Found Toms on google. Had no idea what to expect as we mostly chose it for location. We were very pleasantly surprised to find it’s a true Memphis treasure. Good food, friendly staff. Adam was great and let us try rib tips too. Stop by....More

Long lines, no air conditioning, tables and chairs from another era. Food good, and priced right, but not upscale. Service all right.

Tom’s has been featured on the Food Network and we found out for ourselves exactly why. We had ribs with green beans and cole slaw. The best. And a slice of pecan pie to top it off. BBQ heaven. You can’t go wrong.

They were out of most menu items we wanted to order. What we did order was terrible. We saw it on Diners, Drive-In’s and Drives and were sadly disappointed.

The little place on a corner of the busy stop sign regulated intersection looked like a dive. Indeed it has been reviewed by Guy Fieri for his show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.” But looks are deceiving. You go through what appears to be an add...More
