Went with a friend. Great sandwiches, if you're a bigger person you'll want two. The meat is chopped right in front of you.

This seems to be a place with two distinct crowds. According to the reviews it has either a cult-level appreciation from those who have been going for years, or a group who leaves saying, "I don't get it". I'll admit, it was a good chopped brisket sandwich and the owners were very friendly, but I'm comfortable with a 3/5 rating.... More

My son misses the BBQ so much he cooked up a brisket with Tom and Bingo's BBQ sauce in LA. I am taking him more bottles on my next trip.

Have heard a great deal about the food but several restaurants have equal or better food and definitely at a more reasonable price, Very small portions. I would absolutely do take out the few seats are unique (Uncomfortable and crowded) Do not know how their reputation got established..

Nothing fancy, just the best hickory smoked chopped beef sandwich in these parts. Order at the counter, load it up at the condiment bar, sit in an old school desk type chair and enjoy.

As other reviews indicate, the place is uniquely set up with it's 'school house chairs' up against the wall... That just takes some getting used to after a few visits, which the sandwiches will force you to do! They sell the Bingo Burgers as one of the hot-selling items, but I still opt for the sliced brisket sandwiches. I can... More

I stepped up to the counter, and ordered a sliced brisket sandwich. I slowly walked over to the condiment island, loaded my gift of love , with onions, a pepper, and bathed it with house sauce. I sat on what can only be described as the most uncomfortable elementary school desk. The first bite, had me hooked, I forgot about... More

Fun small "school house chairs" location. We had the beef brisket sandwich. Sauce was tangy and good. Beef could have been stacked thicker. Beef flavorful, but juice did not stay through sandwich. The bun is cheap and absorbs juice away from beef. This could been a much better sandwich, with controlled large portions and a better bun. Thanks for reading.... More

I don't know how long Tom and Bingo's has been here but I've been going for 35 years and every time I go, I'm always impressed that the chopped beef sandwich is still as good as it was the first time I tried it. Absolutely delicious. If you have not been in a while, go back and enjoy it again.... More

limited menu but if you want a good beef brisket sandwich, this is the place to get it. Their bbque sauce was good. Desks on either side of the restaurant let you sit while you eat, but not much of an enjoyable atmosphere. Recommend take out.
