Good pizza! Nice 2 slice lunch special. They have more than pizza but I haven't tried anything. Pinball machine inside and TVs. Fun place to go eat or take out. They deliver 8 mile radius

Tomato Jake's is our absolute favorite pizza place. The different specialty pizzas are really good and different. Their crust is always perfect and they are always really friendly. We live in Cary and pass a lot of pizza places just to go to Tomato Jake's.

I enjoy their garlic wings on Thursdays, Wing Night. They dont taste like freezer burnt wings as you may experience at the other stores. My kids enjoy the pizza and the place is very kid friendly with a few games in the back.

Pizza was great, house made sausage was very good. Young lady working the counter wasn't very helpful when we were trying to work through the menu options and specials. Food came out in reasonable amount of time. I'll go again for sure

I have been here several times now. In my experience, don't order the single slices when your party could put down the whole pizza. And, if you order the single slices, the ones with less meat tend to heat better. But no complaints from me. Easy, chill pizza place with some beer options and a kid friendly environment. The pizza is the best in the area for large sharable NY style pies.

Pizza was absolutely delicious! Good service, clean restaurant, good prices, great choices for kids. Love that they use local ingredients and give leftover to the community shelters. Great place!

Probably the most bland pizza we've ever had. Not inedible but not memorable. It's a cute atmosphere, fun for the kids. But not for us. Staff is friendly. Although they forgot the paper for the tray. I'd suggest it's a decent place for families looking for easy and something their kids will finish. Free parking. It's mostly all self serve.

Been ordering here for 15 years. Every other time it’s been great but my recent experience was anything but. Ordered “regular” sized cheese pizza (sizes listed on website), garlic knuckles, and a pasta salad. Was delivered a wrong sized cold pizza, undercooked garlic knuckles, and the oil from the pasta salad was leaking out of the container and bag. Called and was only offered coupons in the mail. A little bit disappointing seeing as my family has been ordering here for 15 years. Regardless, Tomato Jakes is still a pretty good place.

Great retro new old atmosphere and incredibly tasty vegan pizza!! I used a $13 Groupon to get a $20 pizza and it was definitely the best vegan pizza I've ever tried. They use rice and potato to make the crust and it was delicious!! Highly recommend especially if you can't have normal Pizza!

Liberty Hound was my 2019 Restaurant Week pick of the week. It is tradition for me to always make sure I get to at least one restaurant though I happily visit more if I am able. I had a decent level of expectation knowing how popular this place is, especially with it being right in the heart of Canalside. It is always overflowing with happy commotion on summer nights with patio dining on the water and live music sometimes either hosted here or nearby.

My go-to spot for a steak sandwich, football, and good iced tea. The chubby clubby and the brownie are also faves of mine.

Love this place. Good pizza, great chicken tenders, and beer. The kids tear it up whenever we go. What more do you need??? Quickly becoming our weekend spot. Went there yesterday for lunch and may go for dinner today.

We're new to the area and had lunch at Tomato Jake's Pizzeria for the first time. We had pizza and it was very bland and under cooked. The cheese was not fully melted and we could still see individual pieces of cheese on the entire pizza. We didn't complain because we just thought that's how pizza was made here. But after reading the reviews maybe this was an unusual situation. We liked the atmosphere and it was busy but we're unlikely to return. Update 2/23/20: The owner was kind enough to send us certificates to give Tomato Jake's another try. We visited yesterday and had a great experience. The pizza was delicious and cooked just right. We also added a few more to toppings this time for added flavor. Thanks again and we'll be back!

Tomato Jake's is like an institution this spot has been here for ever I struggle to try to recall a time when tomato Jake's was not the main thing to do on this side of 40 many businesses have close down and many have opeedn up but what remains is that tomatoes Jake's is still hear they have great customer service like if the food aint ready right away maybe they will just give you a quick free drink for your trouble they have the cool Coke machine so that you can get the different sodas you like they have plenty of pizza seasoning toppings so you can put as much on as you want catering good for kids great parking

A family favorite in our house! All my kids choose Tomato Jake’s when asked where they want to get pizza from. We love the Whitey’s White pizza. It is AMAZING! Love that you can buy pizza by the slice if you want, or a whole pizza. Glenn, the owner is very friendly and supports the community. He was very warm and welcoming when we asked to set up to sell Girl Scout cookies for my daughter’s Troop!

I absolutely love Tomato Jakes! I love the fresh variety of toppings that they have. The food is always good ! I pretty much go here every Friday. I went in last night to pick up my pizza and it was concerning that the staff at the register taking the orders did not have on masks nor were there shields at the register to maintain social distancing. I am hoping that proper precautions will be taken to protect the staff and customers during this pandemic.

Stopped by for a pie while visiting family and waiting for the chiropractor. Fantastic customer service but even more amazing pizza 🍕! If in the area definitely worth checking out.
