The owner was there, at the time of our visit. He gave us a GREAT welcome. The burnt barbecue tips are excellent! We have enjoyed several meals at Tom's. The catfish is a very good choice, also.

Stopped in for a bite to eat with an old friend. I had a pulled pork sandwich, potato salad and a Coca-Cola. The sandwich was packed with pulled pork, delicately flavored – on the mild side, per my request – and quite tasty. Tender. Juicy....More

I have lunch 2 or 3x a month at this location and the food comes out fast, hot, and always served with a smile by the wonderful help. I particularly enjoy the Italian Beef with mounds of hot peppers and drowning in Au Ju.

Stopped based on some reviews. It was just okay. Nothing special, we had a rack of ribs and a carne asada nachos. Ribs were dry, bbq sauce didn’t help. Nachos were good but ran out of meat. Staff was nice but the place was average...More

You can get AMAZING bbq at fair price in Arizona... I was in on a Thursday evening. The special is all you can eat rib tips for $13.99. These are Chicago style. Large meaty strips cut from the spare ribs. Smoky, tangy and fun to...More

Bad Chicago style BBQ. We had pulled pork it was like mush and the Brisket was to fatty to eat.Good sides of fries, slaw, baked beans were the best part of the meal. We will not be back .

A lot of options here. We intended to get pulled pork sandwiches but ordered a house variation of the same by mistake. Happily they were very good as well-served on a french baguette with Giardinare (spicy pickled veggies). Cole slaw is excellent and the other...More

Second trip was even better than the first. If you are looking for fancy silverware, and starched napkins, keep looking. If you want what is the best smoked pork in Mesa, and possibly Arizona, hit the brakes and walk in. Generous portions, great sides and...More
