New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

Drive past this Fort Lauderdale roadside log cabin at lunch or dinnertime and you'll understand exactly why lines stretch out the door. The aroma of meat grilling over red oak and hickory is hard to resist, so why bother? Just find a spot in the tiny, crowded lot, order your ribs, beef, or chicken at the counter, and keep a sharp eye out for a seat - one is hard to come by. The sauce recipe, developed by the owners from old family recipes, is a thick, tasty blend of molasses, honey, and a variety of secret ingredients. Side dishes, from collard greens to macaroni and cheese, are uniformly excellent and artery-clogging (try the baked beans for a slightly more-healthful alternative). Don't miss Tom Jenkins' sweet potato pie for dessert.

Tips from foursquare

  • Lunchtime on Saturdays is ALWAYS packed! There’s even a line outside the door! But we can’t resist their chopped pork and ribs! It’s all about timing!

  • Rabsafari on 03/11/10

    The unique BBQ sauce makes Tom Jenkins a sure bet. Ribs are a must.

    Best bbq around. We drive up from Miami to indulge!

  • Bernadette S. on 10/11/11

    I had never had Collard greens before I went to Tom Jenkins. Now I can't get enough of them there. Spare ribs, double greens and corn bread all awesome. Top it off with a lemonade...the best BBQ ever!
