I know when you read this if you are not from here you will say "I thought that place downtown in an alley way" is supposed to have the best ribs? Well I have lived in the Memphis area for over 20 years now, and by far Tom' has the most flavorful, tender ribs and BBQ around! They even have... More

We were very disappointed in the food here. Had baby back ribs.... very very dry with no flavor. My husband had beef nachos made from brisket which tasted NOTHING like brisket. Owner hollered at one of his employees... in front of all his customers. Very embarrassing to all on there. Bad experience. I would not recommend this place.

Toms is a little hole in the wall off of Getwell road. The brisket is to die for - and I don't even like brisket regularly. They have been featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives for their Rib Tips. The staff remembers you and always offers a smile. I am sure to stop by whenever in the area.

I had the Jumbo BBQ Pork sandwich with slaw on it with Onion Rings and a fountain drink all you want . The bbq was very tasty and I was full as a tick on a coon dog afterwards. The order was processed very quickly and the folks were very friendly. for under 10 bucks it was well worth it.... More

Everything was great, the wife had the brisket and I had the rib tips. In addition we shared a fried bologna sandwich. Great eats and this will be a must stop every time that we are in Memphis! Don't let this great tasting BBQ pass you up! It's a must try!

I'm a huge fan of local restaurants (and McDonald's, but that's only when TripAdvisor asks me if I visited one), so finding this hole in the wall restaurant was awesome. My wife loved the place by default, as she saw it on 'Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives,' which I'm pretty sure is where they get the bulk of their business from.... More

Went there for dinner while in town after hearing about it on DDD. I had the rib tips and my wife had the brisket. We've had a lot of brisket before and my wife swears this is the best brisket she's ever had anywhere. Rib tips were something I've never had before but after hearing Guy suggest them, I had... More

Ok, we decided to eat here after watching Dinner, Drive-inns, and Dives. Knowing that you have to taste a variety of menu items to rate a place fairly, we ordered the pork plate, beef plate, and a pulled pork sandwich. The verdict you might ask? We have had better! It just wasn't what we expected. Italian season that taste a... More

I had the rib tip plate. I was good but not great. Some bites were dry and some were great. I was there late on a Saturday lunch so maybe they had sat for a bit in the warmer. BBQ beans were good again but not great. Mac salad was dry but tasted house made. The key here was the... More
