Whether sitting at the bar having a drink and eating there or at a table, the atmosphere and the food are excellent!!! Their butter for their bread is awesome and so is their soup of chicken & rice, all of their food is excellent, you can go wrong with this place!

Tony Roma's never disappoints. The food is great. I have never found the service to be other than top notch. The newly remodeled interior of the restaurant provides a comfortable and attractive surrounding for the food which is always presented in an appealing manner. The desserts, if you have room for one, are delicious and artfully arranged. They are very... More

This restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere and very relaxing which makes for great eating. The beef ribs are delicious and very fulfilling. The sauce is very good as well. Great customer service and decent prices as well. would really recommend this establishment to everyone.

Nice Ribs and good service here on a slow Thursday night. Dad and I both had ribs. Fall off the bone, god sauce but I'd prefer just a little spicier. Nice wine and beer selection to compliment. I substituted the t'alapenio soup (spicy but good) and grilled veggies (would have liked larger serving). Cold slaw was very small portion also.... More
