“Ew. Ew. Ew.”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

This place is gross. It looks like the place has never been updated since it opened decades ago. It just had a look of being unclean to it. Super dingy and dim.

The only redeeming qualities are that 1) it's open 24/7, and 2) it's SUPER cheap.

Their food is okay. Even for being super cheap, it's just okay. It's not that good There are other places you can go that are open 24/7, that come across as a lot cleaner to me.

“Great 24 hour”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Tom Jones has been in Brookhaven since I was a teen. We would stop in after AA movie just for fries. Now I take my grandson there and get the full dinners. The seafood always great, fish, shrimp and don't miss their crabcakes! Breakfast is all day and there are senior specials. This is the traditional family get almost anything restaurant. In over 40 years my family and I have never been disappointed.

“Good food at great prices!”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Great place to sit and relax with friends. The food is good and you can't beat the prices. My favorite is the Blue Ribbon Special, you get eggs,pancakes,sausage,toast,coffee and juice all for one low price.

“Where memories are made...and forgotten”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Great little place if your looking for a dive dinner. Can not go wrong with the blue ribbon special. Tons of great times here during the colllege years. Gets extremely packed with the church crowd but that is to be expected. Overall a great value and worth a 4am trip or two.

“Good food at great prices”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

If you're looking for somewhere to eat 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, then Tom Jones is your place. The Blue Ribbon special is an incredible bargain. Yes, it used to be under $3, but where else can you get two eggs, bacon, sausage, two pancakes, toast, coffee or tea,, juice or soda for 3.89? Yes, there are lines sometimes, because it's a popular place. The service is friendly, and the menu has tons of options. And yes, it's cash only, and their ATM has a fee, but regular customers know to get cash ahead of time. The decor is dated, but somehow that just adds to the charm. Where else can you get a huge breakfast for two and leave a tip for $10?
