Best hole-in-the-wall BBQ place in Lubbock.

Nothing fancy, just the best hickory smoked chopped beef sandwich in these parts. Order at the counter, load it up at the condiment bar, sit in an old school desk type chair and enjoy.

As other reviews indicate, the place is uniquely set up with it's 'school house chairs' up against the wall... That just takes some getting used to after a few visits, which the sandwiches will force you to do! They sell the Bingo Burgers as one of the hot-selling items, but I still opt for the sliced brisket sandwiches. I can... More

I stepped up to the counter, and ordered a sliced brisket sandwich. I slowly walked over to the condiment island, loaded my gift of love , with onions, a pepper, and bathed it with house sauce. I sat on what can only be described as the most uncomfortable elementary school desk. The first bite, had me hooked, I forgot about... More

Fun small "school house chairs" location. We had the beef brisket sandwich. Sauce was tangy and good. Beef could have been stacked thicker. Beef flavorful, but juice did not stay through sandwich. The bun is cheap and absorbs juice away from beef. This could been a much better sandwich, with controlled large portions and a better bun. Thanks for reading.... More

I don't know how long Tom and Bingo's has been here but I've been going for 35 years and every time I go, I'm always impressed that the chopped beef sandwich is still as good as it was the first time I tried it. Absolutely delicious. If you have not been in a while, go back and enjoy it again.... More

limited menu but if you want a good beef brisket sandwich, this is the place to get it. Their bbque sauce was good. Desks on either side of the restaurant let you sit while you eat, but not much of an enjoyable atmosphere. Recommend take out.

Sandwiches only. Just a lunch counter with limited seating. Very simple but delicious. Line out the door the day we were there.

No one knows how they do it, but they do it perfectly every single time. Support this local business. They do one thing, and they do it to perfection. Go. Eat.

The bbq is good, but I have to agree with several others that the price for what you get it extremely high. The desks are not comfortable and, although it may be regarded as "cute" by some, they make it almost uncomfortable to enjoy your meal. It is small and there is not enough seating many times. We purchased a... More
