“Good food”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Food was good, service a little slow.... Casa Tomas has been around forever ! I used to eat there in the 70's while I attended college (or skipped classes). We had to have a liquor membership since the town was dry... wow, times have changed! Frozen margarita was ok... chips and sauce - very good. Bar area seemed a little dark and lots of dirty glasses on the bar, guess they needed some extra help! Maybe paint the area and brighten it up some?

“OK, we are back in business!!...”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Our last visit to one of our long-standing favorite restaurants was not a happy experience. I wrote a review about that visit, which anyone can read. So, because I did say we would give it another chance, we did. We were here on a weekday evening around 9PM. Our waiter was prompt, friendly and efficient. We ordered our favorite meals (oh, same meals for about 30 years now, LOL!) and this time they were excellent!! So happy for us, and so happy for the restaurant, as they will continue to receive our business when we visit town! Other staff were busy and the place was clean and staff was working at keeping it that way. Prices a bit higher. Bathrooms clean. And, they were much busier this time around, good for them!

“Something is broken at Casa Tomas!!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant for many years. We ate there on February 9th in late afternoon, and immediately noticed that most of the tables used during the noon hour rush had not been bussed. There was no one at the hostess station to greet us, and it was nearly five minutes before the hostess made an appearance and seated us. The section was moderately busy, with probably seven or eight guests already seated, with may three or four working on their food. We waited---and waited---finally the hostess came to the table to get our drink orders, stating that our waitress would be with us shortly. She wasn't. She was the only waitress working the section, yet we saw at least two others circulating in and out of the kitchen, apparently with no objectives. The hostess returned with our drinks, then brought out our chips and salsa. The waitress finally made her appearance and took our order. The food came out fairly quickly, but was lacking in flavor as compared to the "old days". My wife's relleno was tasteless. After we finished, we waited for maybe ten minutes to get the check. During the wait, my wife went to the restroom. When she returned she told me (and the hostess) that it was in serious need of attention. I will not ruin your day with gross details, but it was BAD. Even worse, was the attitude of the hostess, who said that "they would get around to checking it soon". When we left, it had not yet been checked. As we walked off their front "porch" we noticed two employees, a waiter and waitress, sitting on the table smoking a cigarette. The tables inside had not yet been cleaned, and here are two of them on a smoke break with deplorable conditions in the restroom. My wife and one of her best friends went there again on the 21st of February for lunch. The food was again, tasteless, and the wait staff had a really bad attitude. It was high noon, and she said that in addition to she and her friend, there was only two other people in the restaurant. This establishment needs to hire a manager who will kick some b---t and get this place back on track or it will be history, and that would be a shame.
