“Don't lie to me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2008

We were looking for a place to eat on Christmas Day. Half the restaurants were closed, but tourists still need food. First we tried Dorado's. To their credit, the greeter told us that they were packed and understaffed and it would be at least an hour before we got food. We thanked him, left and went to Tom and Jerry's.

I told the greeter about this experience and asked her their status. She assured me that they were fine. Okay, seat us. Well, the main room is hopeless. The bar occupies most of it and smoking is allowed there. The non-smoking area is the U-shaped part around the bar. What a joke.

But there are other areas through some doors. I think they open up to the outside on nice days. They were reasonably smoke-free. Fine. We ordered a simple hamburger and a bison burger. And waited. And waited. It took just under an hour for the food to arrive. Both burgers had fries, which are billed add-ons that we didn't order. But we were hungry and the waiter had taken off. The burgers were okay, but nothing special and not worth the price. They were quite warm but not piping hot. The fries were lukewarm. A guest at the next table sent back her chicken wings because they were cold.

After giving up waiting to see the waiter again to get the bill, we got up and went to the door. Now he magically appeared and apologized for the poor service as they were short-staffed.

I wish we'd stayed at Dorado's. We would have received the food by the same time, the atmosphere and ambience were much better and, hey, they were honest.

“Great Food!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2007

I had never been to South Padre Island so I was unsure about where to eat. The 1st night we were there we tried out Amberjacks, but if i were to know about Tom & Jerry's that would have definately been my first choice. Great Food, Great Service, and low prices. It is definately home to the indoor beach party for really anybody!! Great environment and a lot of fun!

“How do you mess up Iced Tea?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2007

The Iced Tea was WAY watered down, and something tasted just not right with it.

Had the chicken fried chicken, and it was okay - just flash fried, and very hot. Fries were bland. Beans were spicy.

Wife had the Bison Burger - her review was 'okay' as well.
