Great sandwich

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.... read 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

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.

Best place in Lubbock for a BBQ sandwich! Very small seating area...I usually just "grab & go"! Locally owned...great food...great owners!

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

The nice young couple who own this place accommodated my request for some slices of brisket -- in other words, not a sandwich -- only because it was the end of their day. Fair enough. The brisket was juicy, flavorful, just enough fat for my taste. Tom was careful to give me a range of slices: medium, rarer, and chopped.... More

Interesting little restaurant tucked in the middle of Lubbock. The meat is tender and juicy and the fixins are simple. The school desks that provide seating are an interesting touch. I though it a bit pricey for the size of the sandwiches--but they WERE good.

Home owned, consistently perfect BBQ, and totally deserving of all its acclaim in Texas Monthly, Texas Country Reporter and every other review I've seen. Simply great BBQ.
