Great BBQ!

This visit was definitely an experience. Don't let he deli environment scare you. The BBQ was very good. I had the pork and beef. They were both chopped. The seasoning was great. If I had to change one thing, I wish there was less fat in the meat. I will definitely visit again and you should... read more

I don't know why this place was featured on TV. It is definitely a dive, but not in a good way. Not in the I found a quaint place that nobody knows about but in the it needs some major cleaning and updating sense. The highly recommended rib tips and baby back ribs left a lot to desire in the...

Went here on our way through Memphis. Had the pork sandwich with slaw and sauce and it was okay at best. Not a place that I will be craving later.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch and had the ribs which were pretty good. The lady taking our order was nice! She was friendly and joked with us as we ordered. Decent prices. We ate in and people were friendly, we saw one staff give a man an extra piece of desert, which was kind. I would classify... More

Having stopped on numerous occasions, there is nothing on the menu at Tom's that isn't great. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. Your food is ready in moments. Fill yourself up with some delicious Memphis cuisine.....

This place is covered with pictures of the owner and that guy from Diners Drive Inns and Dives which was laughable. It was truly the worst BBQ I have ever had. Go somewhere else- anywhere will do.

I stopped at Tom's BBQ in West Memphis, AR about three years ago. I was on my way to Chicago from Little Rock so I didn't go all the way into Memphis but passed through West Memphis. I stopped at Tom's BBQ on I-55 just as a quick meal on the go. I was traveling alone so I didn't dine... More

Excellent ribs and BBQ. One of my favorites when I work in Southaven. Great atmosphere. I love their hot BBQ sauce. When you get close to Tom's the smell alone will make you stop and try it.

This wasn't the closest bar-b-que place, but it was worth the adventure. The bar-b-que was outstanding. We shared sides until we were stuffed.
