Tom's Place-The Boca BBQ Favorite is Back in Boynton Beach!

It’s always nice to find something you thought was lost, and that was the case when we re-discovered Tom’ Place on Boynton Beach Blvd.  Larry and I were out the other day and stopped in to Tom’s Place for some Bar-B-Q.   We weren’t sure if this was related to the Tom’s Place that we knew when we first arrived in Boca back in the late 80’s.

Tom's Place in Boynton Beach

And I gladly report that yes... this is the reincarnate of Tom’s Place originally owned by Tom and Helen Wright.  However it is now run by Tom’s son-in- law and daughter, Gerard and Belinda Harris, the Wright’s youngest son, Kenny, and his daughter Kentiana.  

Located east of I-95 on Boynton Beach Blvd,  Tom’s Place still has the famous BBQ sauce, cornbread, pulled pork sandwiches, rib dinners, and homemade sides  liked black eyed peas, collard greens, potato salad, sweet potato pie and corn on the cob.  

Don’t let the bright orange catering truck throw you off.  You can drive up and order BBQ to go or eat inside.  There are plans to expand this location to include an outdoor dining patio as well.  

Tom and Helen Wright were not just about serving good BBQ, they were devoted to their family and their faith.  The original restaurant closed on Sundays so that they could cook meals for those in need in their community.  

The family still makes the famous Tom’s BBQ sauce which they sell at their restaurant.

Gabe- the food tastes like what I remember and you can buy a jar of sauce to take home!

Sally & David- their son told me the story of his dad feeding a gentleman who he's see hanging out by the dumpster.  That man ended up making something of his life and going on to have his own place.

BarbaraT- I had the sauce all over my face!!! Yummy!!!!!  Now, I'd bet you really are hungry now!

BARFF- oh yes... I had bbq sauce on my face, in my hair and all over my hands.

Craig- not holding my breath! LOL   Come on down.

Toni- Larry and I love going to non-chain places and trying new things.  This one was a surprise.  We'd thought they were out of business.

Scott- yes, and don't forget to call me!!!
