Because of trip advisor excellent reviews, we came to get a take out New Year's Eve. It was 2:15 pm .Line up to order was long but patiently waited our turn - 45 minutes to order. Waited and waited and waited after that. 1 hour went by after we ordered. Patiently kept waiting and then saw people who lined up... More

You can smell the lovely smoke and BBQ on most given days on US1 near the restaurant. There is so much love in their food. They have been so consistent in great food for my 20 years of enjoyment.

If you want real BBQ, you need to go here! Best ribs I've ever had, fell off the bone. Hubby had chopped beef and it was also delicious. There sauce has just enough zing to keep you dipping. Would recommend this place to anyone who loves some good BBQ. Don't go if you're in a hurry as you'll be waiting... More

Walked in greeted the employees behind the counter - response : not happy working there, think they were upset that Harry went to the boat parade and didn't take them. How did... More

Looked for a BBQ place near the beach, luckily we found this. Perhaps the best BBQ I have ever had at a very reasonable price.

I loved the ribs and collard greens! They were delicious, tenderly cooked to perfection. The music and decor were the best backgrounf to a superb show of Southern typical cuisine. I would recommend this place to all my BBQ rib loving friends!

Whenever we have a craving for barbecue ribs we go to Tom Jenkins. The meat is tender and falls off the bone. All of the sides are home cooked and we especially like the bake beans, potatoe salad and collard greens.

I was a regular visitor of this place, even when it was inconsistent on quality. Last Saturday waited on line for an hour to find that they did not had any meats available. It was 7 pm and they close at 10, so it was really upsetting they never said anything while waiting. Today, went again at 6:00 pm and... More
