Description: Tony Roma's is a full service, casual dining family restaurant where you can find premier BBQ ribs and steaks in locations across the world, including two in Calgary, and one in Banff. With over 150 family restaurant locations on six continents, Tony Roma's is one of the most globally recognizable names in the industry. Since its beginning nearly 40 years ago, Tony Roma's has been focused on serving its signature Baby Back Ribs. The company has won numerous awards across the country for the "Best Ribs" and also has won nationally acclaimed industry recognition as "The Best Ribs in America." Tony Roma's is not just a place for ribs anymore. We have expanded our menu to focus on variety for all guests; not just rib eaters. We have an extensive selection of Steaks and Seafood entrees along with the most unique appetizers and mini desserts in our segment today. We have redesigned our buildings and our service to meet the ever-changing mindset of our guests.

Something went really wrong during our visit to Tony Roma's. We've been to other restaurants of the franchise and we loved it. But, in Calgary, the waiter took 15 minutes after seating us for the first request. Meals arrived, but one of them was forgotten. It was a simple beef kids plate, but took went to the end of the line and took more 20 minutes to arrive. When arrived, the meat was spoiled. We requested to talk to the manager, but he/she never came. My younger child did not had dinner, and the restaurant did not charge for the spoiled meal, but we are sure that will never go back to a TR restaurant again.

Visited here with my husband, in laws and 2 young children. Service was excellent. Server checked back frequently without being intrusive. Food was good. Ribs are fall off the bone soft. Veggies and potatoes were great. Kids meal offers lots of choices great prices.

We were here on a Friday for dinner. There were 27 of us. Our waitress was super nice and professional. We all got what we ordered. Enjoyed the appetizers (onion loaf, kicking shrimp and crispy dry ribs). I got the steak mushroom and cheese flat bread which was OK. I think they forgot the mushroom. We had a great time connecting with family from out of town. Would definitely come here with a big group. Staff was pleasant and food was fine. Their menu offers lots of options from ribs, to chicken, fish, pasta and steak. They even have a kids menu with sliders, chicken fingers and ribs. Restaurant was nice and clean.

Tony Roma's is famous for ribs... or so I thought. The ribs are okay, nothing too special. Had a full rack of ribs, they were slathered in sauce, which helped to cover the fact they were probably cooked earlier, reheated and sauced. This is not real Southern Barbeque. The sides were just average as well. Had the beans, they were decent, the rice was just average. Overall the service was good, but the food was just okay. I probably wouldn't go back anytime soon, there are better options.
