Welcome To Dancing Tomato

Welcome to the Dancing Tomato, a local Take-Outery and Virginia Beach’s best kept secret! Though we are a bit off the beaten path, once you find us we're sure to become one of your favorite Virginia Beach lunch spots. With only four (that’s right four) tables, we are quite casual and take pride in making delicious lunch selections for our customers to take out, or, if you can catch an empty table, eat in!

Our signature roast beef, fennel crusted pork loin, and grilled chicken breast are cooked in house. Our deli menu also features the finest Dietz and Watson Smoked Turkey, Black Forest Ham, and Naval Pastrami. All food at the Dancing Tomato is made to order and we can fill (most) special requests (although removing the onions from French Onion Soup is fairly difficult-true story!)

So come enjoy a fresh, local lunch at the Dancing Tomato today. We offer catering to parties of eight or more and will even customize your event, since we’re small and all about y'all.

From décor, to food, to budget, we’ve got you covered at the Dancing Tomato!

We Are Dancing Tomato

In July of 2008, only after four months of flooring, sanding, painting, building, cleaning, shouting, spending, crying, second guessing, and nail biting anticipation, the Dancing Tomato opened to 25 excited customers (mostly friends, but hey, what are friends for!?)

Prior to opening the Dancing Tomato, owner Laura Parker worked in Long Term Care as an Activities Director for eight wonderful years. While there, Laura noticed the residents would talk about how much they missed cooking, so she began getting everyone together to make soup (with plenty of okra, thank you very much). With Laura stirring the pot and everyone working to their own ability, the joy that a simple bowl of soup brought to the residents was so wonderful; Laura told them if she had another job it would be making soup. Little did she know that the sky would open up and an opportunity would fall right into Laura’s lap, after her great friend, Steve, bought the building that would soon become the Dancing Tomato!

Everything aligned at once for Laura. More luck came pouring in when Tom Johnston (whom she had met when he was eight) came in to help her on Fridays, his day off from another restaurant job. Soon, Tom had a sudden change in employment and became available to work full time at the Dancing Tomato. As it turns out Tom’s quirky people and social skills are only eclipsed by his samurai-like knife skills. Moreover, his creativity and amazing palate inspires him to make one of the best Potato Soups on the planet!

Our friendly smiling person at the front counter makes sure that every call is answered, orders are kept straight, and the Dancing Tomato is running smoothly.

We believe our amazing staff, outstanding food, and homey environment will keep you coming back to the Dancing Tomato for many years to come!
