Real Testimonials

We saw this establishment on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and they didn't disappoint. We loved the BBQ sauce so much we had to buy two jars to take back home and share. The ribs were so moist they fell off the bone. The flavor was great. Adam and staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back on our next visit to Memphis.  Richard Omahen

Best BBQ I have had in a long time! If you visit Memphis, you definitely should go visit Tom's Barbecue! I will definitely go back next time I visit and will bring some bbq back with me.

This place is absolutely amazing. The brisket was tender with the right amount of sauce. The macaroni was delicious. The turnip greens with stewed tomatoes and onions were very well seasoned. I highly recommend this place if you ever visit Memphis. Rhonda
