This is one of those borderline review situations as I thought the food at Tony Roma's in Encino was good but not sure I'd call it 'very good'. However I do think it was better than 'average' and hence they have lucked out with a 'Very Good' review ranking. So this branch of this American chain could do with a... More

It's no secret that Tony Roma's has more than Ribs. They have a wide variety and excellent menu selections. The staff is one of the most congenial I have ever experienced and the service is excellent. I highly recommend this Encino location.

I order the same thing every time I come. Baby back ribs....mmm so delicious. We also had a very good waitress. We had 6 people and everyone love their food. Plenty of parking.

Nice restaurant. The ribs were okay, the Steakhouse Burger and the Chipotle Chicken Salad were very good. Our waitress did a good job even though they were very busy.

Wholesome traditional American food at a very affordable price, good service and comfortable seating. Not my first visit and for sure not the last!

I was unpleasantly surprised at the quality of Tony Roma's in Encino, both in terms of food and customer service. When I arrived, it took several minutes for anyone to even greet me. A couple waiters passed by without even a smile or acknowledgement. When someone did finally come, they assumed I'd want to sit in the bar area because... More

Haven't been to Tony Roma's in years and boy did it not dissappoint! I had almost forgotten how good they are. I used to come here for the babyback's but this time I had both the babybacks and the beef ribs and found them both cooked to fall off the bone perfection. I also really enjoyed the new sauces (I...

Been here 20 times or more and always wonderful. I just get the Baby Back Ribs. Attentive staff takes care of you. If you do not drink, do not sit in the bar. That's it!

In spite of them not having the reservation I made the week before for our party of 13 (!), they managed to seat us pretty quicky. Our waiter was great, and we enjoyed good service for exactly the meal we were looking for. The baby back and St. Louis ribs were just great, and others in our party enjoyed roasted... More

I had never been to a Tony Roma's before, but my colleague wanted to go there for lunch. I got the short rib for lunch. It wasn't bad and the soup that came with it was also pretty good. I've had better food before, but it's not bad for a chain restaurant.

Thank pmtola
