Amazing BBQ - Amazing staff

We went because we had seen this restaurant on DDD, and it didn't disappoint. We were unsure what to get for dinner and just ordered pork sandwiches. The young man behind the counter told us we can't come to Memphis from Canada and just have pork sandwiches. He made us up an amazing platter of... read more

This is the first time we had tried a DDD recommendation. I had read the reviews so was prepared for the dining experience. I was not prepared for the food. Maybe I was thinking of beef tips, I didn't expect the rib tips to have bones in them. Maybe showing my nievate but I probably ate some bones before I... More

So, I have heard about Tom's BBQ since I moved here from the old IloveMemphis blogger. She said: eat these rib tips. I finally went (it is literally on the border of Tenn and MIss, which isn't really far but seemed that way). And, I am going to go back because she also said the pork chop sandwich is amazing....

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 too.

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.....
