Good St. Louis rubbed ribs, tasty, meat comes off the bones, great beer selection need better signage due to being behind a car dealership only has seating outside on lake

Not youre best choice for BBQ. But a nice place to grab a beer. Food was in a word, ugh. But if youre in the area for the Harley Davidson store, stop by and have a drink.

A friend recommended this place to me and I have been there several times since, more or less everytime I get into Brandon. I love there pulled pork nachos, but I have had other food there to and its all good. Uncle Mikes is hands down the best BBQ you can get.

I would say that the food is delicious; the fried pickles and the smoked wings are great,but,I have officially learned my lesson and realized I should take my food "to go"; expect to be ignored and have to ask for sauces,napkins,more to drink,your bill,etc. the Brandon location is not what I would say has great service; take my advice: get...

This is quite possibly the worst BBQ that we have ever tried. Service is slow and unapologetic, servers would rather talk amongst themselves and guests than do their jobs. This has to be some kind of tax write-off because no one who wanted to be successful would serve the garbage they dish out and allow the poor service.

Had chicken sandwich...nope, won't have that again. Pulled pork sandwich, ugh. Next. Ribs were just okay. Garlic mash potatos tasted like they were rehashed mashed potatos. Strike 3. Pass on this resturant and try to find a better local bbq place.

I have tried this place at least three times. It keeps getting worse every time. The service is very poor. You might as well get up and cook your own food when your there. The waitresses wouldn't even return if you wanted to know where your food was. We had waited exactly 40 minutes to get our food. It was... More

I was served leftover ribs that had been refrigerated and not even heated through. The manager did not make any apologies, address the problem, make any adjustments, or even bother to come to our table. The restaurant said the owners were busy and couldn't be disturbed when I tried to let them know what happened. Plant City people don't like... More

Okay we made it to Uncle Mikes tonight. Uncle Mikes, as you might know, took over the former Cowboys Steak House on Rt 60 in Plant City. When we arrived, the greeter did not even look up at us, as she was busy ignoring the customers. When we did get her attention, she looked annoyed that we dare to disturb... More
