I've been watching for this place to open for a while. It opened two days ago and unfortunately I had some things to do today and couldn't order. I just stopped by to pick up a menu. Menu's won't be in till this afternoon.

So while looking at the menuboard above the counter, I asked the manager, a really swell guy, what style of bbq they make. That's when he told me it was the same as Tom's BBQ and Deli in Memphis. It has been featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives"

I am guessing the menu will be the same as the original

I wonder if they will have souse and Hoop cheese. About these items

I don't get down that way often, so hope someone can try it out. They are still getting set up this week. They won't have the BBQ Bologna until next week. About rag bologna

There's some favorable stuff on yelp and Chowhound about the original location. Here's a few Chowhound reports about Tom's in Memphis
