“Ambience nice, food Ok, fast service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Had the dog so was happy that she could go in the outside garden area with us to eat. You order inside and they serve it. Food came out fast. Ordered ribs and chicken but no ribs for lunch so I was disappointed in that. Chicken lunch was good but not super. Barbeque at Sonny's was better. Portions were large. Pulled pork sandwich was bland. Menu is large. I would like to try shrimp salad. Sunny, warm day so very nice on patio.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

Delicious food served quickly by friendly staff. We had pulled pork sandwiches, a shrimp salad sandwich, a blt and a huge order of ribs. Everyone was satisfied car sat outside in the shade and had a terrific meal. Cole slaw, potato salad and baked beans were a treat.

“cool day, great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

My wife and I came to the Happy Tomato for lunch on a cool February day. We sat inside at one of the small tables. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich with the spicy sauce. I had the pulled pork plate ( which included two sides) with the sweet sauce. They do offer a third sauce which is mustard based. The quality of the meal was superb. We have had barbecue in several southern states and this was the best that we've had. Go there and you will not be disappointed. Try a warmer day, so you can enjoy the lovely patio area for your meal.

“Great good, casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

We ordered the pulled pork sandwiches. Large portions and very tasty; my mom and I split a sandwich and were full. There aren't many tables inside, but if it is a nice day there are lots of tables out on the patio. They also serve beer and wine. Everything was reasonably priced.
