Do yourself favor and stop by for the ribs. They were some of the best I have ever had and they area bargain. I would getting your own drinks from across the street, as the drink selection is slim.

Love uncle joes. Always the same. The best ribs anywhere. Prices haven't changed over the years. Prices don't change much either. Not very friendly but always take it to go!

What an amazing little place. Huge portions of the most delicious tender BBQ I've ever had. Careful with the mixed drinks, there very strong. The chicken and ribs were unbelievably good as well as all the sides; macaroni salad, corn, rice and beans, cold slaw. Defiantly highly recommended!

Be sure you don't walk by this small little unassuming joint in St. John! We were eating out at another restaurant and heard a couple enjoying some drinks that they were heading here for dinner.

I have lived on St John for 18 yrs, Uncle Joe's is the best BBQ hands down- service is a bit slow but worth the wait. His BBQ sauce is addictive :)

Wonderful food. Nothing much too fancy with regards to tables and ambiance, but the food made up for it.
