Love this place!

I live in the neighborhood and dine here with my family at least once a month! I never had a bad meal, service or incident. The staff is down-home and the house margarita's are stiff. The Garbage-Can Nachos are to-die-for! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I would've given this review the full five stars, but the parking does suck at times. Ha Ha! Food...Good....Parking......Sucks!

I bring my family here often. They love it.

The Tuna is great, the burgers are huge, but the ribs are excellent, comparable to TJ Ribs in B.R., which are the best I've ever had.

FIVE STAR FOOD IN A QUAINT LITTLE PLACE:)

We ordered the seared tuna in bearnaise sauce served with vegetables which are cut fresh dailey, and spanish rice. IT WAS A FIVE STAR DISH... I have never had a better tuna dish in my life. DELICOUS........ The friendly and attractive waitress topped it off perfectly...We will definetly be back....

FOOD FAIR, SERVICE IS A JOKE!

THE FOOD IS FAIR.... THE SERVICE SUCKED!!! NOT ONE SMILE FROM EITHER WAITRESS. THE FIRST WAITRESS BRUSHED US OFF TO ANOTHER WAITRESS FIRST OF ALL. NOT ONCE DID I GET ASKED IF I WANTED ANOTHER MARGARITA AFTER SITTING THERE WITH AN EMPTY GLASS. WE NEVER RECEIVED OUR SIDE OF SOUR CREAM, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS WROTE ON THE TICKET AND THEN THEY HAD THE NERVE TO SCRATCH IT OUT!!! UN FREAKING BELIEVEABLE!!!! THERE WAS A HAIR ON MY GARLIC BREAD, I DID ASK FOR ANOTHER PIECE TO GO WITH MY TAKE HOME BOX, AND EVEN SHOWED THE HAIR TO HER.... WE RECEIVED THE BOXES, THE CHECK, AND THAT WAS IT... WE PAID THE BILL AND LEFT A COMMENT TO EVERYTHING THAT WE FOUND TO BE SH*TTY. WE LEFT NO TIP. OH, AND WHEN WE WERE WALKING OUT THE DOOR, THE WAITRESS MENTIONS THE BREAD!!! GIMME A F**KING BREAK. WE WORK IN A RESTARAUNT OURSELVES AND THIS IS WHY WE FOUND THE SERVICE TO BE A SHAME.

Love the Tomato!

I love this place. It's such a little hole in the wall, but it's so wonderful. The food is fresh and, for having such a large range of it, surprisingly authentic! The waitresses are all so sweet and always make you feel welcome. My favorite are the enchiladas, the spinach dip, and when they have 'em, the BBQ ribs!! They also have a KILLER margarita! I also agree with the last review... get ya a RC Cola while you're there, it'll bring you back to the 90s!!

Awesome Food!

To the person who said the tacos were soggy, they're soft tacos. They do not have crunchy tacos.

I personally have never had anything but fabulous service and excellent food every time I've gone to the Blue Tomato. In fact, when I've had a rough week at work, one of the ways I treat myself is to get some Blue Tomato. Their burgers are so huge that they could be mistaken for a whole meatloaf on bread! The spaghetti and meatballs is simple but wonderful, meatballs are gigantic. My favorite is the enchiladas, both beef and chicken ones, and with them I always request a side of their scrumptous guacamole.

I suppose anyone could have a one time bad time at any place. I urge the person who didn't like the service/food to give it another try.

Food's delicious

I love the food at the Blue Tomato. They keep it simple, but it's always tasty. If your looking for a small casual spot, a hole in the wall, this place is an authentic Southeast LA little spot. Get an RC Cola while you're there! You don't know what you're missing.

Over-rated

This place was not that great. My two friends have been raving about it for months and I finally decided to try it. I have been craving Mexican Food so I have been trying Mexican food all over the city. We first ordered chips and salsa. Then, I ordered tacos and my boyfriend ordered a chicken quesadilla. The chips and salsa never came out. The other food came out a half an hour later. The taco shells were soggy and the pork made the whole thing really dry. I asked for salsa and she gave me louisiana hot sauce. They never refilled our waters. The people sitting next to us actually left because they waited about 20 min to even get their orders taken. The food was OK, but definately not worth the horrible service.

Carreta's Grill on Veterans includes chips and salsa and has a very big lunch menu. Also they are very reasonably priced. I would recommend going there before ever going to the blue tomato.

Yummy!!

If you are looking for someplace casual, fun, for cocktails and food this is the place. Although the bar area is not so big , only enough room for a few tables and video poker machines, it's perfect for a few magaritas and dinner after work.

Parking could be an issue but if you till Jefferson Feed is closed you can usually park in the front of their lot. The hamburgers are the biggest I have ever seen (Including Port of Call) and delicious. Usually my husband and I will split the burger and order 1 side of fries. Their Pulled Pork is to die for.

I agree that some of what the other reveiwers had to say regarding the condition of the restuarant is true . However, some of the best restuarants in this city are not the newest and/or cleanest and your not going to patron them in a cocktail gown.
