! First visit in the afternoon was for a much needed drink after all that hard sunbathing and people watching on the beach! the restaurant was just over the way from our hotel, the catamaran and it just "had it be a bit cheaper" so we popped in. Great bar man, classic service... More

We asked to sit out on patio. Took quite a while to get waited on, I thought they forgot about us! Our waiter was great, kept making the rounds and checking on us. It has been years since I ate at Tony Roma's, I've had better. it was ok.

We had a party of 20 with one infant and one person in a wheelchair. Tony Roma's accommodated us easily and their wait staff seemed fully capable of handling the crowd. We went on a Sunday night in late July and the restaurant wasn't too crowded and we weren't wanting for attention from the wait staff or kitchen. We all... 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
