“A Gluten-free Tip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Tony's has great food, but almost all the menu options include pizza, pasta, or breading, so it isn't usually a place for people with celiac disease. But on my husband's last birthday, I brought over a package of gluten-free penne, and they cooked it up and served it with his favorite vodka sauce. (I actually dropped the g-f pasta off the day before and called when I was leaving home, so when we arrived, the meal was ready to serve.) They didn't charge less because I had brought the pasta but they didn't charge more for the trouble of cooking the pasta separately, which I thought was a good deal. I would talk to them in advance--I wouldn't just show up with a package of gluten-free pasta. But Tony's will definitely work with people with food allergies.

“Fun family owned cafe with great tasting pizza, subs and cheesesteaks.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011 via mobile

Looking for a "not-chain" family friendly casual place to end our afternoon at the Christmas tree farm and Tony's Cafe hit the spot. We were greeted the second we walked in the door and had great service and great food. The chicken cheesesteak was amazing.

“They don't close when they say!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011 via mobile

Don't believe the closing time... 10 o'clock doesn't mean 10 o'clock. At 9:50 they won't prepare anything. My wife and I stopped by to get a cheese steak and everything was shut down, they offered me old pizza! In the old ays, 10 o'clock close meant to the customer not the emploees. You start closing / cleaning up at 10!
