Brisket was awesome!

I was at this place once before years ago and I loved it. Come to find out it's now under new ownership (guess a guy needs a break every 60yrs or so!) it's just as good as it was last time. Cool little neighborhood too. Loved the meat and their beans were awesome too! Couldn't give it a perfect... read more

I must have came on the wrong day, but it horrible! I got a baked potato with chopped beef which was way over priced, but the meat was so dry and hard, a dog couldn't chew it! I don't know what kind of cheese that used but it was nasty! The potato must have been sitting under a heat lamp... More

Tried the 3 Meat Platter, best way to try the trinity of BBQ . .. All I can say, it was GOOD, brisket could have had less sauce and a bit more slaw wouldn't hurt either. Wife ordered a salad and was satisfied with it. Let's hope they keep this quality going.

Not since the historic Hitching Post BBQ restaurant on Okeechobee Road has Hialeah ever had a better quality of barbecue restaurant. We went there for the first time and were pleasantly greeted by what may have been one of the managers. He sat us down and went over the menu and spoke to us about their restaurant. Like the original... More

Uncle Toms may not look like much but don't let looks stop you from trying this BBQ joint. Brisket was delicious. Our table had chicken and ribs as well. Not one complaint. All said they would go back. We all agreed that this place gives you a great valued meal for the price.

Good solid BBQ, I had the pulled pork platter and the pork was solid. The Pork and Beans was very good. My draft beer was not as cold as it should have been. I sat outside at a picnic table to catch the breeze and enjoyed the sunset.

We went here because one of our black friends had to get a picture because of the name. The menu motto is "taking it back 65 years". Needless to say this place could really use a marketing consultant. They were out of chicken and cornbread. Overall, food wasn't half bad but certainly not the best BBQ I've ever had either....

A little bit pricey and small portions, but at the end the flavor justified the price. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. We will go back again

We happened on Uncle Tom's and decided to give it a try while letting rush hour traffic calm down. The smell as soon as you get out of the car is fantastic. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Music is good, a fun mix. Service was friendly and good. The important part, the food, was also very good. Wings were... More
