Tony Roma's-Aiea

On a recent Tuesday we decided to head to Tony Roma's in Aiea to take advantage of their "Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays" promotion.

Before heading down there, we called to make sure the promotion was still valid, and we also wanted to make sure it was valid for lunch, since I know some "kids eat free" promotions are valid only for dinner or specific hours.

When DH called Tony Roma's in the morning, the person who answered sounded wasn't positive if the promotion was valid for lunch, so I decided to call again right before we were to head down there.

This time the person who answered confirmed that the promotion was still valid, and valid all day on Tuesdays.

So, we headed down to Tony Roma's and got there just after it opened at 11am--we were actually the first guests to arrive.

The complimentary bread.

DS2 had the Kids Pizza. The kids meals come with a drink, a side, and cookies!

The pizza was okay--I tasted a piece and it tasted like frozen pizza.

DS1 had the Kids Grilled Cheese.

He didn't eat that much because the bread was just too thick.

I ordered the Southwestern Chicken.

I thought the portion was rather small, but overall the chicken itself was good. It came with a side of salsa, which also tasted store-bought.

The dish comes with two sides. I ordered French Fries and Roma Tomato Pesto Salad--I swear it was like pico de gallo. I could not find any pesto in it at all!

DH ordered the Baby Back Ribs.

He really enjoyed the ribs.

He ordered it with sides of Rice Pilaf and Garlic Green Beans, but obviously he didn't get the green beans.

Since it took a while for us to get our food, he just ate the broccoli instead of asking the server for the green beans instead since we didn't want to wait even longer...

Overall, the food was okay, and although our server was friendly, we always had to flag him down whenever we wanted more water, more napkins, and even our check.

Almost every time we've gone to Tony Roma's, we've found that the service was slow, but friendly.

Even though the Kids Eat Free on Tuesdays promotion is a great deal, I just wish the service was better.

We usually have a positive experience whenever we go to Tony Roma's, and hopefully the next time we go things will be much, much better.
