Another day, another BBQ joint. We went to Tom's on the recommendation of a friend and it was very good. Definitely not the best I've ever had but still good. We had never had rib tips so I had to ask what they were. For those of you like me that would have to ask, they are similar to the... More

Adam is sooooo awesome and so is the food. I got a little history lesson and "a little something special" thrown on my plate for being a first timer from out of town. I got the two meat plate with rib tips and pulled pork, turnip greens, fries, and they gave me ribs to try out. This is my first... More

The Pork Spare ribs just about fell of bone and the tasted wonderful!! If you even think you like coleslaw a little try this slaw it is amazing!!! I honestly could not stop eating it so make sure you have some on your plate. The best part of the visit though was Adam. Seriously by the time you are done... More

French Fries were stale old and Salty Ribs were mediocre Macaroni Salad recipe has changed not seasoned anymore The owner is gruff with the staff and barks orders. Staff doesn't look happy.

The food is fantastic! Very rustic set up,very comfortable. Staff was friendly. Sweet tea has enough sugar in it to put you into a diabetic coma.

This place has the best BBQ and I loved their turnip greens. The employees were really nice and helpful too. We'll definitely be back when we're in Memphis again!! My kids were surprised they liked Tennesse BBQ, but they did😝🤘

I really wanted to try this place because I saw the DDD episode. I was truly disappointed. We tried: pork, brisket, bologna, burnt ends The brisket was the best part. The sauce was not very good and the customer service was lacking as well. Probably will not return. Too many other great BBQ restaurants in Memphis.

My friend ordered the rib tips and I regretted that I didn't. There isn't much meat on them but the smoked flavor was really good. I ordered the pulled pork, mac and cheese, and collard greens. They were all good but nothing exceptional. The location is dirty and the sweet tea should have came with a warning label because it... More

Best BBQ restaurant we have been ever to. Both Chicken and Beef BBQ were amazing. We travelled 20 miles the second time just to go there again and eat. My whole family and children loved the food and requested to go there again. Owner, Adam, and the rest of the staff were super nice and friendly. I can't wait to... More
