Stopped in for lunch for something light but filling. Smashing Tomato has a lunch menu with a 6" pizza and salad that is awesome!! They also have a tomato basil soup that is top notch. You have to try it!!

We were in town just for the weekend, but we went to Smashing Tomato twice! The service was so fast and very friendly. The managers on both days were doing a great job being genuinely welcoming and hospitable while also keeping their young staff moving!...More
