Uncle Sam's has quality smoked barbecue. I had the chicken and it was great. They have steak fries which I loved and good sweet tea. What else could you want in a barbecue place.

I love eating here but you had better bring your appetite because they don't skimp on their portions. Definitely my favorite place to eat.

Everything about this restaurant screams "WE NO LONGER CARE." It USED to be fairly good. Yet, it has ALWAYS been WAY overpriced. A whole cream pie (fairly cheap ingredients) costs $20. The pie we got last night was running over on one side and the whipped topping did not cover a section of the filling. The server noticed this when... More

The advertisement on the sign said, "Best cheeseburgers in town". Uh, not so much. The cheeseburger was greasy and had massive amounts of mustard---I adore mustard, but even for me, it was way, way, way toooooo much mustard. The burger was so greasy that the bun became saturated with grease and mustard and had to be discarded----I had to eat... More

They have very good barbeque chicken & sqaush casserole. A little bit pricey but good taste. Nice employees

Our group of four shared BBQ pork and turkey, various side dishes, and a *huge* appetizer plate of fried pickles (in contrast to the skimpy servings I've seen at several Miami BBQ places lately). Meats are flavorful; some of the sides are pretty generic, maybe even canned. Friendly service. We didn't try the pies, which our companions insist are delicious.

Uncle Sam's BBQ is located on Rainbow Dr in Gadsden, AL. The food is very good and the staff is warm and friendly. The stuffed potato is very good.

Hands down, Gadsden's best Bbq! My husband and i keep returning because they have such great food. I had never heard of Bbq chicken nachos before Uncle Sam's, but was amazed at the amount of food and how delicious and addicting they are. Also the chicken fingers, mac n cheese, and house sauce are wonderful. I have never had the... More

great variety of foods at Uncle Sam's. Great mac n cheese, okra and baked beans. Bbq is good too, if you like the sweet but smoky taste.
