Great Food and Service


Guy Fieri Video

Many of our guests find us from outside Memphis due to Guy Fieri's visit and his inclusion on his show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. We were also included in the Food Network's show, The Best Thing I Ever Ate. As well, we were featured in his book, Road Trip. Check out the videos of his visit on YouTube. You may purchase the book in the store. We are trying to get him to return next year to celebrate his 10th anniversary of visiting Tom's.

Real Testimonials

Linda and Dennis reside in El Paso, Texas. They operate the Hair Affair Hair Salon there. They were traveling to Nashville, Tennessee and looked for a good place to eat in Memphis and they found Tom's Barbecue was popular with Guy Fieri. Their hunt was over!

If you are in Memphis and do not stop...you are missing out!!! Our family stopped on our way back to Oklahoma. Everything was delicious! Even the coleslaw was unbelievable! 

And the staff was super friendly and helpful!
