Best of 2000: Best Family Restaurant

Tomatoes Restaurant
4346 Bonita Road, Bonita
(619) 479-8494

Those who live in southeast county are fortunate because Tomatoes Restaurant, which describes itself as "health-oriented American," is located there. But this family restaurant is worth the drive no matter where you reside. Tomatoes serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and not only gives you lots of good taste and flavor, but lots of food for your dollar. Top price for a dinner entrée with soup or salad is $12.95 for salmon. Breakfast omelets are an especially good buy, served with choice of potatoes, fried green tomatoes, hush puppies, plus choice of biscuit, English muffin, or toast ($6.95 and $7.95). Sandwiches -- the most popular are meatloaf melt with cheddar cheese, mahi-mahi filet, and a true vegetarian garden burger -- are also available. Homestyle entrées include meatloaf, liver and onions, corned beef and cabbage. There's also soup served in an edible bread bowl, pastas, seafood, and chicken dishes. Best of all is the atmosphere -- very loving with personal service.
