Comfortable, quiet, relaxing, and full of hospitality. This place is filled with Southern comforts, but with a Northern chime. The warmth and love that serves you is well worth the meal you enjoy.

This place is reasonably priced and has awesome bbq! We came here on the recommendation of our hotel and it was a very satisfying meal after coming off of a long flight and long ride from the airport. I would definitely get the bbq chicken with their spicy sauce.

Happy Tomato is tucked away on a side street and a great place to visit on a nice day. The folks are friendly, the place is relaxed, service is good-order at counter, and the food is good. The ribs are exceptional and the plate is plentiful. Sandwiches are good and all ingredients are fresh. Menu selection is great for lunch... More

Me and my kids visited for the first time and as a newby, the beautiful woman (staff) with a sweet smile helped me thru the order. I appreciated that! Food was off the chain! Great experience and will visit again!

We stopped here as soon as we arrived. Great food and reasonable price. Enjoyed sitting outside on the patio even when it was almost 100 degrees.

Have driven by this restaurant many times wondering about its fare. Ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the shrimp salad. The pork was filled with flavor and heaped high on the bun. The spicy sauce was just right. The shrimp salad was on a bed of mixed lettuce and was very tasty. Seating is outside (only a couple tables inside)... More
