I eat here at least once per month. They have pork and chicken BBQ. I especially like their BBQ potato-either pork or chicken. They have a good selection of side dishes and they make their own tea and lemonade. There is usually a daily special that rotates. They also have bulk orders and I have gotten some to entertain guests.... More

I wanted to treat my boyfriend to the best BBQ Greenville had to offer. Tom's BBQ did not disappoint. The restaurant itself isn't the nicest (but in my experience, the best BBQ joints rarely are). The service was good and portions large. Exactly what I was looking for!

I've missed Smokin' Stokes for years, now... they were my favorite. And Tom's is actually better than I remember SS being! You gotta go! It's amazing

Folks are nice, good atmosphere and great sauce options..But, just OK BBQ. As a BBQ snob from NC, this semed like it was cooked in a gas grill instead of wood..

My wife and I went for lunch and we couldn't get what we wanted. It was about 12:45 pm which we didn't think was late for lunch and they did have others eating then too with people coming and going while we wee there. I couldn't get ribs because they weren't ready and they ran out of chicken that my... More

Really great BBQ pork ribs! Coleslaw is really good. Fresh fried pork rinds/skins almost melt in your mouth! I do not know anywhere else you can get fresh pork rinds/skins. Owner and staff and very friendly. Locals love this place! We go about once every six weeks.

Thanks for the great lunch. The food is good and the smell when you come in the door tells you that you are going to have some good BBQ. Tom is the one serving the food and comes and visits with you between customers. Its good food and personal, fun service.

Let me just say that I take my barbecue very seriously, even more so than most since I live in a barbecue wasteland. Beef and ketchup are not barbecue. That said, I rejoice when I have the chance to get bbq in the Carolinas-either state, North or South, both kinds work for me. So I was very excited to visit... More

I probably don't eat as much here as I could but it's not because of the food. We tend to dine out in the evenings and Tom's closes early and serves mainly lunch and late lunch hours. The food is another matter. I have never failed to get an excellent meal here. I'm from Memphis where they know BBQ and... More
