What is not to like at Tom's Thumb Market? Great food, excellent selection of beer and wine and more. No ordinary pit stop.

“Gotta Go Here!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

First off, I would never eat at a car wash, ever. I am so glad I broke my rule for this place. We were in desperate need of a car wash and came across this place online. It is located a little off the beaten path, but the car wash was great - they do a really nice job on the windows.

Now to the best part - while waiting for the car wash we had the best BBQ. I know - crazy! I had the mini pulled pork sliders which came on 3 little buns with slaw, pickles and yellow & green pepper slices. My husband had the brisket sandwich served on thick toasted bread. There is a BBQ sauce bar off to the side with 5 different sauces to choose from, each one better than the other. The shoestring fries were the perfect accompaniment.
There is a very nice indoor seating area and a good- size outdoor patio to enjoy. Reading their menu, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dinner special the day we went was pecan-crusted tilapia. At a car wash???
Go for the food and get a great car wash while you enjoy a fantastic meal.
