Tom's has some of the best BBQ anywhere...again, this restaurant is on our monthly rotation in town...get the brisket and don't be scared to ask for some burnt ends...the grilled cornbread cakes are out of this world and go great with anything on the menu...wings and pulled pork are winners as well...

Came here based off online reviews. Sampled the pulled pork and chicken. Both were not good. So I went with the wings, because it's hard to screw up wings. Or so I thought. Yuck! Dry as heck, no flavor, and really gritty. The French fries were great, at least. My gf had the brisket, and also felt extremely underwhelmed. If... More

So, I am sitting in Afghanistan... it happens when you are in the Marines... and my Executive Officer calls me into her office. "Gunny. Where are you going for leave?" she says... she wasn't much for mincing words... "Ma'am, I really don't have any plans... can I just stay here and continue to work?" I asked. "Nope. You are going...

Their ribs are great! The food is reasonably priced and they offer a military discount. The place is decorated with license plates and cool Southern memorabilia. It's my husband's favorite place to eat while in Lebanon.

Their brisket - as close to Texas brisket you will get this side of the big river :) Toms' beats the other 3 BBQ joints in town by a landslide. Great deserts as well.

After reading reviews, we decided to eat here. The ribs, brisket and pulled pork were good. The smoked chicken was rather dry and required a good coating of sauce. The sauces were sweet and spicy, sweet and sassy, and mustard. Greens and Mac & cheese were good. I like the fact that you can get a beer with your meal,... More

First time I ate here the BBQ pulled pork sandwich was very good and the side items were great. This time it was okay but the side items were cold. The sandwich was good. My wife had the brisket with fried green tomatoes and thought they were great.

Grabbed a great family-size carryout order here for a picnic lunch while visiting Nashville. Both the pulled pork and the brisket were wonderful. I did use a Groupon for this so the price was extra reasonable. Staff was very helpful in offering tastes, recommendations, and even making sure I had all the paper products for our little picnic. We thoroughly... More
