Tom & Jerry's is a Chevron gas station and convenience store located at 2188 Highland Avenue, at the intersection with Arlington Avenue and 21st Way South. It was opened in 1981 by Tommy Numnum and Jerry Chambers. Numnum still operates the store with his son, Mark.

Numnum made an agreement with Chevron to operate the store at that location, but differed with the company on what items to stock. His preference to focus on coolers and convenience products won out. The station was the first Chevron location in the country to install pay-at-the-pump card readers. In addition to packaged foods and beverages, the store sells hot dogs and boiled peanuts.
