Met there for lunch. Fortunately we got there at 11, because it started to get a bit crowded after that. It's in an industrial part of Memphis, so it's a place you have to be going to, not close to normal shopping, etc. When you...More

Tom's is an excellent place to stop in and get some rib tips. They are amazing. The parking is scarce, but it is amazing food. Adam is one of the friendliest people you would ever want to meet. Thank you for a great experience.

Triple D had it right. Wonderful BBQ. Tom was delightful to talk to. Since we were first timers, he fixed us up with a couple of his signature treats. So glad we had time before the airport. Still thinking about that fried bologna....

Stopped because Guy stopped here! On our way to Wyoming and it was worth the stop. Little hole in the wall with friendly faces, good prices and better good. Little kick of spice in the sauce and tender rib tips. Our daughter got a Tuna...More
