“Not bad, but Applebee's next door is a world better.....”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Was staying at the Moorpark next door and ventured over for dinner. It's OK, but that's all it is. Food looks great in the pictures but quite dissimilar when it arrives at the table. Ribs were so-so.
Honestly - nothing much to moan about, nothing much to rave about. But it'll serve a need and fill you up when you're hungry.
But if you want this sort of food - go to Applebee's next door - they are massively better!

“It's a Tony Romas”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

In San Jose on business and this place is next door to the hotel. Had dinner here my first night in town. Food was average and the service was good. Ribs were a little dry and beef medallions were a bit under cooked and tough. Good flavor to all. What can I say, it's a Tony Roma's. If you are looking for something unique or great, go elsewhere. If you are hungry and want decent (though average) ribs, give it a try.

“So good that I ate too much!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is one of our favorite restaurant chains. That said, this was one of the best we've eaten at lately. The servers were friendly and very attentive to our needs despite a packed room. We recommend the baby back ribs with a baked potato and the coleslaw. I enjoyed the strawberry-lemonade, but they have a full bar service, too. We were too stuffed to enjoy any dessert. Ribs run from $19.00-$25.00 and that includes bread and 2 sides.

“Family dinner”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

We went as a group and had soups, salads, buffalo wings, and entrees. The ribs are amazing, the salads are fresh to order the way you want them and the potato cheddar soup is amazing. The service is always great and the atmosphere is pleasant. Great value and food.

“Good Steaks....good ribs”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We visited on a Sat. evening during the holidays. The meals were good....the service was excellent....the atmosphere was comfortable and not rushed. We were very happy with the restaurant location and with our food choices. My husband ordered his steak "Plain" with no seasonings...and he said it was great!!
Although we do not normally gravitate to "chain restaurants," this one will be an exception. We shall return when we are in the San Jose area.
