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

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

The staff has such a great sense of humor. They are spot on with their customer service skills. My husband got the pulled pork and I got the fish and chips. The baked beans were to die for and the pork was juicy. The fish...More

Ate at Tom's after I just happened to notice the place while driving by. Great food with excellent service and a huge variety. BBQ was good but not overly-smoked, the brisket and smoked chicken I had were good. I used the mild BBQ sauce for...More
